9 Tips for booking a wedding florist
1. Research

Goes without saying, but it is important to research wedding florists in your areas. Start by doing some googling or hitting bing, to find “wedding florists in derbyshire” or “wedding florists near me.” Look for florists who specialise in wedding flowers and you can see a portfolio of their own work online.

2. Wedding Theme

Think about your wedding theme and the colours that you want to incorporate. Choose a florist who can work with your theme and create arrangmenets that compliment your style. If you have a particular flower in mind, don’t forget that this may not be available all year round.

3. Availability

Make sure that the wedding florist you choose is available on your wedding date. In is really important to book as far in advance as possible to ensure availability and plan to order your flowers.

4. Reviews and Recommendations

Read reviews for the florist and ask your family and friends for recommendations, asking other wedding suppliers may also have a list of recommended florists. By reading the reviews it will assist you in finding a wedding florist that is reliable, professional and provides the best possible service.

5. Consultations

Schedule a consultation with your chosen wedding florist to discuss your vision and get an idea of their style. Ask questions that you feel are important and don’t be afraid to ask for advice on flower choices and designs.

6. Budgets

Be clear about your budget and what you can afford. It is important to maximise the arrangements style and quaility whilst aiming for them to come within your budget boundaries. Many florists have minimum order values, some will display these on their websites, but it is important to ask at the outset.

7. Proposal

After your consultation, the florist should provide you with a proposal outlining the cost and details of the arrangements. This will give you an idea of what to expect and can help you make a decision.

8. Logistics

Think about your wedding day and the logistics of the delivery and venue set-up. Professional florists will already be acquainted with the wedding venues in the local area, all you need to worry about are things like button holes. Don’t be afraid to get the Groom to organise some movements.

9. Contracts and Order Forms

Once you have chosen your wedding florist and agreed on the details, make sure you sign an order form or contract outlying the terms and conditions. This will ensure both parties are clear of the expectations and responsibilities. Now will also be the time to pay your deposit.
