Wedding Flowers Consultation: What to bring

Once you are engaged, it can be easy to jump into planning all of your wedding details right away. The pace at which everyone plans is personal and dependent on many factors. However, there is a rhyme and reason to the order and timeline in which you meet with your vendors that will help you be most efficient and successful in your endeavors. 

Your flowers will play an important role in setting the tone for your wedding day. They’ll tie together the emotions you wish to evoke for your family and friends. They will enhance the color palette that speaks to your love story. Therefore, you’ll want to meet with and decide on a florist early in the planning process. Typically, shortly after you’ve booked your venue(s) and have a date locked in. We recommend 18 months to a year out. Once you have that, there are a few other items on your checklist. These items will help you have a successful wedding flowers consultation with your potential florist.

What you MUST have:

A firm wedding date
Signed contracts with your venue(s)
Approximation of guest count
1-3 words that describe your wedding feel
Color inspiration
List of floral allergies if you have any (ie: lilies, eucalyptus, etc)
An idea of your flower/decor budget
Round or rectangle tables, or a mix? 

Great to Haves:

A photo of your dress- preferably with you wearing it (if you have it already).
Swatch of your bridesmaids dress(es)
Bridal party count (roughly)
Inspiration photos
Names and contact info of pertinent booked vendors
Ceremony and reception times

We’ll be super impressed if you have:

Table layout (best guess)
Photos of the venue 
Photos of the church if you’re getting married in one
Venue/Church rules 

Our goal is always to make the floral consultation process as easy and enjoyable as possible. Wedding flowers can feel overwhelming. But with some basic information about your wedding day, we can break down your needs, and design something beautiful. If you need more evidence of that, just check out what our previous clients have to say!
