Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life, and your flowers should be just as special. But with so many choices out there, it can be tough to know where to start. That's where your wedding florist comes in! They're there to help you bring your vision to life, but you need to ask the right questions to ensure you get the flowers you've always dreamed of.
Here are some of the top questions to ask your florist when planning your wedding flowers:
1. What is your design style?
Florists have their own unique styles, so it's important to find one that matches your vision. Do you want classic and romantic? Modern and minimalist? Whimsical and playful? Once you know your style, you can narrow down your search for the perfect florist.
2. Are you available on my wedding date?
This one seems obvious, but you'd be surprised how many brides forget to ask! Popular florists book up quickly, so make sure you inquire about their availability early on in the planning process.
3. What is your pricing?
Flowers can be expensive, so it's important to set a budget and stick to it. Ask your florist for a quote upfront, so you know what to expect. Be sure to get everything in writing, including the types of flowers, the number of arrangements, and any delivery or setup fees.
4. What flowers are in season on my wedding date?
Using seasonal flowers is a great way to save money and ensure you get the freshest blooms. Your florist can recommend the best options for your wedding date and color palette.
5. Can you show me some examples of your work?
A good florist will have a portfolio of their past work. This will give you a good idea of their style and what they're capable of. They should also be able to share examples that they've posted from past weddings and events on their social media like Instagram, Facebook, or Pinterest.
6. What is your policy on cancellations and changes?
Things don't always go according to plan, so it's important to know your florist's cancellation and change policy.
7. How will you keep the flowers fresh on my wedding day?
Your florist should have a plan for keeping your flowers fresh throughout the day. This may include using special techniques like floral tape or cold packs.
8. Do you offer delivery and setup?
Some florists will deliver and set up your flowers for you, while others will only sell you the flowers and leave the rest up to you. Decide what's best for you and your budget.
9. Can I have a trial run?
Some florists offer trial runs, where you can meet with them and discuss your vision in more detail. This is a great way to make sure you're on the same page before the big day.
10. What can I do to personalize my flowers?
There are endless ways to personalize your wedding flowers. You can choose unique flowers, add ribbons or other embellishments, or even incorporate special mementos into your arrangements.
Bonus tip: Be honest with your florist about your budget and your vision. The more information you give them, the better they'll be able to create the perfect flowers for your wedding day.
