Your wedding flowers are not only a beautiful addition to your day, but also an amazing way to showcase your wedding’s unique style and aesthetic. As with any part of your wedding, there are many options for how to approach the flowers. Some couples will choose to forgo them all together or opt for non-traditional decor like live potted plants, artificial flowers, or any number of other creative options. If you do decide you want fresh blooms to adorn your big day, you need a great florist to help bring your vision to life. Here are some tips to help you choose your dream wedding floral team and recommendations for great Utah florists.

Some Things to Consider as you Look at Wedding Florists

Think About Your Floral Style Preferences

When choosing a florist, you should start with a sense of the look you’re going for. Make note of your favorite types of blooms and arrangements. There are many different types of flowers and colors to consider, but also different styles and shapes of bouquets and floral arrangements. Do you like traditional bouquets, romantic cascades, modern minimalist centerpieces, or wild arrangements of unique blossoms? Pinterest and wedding blogs will come in very handy here. Look at lots of different floral arrangements and bouquets and see if you notice certain elements that you’re frequently drawn to.

Like any artist, florists bring their own unique style to the table. It's important to choose a florist whose work you connect with rather than just picking someone willy nilly and asking them to recreate something you saw online. Look at your potential florist’s portfolio to see if you like the type of work they do. Then you can share your favorite ideas and color palette with them and let them work their magic. Florists are expert artists who will help bring your vision to life. They’ll know what’s in season at the time of your wedding, which textures and colors will work well together, and which look-alike blooms may be subbed in for something that’s out of season or out of budget.

Also keep in mind that your floral color palette should be loose. While you want a cohesive look to your wedding, flowers don’t necessarily come in the same exact shade as your linens and bridesmaid dresses. Give your florist a general color scheme to work within, but don’t be so rigid as to rule out variations and shades within that. After all, flowers come from nature. Their beauty stems (see what I did there) from their diversity and imperfection.

Plan Your Budget

Flowers are going to account for a big chunk of your budget, so it’s important to find a florist whose style you like and whose vision you trust. Your floral cost will include the actual flowers along with the florist’s time and artistry in putting them together and installing them on site. There are many floral details that will impact the final price, such as the types of blooms, seasonality, the complexity and size of the arrangements, your total guest count, and the size of your venue and number of areas to decorate.

Before reaching out to potential florists for a proposal, you should have a sense of how much you can spend on flowers. This will rule out some florists, and will also help your florist know how to approach the design proposal. A good rule of thumb for your floral budget is to land around ten percent of your total wedding budget, though this can vary depending on your situation. Be upfront with any florists you’re considering about what your budget is and what your top priorities are for the floral design. That way, they will be able to suggest creative solutions and potential alternatives to stick to your budget while still bringing your dreams to life.

The Importance of Good Communication

Be sure to choose a florist who you communicate well with. With all of the inevitable stress of planning a wedding, you don’t want confusion or miscommunication to add to the chaos. Here are a few good questions to ask your florist early in the process.

Ask for Recommendations and Read Reviews

Last but not least, ask for floral recommendations! Has one of your friends been married recently? Did you attend a wedding last summer with gorgeous flowers? Asking around for recommendations may just lead you to your dream florist.

It’s also important to read reviews on WeddingWire, Google, or the Knot to see what other couples have to say about the florists you’re considering. This holds true for all your wedding vendors and is a great way to get a sense of the type of experience your wedding team will provide.
