Are You Hiring The Wrong Florist?

Many people agree that flowers are one of the most important elements in your design. From big parties to small get-togethers, flowers can bring that added touch to any setting. If you are planning to appoint a florist for your event, discuss what you want to achieve with your flowers. Many people do not know what they require and will be left with disappointing flowers. Lots of hosts or organizers hire florists that can turn out to be a disappointing investment. If you follow the 5 rules laid out below, you will invest in a good florist that knows exactly what you like and can use flowers to reinforce the mood you must create.

1. Research

This step is very important before you talk to your florist. Discuss what type of flowers you prefer for your special occasion. To get more ideas, look around in local flower shops or even online. Get a taste of florists' outlines and flower arrangements in your area. Knowing what color, size or type of flower you want will let your florist tailor to you. Also, researching different flowers trends can give you more creativity with flowers. If you are aware of what flowers are in season, your purchased flowers will stay strong and stay healthier, longer.

2. Budget

When discussing your budget with a florist, be very firm. Only you know how much you are willing to spend on your flowers. If the quote that a florist gives you is unreasonable, search around your neighborhood. It is always better to find a great deal and a florist that will take your flowers seriously. A knowledgeable florist should be able to suggest new flower ideas within your price range.

3. Communication

Communication is key when dealing with your florist. Your florist must know what you like or dislike. If your florist suggests a theme that you are not comfortable with, be honest. It could save stress and grief later. Get to know your florist better. If you are friendly, you are more likely to solve and negotiate problems. A good florist will build on your ideas and create them into beautiful flowers for your special day.

4. Style

This one is crucial for your flowers to be perfect. Know your florist's style. Florists and flower shops usually have distinct details that are seen in their arrangements and bouquets. Many professional florists stick to one prominent style or topic. If you are unsure about his/her style, ask to look at photos of other weddings, events, etc. that they have planned. Make sure your florist has some experience in this area. If you are still not keen, shop around for another florist who has flowers that you can pour your heart into.

5. Planning

To make an event fabulous, you must organize and plan. Always know where you are going to be placing your flowers and how many arrangements you will need. Florists are great at helping you categorize and outline your feelings and personalities into flowers. This creates mood when you are entertaining your guests. Florists can also point out things that you may have overlooked. All of the little details, like planning and being in control, contribute to the making of a wonderful day!

Florists can be a tremendous asset in helping you in designing and creating magical flowers for your special occasion. Whether a birthday party, wedding, or anniversary many florists are willing to plan any event for you. They can also help you create the appropriate mood for business functions or a more somber statement such as a funeral. After reading these tips, you can be confident that you will save money and time on a good and reliable florist.

If you put these 5 tips for hiring a florist into action, you will be rewarded with exceptional results.
