 Ever wonder why our company is called “The Flowerman” or who The Flowerman really is?  Our founder and owner is an enthusiastic and visionary man named Steve Smith.  Steve married into the flower business over 25 years ago when he exchanged vows with his beautiful wife, Jane.  Jane’s family owns a very large flower farm, so Steve and Jane helped the family with their wholesale business by selling the sunny flowers at local farmers’ markets… specifically the 2nd Street Public Market in downtown Dayton.  Steve is a natural salesman, and now everyone in Dayton knows The Flowerman!  (We often hear, “Oh! Your boss is the man who stands on top of things at the market and shouts and waves his arms about the flowers!” … Yep, that’s him!! 🙂 ) 

 

We thought you’d like to see this video created by activedayton.com that features our boss, The Flowerman himself, Steve Smith!  Enjoy this short interview with the man who created the Do-It-Yourself floral process, and be sure to stop by the market sometime to say “Hi!” and make some eye contact.  He’d love that! 🙂

Definitely! Around 85% of our Do-It-Yourself brides have never worked with flowers before in their entire life, so you are not alone! The good thing about working with The Flowerman is you don’t have to know how to do or make ANYTHING… honestly. Quite a few brides don’t even know the names of all of their flowers, and that is perfectly fine! We don’t expect you to know anything, and we start from square one. It’s our job to help you learn and create without worry. All basic floral supplies are included with your order, you have free overnight access to our coolers, and our DIY coaches are right there every step of the way to show examples and keep your construction party moving quickly and without confusion. It absolutely COULD NOT BE ANY EASIER! If you really are biting off more than you can chew, we’ll be sure to tell you in your initial consultation so you can switch to a designer or combination wedding… our design team is always available to make some or all of your pieces for you!

(If you do come in knowing a thing or two about flowers, or if you bring someone along in your group who’s designed before, don’t worry. We don’t have to show you examples of everything if you already know what to do. We provide as much instruction as you need and ask for, but if you don’t want any help, then by all means… design away! Looking forward to helping you construct some flowers soon! 🙂 )
