What should I take to a wedding flower consultation?
Our professional florist will guide you through all the requirements and information they need during your consultation, this will be a time when you'll be able to start discussing plans you have made for your wedding and also ideas you have regarding your wedding flowers.
Start taking a look at images in weddings magazines, and marking the ones you like, or start a Pinterest board with things that catch your eye. This is very useful information to your florist - don't feel that you need to choose specific flowers or even designs, but a collection of what you like will help your florist make suggestions and create wedding flowers that are tailored and perfect for you.
It may be that you are going to your florist with an open mind, however having some idea of the direction you wish the wedding decorations to take may be useful. If you haven't already done so, do take a look at 'Planning your wedding flowers' and also How to choose a theme for wedding flowers.
What the florist will most likely ask?
Below we have listed a number of questions that might be asked at some point in your wedding planning (these will not all be asked at the first consultation) and aren't meant to bamboozle you. They will help you consider how best to make the process more straightforward for yourself and your florist.
For example if you can take along images of bride, bridesmaids and groomsman's outfits, along with sample of the fabrics - this helps enormously. It is a good idea, when meeting your wedding reception coordinator to ask for extra business cards.
We hope that by considering these questions you can plan finer detail and answers. You will be one step ahead with all your wedding flower planning.
