It’s not about finding the perfect florist, it’s about finding the right florist – which means asking the right questions. Here are five must ask questions and topics to cover with your venue or florist before picking ‘the one’ and saying I DO!
Do your research
It’s important to research not only the florist you want to use, but also the cost of flowers, and what is in season. This will help you understand how much of your budget you should allot to flowers and what is available at the time of your wedding.
Base your décor on your venue
Pulling décor inspiration from your venue is the best way to achieve a cohesive look. For this couple, we went with bright whites and a pop of teal to play off of the crisp green lawn. The Four Seasons Orlando is prestigious on all levels and the table décor showcased lush floral and unique vessels that brought the look of modern luxury to life. Nestled in the heart of central Florida, we took the tropical landscape into consideration and incorporated monstera leaves into our design to really drive home that Florida feel.
Be transparent about your budget
Flowers are typically a big portion of your budget. Its best to have an idea of how much you are willing to spend on your flowers before meeting with a florist. You will often find a florist specifically ask what your budget is. This is so we can help you get the most for your money. I love how happy my clients get when I present a proposal that capture their wants and needs while also keeping them under budget.
Let your florist guide you
It’s important to find the right florist first and foremost. Someone (or a team) who understands your story and the look you are trying to achieve. Be open minded to suggestions that may fit your look or budget better. Petals By Design is an event only florist and because we are by appointment only we are able to really sit down with our client and dive into their love story, and help design a look that not only compliments the venue but represents them as a couple.
Don’t get stuck on a specific flowers
There is an abundance of beautiful and unique flowers available throughout the year. Your florist will offer their professional advice on ways to create your look with what is in season and keeping you in budget by giving you different options. It’s important to consider all options before getting stuck on one specific flower.
