There's So Much to Consider When Choosing Your Wedding Suppliers, Where Do You Begin? With So Many Options It Can Be Overwhelming.
I had the absolute pleasure of chatting to the wonderful Fran from Limewood Flowers, we were discussing lots of different things to do with weddings but naturally as Fran's a florist the topic turned to "How to choose your Wedding Florist" and I thought this would be an ideal feature for all you wonderful brides and grooms out there & hopefully a big help. Here's what Fran had to say.
How to choose your wedding florist: five tips most of the couples I talk to ask ‘how does it work then? I imagine that is the kind of feeling you have about wedding planning in general so here are five tips from me on choosing your florist.
Floristry is just like any other creative process; everyone has their own style and things that they love doing. So have a look at the wedding florists near you and see what kind of style you like. Is it formal, boho, scattered with diamanté, natural or something else? When you find someone who’s work you love get in touch with them.
We all know that most 2020 weddings were postponed to 2021 or even 2022. Many wedding suppliers are all ready fully booked for 2021 so don’t delay when you find a florist you like. Contact them, check availability for your date and book a consultation.
Ok so you are not likely to become best friends with your wedding florist but you will be talking to them in the lead up to your wedding and they will be there on the day. You want this to be a nice experience, so when you chat to them do you feel they get you; is this someone you can trust with the most expensive flowers of your life?
This one is particularly important to me so it is of course something I would put in as a tip. What are your principles? Do you care about the environment and want your bouquets locally grown and wrapped in recyclable paper? Or are you vegan? So, silk ribbons need to be swapped out for bamboo ones (equally beautiful, don’t worry). Only one more tip to go from me. This last one is not about choosing your wedding florist but a tip for working with them.
I love Pinterest as much as the next person however if you ask me to make exactly this bouquet from this picture, I can only quote you for what you have asked for and that is more than likely going to be crazy expensive. Tell your florist what you like about a picture and ask them what they would create for you and only you. At the end of the day, price is important. If the quote is over your budget ask your florist the best way to bring it down. Often it is about the style of the arrangements and how they are created rather than flower costs. Small changes in design can make huge differences to budget. If you are still confused, just get in touch and I’ll do my best to help and point you in the direction of the best florist for you.
