What To Ask Your Wedding Florist

We just had to share this fantastic post from our friends at Wedding and Party Network. Here is what they gathered on the top questions to ask your wedding florist.

There are many little details that go into planning a wedding. One little detail that stands out is your flowers. Actually, flowers play a huge role in your wedding since they help convey your theme and style. This is why meeting with your florist is a must. Why? Your florist must understand exactly what you are wanting so they can achieve your vision. That is why we’ve reached out to Jan from New Look Floral Design in Rochester, MN to see what’s important to bring to a meeting with them and these are the responses we received.

1. What should brides bring to a consultation with a wedding florist?

Jan: Color swatches, pictures, budget amounts & corsage/bouti numbers

2. How far in advance should brides book their wedding florist?

Jan: 3-6 months

3. What are the top questions a bride should ask when contacting potential wedding florists?


  • Is my wedding date available? Yes/No
  • Is my budget amount reasonable? Yes/No
  • Who will be designing my flowers? I will with help from staff
  • Do you have suggestions for my theme/flowers? Yes/No

These questions and answers are really helpful when you are planning to meet with your wedding florist. Also, thank you to New Look Floral Design for helping us out!

  1. Great article! Your list of what to bring to a consultation is especially helpful. My fiancee and I are just starting to look at florists and the different options available, and we haven’t even talked about budget yet. I’m definitely going to have to look into that.

    Great article! I was lucky that i ended up with a great florist for my big day (Kendra at Loves Me Flowers in Seattle) however did meet with a few others that I ran far far away from– and they were some of the top in the city! It’s so hard to make these hires– as you only do it once and have such little expirience to fall back on. Posts like these are so helpful

  3. thanks so much! brilliant article. i have been putting off going to florists, but now i feel equipped!
