And the most important detail to be incorporated when crafting your autumn wedding bouquet is the overall blending of all the flowers and flower arrangements to your bridal bouquet. Even if you do have a wedding planner and a florist, you should check the wedding preparations, it's your wedding after all.
Although the florist is needed for these steps, first you should understand how to find the right one! Here are some tips in finding your perfect florist.
First of all, see who is out there. Depending upon where you live you could have hundreds to choose from or only a few. Call around and find out if they do weddings, how much time before the wedding they require to be hired, and if they are available on your wedding day.
Once you have found a few to several to choose from, it is time to narrow down your choices.
First you want to determine your own floral style and then see if it is a good match. You will need the florist for bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, and floral centerpieces and other decorations at the ceremony and the reception site. What each couple desires and requires can be vastly different. You want a florist who can make your vision come to life. For instance, if you want to have an ultra modern affair you might want to pass on a more traditional florist.
Once you have narrowed your choices again to who you think you could work with to create the perfect wedding bouquets and centerpieces, you want to see what they have already done. Ask if they have a wedding portfolio. Check out any photos or videos of their work that you can. Find out if they have worked at the ceremony site or reception site before. If they have, ask if they have any suggestions or areas that they cannot provided flowers for.
Find out what your responsibilities are versus theirs. For instance, do they deliver the flowers, if so to the ceremony and reception or is it up to you to transfer from one site to another? Do they work directly with the ceremony and reception management or is that up to you? Do they just deliver or do they setup as well? Do they provide any other services like rentals of fabric for draping, candle holders or any other wedding decorations?
Although the florist is important in choosing your fall wedding bouquets (and all your flower needs), I hope you can see how important choosing the right one is!
