Getting married is a serious task. Some brides do it all themselves while others call in help. There is no wrong way to plan a wedding. But there is a few questions that you have to ask yourself. Trust me. .. I wish I had asked some of these before.
- Do you have any examples of your work?Word of mouth is GOLD. Talking to a bride after going to her wedding/seeing pictures for a referral is always a good thing. If you haven't been to one in a while getting recent examples of their work is key. Social media is a powerful tool. Now-a-days you can follow florist-check out their work- if you like them.. set up a meeting. Also magazines/reputable wedding blogs are extremely helpful.
- Where do you store your flowers?
This is an important question. Flowers need to be kept at a certain temperature to ensure freshness. If you ask this question and your florist looks at you lost.. move on.
- When do you make your flowers (bouquets..etc)?
Here is a good example. Say you get married on Sunday. The florist tells you that the flowers will be made on Thursday. You don't want your flowers to be made so early in advance. They will probably wilt easy and become fragile.
- Will you come to the venue and set up the flowers?
This is a good question to ask. There usually is an extra fee to for the florist to come and set up. Depending on you wedding coordinator, they MAY do it for you (no fee).
- Can you provide me a sample piece before we book?
This might not be a question that every bride might ask but it's always good to ask. 90% of the time a fee is associated. I wish I did this so we could have squeaked the final look before the big day.
These are just five of the questions that a bride may ask.
Do you think I missed an important question?
