Welcome to Fleur Provocateur’s guide on one of the most crucial aspects of your wedding planning journey – choosing your perfect wedding florist (however we a little biased!). 

Your wedding florals play a pivotal role in setting the tone and ambiance of your special day, making it essential to select a florist who understands your vision and can bring it to life with creativity and expertise. In this post, we’ll walk you through the key considerations to help you make the right decision and ensure your floral dreams blossom into reality.

  1. Understanding Your Vision

Before embarking on your search for the perfect wedding florist, take a moment to immerse yourself in your wedding vision. Close your eyes and envision the atmosphere, the colors, and the emotions and the story of your romance, what you  want to evoke on your big day. At Fleur Provocateur, we believe in the power of storytelling through flowers, and understanding your unique love story and personal style is where the magic begins.

2. Research and Recommendations

Start your search by researching potential wedding florists in the South-West, or your chosen venue’s area. If you have one, your wedding planner will be able to help you with recommendations. Seek recommendations from friends and family whose opinions you trust. Dive into online reviews and browse through portfolios to get a sense of each florist’s style and what appeals directly to you.

3. Budget Considerations

Establishing a realistic budget for your wedding flowers is crucial. Many florists may have a minimum spend. Be upfront about your budget when discussing your vision with potential florists, and ask how they can work within your financial constraints. Remember that quality and expertise come at a price, so strive to strike a balance between your budget and your expectations for floral design.

4. Availability and Flexibility

Wedding dates and seasons can book up quickly, so it’s essential to inquire about a florist’s availability early on. Be sure to ask if they can accommodate your wedding date and venue. Flexibility is also key – look for a florist who is willing to adapt to any changes or unforeseen circumstances that may arise during the planning process.

5. Consultations and Chemistry

Schedule consultations with your top florist choices to discuss your vision and gauge their level of enthusiasm and professionalism. Planning your wedding should be an enjoyable and collaborative experience, its our favourite part. our consultations are where the magic truly happens. Picture yourself sitting down with our team, sharing stories, sipping tea, and watching your vision come to life before your eyes. We’re not just your florists – we’re your confidantes, your allies, and your partners in creating a day that reflects your unique love story.

6. Portfolio and Experience

Reviewing a florist’s portfolio and past work is an excellent way to assess their experience and expertise. Look for diversity in their portfolio, showcasing their ability to create various styles and arrangements. Consider factors like creativity, attention to detail, and quality of execution when evaluating their work. 

7. Contract and Communication

Transparency and trust are at the heart of everything we do at Fleur Provocateur. Review the contract carefully to ensure all details are clearly outlined. Discuss important aspects such as delivery, setup, and payment terms to avoid any misunderstandings later on. Maintain open and transparent communication throughout the planning process to ensure a smooth and stress-free experience.

Trust your instincts, follow your heart, and let your intuition guide you to the florist who speaks to your soul.
