Be it your wedding, your bestie's marriage or a wedding in the family, you just want everything to be perfect. Right from food to decorations, you simply want everything to be 'the best'.
While you are busy planning for things like wardrobe, footwear, jewellery, guest list, venue, etc., you might forget one significant thing - the right wedding florist.
There are certain things that you need to get clarity on before finalising a florist. Let's just have a look at what all you need to keep in mind!
Do you want a simple décor or an elaborate flower decoration at the wedding venue? Do you have something in mind or do you want to leave the entire decoration to the florist’s discretion? You need to have answers for all these questions beforehand.
Before you make up your mind, browse and search for brilliant ideas related to wedding decoration. You can get a lot of options concerning patterns, colour schemes, arrangements and so much more, before you finally choose the one that suits you.
You cannot just finalise and book the first florist you meet. Find out if he is well-known or not. Get a hold of some pictures and reviews of his previous works. Don't you want the best?
You might feel that all florists do the same thing, and there is no need to meet one after the other. But there is something known as experience and a knack for the job. The florist that has both these qualities will deliver what you actually want. So, meet a few people and consider it as an investment for an outstanding result.
Is he that equipped and experienced to give you a grand stage and magnificent entry that you have always thought of? Or, is he not-so-big a vendor and too expensive to be booked for the little elegant designing that is required? Get answers for all these questions.
It’s because it will always be very easy to ask him to come to his office in order to clear your doubts. You can also drop him a message to check the arrangements before the event starts.
It is very significant to decide on a budget and stick to it. There are people who charge very less and some who charge a lot. Depending on what kind of arrangement you want, chalk down all the money related details on paper so as to avoid any confusion later.
Of the flowers, we mean! You don’t want to end up with white roses, while you actually wanted white lilies just because you told the florist- 'I want the white flowers'. Be clear about the names of different flowers.
The same vendor might have done a great job at one wedding, and committed a disaster at the other. It’s very significant to know his overall reputation, which can help you take a wise decision. If there are more negative reviews than positive ones, you need to start your search again!
Keep it simple, keep it superb, and keep it stunning. There is a certain kind of beauty and class in simplicity. It is vital to choose quality over quantity, where 'grand' can be made into 'classy' and chic into ‘elegant’.
If he has two to three weddings to cover in a day, will he be able to do justice to all of them? Is he that equipped? Does he have enough labour, transportation, and the right flower distributors? Get all these facts right before you make the final call!
What if it suddenly starts to rain? What if there is a hail storm? Can he still reach the venue on time, and re-do the same? Can he shift the decorations indoor until the rain stops, and set it beautifully later on?
So, only after being sure of the above points, you should finalise your florist! After all, the wedding venue, its decorations, and how lovely the couple looks is what all guests want to see at a wedding. So, make yours the best!
