Yes, more decisions regarding your big day! Don’t put your floral decisions on the back burner (they’re important too). Flower arrangements can get a bit pricey so make sure to keep your budget in mind.
Many couples typically allot three percent of their total wedding budget for their flowers and décor, but do what works best for you. Set an amount that you feel comfortable with. Floral designers will work within your budget and suggest smart ways to save.
When interviewing potential floral designers be prepared with your visions. Bring an idea book of what you have in mind for your wedding. Consider your style, color scheme, etc. At this time you'll discuss your budget, number of guests who will be attending, bridesmaids, groomsmen, and any family members who will need flowers.
Don’t forget to ask any questions you may have. Inquiring will only help you get to know that floral designer better and increase or decrease your confidence in their business. Leave room for flexibility to make adjustments. BridalGuide.com raises this point: do you really need an arrangement for the head table or can you use the bridesmaid bouquets as decor? This would be a great cost effective alternative.
Don’t forget the timing of your wedding. Depending on the time of the year it pays to use flowers that are currently in season!
Don’t stress during the planning process. Take in each moment and stop to smell the roses!
