Planning your wedding can seem overwhelming – but you’ve already taken care of the hardest part: booking your venue and picking a date for your wedding at Windows on the Water. What more could you possibly need? Well, flowers, of course.

That part of the wedding may seem relatively simple and straightforward, but it’s important to ask your florist several questions before you book them. That way, there will be no hiccups on your big day. However, even with that in mind, what should you ask your florist before you book them for your wedding day?

Ask About Their Style, Experience, and Availability

Honestly, this is one of the most important things you can ask any florist. Everyone has an idea of what they want their wedding to look like: knowing that your florist is experienced, competent, and, most importantly, available for your wedding day. You don’t want to book a florist who has three other events to cater that day, after all. 

Can We See Some Samples, and Do You Do Overall Decor?

Another important aspect of the planning stage is being able to see what you’re purchasing before you buy it – after all, you don’t want to have a great idea in mind, then come down to your special day and realize that you hate it. Furthermore, it’s almost always best to choose a florist who will be able to advise you on how their pieces will look in conjunction with your tablecloth, chairs, and other features – and to make sure everything looks harmonious on your wedding day. 

Pricing and Refund Policies, Liability Insurance, and More

Of course, the price is one of the inevitable questions – it’s important to know if your chosen florist can work within your budget. It’s also important to know what happens if you’re just not happy with their work, or if something goes wrong in the long run. Knowing that you are covered if, say, you have to postpone the wedding is going to help ease your mind.

Asking these questions will help ensure that you’re fully prepared for your wedding day. Of course, there might be other questions you want to ask once you’ve booked your team, but knowing the most important questions to ask in the beginning will help save you a lot of time, stress, and hassle from the start.
