Top 10 Tips for Choosing your Wedding Florist

  1. Meet with two or three suppliers and make sure you get written quotes
  2. Prepare a list of questions to ask them about your requirements and any concerns
  3. Trust your instinct – you need to be confident the florist understands your requirements, your normally get the ‘vibe’ when you have found the one
  4. Set a budget and don’t be afraid to discuss it. Your florist will help guide you to varieties and designs that will be within your budget
  5. Together make a list of everything you would like then highlight the must haves – it’s really easy to get carried away and this will help you both focus on what’s important
  6. Have some images of designs you love – the more the merrier. This will help the florist understand your style. I always ask my clients to point out some designs that they really dislike too
  7. Be flexible – if you really want Peonies but you are getting married in November let your florist suggest more cost effective alternatives
  8. Find a florist who is happy to accompany you on site visits and meet up as often as required
  9. Look at their portfolio of work – each florist will have a way of working that produces a certain style – make sure you like their previous designs
  10. Check out their testimonials and see what other customers have to say
