Before you are even able to go meet with potential florists, there are a few things you will have to think about. 

First things first, are flowers a priority? What’s your budget? What’s your style? What’s your vision for your wedding day?

These are some of the very first questions that you will have to ponder in order to move forward.

Another great influence on your florals will be your venue! 

If you have a gorgeous outdoor venue, you may want something that can withstand the weather and compliment the environment.

Not all florists are the same, and you want to find the best fit for not only your wedding day, but your personality!

Anyone could tell you what you want to hear, all day long. But the proof is in the product!

Let your florist show you either their work or photographs of their creations!

When working on your floral budget, consider a few things…

Some flowers that are “must haves” may be out of season, however, many flowers have fraternal twins!

Many flowers have a meaning, just as red roses symbolize love!

Fun parts of your floral department are that you can totally recycle them!

From ceremony to reception, you can take florals from the altar to the bar! Another thing to remember is to keep your guests in mind! You don’t want to have such a grand centerpiece that your guests are having to dodge around to see what is going on.
