Steps to Finding Your Florist

Flowers truly the heart of your celebration and can create vibrations you go for: romantic, modern, whimsical, the rustic-the list goes on and on. To find a florist to create a vision of your wedding day, be sure to ask them these questions.

Build Your Flower Style

Some florists specialize in high, lush, ornate centerpieces, while others are better in a modern, minimalist setting. Looking for photos of bouquets and centerpieces you want to figure out your style. You can look for Byron Bay wedding florist at Wilderness Flowers.

And familiarize yourself with some of the terms of the most common flower, so you'll be able to talk shop with your flowers.

Determine your Floral needs

Do you want someone who will not only make your settings but also to help design the look of your reception tables and ceremonial hall? A designer florists may be more your speed. Already have a planner or an eye for design?

Then the regular florist will probably do the trick. Figure out the best fit-this will allow you to narrow down your search and help determine your budget.

Create a Budget for Your Floral

The decor and flowers should amount to about 10 percent of the overall budget. If you love flowers and want a large installation, or dead-set on a peony in November, plans to bump this number.

And account for extras such as setup and breakdown of costs, taxes and tips. It's important you have a number in mind when you start meeting with the florist.
