Working with your florist is one of the most important tasks of wedding planning. Flowers and the way that they are arranged can really help set the tone for your wedding, so it’s definitely worth spending the right amount of time to get it right. Your florist will of course be doing the heavy lifting, but you will still have some decisions to make. While every situation is unique, here are a few tips to help you have the best experience with your florist.
Trust the Expert: Working as a florist isn’t just about throwing some flowers together. It’s an art that takes years of learning and practice. Once you’ve had the opportunity to explain your vision (if you have one) and preferences, trust your florist to deliver a design and a package that will work for you. While you may not be able to get that exact flower that you saw in that Pinterest board because it’s out of season, the end result will be something amazing created by an artist just for you.
Be Flexible: Along with trusting the experts, you’ll also want to avoid being too rigid in the choices you’re making. You may need to adjust budget to get exactly what you want, or you may need to go with something less ornate if budget is a concern. Either way, be open to new ideas that may work better for your particular circumstance. This will help you avoid the cookie-cutter feel and you’ll get a much more authentic look for your special day.
Know What You’re Getting: Finally, you’ll want to be sure you’ve had a proper consultation and understand exactly what you’re getting for floral arrangements. Colors, sizes, amounts, delivery dates and times, etc. should all be spelled out in your contract. You don’t want to be surprised and end up with any miscommunications. Be sure you’re comfortable with your florist and that the final delivery is going to be what you expected.
Working with your florist can be a lot of fun, and certainly provide you with one of the best ways to make your wedding stand out. Not all florists are created equal, so it’s a good idea to get a feel for how you will work together. If you spend the time to choose a florist that’s right for you, you’ll end up with a final result that will be truly spectacular. Why not schedule a consultation and see if we could be right for you?
