wedding florist basics

The right wedding florist will transform your space, so it's important to make sure you find a wedding florist who understands your wedding vision. First, do your homework to find wedding florists in your area. Talk to recently married friends and family and use this local resource guide. Once you have a few options, call and make appointments to visit nearby wedding flower shops. This is your opportunity to make sure the florist is someone you feel comfortable with. Ask plenty of questions, such as who will actually create the arrangements and how many other weddings they will be working on around your wedding date. It can also be helpful to find out if the wedding florist has done events at your venue before. If not, be sure to provide photos of the venue so they can get an idea of what style of arrangements you are looking for. Your wedding florist should also be able to provide photos of past weddings he or she has done to give you an idea of what types of arrangements they can create. Also make sure to bring along photos of flower styles you like as well! Next, it's times to talk flower types. Before you get your heart set on a specific flower, know that in-season flowers can dramatically cut your flower costs -- so be flexible. Fortunately, a good florist will help you figure out what types of flowers work best for your style and budget. For example, garden roses can often substitute for pricey peonies, and tightly packed carnations can mimic hydrangeas. Once you have found the right florist for your wedding, it'll be time to book your florist. Don't wait too long to do this -- the best florists fill up fast!
