The Wedding Florist

FAQ


Q.1 How do I decide on my flowers?

Normally the venue will be a factor in deciding on a theme- natural, old worldly, modern chic, rustic etc. Once the colours of the bride and bridesmaids dresses have been decided it’s up to your Florist to suggest designs and colours that coordinate with your overall theme.

Q.2 How long before my wedding should I order my flowers?

Most brides like to make a booking as soon as they have the dress, often a year in advance. You can make an appointment with us, reserve your date, pay a deposit, pay an deposit and be confident that your date is secure for you. We will then contact you 8 weeks before the wedding date and go through all details again and make any changes if necessary.

Q.3 What should I expect during a consultation?

Lots of questions! For instance, how do you envision your wedding? Romantic, elegant, simple, or modern? What are your favourite flowers? Least favourites? An initial consultation can take approximately 1 hour. It is extremely helpful to bring along swatches of the dresses and photos of your venues, as well as any magazine clippings of flowers that have caught your eye. These items make for a more productive consultation

Q.4 Can I bring a picture of a bouquet I like with me?

Yes, it’s often a help to visualise the brides ideas, we can reproduce all designs, but also and more importantly we can incorporate your ideas and themes and make it more individual.

Q.5 How much should I expect to pay for my flowers?

It’s a very important to have a budget. Let us know how much it is at our first meeting. We are more than aware of the current climate and we have designed 3 fantastic packages for you. Whatever your budget is we can design wonderful bouquets and arrangements with the best quality flowers available.
