Your wedding day is a symphony of love, and the flowers you choose will play a significant part in setting the scene for your day. Selecting the right wedding florist is crucial in ensuring your floral arrangements perfectly capture the essence of your love story. To make the most informed decisions and guarantee your floral dreams come to life, here are ten essential questions to ask your wedding florist:

 

1. Availability and Booking Process:

  • Is my wedding date available?
  • How far in advance do I need to book your services?
2. Portfolio and Style:
  • Can you show me examples of your previous work?
  • How would you describe your floral design style?
3. Customisation and Creativity:
  • Can you create custom designs based on my vision and theme?
  • Do you have creative suggestions based on your expertise?
4. Floral Recommendations:
  • What flowers are in season around my wedding date?
  • Can you recommend blooms that fit my colour scheme and preferences?

5. Budget Discussion:
  • Can you provide an estimate based on my budget?
  • How can we maximise the impact of the floral arrangements within my financial constraints?
6. Venue Familiarity:
    • Have you worked at my wedding venue before?
    • If not, are you open to doing a venue walkthrough with me?
    7. Logistics and Set-Up:
      • How will the flowers be delivered and set up on the wedding day?
      • What is the process for handling any last-minute changes or emergencies?
      8. Cancellation and Refund Policies:
      • What is your cancellation policy?
      • Do you offer refunds or allow adjustments to the floral plan if needed? 
      9. Coordination with Other Vendors:
      • How do you coordinate with other wedding vendors (e.g., the photographer and venue coordinator)?
      • Do you need to communicate with other vendors directly?
      10. Contracts and Final Details:
      • Can you provide a detailed contract that outlines all agreed-upon services and costs?
      • What is the timeline for finalising floral details and making any necessary adjustments?
