Wedding florists and wedding flowers

The relationship between brides, wedding florists and wedding flowers is the key to a stunning display for the big day. I chose to do my own wedding flowers but it is more likely that you are looking for help to find a florist or get cheap flowers delivered.

If you have already read about me, you will know I decided to take on the challenge and do my own wedding flowers. But unless you are truly passionate about flowers, most brides will choose to leave it to the professionals.

Finding someone with the creative flair to turn your dreams into reality whilst making sure you stay within your budget is vital.

A first port of call in choosing your florist should be a personal recommendation from family or friends. Perhaps you have been to a wedding recently where you were really wowed by the flowers. The bride will be delighted by the compliment you will pay her by asking for her recommendation for her florist.

If you are holding your wedding ceremony and reception out of your local area or do not have any personal recommendations from friends, try visiting florists in the area where you will hold your wedding.

Do not expect a detailed consultation if you call on spec without an appointment as discussing your plans for wedding flowers takes time. However, it can be a good idea to call in if you are passing somewhere, perhaps to buy a bunch of flowers for yourself and to see if you get good vibes for the look and feel of the shop.

When I was taking my classes in floral arrangement, I always bought my flowers from a local florist in the town where I was living. She could not have been more helpful and always had tips and advice for me. It did not matter whether I was buying armfuls of blooms to make a big display or a single piece of oasis foam; she always made time to talk. Her shop window was full of inspiration for designs that really appealed to me and I would not have hesitated to choose her as my florist for my wedding day.

Unfortunately for me, I was getting married 300 miles away and in another country so it could not happen. Although I have heard of florists sending flowers abroad for a destination wedding or beach wedding!
