Title: Tips for Choosing Your Wedding Florist

Tips for Choosing Your Wedding Florist
  • The style and aesthetic appeal of your wedding
    is of utmost importance, and flowers are at the
    heart of this appeal. Because the flowers are so
    important, so is the florist.

  • Wedding florists are aplenty, and all have
    their own portfolio, specialties, experience,
    expertise and style. So, choosing the right one
    may not be the easiest decision. However, there
    are some quick guidelines you can follow to help
    you find the perfect florist for your special
    day. These guidelines include considering your
    budget for flowers, determining your needs,
    establishing a style and considering the
    florists proposal.

Consider the Flower Budget
  • When planning your wedding, the budget should
    be a constant consideration. However, you must
    understand how wedding budgets work as well as
    create a budget thats detailed and organized.

  • The flowers should have their own budget
    within the budget. Generally, the wedding décor
    and floral arrangements take up about 10 percent
    of your entire budget.
  • But, if you arent flexible with your choices
    or choose flowers that are out of season, that
    number could increase exponentially.

  • Besides that, be sure to include all possible
    charges in your budget planning, such as taxes,
    setup and breakdown fees and tips. You could
    present your final number to your chosen florist
    or simply gather quotes from the candidates.
    Ideally, youll want a florist that offers
    affordability, dependability and high-quality
    floral arrangements and service, such as someone
    like Heather De Kok.

Determine Your Needs
  • Determining your needs is not just about
    figuring out what flowers to choose, its also
    about figuring out what jobs you want the florist
    to perform.

  • The florist could simply create the bridal
    bouquet and coinciding floral arrangements or
    they could provide flowers for the ceremony,
    reception tables, centerpieces and more. However,
    what the florist does and even what type of
    florist you choose will depend on your wants and

  • For example, floral designers are more
    suitable for designing floral centerpieces and
    ceremony aisles. On the other hand, if youve
    left this job to the planner, then the florist
    can simply use their designs to create the most
    beautiful arrangements possible.

Establish Your Own Floral Style
  • Florists have their own way of doing things
    and their own styles, but their style might not
    match up to your style. So, you should establish
    your own style before hiring a florist.

  • Your style could be modern, whimsical,
    romantic or rustic it doesnt matter if its
    your own. Some florists may specialize in
    detailed ornate centerpieces and arrangements
    while others may only create minimalistic pieces.
    To determine which style is best for you, check
    out their portfolios or photos of any of their
    past events and arrangements.

Compare Proposals
  • Once youve narrowed down your choices,
    schedule meetings with all of them to determine
    what you want and to obtain a detailed quote. Ask
    each candidate to create a detailed proposal
    based on your needs, ideas, budget and vision.

  • If you have many ideas, but arent sure what
    direction to take, request a high and low

  • In this type of proposal, the high provides
    the best-case scenario while the low provides
    the worst-case scenario. Basically, its getting
    everything you want versus getting just the bare
    necessities. Most florists offer wedding
    packages, and if there are some budget
    constraints, you could combine low-range and
    high-range packages.
  • If you're looking for flowers for weddings,
    simplify your search and call Heather De Kok.
