3 Key Benefits of Hiring A Wedding Florist

Unfortunately, 'do it yourself' has become a frequently repeated slogan for many brides, but should you try to get creative with your wedding flowers? While decor is easier to DIY, flowers are on a whole other level. 

Here are three key benefits of hiring a wedding florist:

1. Knowledge and Experience 

Florists spend countless hours acquiring new skills and experiences. Similar to the fashion industry, new techniques, varieties, and products frequently appear, and florists are expected to stay up-to-date with the trends. The beautiful cascading bridal bouquet in the picture above was made with a decades worth of knowledge and experience. 

2. Ordering and Care 

Here is a true story, but the names are changed for privacy reasons. 

Bride Emma decides that instead of paying a florist, she will buy the flowers herself. She buys calla lilies and peonies (which costs more than she thought) and sets them aside in her dark and cool basement. Then, Emma spends hours researching on how to care for her flowers. When her wedding day comes, the flowers are wilting. As the hours tick by, the flowers slowly start to brown. But why?! She did everything right! Emma quickly calls Florist Mia to ask for flowers as a last-ditch effort. Florist Mia tells Bride Emma that she cannot give her flowers on such short notice, and Bride Emma is utterly devastated. 

Ordering and caring for flowers is difficult. It requires experience (something Bride Emma did not have). A florist really knows how to care for flowers because he or she has done it time and time again. Skip the stress and hassle, and hire a florist to order and care for your wedding flowers. 

3. Delivery, Setup, and Breakdown 

Hear us out. Your family and friends want to have fun on your wedding day. Hire a florist to deliver, setup, and breakdown on your wedding day. 

Unfamiliar and curvy roads can be hard to navigate, especially with delicate flowers. You do not want a wedding flower nightmare.

Flower setup can take hours since flowers and decor are tedious to arrange. Add a flight of stairs into the mix, and setup time can double.

After the wedding, who is willing to help cleanup? Very few people because your family and friends are tired. Why not just hire a florist to take care of the packing, folding, and storing of any flowers or decor after the wedding.
