What other décor elements can you provide (aisle runner, candelabras, trees, chuppah, votives, mirrors, etc.)? Are these rental items? How will these items affect the overall cost?

Some florists offer additional decor elements alongside their floral arrangements. Inquire about the availability of items like aisle runners, candelabras, trees, chuppahs, votives, mirrors, and more. Determine whether these items are rentals and how their inclusion may impact the overall cost of your floral arrangements.

Can you create sample arrangements before I sign the contract? If so, is there an additional fee for this?

Requesting sample arrangements can provide a tangible preview of the florist's work and help you visualize how their designs will complement your wedding theme. Inquire whether the florist offers this service and whether there's an additional fee involved.

Do you have a portfolio of past weddings you have done that we can look at?

Reviewing the florist's portfolio is a fantastic way to assess their creativity, expertise, and attention to detail. By browsing through their past wedding projects, you can gain insights into their range of styles and their ability to bring different visions to life.

Will you help us create a floral plan to achieve the look we want while also staying within our budget?

Collaborating with a florist who understands your vision and budget is essential. A skilled professional will work closely with you to create a floral plan that achieves the desired look while respecting your financial boundaries.

Have you worked at our venue before?

Experience working at your chosen venue can be advantageous. Familiarity with the venue's layout, logistics, and restrictions can help the florist plan and execute the floral arrangements seamlessly.

What will the process look like to finalize our floral plan with you?

Understanding the florist's process for finalizing the floral plan will help you stay organized and ensure that you and the florist are on the same page. Discuss timelines, meetings, and any necessary approvals to avoid any misunderstandings.

Are there any other fees we need to be aware of (delivery, setup, breakdown, etc.)?

To avoid unexpected costs, inquire about any additional fees related to delivery, setup, breakdown, or other services. Having a clear understanding of the financial aspects will help you accurately budget for your wedding flowers.

Do you handle breakdown at the end of the wedding?

Enquire about the florist's involvement in the breakdown process after the wedding. Some florists may offer services to dismantle and clean up floral arrangements, ensuring a stress-free post-wedding experience for you and your loved ones.
