You must have bought flowers on multiple occasions – for your friend’s birthday, mother’s day or for your loved one. However, choosing flowers for your wedding is a completely different experience. Your wedding flowers will not only add beauty to the occasion but will also appear in all formal photographs and will be a part of your memory for years to come.
Even if you want to keep flowers at your wedding to a minimum, you will still need a bridal bouquet, boutonniere, corsages, some bouquets and centerpieces. Make sure you talk to multiple florists months in advance and also finalize your florist in time. This is because sometimes the desired florist might get booked months in advance. It is therefore advised that you book your florist as soon as you finalize your wedding date and book the venue. But choosing a good florist can be a little tricky. Here are some tips to help you to carefully choose an excellent florist:
Talk to your friends, family and church members to seek recommendations. You can even refer to various wedding magazines and create a list of good florists. Then, you can proceed with interviewing them and finalizing a florist for your wedding needs.
Meeting with florists is very important. This is the time you convey your wishes and desires, share your vision for the wedding and see previous works of the florist. It is vital that you must feel connected to the person so that your vibes match and you can work together amicably.
A good idea will be to research the Internet and take some images of the kind of decor you would want for your wedding. Taking a piece of fabric of the color theme you want for your big day, picture of your wedding dress, wedding invite and photos of the venue is also essential to coordinate the flowers accordingly. Here is a list of questions you should ask the florist before finalizing one for your wedding:
1. Do they offer any other decor arrangements, like candles, linen, lights, etc?
2. What flowers can last through the entire wedding without withering and look good till the very end?
3. How would they handle the situation if the selected flowers are not available on the D-day?
4. How can they assure that the flowers will be delivered on time and will be fresh?
Numbers are important. Make sure you have allocated the budget beforehand and know exactly how much you want to spend on flowers. Ascertain the quantity and type of flower arrangements you will need for the day so that you can decide on the kind and type of flowers you want.
