Helpful Advice

Start thinking about your wedding flowers early on in the planning process. This will ensure you have time to enjoy planning your wedding flowers and you have plenty of time to book in your first preference of florist. Remember that some florists are booked over 12 months in advance so it is worth gauging their availability as soon as you can.

Remember that your flowers will be in all of your photographs and have a huge impact on the feel of the ceremony and reception. After the wedding dress, the flowers are the next most notable item when you walk down the isle - yes, more than the jewellery!

Being prepared to meet in person with your florist always helps the briefing process to be more productive. Items you should bring with you if possible include invitation concepts, fabric samples, and pictures of inspiration. All of these items will help the designer to create a wedding concept beyond your expectations and ensure the planning is on track from the very beginning.

During the consultation ask as many questions as possible. Never feel rushed during the consultation and arrange for a second consultation if you are not completely comfortable. These consultations are to help the florist understand who you and your partner are and how this will be refected with the flowers and styling.

When it comes to delivery and set up, ensure that your florist is doing this personally or at least has someone experienced to do so. It is all too common for this task to be given to a delivery service that is unlikely to deliver on time or with care. If the quote to do this sounds too cheap, the delivery of your flowers has likely either been given to a delivery service or come at the cost of flowers and design time.

And finally, always choose a florist that you connect with and feel confident in. When a florist can truly understand your wishes anything is possible.
