Recently I have been in contact with many 2013 brides who are in the process of planning and meeting with potential caterers, photographers, florists and so on. So, I thought I would take some time to give you brides out there a little insight in planning your meeting with your wedding florwedding
The first appointment is the “getting to know you” and finding out “where you are.” At this point in time you should have booked your wedding venue, as this sets the tone for the wedding and let’s you know what you may or may not need based on the surroundings and what the venue may provide. You should also have a good idea of the type of flowers you like, the color scheme, who you want to wear or carry flowers and most importantly your style. Come prepared with pictures, magazine cut-outs, etc. of pictures you love… and those you hate. This is also a time where we will explore your budget. We will brainstorm and talk about different possibilities. Categories to consider for your wedding flowers are personal, ceremony and reception flowers.
Once a proposal has been written and approved a deposit is required to save the date. Between now and the wedding day changes can and will occur, so keep your florist up to date. About one month prior to the wedding we will discuss any further changes and confirm delivery times.
Finally, about 10 days prior to tying the knot we will tie up any loose ends and confirm the number of centerpieces, ask any last minute questions and arrange final payment.
Wedding flowers can vary greatly in cost and my job is to provide you with creative designs at a price you can afford.
