Flowers play a big role in the overall wedding experience. At about six to eight months prior to the wedding, once you've determined the reception site, wedding party's attire and floral budget, you can begin scheduling consultations with florists. Be sure you cover the following questions during each visit.
Also, some florists offer a complimentary toss bouquet or bride bouquet – be sure to ask!
A lot of other questions will come to mind as you meet with various florists. Ask everything you need to make sure that you come away with a clear understanding of what that florist can do to make your special day even more special.
Once you’ve selected your florist, you will want to schedule a trial run about two to three months prior to the wedding and will then want to finalize your flower choices about six weeks prior, before the florist places the final floral order.
