Tips and Tricks for Choosing a Wedding Florist
The floral arrangements are among the most memorable elements of a wedding. Preceded only by the bridal gown! So it is very important to put some time and effort into finding your perfect wedding florist. Having so many talented designers to choose from might make your decision a bit difficult. But here are some tips that might help.
Don’t rush the process
Make some time to consider your options and browse through the designer’s portfolios to get a good overall sense of their styles. As you might have noticed from our list, the style of each wedding florist is unique – some have a romantic old-timey approach, while others are modern and quirky. The previous work of a wedding florist will paint a good picture of their overall aesthetic and you’ll be able to tell if their vision matches yours.
Be careful about your budget
The first step is to discuss your budget for wedding flowers with your partner to ensure that you are on the same page. Next, be open and honest with your wedding florist. Knowing the extent of your budget will allow them to plan accordingly. Additionally, to tell you early on whether or not they can accommodate your requests. If your budget isn’t huge, it’s best to keep an open mind. If you were dreaming of a certain type of flower that is not in season, your wedding florist might have a better suggestion that will cost less. Seasonal wedding flowers are a great option, they are usually less expensive, will look more authentic, and are just as beautiful.
Create your own mood board
Before you discuss with your favourite wedding florist, it’s recommended to take some time to curate floral inspiration on platforms such as Pinterest. Once you know what your dream wedding should look like, add pictures of flowers and designs to your mood board. This visual brief will be greatly appreciated as it will help your wedding florist understand your needs and preferences. However, an experienced wedding florist might want to do spice things up a bit and use their signature style. Additionally, you should be open to it. After all, you are hiring them because you love their work and appreciate their talent.
Make a list of questions to ask your wedding florist before booking
Seeing so many beautiful flowers can make you forget what you want to ask your florist. A list of important questions might come in handy so here are a few examples.
- ‘Are you available on our wedding day?’
- ‘Are you familiar with our venue?’
- ‘Can you create sample arrangements?’
- ‘Do you require a minimum budget?’
- ‘Are you available for a venue walk-through?’
- ‘Do you have any recommendations to maximize my budget?’
- ‘Do you provide other décor elements?’, etc.
