When should you select your flowers?
After apparel choices have been made so you know colors and amount of formality.
After you’ve selected the ceremony and reception sites so
you know color scheme, size of rooms, number of tables and pews.
Yet, you’ll need to allow enough time. Many florists book dates nearly a year in
advance for spring and summer weddings! Be prepared to place a deposit to
guarantee your wedding date. But first, be sure you choose the right florist.
These questions will help get you started: Which flowers will be in season on my
wedding day? Do you have a list for guidelines of who should get flowers? Do you
have photos of arrangements you’ve made for other weddings? Are you familiar
with my wedding site? Are you willing to experiment with me for the pieces I
desire? Are you willing to work within my budget? How do shapes and flowers vary
in price? If my requests are unavailable, will you make substitutions? Will this
affect the price? What are your prices for a throw-away bouquet?
Will you mark each corsage and
boutonniere to help avoid confusion?
(i.e. grandmother, organist, groom, usher, etc.) How will you guarantee the
flowers look their best for my wedding? Do you charge to deliver flowers to the
church? At what time will you deliver the flowers? Does your delivery charge
include altar set up or pinning of corsages and boutonnieres? Will you, or one
of your staff people be available for last minute concerns on my wedding day?
Do you rent candelabras, kneeling benches, aisle runners, etc? When must rented
items be returned?
What is your payment policy? Do you preserve bouquets?
