When you start looking for a florist it is always a good idea to ask other vendors for references. I would say 90% of brides have already chosen their venue, gown, bridesmaids dresses, tuxedos and caterer before starting to look for a florist. Make a list of recommended florists first. Then you can do a simple google search and look at websites in the area. Make another list. Don't just call a florist and ask "what do you charge for weddings?" Any reputable florist will not simply toss out a number without knowing what you want or expect. If they do, beware. That is a red flag. For the most part package deals do not exist today as they once did. Packages are never a good idea. It means they give you little or no choice and your flowers will likely have a manufactured look. I have met few brides that simply do not care what flowers are used or what they will look like for their wedding day! Stay tuned for more!
