There’s so much to do and so little time!  If you’re worried about your florist and what you should be doing to make sure that you have that all handled, consider this your go-to guide on all of the details that you need to know.

Tips for hiring your florist

            Here are some questions to think about when you’re looking at the timing portion of hiring your florist.

  • Where are flowers on your priority list?: Some people value flowers more than others. If you are someone who is looking at the idea of going simple, you’ll be okay with a smaller budget and priority.  If you want something complicated and extravagant, then more time and more money. Don’t be afraid to be honest here, either. 
  • How far along are you with your flower plan?: Some brides-to-be know exactly what they want, and others have no idea. The further along you are, the less time you’ll need to work with your professional before the wedding itself.  If you need a lot of help, book well in advance. 
  • Do you have suggestions for your bouquet?: If you know what you don’t want, or do want, it can help save time and effort on your florist’s behalf. This, again, means less time.  From inspiration ideas on Pinterest, to other friends’ recommendations, it all factors in.

Pick what’s right for you

            As you answer these, you’ll get a feel for both how much effort you need to put into your flower choice, and what different factors you should think of when you are looking at the idea of timing.  Those who need more guidance will want to book earlier than those who don’t.  That being said, there’s no right or wrong time.  Other than, say, inside 2 weeks of your wedding!

A florist is an important professional for your special day, so make sure that you factor them into your planning and budgeting so that everyone can get along!
