8 Key Questions You Need to Ask Your Florist Before Your Wedding

Flowers add the most beautiful finishing touch to any wedding, and there’s nothing quite like holding your bouquet as you walk down the aisle!

It’s no wonder choosing the right florist is one of the most important decisions you will make. 

Before you sign any contracts though, there are a few important questions you should be asking your florist:

  1. How would you describe your style? Just like wedding photographers have a style, florists do too. Where some florists create more formal arrangements, others prefer natural textures and unique blooms. 
  2. Where can I see examples of your work? If you haven’t seen too many examples of a potential florist’s work, ask to see more. Any professional florist will have a portfolio they can show you. 
  3. How many brides do you assist in one day? To avoid rushing and potential issues, you might prefer your florist to only assist you on your wedding day. A florist working on more than one wedding isn’t a dealbreaker though. If this is the case, ask them about their schedule so that you know exactly what to expect. 
  4. Are you available on my wedding day? Before you set your heart on a particular florist, make sure they are actually available on your wedding day. If not, ask them for recommendations.
  5. Have you worked at my venue before? Again, it’s not a dealbreaker if your florist hasn’t worked at your venue before, but if they have, they may already have some ideas that you can use. You could also ask to see their photos from your venue. 
  6. Is there a minimum spend? While not all florists have a minimum spend, some of the more popular professionals do. Ask about a minimum spend before finalizing your booking to ensure it fits in with your budget. 
  7. What flowers are in season around my wedding day? To help you narrow down your floral choices, get a professional opinion on which blooms will be in season at the time of your wedding. 
  8. Which flowers fit in with my budget? Again, before you get your hopes up about specific arrangements, rather share your budget with your florist from the beginning. This way, you only need to consider the flowers that meet your budgetary requirements.

Now that you have a better idea of the most important information you need, you can start approaching potential florists about your big day!
