A Florist for your wedding
Written by Webmaster   


You have bought your bridal gown; you have reserved your reception venue, what’s next? Decorating your reception venue is an important task that you can’t start early enough. Your first step in decorating your venue is to find the right florist. It sounds simple, but it takes a lot of work.

When you interview florist make sure you don’t just take their word for it. You should see their previous work. An experienced bridal florist should have plenty of pictures in her portfolio. If the florist is unable to show you pictures of her previous work, you should walk. Decorating is too important to leave it to an inexperienced person.

The right florist is not only making sure the right flowers are delivered and arranged on your wedding day. A really good florist is an advisor about the overall decorating of the venue. Florist should have an eye for making any location look its absolute best, and it goes beyond arranging the flowers. Florist should be involved in selecting the right flowers, lights, candles, linens, decorative linens, and more. Of course, it doesn’t mean you have to agree to every suggestion. But, it certainly helps to get suggestions.

You can’t start soon enough for the right florist. It is certainly an essential part of your wedding planning project, and you should not leave it to the least minute. You should start interviewing florist as soon as you have reserved the reception venue. If possible, invite the florist to visit the venue with you to make suggestions about colors and decoration in general.

Make sure to have an idea of what you want by the time you hire the florist. Bring as many pictures, magazines, and catalogs you can to describe your requirements to the florist. It helps them too to understand exactly your likes and dislikes.

You should work within your budget. Make sure your florist understands how much you have allocated to flowers and decoration. When both you and your florist understand your budget, you don’t have to worry about surprises.

Ask for references, and check references. It is not enough to ask for them, so take the time and call the references and ask detailed questions regarding budgets, timeliness, customers service, quality, etc.

Put everything in writing, and be very specific. Make sure the name and color of the flowers, the time of delivery, the location of the delivery, and guarantees are part of the written contract. Always have a written and signed contract in place. It protects you and the vendor.
