Salem Wedding Florists
A lot of people that are planning a wedding wonder what is the big deal about having wedding flowers. Since they are going to die in a few days and at the same time can cost quite a bit of money, aren't they a waste? There are two factors that answer this question of wonderment. First, keep in mind that flowers, more than any other wedding item, are what brings an overall tone and style to your wedding scene. Without them, your space will be quite empty, in other words, flowers complete the picture. The second issue is that your wedding flowers will be one of the most photographed details of your entire wedding. Think about it, there will be people holding flowers, there will be arrangements down isle ways and on tables, and even flowers in various holders of every sort. So, as a one time deal, for the most important day of your life, why not go all out and make sure that your wedding venues are graced with some of the most amazing flowers and arrangements. To make sure that happens, we have provided some tips below that we hope leads you to a professional wedding florist in the Salem ares who will give you everything you ever dreamed of.
For a first step, you can start to look at the websites of local florists. You want to make sure that the website is professional in every way. Any site that you see that is not well designed or put together, you should not consider that florist to do your wedding. We consider any material that a so called professional puts out there like a website to be a reflection on who that person is and quite possibly on the type of work that might do. However, any that look professional and that include amazing portfolio work of arrangements that you love, write down their name and contact information for further research. If you have a friend or family member that has recently seen some amazing flowers at a wedding, try to track down who the florist was. Once you have at least 5 candidates, it is time to setup some interviews. When you are across the table from each candidate, a good place to start is their experience. Find out how long they have been in business? Is this a full-time business or a side gig? How many weddings have they designed flowers for? Where did they receive their training? Do they have a set style or are they flexible? Do you like their style? Look at their portfolio of past work they have done. If you have a floral budget, share that with each candidate. They should be able to tell you what they can provide you for that amount. Ask them what their suggestions are for saving you money.
Bring your color scheme to each meeting. What kind of flowers do they recommend based on these colors? How will they create coordinating items like boutonnieres, bridesmaids flowers, and centerpieces? Do they provide any other kind of decorative pieces like aisle runners, trees, candleabras, trees, arches, votives, mirrors and more? What would be the added fee? Ask them to sketch out some ideas right there in front of you.
What will their fee be for what you are asking for? Find out what the bottom line fee is and what they consider to be an extra fee. What do they require to reserve their services? All of these questions should provide you with enough information about each candidate in order to allow you to make an informed decision. Once you do, let your professional run with your ideas and theirs in order to create a floral look that you will never forget.
