Avoiding Floral Disappointment On Your Wedding Day

Most brides have fond memories of their wedding day decor. But if there is one area that seems prone to problems, it's floral arrangement. The good news is that you can do a lot to avoid disappointment with your flowers by asking then right questions when interviewing for a florist.

Are you a full-time florist?

Do you paint/airbrush flowers to fit a color scheme? (And let them know if you don't want this done!)

Have you handled events of this size before?

What time do you arrive to set-up your equipment?

How many weddings do you do per year?

Do you have a portfolio and a list of referrals?

What style do you specialize in? Romantic? Traditional? Modern?

How far in advance will you make my centerpieces and bouquets?

Do you require a deposit?

Do you provide a written contract?

What are some other questions that are important to ask? Let us know! :)

I think getting referrals is the best way to find out if a florist is really going to do a good job or not.

Into the spring, flowers bloom, you can choose Quinceanera Gowns of the wedding a lot, the green is the most commonly used, choose Bridesmaid Dress as the background jumping, and then decorated with flowers as the main theme of theEvening Dresses while the bride’s makeup also feminine-based in the choice of cheap wedding dresses can also be tender and beautiful colors and lively attention.
