Choosing The Right Florist For You
In starting your search for a florist thats right for you, first ask for recommendations from friends family or other. A good practice is to get a few names of previous floral services that have worked wedding celebrations at the reception hall or hotel that you intend on having your event. When you are equipped with names and numbers you are ready to begin some interviews. It is very important to book appointments with the service providers ahead of time.
|At your first meeting with the service provider, you should not be expected to sign any contracts and should state it clearly that you are looking for someone with whom you are able to work with. Here are some criteria to use in your search for the right florist:|
Creativity and compatibility:
Look for a florist that shows willingness to embrace your ideas, offer supportive advice and suggestions, shows you displayed or pictorial examples of their work and is fully aware of you budgetary parameters and is comfortable working within these limits.
This is your big day, your florist will need to be experienced in the business of wedding floral décor in order to satisfy yours and your companys visual pleasure. The florist should be capable of managing all the details, including the timing and delivery of arrangements you require.
Be sure to examine the florists portfolio or album containing their photographs or illustrations of previous works in weddings.
Flexibility and range of options:
What type of service do you require? It is important to be very clear with the type of service deliverables you expect from your florist. Bringing along a floral checklist with a range of items will prove helpful. Your florist should be able to work with you in meeting your budget or making suggestions and alternatives should it be over the amount you can afford.
If you find that you are over budget after selecting your choices, simply determine what the most important expenditure is: is it the reception centerpiece, the bridal bouquet or are there other areas that could be re-considered? The magic of flowers is that there is t beauty, magic, charm and elegance in the simplest of petal and floral formed arrangement provided it is done with love and care.
