The National Wedding Show exhibitors Passion for Flowers are here to give you top tips when choosing your wedding florist and answer some floral FAQ’s!
TNWS: What should brides look for when choosing their wedding florists?
Passion for Flowers: Choose a wedding florist who is creative and passionate about her work, whose designs inspire you & clearly fit with your wedding style.Look for a florist whose style you love, ideally who has worked at your venue before or is prepared to visit beforehand.
If you are hoping to include additional props for wedding styling it is always worth checking with your florist before getting another company involved. Many florists have an array of props available for hire and will often style them for you at the wedding set up.Go with the florist who inspires you and that you like the best!
TNWS: Before meeting wedding florist, what kind of prep should be done to get the most out of the intial meeting?
Passion for Flowers: Look for inspiration in magazines, blogs & on Pinterest so you can discuss ideas with your florist. Many florists now have Pinterest accounts, Facebook pages & blogs showing their inspiration and recent work.Be sure to take any magazine tears and ideas with you to your first consultation. A good florist will be able to help you through your maze of ideas to create a look you will love.
TNWS: What’s the average amount to spend on wedding flowers?
Passion for Flowers: We usually suggest about 20%. Of course it is always important to realise that the larger your wedding the more you will need to budget, the more bridesmaids and tables you have the more bouquets and centrepieces you will need, something that doesn’t always occur to our couples at first.
If you are looking for a WOW factor flower designs and hanging installations then this will have an impact of your budget.
