Choosing a Florist


The first step in choosing a florist is to make an appointment to discuss ideas and to look at the florist’s work. The experienced florist usually has limitless ideas and should be able to work within any couple’s budget.

A first consultation with a florist will often last one to two hours, so it is important to call ahead for an appointment and to allow plenty of time.

Since the style of the gown and formality of the wedding will play an important role in choosing coordinating
flowers and designs, many florists ask for
fabric swatches and photographs of the bridal gown and bridesmaids’ dresses.

Come with open minds, for the florist will surely have a bountiful bouquet of fresh ideas guaranteed to make any wedding unique.
