It’s important to work close with your wedding florist, we’ve got 10 fab questions to ask your florist!
Using seasonal blooms means your flowers will be in the best condition, and they’re cheaper than out-of season varieties.
Which flowers will suit my wedding theme?
Ask your florist to show you a selection of flowers that will fit the bill, and photos of arrangements they’ve made for similar celebrations.
Can you source any props I might want to use?
If you want your flowers arranged in particular containers, such as watering cans or oversized Martini glasses, ask if your florist can get hold of these early on.
Will you make up a sample of my bouquet?
The best way to ensure that your chosen arrangement works for you is to get a sample made.
Are your prices the same all year round?
If you’re getting wed around Valentine’s Day or Mothering Sunday, you may pay a premium price.
Will you deliver and set up my flowers?
Most florists will deliver the flowers directly to the venue, but may make a delivery charge on top of the final valuation.
Can I reuse my ceremony flowers for the reception?
Transporting your flowers from the ceremony to reception venue is a good way to make your budget go further.
Will you label the bouquets and buttonholes?
A simple name tag (“groom’ or ‘best man’) stapled to each arrangement will ensure that everyone ends up with the right posy or buttonhole.
Will you visit my wedding venue with me?
By visiting the venue, your florist will get a better idea of the arrangements and colours that will work on the day.
Can I have an itemised quotation?
This helps you establish which elements are essential, and where you can make savings, if needs be.
