Being engaged is an exciting time. There are so many important decisions to make in the lead up to your big day, including choosing the perfect flowers. Fleur Provocateur is a luxury wedding florist based in Bruton, operating across the South West in Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire. Their stunning floral designs are tailored to each individual couple’s style and needs. In this blog post, we’ll be discussing things you should consider before your flower consultation to make the most of your time with Fleur Provocateur.

1. Think about your floral budget 

It’s important to have a clear understanding of your floral budget. Traditionally, couples allocate between 10 – 15% of their overall spend for flowers. However, this can vary depending on the size and complexity of your floral arrangements. Having a budget in mind will help Fleur Provocateur create a proposal that works for you and your vision while ensuring that your expectations are met. 

2. Gather floral inspiration 

Bring along an idea of you love and the colors you want to incorporate into your wedding day. Other areas of inspiration – art, music, fashion help us to understand your story, and your vision for your big day. Pinterest, Instagram, and wedding magazines are all great places to start gathering floral inspiration. We will gently remind you of seasonality, so don’t worry if you flower knowledge is lacking. Sharing your inspiration with Caroline and Antonia can help them understand your aesthetic and tailor their designs to your taste.

3. Consider the atmosphere you want to curate 

Consider the atmosphere and “vibe” you want to create for your wedding day. Will your guests be wearing formal attire or something more casual? Is your venue grand and opulent or relaxed and informal? Understanding the atmosphere, you want to create can help Fleur Provocateur in determining what floral arrangements will complement your event. 

4. Prepare basic details 

Be sure to come armed wth basic details such as the wedding location, the number of guests, the style of tables (round or trestle) and your bridal party numbers. Details on your food style whether it is sharing or plated so they can add floral designs to complement them. Don’t worry if you don’t know them all at once, but these details help design a more detailed proposal for you. 

5. Prepare a list of questions 

Finally, prepare a list of questions to ask during your consultation. Caroline and Antonia are a experts in their field and will happily answer any questions you may have. Ask questions about their process, how they will communicate with you in the lead up to your wedding, and their previous work to understand their capability. Being prepared will ensure you leave the consultation with a clear understanding of what to expect from Fleur Provocateur and how they can bring your vision to life.
