Want to learn how to book a wedding in 10 days (or less)?
How To Write Proposals That Sell is a downloadable pdf that shows you how I write wedding proposals and book clients within 7-10 days.
Inside the course, I break down the “Anatomy of a Wedding Proposal” so that you can create a professional proposal that includes the most important parts without giving away all of your best ideas for free.
- You’ll see a real wedding proposal, an invoice with real descriptions & pricing, plus how I present the proposal & contract in an e-mail to create a sense of urgency.
*Plus you’ll get 2 Bonus Videos that show you:
- 3 Quick & Easy Ways To Make Mood Boards
- How I Present A Quote Without Coming In Over Budget
This course walks you through my booking process, so that you can build a wedding proposal without giving away too much detail or investing too much time before you’re under deposit.
Real Florists Say:
“I have been hating proposals for five years now because I put so much work and detail into them. Your templates have inspired me to just simplify and I love it!”
Templates Save You Time!
If you’re tired of people price shopping your quote or you currently spend longer than 1-2 hours on an initial proposal, you will love this proposal template!
Does any of this sound familiar?
- You stress about customers “shopping around town” looking for the lowest price
- You delay writing (and sending) proposals
- Perhaps you agonize over how much detail to give away before clients put you under deposit
- Or you invest too much time on proposals for people who aren’t a good fit
- You’re afraid you’ll lose a wedding because your quote was “too basic”
The truth is, Writing a proposal is a time commitment.
When the client hasn’t given you a deposit yet, and there’s no guarantee you’ll get the gig, I know that sometimes you might push it off. And delaying the time it takes to send a quote is not good for business!
A lot of time and preparation goes into a proposal before booking an event and over the years I’ve learned how to streamline my pre-booking process while still delivering a personalized quote for my customers. That’s why I put it all together into this easy-t0-follow pdf you can access right away.
Writing proposals should not be painful.
When I started my floral business, I’d spend about 6-8 hours putting together an initial proposal for a wedding. Before a customer was even under deposit, I’d agonize over every little detail and then, when a client didn’t book with me, I felt so deflated because I’d already invested so much time!
I spent about 8 years struggling through how much detail to share before a client booked, but now, after 2 decades in business, I write proposals in 1 hour or less with my easy to follow template.
The sooner you send the proposal, the sooner you book the client.

You can apply this approach to any current proposal software programs you may already use. You do not need special software, however, to create a beautiful, branded proposal.

2 Quick tips to starting proposals:
1. Give yourself a deadline to write and send proposals for new clients. Try to aim for 10-14 days from the time they first contact you to the time they sign a contract and send a deposit.
2. Likewise, give yourself a deadline on how much time you’ll dedicate to a proposal. I think less than 2 hours is a good goal. (Even with a template a good, customized proposal takes time. Consider 1 hour to generate a proper invoice, 1 hour for proposal side.) A proposal should be professional. It should be representative of you/your work/your brand. Proposals should not be painful.
