Deciding on your Wedding Florist – Advice and Recommendations

Flowers will probably be one of the most important and the most stunning decorations at your wedding. Finding your wedding florist is not as easy as calling up the local flower shop and putting in an order. It’s important that you make sure you are getting the right florist for your wedding. Follow these recommendations before you make any rash decisions.

Figure out your Wedding Floral Needs

It’s important that your wedding flowers blend seamlessly with your wedding theme. Your own personal style should have a big impact on the types of flowers you choose too. Look up photos of different styles and try to figure out exactly what it is you’re looking for. It’s also important to make a list of what you need flowers for; do you want flowers at the ceremony and the reception?

Create your Budget

Once you’ve got a good idea of what type of flowers you want and how many you hope to have, you can try figure out a realistic wedding floral budget. Flowers and decor usually take up 10% of your budget so try not go overboard. It’s really important that you have a general idea of the amount you are willing to spend before contacting florists.

Get Recommendations

The best way to find good reliable florists is to ask your friends and family members for recommendations. If you know anyone that’s gotten married, that has a similar taste to you, call them up and ask for some advice. Keep in mind the location of their wedding, to ensure it is feasible to use the same florist.

Shop Around

Flowers can be expensive so you don’t want to spend more than you need to by not shopping around. Ask them to write up a couple of different proposals that you can consult when you’re making your final decision. Once you have all the information you need, decide whose your best match. Ideally you should be looking to finalise this 6 months before your wedding.
