How To Pick A Florist For Your Wedding
As your wedding day approaches, there are likely many important decisions you’re making, and one of these is choosing the right florist. The flowers and decorations you choose will play a key role in creating a beautiful and memorable event that reflect your desired aesthetic. With so many florists to choose from, it can be overwhelming to know where to start. In this blog, we’ll share a few tips for selecting the perfect florist for your wedding. Whether you’re planning an intimate elopement or a grand celebration, these tips will help ensure that your wedding day is everything you’ve dreamed of and more.
What Does A Wedding Florist Do?
First, it’s important to understand what a wedding florist does. A wedding florist is a professional who creates floral arrangements for weddings. They typically work closely with you to design and create bouquets, centrepieces, ceremony decorations and other floral arrangements for your wedding day based on your desired aesthetic, preferences and budget. A good wedding florist will have experience with different types of flowers, colours and styles, and will be able to help you create a cohesive look for your wedding. They’ll also be able to provide advice on how your chosen floral arrangements will look in person, on camera and in different lighting.
What Types of Packages Do Wedding Florists Offer?
Wedding florists typically offer a variety of packages to suit different budgets and needs. At Elsie and Oak, we offer a range of wedding packages, including:

How Long Should I Prepare With A Wedding Florist?
It’s important to start working with your wedding florist as early as possible. Ideally, you should start looking for a florist at least six months before your wedding date. This will give you plenty of time to research different florists, schedule consultations and work with your chosen florist to design your floral arrangements.
When you first meet with a wedding florist, be sure to bring along any inspiration photos or ideas you have. This will help your florist understand your vision and create floral arrangements that match your style. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and express your preferences – a great wedding florist will be happy to work with you to create the perfect floral arrangements for your big day.
