Before you meet with a florist…
It is important to do your homework before you meet with a florist. Research what types of flowers you like, names of flowers and what arrangements you would like.
Finding Your Florist
You should book a florist early on in your wedding planning since they book up fast, especially if you are getting married in peak season.
Book an appointment so you can get to know them and see if they can bring your vision to life.
From the bouqet to the table décor, a big chunk of your wedding budget will be your flowers. It is important that you inform your florist what your budget is. Your favorite flower may be out of your price range or are not in season but luckily some flowers have look-alikes.
Be specific when speaking to your florist. Many flowers come in all shapes and sizes, so it is very important to specify what you like and dislike.
Coordinate the time that your flowers are delivered with your photographer’s arrival. You want to make sure that your vision is captured.
Make sure your flowers don’t take up too much room. You don’t want your tables to be empty, but you want your guests to be able to see each other!
