Posted on March 01 by Allison Dupree

Flowers play a big role in your wedding day. Through your bouquet, boutonnieres, centerpieces and decor, your theme and vision can effortlessly be displayed with the help of a fabulous florist!

What to do beforehand:

  • Pin, pin and pin some more- Deciding what style you want for your wedding flowers can be super difficult.
  • Reviews- Read reviews of your florist, look at their website and social media, ask family and friends (or our bride group!). Chances are, someone you know or are connected to has used them before and will be able to give them first hand opinion

What to bring:

  • Lots and lots of pictures!
  • An open mind to different flower types and color schemes

What to ask:

  • What flowers are in season for my wedding?
  • If a flower is “out of season” can you still get it?
  • How long do most flowers last?
  • Do you have a way to reuse flowers from the ceremony in the reception space?
  • Difference in price between greenery and flowers
  • Are rentals included in your price?
  • Extra fee for flowers to put on your cake
  • Will they make flower crowns for you, your girls or your flower girls? (Or dog, no judgement here)
  • How many weddings do you do in one day? One weekend?
  • How large is your team?
  • Set up and transportation fees
  • Ask when you can see in person samples

After your appointment:

  • Keep searching- Take a look at their social media and website again now knowing all of the information and see if everything is still just as you imagined!
  • Talk to friends and family about their experiences with flowers at weddings. Chances are they have had some experiences with corsages or centerpieces and can help you make a decision
