Flowers are amongst one of the most important items you need to prepare for your wedding beforehand. You can only accomplish that with the help of a good florist, and you need to be on the lookout for one: not every person out there may have the skills (or even the required flowers) to integrate floral decorations into your wedding theme.
As with other wedding services, you may wish to follow a few tips when choosing your personal florist. Asking questions is of the utmost importance: this is not like when you buy a bouquet online: going to the florist yourself lets you order something specially tailored for you, so don’t hesitate to express your own ideas.
Choosing a Style
Flowers are available in different sizes and shapes: some have very tall stalks, others may bloom in large clusters while others may excel at being part of basic designs. Choose a single style which you think fits the theme of the wedding, or go for a mix of styles if you like creativity.
Meet with the Florist
Once you have a basic idea of your requirements, it is time to meet with the florist in person. You will understand that no matter how much you talk over the phone; it just doesn’t let you convey your thoughts as meeting the florist in person. When scheduling appointments, remember that florists may have a busy schedule (they can be involved in anything from managing an sympathy flower stand HK to other weddings), so try to contact him or her as soon as you can.
Bring Some Reference Pictures
Having trouble telling your florist about your actual requirements? After all, not everybody is good at speaking and communicating, and that is why you should look for other methods to make the florist understand. Taking a few reference pictures with you can be useful if the florist doesn’t seem to understand your exact needs.
If you can get a few references of good florists from friends and relatives, it may be worth your time checking them out first. If you are lucky, you won’t even have to search for other florists on your own: remember that people in the floral business rely on word of mouth a lot more than you would expect them to.
Don’t Forget About Your Budget
Going all out with your decorations may make your wedding look quite fancy, but it isn’t such a good idea to blow the entirery of the available budget on flowers alone. There a lot of other things you need to take care, and you need to remember to allocate your budget accordingly to each area.
