1) Choose your florist wisely and trust them
While it is important to know your own style, it is even more important to find a florist who understands that style as well. How do you pick a florist? My main suggestion is to look at their published work. Now more than ever, it is easy to find bouquets they have crafted on social media from platforms like Facebook and Instagram. If you are drawn to their bouquets book a consultation!
2) Choose your wedding theme before your flowers
Knowing your own style is a key element to understand the flowers you will want. Choosing a flower shop that fits your style is essential. I love unique flowers with a touch of vintage elegance. This is why Weeds Floral Shop was a perfect fit for me. When you meet your florist for a consultation, remember to bring a picture of your dress, the wedding location, your style for hair and makeup, and inspirational pictures of floral arrangements you are drawn to.
3) Questions to ask during the consultation
The first thing is understand that flowers are expensive. Openly discuss your budget and be realistic on what that budget will get you. Be open to the suggestions of your florist. If you have chosen the right florist, they will be able to work with you and help you build the perfect bouquet.
Also understand what flowers are in season on your wedding day. Some flowers just aren’t available at certain times of the year (or are very expensive) take this into consideration when choosing which flowers you would like to use in your bouquet.
Color is significant. There are so many different shades of whites, ivories and creams. Your florist can recommend the right type of flowers that will compliment with the exact color of your dress. If you have a specific color for your bridesmaids dresses, bring a sample during your consultation.
I loved every second of my consultation. It truly reflected me. It was laid back but I also came prepared with pictures of the wedding style. Hollie the owner of Weeds Floral Shop asked for my feedback on which blooms I liked best, but ultimately I trusted her to put together the perfect arrangement for my special day. Here are some out take pictures of our consultation. I hope you enjoy them.
Thank you so much for reading! I can’t wait to share with you the final bouquet. It is going to be absolutely stunning and a complete reflection of me.
