orange wedding flowersCongratulations and Felicitations! Now that you have made one of the most important and happiest decisions of your life, we are here to help you arrange gorgeous flowers for your special day. A list of questions has been prepared that will assist you in choosing the right florist and the perfect flowers for your wedding.

If possible allow 2 months or more in advance of your wedding to organize your flowers.

If you do not have a favourite florist then it is best to do your homework by visiting at least three florist shops, paying particular attention to the varieties, freshness and selection of flowers and designs on display. Ask if the designers have won any awards and if they hold certificates or designations within the florist industry.

Look for someone who listens to you and understands what you want. Florists are very creative and will design beautiful flowers, but it’s a nice touch to add your personal preferences.

Bring in ideas you’ve clipped from magazines or bring along books from the library. If you have fabric and colour samples, bring them along as well. During the consultation you will be shown other ideas also.

You probably had a price in mind when you went shopping for your wedding dress or attire. It is also important to have a budget in mind for your flowers before attending the flower consultation.

Come to the consultation prepared to answer the following questions or just fill them online:

First Name
