How do you find the right florist to provide your wedding flowers, what questions should you ask them, and when should you sign a contract with a florist?
Ask them if they are available to do your wedding on your chosen date.
Ask whether they are exclusive to you on the wedding day.
They should be able to provide a portfolio featuring a large selection of different styled bouquets and flower arrangements.
Ask the florist what provisions they make in order to keep the flowers fresh.
Ask them what back-up plan do they have available if the flowers do not arrive on time for the wedding.
Ask if they can provide spare buttonholes for people on the day in case your guests lose any.
When you ask to a florist for a quote make sure they include all the hidden fees such as their transport costs, ribbons, wire, their service and VAT, that way you shouldn’t have any surprises.
How much deposit will you have to pay to secure their services on the day, and when will you have to pay the final balance.
If you want to preserve your flowers after the wedding, ask the florist if they offer an aftercare service.
