10 Tips For Working With Your Wedding Florist

Jan 10, 2020

Tip 1: Start With Inspiration

Before meeting with your wedding florist, gather inspiration for your dream wedding flowers. Browse through wedding magazines, Pinterest boards, and wedding blogs to find floral designs that resonate with your wedding theme and overall aesthetic. Communicating your preferences to your florist will help them understand your vision better.

Tip 2: Research and Choose a Reputable Florist

When selecting a wedding florist, do thorough research to find a reputable and experienced professional. Look for online reviews, ask for recommendations from friends or family members, and check their portfolio to ensure their style aligns with your preferences. A trusted florist like Be Our Guest Entertainment can bring your floral vision to life.

Tip 3: Have a Clear Budget in Mind

Establishing a clear budget for your wedding flowers is crucial. Discuss your budget openly with your florist during the initial consultation. This will help them provide you with options that fit within your price range while still ensuring stunning floral arrangements.

Tip 4: Book a Consultation Appointment

Schedule a consultation appointment with your chosen florist to discuss your wedding floral needs in detail. During this meeting, share your ideas, show them your inspiration, and discuss your budget. A face-to-face consultation allows your florist to understand your preferences better and offer personalized recommendations for your special day.

Tip 5: Be Open to Suggestions

While it's important to have specific ideas in mind, be open to suggestions from your wedding florist. They are the experts in their field and can provide valuable insights based on their experience. Trust their expertise and consider their suggestions to create a more cohesive and stunning floral design.

Tip 6: Communicate Your Wedding Theme and Colors

Clearly communicate your wedding theme and color palette to your florist. This enables them to select flowers, greenery, and decor elements that complement your overall vision. Whether you're aiming for a romantic, vintage, modern, or rustic theme, conveying your preferences will help your florist curate the perfect arrangements for your big day.

Tip 7: Discuss Flower Availability and Seasonality

When discussing your floral choices with your wedding florist, consider the availability and seasonality of the flowers you desire. Certain blooms may be more expensive or difficult to find depending on the time of year. Your florist can guide you toward suitable alternatives that fit your theme and budget.

Tip 8: Consider Additional Décor Elements

In addition to floral arrangements, discuss other decor elements with your florist. This may include aisle decorations, altar designs, reception centerpieces, and more. Collaborating with your florist on these details ensures a cohesive and visually stunning wedding aesthetic.

Tip 9: Review and Understand the Contract

Before finalizing your agreement with your wedding florist, carefully review the contract. Ensure that all the details, such as delivery time, setup, breakdown, and any additional fees, are clearly stated. Understanding the contract will help avoid any confusion or misunderstandings later on.

Tip 10: Trust Your Florist on the Day of Your Wedding

On your wedding day, trust your florist to execute their floral designs with perfection. Avoid micromanaging and allow them to work their magic. Having confidence in your florist will not only alleviate stress but also ensure that your wedding flowers are beautifully arranged and breathtaking.
