The Only Wedding Flower
Idea Guide You Need

This wedding flower idea guide will help you plan and organize your wedding flowers. From the ceremony through the reception, the right flower choices can have a huge impact on the decor and feel of your wedding.

The first step is choosing a florist. Start by asking friends, relatives and your wedding planner for referrals. Word of mouth is still the best way to find most wedding vendors. Look for a florist that...
  • Primarily does weddings or large events.

  • Fits your style. A good florist should have books or online galleries.

  • Offers to meet with you to discuss your ideas and thoughts.

  • Listens to your ideas. Look to your florist for guidance, but they should be willing to work with your ideas and special requests.

  • Is reliable and has the appropriate insurance coverage.

  • Has references that you can call.
