“Love is the flower you’ve got to let grow.” – John Lennon
When it comes to weddings, flowers are a girl’s best friends. We know a lot of brides have an extensive Pinterest board collection with the flower combinations and colours they have in mind for their big day ready to show to their florist to make it happen. Others go with screenshots of related Instagram posts or even pictures from real weddings they have been and liked the result. There are, however, a few things to keep in mind in order to have a fruitful relationship with your florist and make your vision true on the big day. Here is our pro advice for a blooming collaboration with your florist!
1.Go with the season
A rule of thumb all florists would like you to abide by is: go with your season. Think of the time of the year your wedding is taking place and what kind of flowers are in season. This way, you will keep your costs low and more importantly your flowers will be organic and fresh for longer!

2.Talk to the pro
We hear all the more often from industry’s experts how important it is for them to have a sincere and down to the details conversation with you. To understand your vision, to get a feel for you as a person and as a couple, to share inspiration boards and show you their portfolio to eventually establish a common visual goal. This is how you achieve a blooming collaboration with your florist.

3. Wedding flowers don’t cost more because they are rare
A big misconception among couples is that everything wedding related has a markup exactly because there is the wedding prefix in effect. This is not true, especially when it comes down to your wedding flowers. Flowers are sensitive, and require a lot of labor hours to make your wedding compositions happen. If you think about it is a custom service and as in everything tailor-made, prices are higher to reflect manpower.

4. Think about wedding theme and colours
When choosing flowers, it is important to consider the colour palette you wish to work with for your wedding décor and general style. Are you going for a bold statement where dark roses are needed, or are you going for a more ethereal vibe where garden flowers and astybile is more appropriate. Whatever your personal taste, talk it over with your florist to have a blooming collaboration!

5. Beware of your outdoor photo sessions
Having said that flowers are sensitive, it is worth thinking about where you are having your first look and portrait sessions prior to the ceremony and party. Especially if it is during hot weather season, you don’t really want to go around with a dead bouquet. Pro tip; ask your florist to prepare you a second bridal bouquet for your photography sessions and thus, ensure your bridal bouquet will be fresh and fabulous.
