Before you meet with your florist, do some homework. Write down specific flowers you want. They'll be able to tell you if they're in season or not.
Be transparent with your florist. Let them know what your budget is and if something is out of that range, tell them.
Go to the consultation with your color palette and inspiration pictures in hand. This will help your florist understand exactly what you're wanting.
Not having flower girls? That's okay! How about a flower man or a flower grandma? This is another fantastic and fun way to lighten the mood!
Do you want to be hands-on? Some florists will have a DIY option where you and a few of your bridesmaids will meet at the flower shop and a coach will show you how to make the bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres. Will you and your bridesmaids have time to do this two days before your wedding?
Be realistic. If you want hanging installations but only have so many hours rented with the venue, is it worth it to pay for extra time for the florist to install? Some venues charge upwards of $500+ per hour.
Think about what you want to happen to the flowers after the wedding. Do you want family or guests to take them? Talk to your florist about your plan to come up with the most convenient way for guests to take home the flowers but not the vases if you've rented them or don't want guests to take them.
