First of all if you are reading this post, CONGRATULATIONS you are getting married and we are so happy for you.
Here are some ideas and tips that you might like to have before getting your flowers for the wedding:
-Check with your venue for any florist recommendation they might have. For example I know that the Ellis Ranch Event Center & Wedding Park has vendors listed that they recommend
-Schedule interviews with several florists that have your kind of style you want. (Styles: Classic, Natural, Modern, Playful, Romantic, or Country)
-Look through Magazines, Pinterest, etc for style of flowers and color theme you would like to have at your wedding
-Schedule interviews with several florists that have your kind of style you want
-Make a comparison sheet of their prices, who can work on your budget, and if they are available on the dates you have your wedding on.
-Try to make your color theme work through out your wedding (such as bridesmaid dresses, reception, etc)
-Figure out what types of flowers are available. And what will work with an outdoor or indoor wedding. Usually seasonal flower are less expensive too
-Be upfront with your florist about your budget. It will help you and your florist to come up something that you both will be happy with
– Giving your florist pictures or ideas of what your bridesmaids, grooms, in-laws, and parents are wearing, will also help on your decision on which flowers to choose.
-depending what time of the year you are getting married, beware of certain fragrances that can be overwhelming
– Ask what are your delivery requirements and any extra fees
-Look at their portfolio is a must in my book
-deposit fees or cancelation policy

I know if I would get married again I would love vintage containers for my flowers, mason jars, shot gun boutonnieres for the grooms, anything that would make my country wedding be the talk of the town. What kind of wedding are you planning? Just leave your comments, we would love to hear from you.
And most of all have fun planning your wedding!
