The answer to this question is no. However, what would a wedding celebration be without the beauty, fragrance and color that flowers will add to your special day? They are a traditional part of every wedding celebration symbolizing fertility in the marriage.
How do I select a florist?
Finding a creative and intuitive florist who specializes in weddings can be an incredible help. Ask your caterer, photographer, baker, event site or anyone that might have used a professional event florist in the last year. I recommend booking your florist six to nine months in advance of your wedding. If you are planning to be married during the months of March through June or October and November in the Tucson area, you will want to book your florist well in advance.Set up an appointment to meet the florist and discuss your ideas and needs. Know in advance what your event site will provide for you. Look through Bridal magazines and on line resources to find flowers and bouquet styles that appeal to you and bring them to your potential florist. Tell him or her the style you wish to achieve along with color schemes or themes. Bring photos of your wedding gown and your attendant’s gowns. A swatch and a description of the dresses will usually suffice.It is very important that you feel comfortable and confident in your florist’s abilities. A professional designer will be able to show you photos of their work and suggest options. Inform your floral designer of your budget for flowers and what types of flowers you like. He or she should be able to determine if your desires and your budget are going to line up. Happy planning!
