Things to know before you get started.
6 Steps to Choosing a Florist
  1. 1. Determine your budget

    Knowing how much you are prepared to spend makes the decision process easier. Many couples choose to allocate approximately 10 percent of their total wedding budget for flowers.

  2. 2. Look at the florist’s work

    Visit each florist you are considering and examine their arrangements on display. Ask to see references and a portfolio of work.

  3. 3. Be specific with your requirements

    Discuss your event needs to make sure the florist is capable of meeting your expectations. Bring photographs, color swatches, and diagrams of the venue, along with pictures that reflect your style.

  4. 4. Stay on budget

    Specify your budget up front so your florist knows what is and isn’t possible.

  5. 5. Choose a florist who is helpful

    Your florist should be able to guide you through your available options, discuss alternatives to help you stay within your budget, and work with you closely to make your flower arrangements perfect.

  6. 6. Finalize the payment schedule

    Ensure you know how much deposit is expected, and determine the deadline for full settlement of the account.
