Why Choose Mews Designs?
We love what we do and we want you to be happy.
It's all in the family. Everyone at MEWS is a NC native. Marsha holds a degree in Advanced Wedding Design from Floral Design Institute and stays current with additional training. A word from Marsha, "I have a passion for what I do. The flowers I received on my wedding day were not at all what I ordered. I was heartbroken and don't want that to happen to you. I love what I do. I work from a home studio with my three rescue cats Grace, Jet and Meg and our Border Collies, Ginger and Nordic. You can follow them on Instagram. @mewsdesigns_mascots . I promise they will not all meet you at the door. As a matter of fact, you will only meet them if you want to. I love meeting my brides, groom and their families, making a connection that is genuine and exciting. Planning together is my favorite thing next to designing."
Marsha's daughter, Jes, is co-designer/owner and also helps with design and installation. A few words from Jes..."I feel so blessed to work for MEWS. It's my creative outlet. I am a former teacher but I wish I had chosen floral design as a career from the beginning. Creating arrangements from the beautiful flowers God created is such a joy. I frequently have new favorites...new favorite flower, favorite arrangement and favorite bouquets. I loved my wedding, however, since we had not started our business yet, I wasn't aware, of all the different flowers and styles available. It is fun thinking about what I might choose if I had a "do-over wedding" (with my sweetie of course). MEWS would definitely have been my florist! lol."
Marsha's husband Kent is her engineer, heavy lifter, book keeper and main support. He often works on the floral installations. Her son, Erik is the marketing genius. Michael, Jessica's husband, helps with late night pick ups.
In 2017 we were so blessed to add a former MEWS bride and friend Julianna Conlon to our team. Julianna received her degree from the Savannah College of Art and Design and what an artist she is with flowers and design. We have been blessed with Juli and look forward to a long association.
We are exclusively a wedding design studio, not a storefront, weddings only.
Your flowers are ordered and used only for you. Marsha takes a limited number of weddings, only one per weekend. She does all the designs herself. Her assistants and co-designer help with the details following her specific instructions. No left over flowers from other weddings, events or sales are reused. Your flowers are fresh and long lasting.
Our minimum order for florals is $3,000.
We're transparent with pricing. The prices of flowers vary widely depending on the flower types and the labor required in the arrangement styles. In general, brides can expect to spend between $150-$300 for their bridal bouquet. Bridesmaids vary from $75 to $200. Boutonnières and Corsages range from $10 to $35. Arrangements for your ceremony can vary depending again on the type of flowers and the amount of time needed to design. Most ceremony flowers start at $200. Floral centerpieces start at $75. MEWS Wedding Florist dedicates our business to one wedding per weekend.
The average wedding flowers will run about 10% of your total wedding cost. Some couples opt not to decorate the ceremony site but instead focus on the reception flowers and let the bridal party be the beauty of the ceremony. Check out our Rentals under Galleries in the drop down menu.
