Flowers make large events like weddings, anniversaries and baby showers truly magical!
Before you sign a contract or come to an agreement with a florist make sure to ask these important questions.
With this list in hand your florist will have a better understanding of what you want the event to look like and you will know what to expect!
What flowers will be in season?
Certain flowers might be more expensive or harder to get depending on what season your event is in. Your local florist will be able to tell you which flowers will be in season for your event.
Do you have a portfolio I can look at?
Some florists might have a portfolio or a website with pictures of previous events they have worked. Look through the pictures for inspiration and to see what the florist has previously done. Your florist will get a better understanding of what your vision is and how to create it as you point out centerpieces you like and certain colors that stand out to you.
What options do I have in my budget?
Florists are experts and can work miracles no matter what size your budget is. Your florist should be able to give you many different design options within your price range. Don’t be afraid to ask for more options, your opinion is valuable and will help your florist understand what you are wanting.
What flowers work well with my color scheme?
Certain flowers only come in certain colors. A florist can show you a wide range of flowers that will work with your color scheme. Together you can pick out beautiful flowers in the right shade.
How much time do you need to set up?
This question is important if you only have your venue booked for a small time frame. If you are ordering extensive design work and arrangements you might need to rent your venue for a few more hours. Talk to your florist and see what works for them.
Do you have a contract?
Contracts are important so that both parties agree on what is expected. Contracts are also helpful for cancellation and refund policies, and the payment process.
Your local florist is going to go above and beyond to accommodate your wishes. Take these questions will you to your appointment and have fun planning an amazing event!
