Hi there!

Are you trying to grow your wedding or floristry business? It’s hard work isn’t it?  The majority of weddings  are held at weekends – after all our customers want to celebrate when they have time off work to enjoy it and of course recover from it!  This creates a special challenge for our industry – trying to make a weeks money out of a weekend is no mean feat!  So why not add wedding balloons to your services.  If brides are ordering flowers, chair covers or any other service from you why not offer them the options of balloons as well and grow the value of their order without having to find more customers.

Maybe you have had a little try with balloons and it wasn’t quite as simple as you thought – now you need to build confidence and skills to create amazing balloons that you are trust will last the duration of the wedding and give you amazing reviews.  Perhaps you would love to add them to your services but need good quality photos to be able to promote them on your website and social media?

LARGER VALUE ORDERS WITH GREAT PROFIT MARGINS REDUCES THE NUMBER OF CUSTOMERS YOU KEEP HAVING TO FIND & SIMPLIFIES YOUR BUSINESS

  • You are providing services for the bride already it makes sense to have add on services that will increase the value of the order!
  • Less stress for you! – Fewer customers with larger orders means less time taken sorting orders with lots of customers and chasing payments.
  • Brides prefer to deal with less suppliers – it means fewer deposits and less to co-ordinate in the run up to their wedding!  They are more likely to book suppliers who offer more services.
  • Offering engagement balloons is a great way to get brides in the first place. Whilst engagement parties are generally fairly low key they nearly always want balloons and this is a great opportunity to open the dialogue about their plans for their wedding.  Do a great job and they will definitely come back to you for the wedding!

WEDDING BALLOONS – DONE WELL – ARE IN HIGH DEMAND FOR WEDDINGS MAKE SURE YOUR BUSINESS IS CASHING IN ON THE TREND

  • You have only got to look on pinterest to see that brides are loving balloons right now.  Once thought to be outdated balloons are now creative, trendy and add huge wow factor to weddings. Nearly all my weddings will have at least an exploding balloon and a welcome balloon and half of my weddings prefer balloons to centrepieces.
  • If you are a venue decorator you may be missing out on brides who want balloons at their weddings as they will book with decorators who can provide it all rather than have to organise separate suppliers.
  • Wedding balloons can be made for collection or delivery.  If brides are already collecting or having flowers delivered by you it makes sense to expand their order with balloons. Many of my brides order balloons to be attached to fresh flower centrepieces or centrepieces the bride is making themselves.  Balloons are an easy add on to upgrade their existing order.
  • The course is being held in a wedding venue and will be dressed as if a real wedding with chair covers, table linens, top table etc allowing you to get fantastic images and videos of the finished product ready to sell straight away to your customers!

IT’S NOT JUST WEDDINGS EITHER – ALL THE SKILLS LEARNT ON THE COURSE CAN BE USED FOR BALLOONS FOR ALL OCCASIONS!

  • During the course I will teach you the skills and knowledge required to sell all types of balloons.  Whilst they will be themed for weddings once you go back to your business you will be armed with skills to create similar designs for birthdays, christenings and all sorts of other celebrations.  Simply switch the wedding balloon for a different print and you are set to go!
  • Offering balloons is a fantastic way of getting customers into your shop if you are a florist.  Whilst they are there placing their order they will be exposed to everything else you do.  It’s easy then to suggest flower bouquets for the special birthday girl or flower gifts for the mother of the bride etc Creating great value orders and allowing you to build better relationships with your customers.
  • I have customers who come back to me time and time again.  I have provided services for every life event for them and for the rest of their family – birth of their child, birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, christenings and even funerals.  They know I supply everything they need and trust me to do an amazing job so come back time and time again!

ABOUT SONIA

 

My love of balloons started about 8 years ago.  It was my twins birthday and they announced they wanted a balloon twister for their party.  With only 2 weeks until the party no-one was available so I grabbed a bag of balloons, a pump and an instructional DVD and started to make balloon models.  I was hooked!  I loved the fact you could make anything out of a bag of latex and air!

I joined the Balloon Artist Guild and attended some of their lecture days – this opened up a whole new world to me…. From there I started making anything I could from balloons.  People asked if they could buy my balloon art and the business was born!  Passionate about developing my skills to the highest level I never said no to any customer – even some of the strangest requests!  Since then I have made so many different designs from full size elephants, cars,sand castles, naughty balloons and hundreds of characters to elegant wedding designs and so much more. 

James Lockyer WEDDINGS

Weddings came into the business several years ago when existing customers asked me to provide helium balloons and decorate their weddings.  I attended Qualatex courses to give me the foundation skills I needed and the wedding and venue decor side of the business was born.

​Since then I have invested thousands into my education to learn the basic techniques which can then be applied to so many different situations. The entwined hearts was the first statement piece I added to my portfolio and is my number 1 best selling wedding statement piece.

​Every month I am priviledged to inflate thousands of balloons, drape hundreds of meters of fabric and prepares thousands of flowers to create amazing wedding receptions as unique as my brides and grooms. I am humbled to be part of the biggest day in so many people’s lives!

I have been using Sonia’s Balloons for many years now, Sonia has supplied balloons for my sons christening, birthday parties and my 30th Cowboy Themed Party.  Sonia is very talented, reliable and very professional. Sonia has made balloons in different themes, different occasions and I wouldn’t use any one else. I am also a supplier / hirer of equipment therefore see a lot of suppliers providing balloons and Sonia is by far the most creative, talented and organised that I have come across.

If you are looking to learn the craft, you couldn’t ask for a better tutor. With Sonia you will receive a wealth of knowledge and experience, I know Sonia is very calm and patient. If you are looking to start your own business Sonia will give you the tools to get going.

Elite Venue

The course will be run at the Elite Venue Gravesend.  This is a weddings and parties venue and a regular venue I decorate for weddings.

​One of the key objectives for myself attending a course has always been to acquire quality photographs that can be used online and in print to attract more customers.  For this reason we have chosen a proper wedding venue rather than a local hall.

​The venue will be dressed as though it is a real life wedding creating the perfect backdrop to photograph everything you have learnt.
