There are hundreds of details to consider when wedding planning, and if you don’t have the right guidance, it can seem overwhelming. Straight from the floral experts, here are some hints to help ensure that hiring your florist – and choosing your flowers – will go smoothly and result in a gorgeous day. For your Columbus area wedding, begin a conversation with an expert at Griffin’s Floral Design. We don’t just provide wedding flowers, we plan events!
First and Foremost: Experts advise speaking to every vendor – venue, flowers, caterer, dress shop – before committing to anything. This will help you to avoid allocating too much of your budget to the venue before you understand how much the flowers will cost – or learning that your must-have band isn’t available on the day you booked.
Be Willing to Listen: Wedding florists do this for a living, and they have unlimited ideas on how to make your day even more beautiful than you imagined – while staying within budget.
Be Willing to Talk: It is necessary that you communicate with your floral professionals – they can help you to choose the perfect flowers based upon the venue, color palette, budget, and time of year.
Have a Flexible Vision: Your perfect venue has a gorgeous view, do you really want to have towering centerpieces that will obstruct your guest’s line of sight? There are many things that may require re-thinking your vision board, so stay willing to hear ideas.
Timing is Everything: Don’t wait too long to order your wedding flowers! Your floral designers may be ordering flowers from other states or even other countries – so a 6-8 week lead time is imperative, and several months notice is better.
Overall, your best chance for taking the stress out of your wedding planning is leaving enough time, preparing a budget based on information the vendors provide and keeping the conversation open to ideas. Griffin’s Floral & Event Design should be your first call for your Columbus wedding – we will help you to visualize, coordinate, and stage the wedding of your dreams, and wedding flowers are only the beginning.
