Top 5 Most Important Questions To Ask Your Wedding Florist

So many questions, but what should I ask?

1. Experience 

How long has the wedding florist been in business? 

A florist with 10+ years of experience can make your DREAM wedding come to life and provide you practical advice along the way. A skilled florist can create unique designs with beautiful flowers. 

2. Wedding Date 

Is the wedding florist available on the date of your wedding or the date you need to pick up flowers. 

Yes? Great, let's talk design styles. 

3. Floral Budget 

Is the wedding florist willing to work within your budget? 

A good florist will suggest affordable florals. Some have the misconception that inexpensive flowers cost less, but low-priced flowers often require more labor. Most stems of low-cost flowers are thin and the heads are small so you need more flowers to create a beautiful full arrangement. A good florist will also offer alternatives to combine with your flowers to help stay within your floral budget. Do not be afraid to nicely ask your florist to work within your budget. Most florists are kind enough to help you, but that would more creative freedom for the florist. 

4. Floral Designs

What designs does the wedding florist provide? 

A wedding florist will customize your wedding with consideration to your personal style, photography angle, and wedding venue (celling hight, openness of space, table setting, etc.). 

5. Payment 

How much is required for the retainer? 

Depending on the wedding florist, some florists ask for a retainer starting at $200. Some florists require a retainer half the cost of your wedding flower budget. 

When does the florist need the final payment? 

Again, the final payment depends on the florist. Most florists require the final payment two months prior to the wedding to adjust any order or supply replacements.
