Planning a wedding can be stressful and time consuming, especially when it comes to shopping for wedding vendors. One thing you can do to make this process easier is by preparing for your meetings in advance and asking the right questions from the start!
When it comes to meeting with your potential wedding florists, there are a few key things to bring up in your initial consultation. Check out the following questions you might want to ask each wedding florist to determine which one is best for you!
Have you worked with my venue before or are you familiar with it?
It’s very helpful for your wedding florist to know your venue well enough to assist in giving you floral suggestions that would match the setting and style of the location.
What types of flowers or greenery might go well with my wedding venue?
Before booking a wedding floral designer, you should have a ceremony and reception venue already reserved for your big day! This will help you narrow down the style, theme and color palette you might want to have for the celebration. Talk with your wedding florist about what might go well with the setting and overall vibe you’re hoping to achieve.
What is your design style like?
If you prefer lots of texture or truly unique ideas, this question can help you narrow down who might fit better with the style you’re hoping to achieve.
What flowers will be in season for my wedding date?
This is a really helpful question, especially in keeping costs lower. Ordering specific flowers that are out of season on your date are often harder to obtain, and ultimately more expensive. A great follow-up question to this might be: “What flowers will be in season on my date that are similar in color/style to ______ [enter your ideal flower choice here]?”
Other Important Questions to Ask
Take a look at these additional topics you should cover with your wedding florist, from the basics to the details:
Are you available on my date?
What fees should I expect to pay for your services?
How far in advance should we book a florist?
How long have you been in business?
Do you schedule other events on the same day, and if so, how many?
What do you include as far as services?
Questions to Ask Yourself
At the end of each consultation, it’s important to ask yourself a few things. Do you feel comfortable with them? Do you like their style of work? Are you satisfied with the answers they gave you? It’s vitally important that you evaluate these things to make sure that once the big day arrives, you are happy with the results!
