Flowers can play a big role in a wedding. Getting beautiful, fresh flowers can enhance and brighten your overall wedding theme and decorations. Therefore, when you are selecting and hiring a florist, it should be done by careful deliberation. You will most probably be buying the most flowers that you will buy in your life for your wedding. This also means the most that you will be spending for flowers. Flowers are required for many aspects of a wedding such as the boutonnieres for the groom and groomsmen, corsages for the mothers, table décor, and of course, the bouquet for the bride and bridesmaids. Therefore, in order for all of these aspects in your wedding to be executed properly you need to hire a good florist. Here are five things you should consider when hiring one:
1. Look For Recommendations
First, you should look for recommendations from recently married friends or family. By thinking back to recent weddings which had good flowers, you can decide who to call up for a recommendation. In addition, the venues for the ceremony and reception may have florist contacts that they would have worked with frequently and they can recommend to you. This will be useful since the florist would then be familiar with the venue.
2. Schedule a Meeting With Them
You should not simply decide on a florist for your wedding because their flower delivery in Johor Bahru is on time and their flowers last for long. After looking for recommendations you should have a meeting with them to discuss your requirements and see if they can meet them. You and the florist should get to know one another and communicate what you expect from them. However, if you feel that the florist does not match your style and preferences, you should move on to the next one.
3. Look at Their Current and Previous Work
Arrange to meet with them at their shop, which will allow you to see any arrangements or bouquets that are pre-made and kept for customers. This would give you a small insight into their work. Furthermore, you can request for their portfolio to look a previous work that they have done.
4. Ask For Estimates
After you have narrowed down your choices you should ask for estimates for the work that they could be doing for you. Make sure that they include all costs including the flower prices, designing charges and flower delivery costs.
5. They Offer You Options
If you have a tight budget, the florist you select should offer you choices of flowers you like at a cheaper rate. For instance, if you want roses, your florist should suggest a simple bunch of roses hand-tied with chic ribbon which would need far less labor and hence will be less expensive than roses arranged into a complex bouquet.
