How To Find Your Wedding Florist |

Marriages unite the lives of two loving people so that they can share their future with each other. Various elements help make weddings both memorable and magical.

Some weddings adhere to themes designed to mark the spirits and highlight the personality of the couples. Floral arrangements are key elements of wedding themes because they help set the mood at both the ceremony and the reception.

Flowers can easily help couples achieve their desired mood, whether it’s rustic, romantic, modern, or even whimsical. Skilled florists can use a variety of flowers and foliage, as well as dramatic displays to help create the couple’s wedding day vision. According to an internal study by wedding planning and advice resource The Knot, which surveyed more than 27,000 couples who got married in 2019, the average cost of wedding flowers was $2,000 in 2019. However, the Cost of floral arrangements can vary depending on the extent of the arrangements and the choice of flowers, including whether or not they are in season.

It’s essential that couples spend time researching potential florists to find one that will produce the desired vision at a price that fits their budget. These guidelines can make the process smoother.

• Establish your theme early on. Floral arrangements will complement and enhance other elements of the wedding, including the color palette and wedding theme. If your wedding theme is tied to a specific season, you’ll work with the florist to find flowers and other pieces that coordinate. For example, winter weddings with white, ice blue and silver color combinations can be coordinated with white ranunculus flowers, dahlias, dusty foliage and viburnum berries.

• Bring samples and photographs to consultations. It’s easier to explain color palettes to a florist with examples in hand. Show the florist the types of arrangements you prefer and have actual fabric swatches of bridesmaid dresses or groomsman vests so colors can be complemented.

• Create a list of desired items. Florists may sell a la carte items or have packages of common floral pieces for wedding celebrations. Types of flower arrangements include bridal bouquet, bridesmaids bouquets, bridesmaid bouquet, mothers/grandmothers corsages, groomsmen and fathers/grandfathers boutonnieres, bridesmaid headpiece honour, sprinkle petals, centerpieces, altar arrangements, pew or chair decorations, and cake toppers.

• Go easy on the aroma. Tread lightly when selecting flowers that have strong aromas. They may be beautiful, but many people are sensitive to smells. Allergies can also be exacerbated by flowers with strong aromas. Discuss the options with the florist before proceeding.

• Explain your budget. Research the average cost of floral arrangements and let the florist know what you can afford. This can help the florist narrow down options or make substitutions that fit your theme and budget.

Couples can take certain steps when choosing floral arrangements for their weddings. Cost should not be the only deciding factor, although it is important.
