  • When you have the venue booked and date confirmed check availability with Feehilys. Certain dates will be busier than others, so make sure you have your name put down first. If your wedding date falls around a florist’s busier times, Christmas, Valentines, Mother’s Day or Easter be careful as any florist is more limited with what they can take on.
