Your choice of a wedding florist can determine the theme of your whole wedding. It doesn’t get more personal than your wedding-day flowers. So, start by collecting pictures of flowers and color schemes from bridal magazines and florists’ websites. Magazines, books and websites are a great source of inspiration when it comes to seeing wonderful photographs of flowers and finding listings of local suppliers. You can of course, find your florist listed in our comprehensive Arabia Weddings’ directory.
Once you’ve found a couple of florists arrange to meet with them. A good florist should be able to show you examples of their work, and to suggest initial ideas that work within your budget. It’s also important that you get on well with all your wedding suppliers. Chances are you’re going to have many conversations with them, so it’s crucial that you can talk well through your ideas and feel happy about them being involved in your wedding day.
In order to help a florist understand exactly what you’re looking for, and to create appropriate designs for your wedding, take along plenty of information to inspire them. Photographs of flowers and arrangements you like are ideal, as well as fabric samples from the bridesmaid dresses, for example, and photos of the venue. They will all help build up a picture of your wedding style. You should also arrange for them to visit your wedding venue to see exactly how the arrangements will work.
