Flowers for weddings – how to pick your florist

Great floral design can really make your wedding. As well as having the blooms to decorate your wedding venue, you can also complement your chosen bridal gown and the ensembles worn by your groom, bridesmaids and groomsmen. Here at Gosfield Hall, we understand the importance of making your wedding day extra special. Flowers are an integral part of your wedding day look and feel, providing the perfect backdrop for you to say your vows in front of all the people you love.

Choosing florist

Selecting the right flowers for your wedding day matters. Choosing the perfect florist that will make your wedding day dreams come true however is equally, if not more, important. Every year we witness countless wedding flower trends, and 2018 is no different. One aspect of floral arrangements that should endure, regardless of the new flower types, colours and styles, is a good florist. In this blog post, we share our top tips for picking your wedding florist.

Have a clear idea of what you want

Knowing what you want from your floral arrangements isn’t easy. There’s tons of inspiration out there, and countless designs that you can choose from to suit your wider wedding style and venue. Whilst your chosen florist will help you bring your vision to life, having an idea about what you want from your wedding day flowers is recommended. Having a vision in mind of your wedding scene will not only help you plan other parts of your big day to perfection, it will help you find the right florist for the job. Determining your floral needs is advised when finding the right supplier for you, your wedding requirements and your budget. As The Knot puts it:

“Do you want someone who’ll not only make your arrangements but also help design the look of your reception tables and ceremony aisle? A florist designer is probably more your speed. Already have a planner or an eye for design? Then a regular florist will likely do the trick. Figure out which is the best fit—this will allow you to narrow your search and help determine your budget.”

Do lots (and lots) of research

As with choosing any wedding supplier, finding a florist that you love all comes down to research. The net offers an easy and convenient way to connect with florists that are local to you or your chosen wedding venue. Go beyond the images shown on their website however, and delve deeper into their experience and expertise. Online reviews from couples who have already used the florist will provide a vital and honest insight into their service.
