Here’s what she wants brides to know when it comes to having a wonderful experience with a florist:
Consider Your on Sense of Style:
Do you follow trends in your everyday life? If so, then great! If not, you could actually date your wedding by jumping on Pinterest. The images aren’t always current, and you might be looking at arrangements trending from years ago.
Fall in Love With A Concept
Be flexible with specifics, but fall in love with a concept! Be sure you entrust a professional who clearly understands your vision and is capable of executing it. Communication is critical to ensure that your expectations aren’t just met BUT EXCEEDED on your wedding day.
Allow Your Florist to Educate You
About what’s in season and how that effects the quality and the expense of a particular flower. Be open to alternatives if certain flowers are not in season!
If You’re a DIY Bride…
Remember that floral design is a time-consuming process and flowers are delicate and perishable. Post-harvest care and handling of flowers is so important for ensuring that they remain beautiful throughout the wedding day.
