Most people spend thousands of dollars for florist service at their wedding. Flower makes a wedding venue look beautiful. The bride also carries a bouquet, and there are countless ways to put the flower into good use at a wedding. If there is a wedding coming up and you are looking for a good florist, then here are some tips for you.
Come up with ideas
You should first come up with ideas for floral decorations. You should choose the types of flowers you want, the colours, and other details. You can look at wedding magazines or wedding albums of friends or relatives to get ideas.
You should decide on the flower arrangement styles. You can browse through Pinterest to get ideas for wedding decoration. There is an online tool called ‘Bridal Bouquet Builder’, which you can use to create a 3D version of your wedding bouquet.
Find out how many types of flowers you need
If you want to go with the traditional style of floral arrangements, then you need a bridal bouquet, bridesmaid bouquet, centrepieces, venue décor, and cake décor. You should have an idea about how many flowers you will need to do the entire decoration.
As a rule of thumb, you should keep 8 to 10% of your entire wedding budget for florist services. Delivery and installation fees will be added. You should choose the florist service that fits within your budget.
You should ask your friends, family members, colleagues, and neighbours if they know of any good florist service in town. If someone you know got recently married, then you can ask that person about the florist service they chose. You can look at local magazines to find advertisements for florist services.
Communicate your ideas
Once you have shortlisted several florist services, you should arrange a meeting with them and communicate your ideas. The florists’ work or creativity must match your preference and ideas. Also, you should try to fit the florist service within your budget. So, pick the one who agrees to do everything without exceeding the budget.
You should be impressed with the previous works of the florist before you finalize a deal. That way, you will feel confident that the florist will do the work just the way you wanted.
