FAQ - For Build Your Own Mum

Q: Why does the price change after I get to the checkout page?

A: As you build your mum you will be adding things to your liking. The price will increase as you add things to your mum. The prices are based on per item instead of per mum like the designer mums and garters. This IS a more expensive way to go, there’s no secret in that. If your cost gets high, you may choose a designer mum to stay on budget. Homecoming only comes once per year. The decision is all up to you!

Q: If I order today, how long does it take?

A: You Tell Us! Use our “Need By Date” calendar in the order form below. Select your delivery date If the date isn’t selectable then choose the Rush or Urgent option this will move the date up sooner. If your date still isn’t selectable then call us to see if we can get you in.

Q: The size options only let me choose up to a triple mum, I want to order a Quad or Mega Mum, can I do that?

A: The Mega Mums options are located on our Mega Mum page. The build your own mum is for garters and mums that are single, double and triple (heart).

Q: I have more questions but I don’t see them answered here.

A: Please read our FAQ Page if you have more questions about our mums. You may also call us to ask and we do accept phone orders as well
