FAQs : : what questions to ask a florist


Hello Monday beauties!

It’s been a while but I’m back on the blogging scene! To start fresh I decided to add a new category to the blog called FAQS since I’ve been receiving some questions through email recently. One common question I get is what do I need to look for in a florist. Here are the main questions you need to ask before you sign a contract:

  1. How many other events will the florist be handling on the day of the wedding?
  2. Is the florist experienced in floral design for weddings?
  3. Does the shop have proper cooling devices?
  4. Does the florist have references you can call?
  5. Do they have pictures from previous weddings?
  6. Have they worked at the reception or ceremony site in the past?
  7. What time will the flowers be delivered to the ceremony and reception site(s)?
  8. Do they charge a delivery fee or setup fee?
  9. Does the florist guarantee availability and freshness?
  10. If your first choice is not available, will they be able to substitute with something similar and is their any additional costs to this?
  11. Can the florist provide any additional decorations such as; chuppahs, garlands, symbolic blossoms and wreaths?

Here are some additional tips of what should always be included on the contract:

  • Costs, dates, places, times and the services the florist will perform.
  • A detailed description of every bouquet, arrangement, shapes and sizes, number and types of flowers  and any fillers being used.
  • A clearly defined delivery and payment schedule.
  • Last but not least; the cancellation policy.

I hope this information was useful and would love to hear if anyone had some additional useful tips.

Max xoxo
