Questions to Ask…The Florist

Happy Friday, love! Since today marks the second Pro-Tip here on the blog, we’ll be talking about the top five questions you should be asking your florist. Flowers are beautiful, but can be pricey and overwhelming if you don’t have anything to work off of. Whether it’s your first or final appointment, we hope these questions spark some ideas for you to hone in on your vision.

Ready? Let’s go!

What flowers are in season during my wedding?

While most flowers can be imported off-season, it may be cheaper to go with a flower combination that is in season, meaning that it’s in abundance at that time.

What are alternative options to a traditional bridal bouquet?

Some brides opt for a simple bouquet of greens and baby’s breath to save some cash, but it still comes out beautiful! Talk with your florist about what they can do for you.

What style of flowers goes well with the ceremony/reception venue?

Some venues call for a cleaner arrangement, while other gothic cathedrals might call for something more grand and dramatic. Many florists are artists and highly creative people, so ask them what they think goes the best so the entire aesthetic flows well together.

Can I repurpose my floral arrangements?

If you’re trying to save some money, use the ceremony flowers as reception centerpieces. The color scheme stays consistent and you get to kill two birds with one stone.

What other services do you offer?

Many florists offer draping and piping, can write out the calligraphy for invitations, and build ceremony arches if you ask them!
