Did you know that the holidays mark the biggest engagement season of the year? It is estimated that 1/3 of engagements happen during this prime time, which is why I thought it appropriate to prepare the many newly engaged couples with a quick and easy guide to floral design consultations.
DO YOUR HOMEWORK
Before you meet with 10 different floral designers and have the headache of having to sort through proposal after proposal, do a little research. My top favorite places for finding great wedding vendors are wedding blogs; try Style Me Pretty, Green Wedding Shoes, Once Wed, Wedding Chicks–and Indie Bliss, of course!), preferred vendor lists from wedding planners or venues, and recommendations from friends and family.
Before you even meet with a floral designer for a consultation, be sure you like their style, that your wedding date is available, and make them aware of any budget concerns. Other helpful information to have before you meet is their average wedding cost, their business philosophy, and their booking policies. Once you have all this information in hand, schedule 2-3 consultations with your favorites.
