Florists & Flower Shops
Flowers are an important part of any wedding. No bride is complete without her bouquet nor is a hall considered a wedding hall without flowers. Before you actually go looking for the right florist, it is essential that you write down, and decide on a few things.
You have to first know well before hand what type of wedding and reception you plan to have, and the venue for your wedding. This is because it is no point in getting a huge bouquet if you plan to have a beach wedding as it does not match your informal beach wedding dress.
Choose flowers based on wedding linen
Besides the theme, you have to choose your flowers based on the color of the wedding linens and the color of your bridal gown. The flowers have to complement the wedding linen, wedding decoration and your dress and not clash with them.
It is also better to check with your banquet manager to find out if they include wedding flowers in your catering package or not. If they do provide flowers, find out if they match your wedding plans, and give them any specifications you have for ceremonial flowers and bouquets.
The typical wedding floral package consists of brides bouquets, corsages for moms, grandmothers and other special women, bridesmaid's bouquets, floral arrangements for the church, the centerpieces for the reception and boutonnieres for the groom, groomsmen and the fathers' of the bride and groom.
Make a few comparisons
The size and shape of all this varies, depending on your budget and choice of flowers. Of course, this is the basic package. If you want to, you can include more elaborate flowers like a flower girl basket to the package too.
Once all this is decided, you will have to make comparisons with a few flower shops. There are various choices of florists and flower shops for you to choose from in Jacksonville, San Francisco, Columbus and other cities across the United States.
However it is always better to choose someone local and near the venue so that you save on the delivery costs of the flowers. Besides saving money, the faster the flowers reach your venue, the fresher they are.
Your neighborhood florist is also a good choice
Visit these florists and take a look at their collection of photos of floral arraignments of other weddings to get an idea of their floral rates and flower arrangement capacities. An example of this would be Chicago flowers delivered city-wide. While choosing your flowers, remember that there are many seasonal flowers, which are more expensive than flowers in season.
You could also visit your neighborhood florist to get a better rate for your wedding flowers. Though they won't advertise themselves as a wedding florist, they know all that is required about flowers and its arrangements. Moreover they will offer you more personalized services and will have more patience to find and arrange flowers as your needs.
With all this information about flower shops in Ohio, Florida, New Jerseay, and other states of US, you have to make comparisons to decide on not only the cheapest package, but the most beautiful package for your special day.
