Your wedding florist should always be able to share information to help you make decisions about creating your beautiful wedding presentation.
Start early one year to six months before your wedding.
You should make appointments with your choice of wedding florists early. At your first consultations you should have some ideas for your wedding theme and have a pretty good idea of your wedding venue or location. Your choice of venue or location for your wedding is very important to planning your wedding event. Your flower presentation will often be determined in part by the location of your wedding facilities.
You should have some idea of your budget for flowers prior to you first consultations. Your wedding florist should be able to guide you with your ideas, and give you some estimates of cost based on your choices.
Choices of flower varieties you would like to use along with colors that suit your tastes will be helpful in your discussions with your wedding florist. Remember flower choices can be determined by the time of year, because flowers are seasonally available.
You should choose and book your wedding florist within a few days after consultation. The ideas and discussions are fresh and memorable between yourself and the florist. You should also remember, most wedding florists can only perform a limited number of wedding events. You will need to “block out the day” with your florist, usually with a deposit. Most wedding florists will rarely take on more than two weddings in a day, avoid the disappointment of not having your first choice of wedding florists by responding early.
