How To Find a Wedding Florist

Flowers can be a huge part of any wedding, big or small. It’s probably the one day of your life where you get to carry around a beautiful bouquet, have flowers in your hair and adorn practically every area around you with beautiful blooms. So why not make the most of it? But when it actually comes down to choosing a wedding florist – where on earth do you start? The vast majority of people, myself included, love fresh flowers, but have little idea of names and varieties, or what is in season and when. 

Given that the starting price for wedding flowers is around £1000, you need to think carefully about choosing your florist.

DIY Wedding Chair Decorations

We were recently joined by florist Sarah Richardson, founder of Leafy Couture who demonstrated how to make beautiful wedding chair decorations using flowers and foliage.

If you fancy a bash at some Do-It-Yourself then this is a relatively straight forward project to try. We recommend decorating you and your partner’s chairs to make them stand out from guests – either for the ceremony or reception or of course both! We are very much behind reusing your wedding decor wherever you can, making your budget go further AND it’s kinder to the environment.

We used beautiful gold leaf ribbon by Lancaster and Cornish to add the perfect finish to our DIY Wedding Chair Back but you can, of course, use ribbons or fabrics that tie in with your colour scheme or theme.

Wedding Florist – Important Questions To Help Find The One

Finding a wedding florist can be quite the task. There are thousands of them to choose from. But as with most talented creatives, not all are created equal. Florists vary in style, expertise, price point and of course, location. Flowers may also be way high up on your budget priority list or not much of a consideration at all. But like many of your wedding suppliers, we advocate doing your research and finding a florist that not only jives with your vision for your day, but also ticks all of your required boxes. And in case you’re unsure of what those boxes should be, we’ve created a list of questions for your wedding florist to help you along.

Summer Wedding Flowers – Inspiration From The List

Summer is just magical, isn’t it? It’s the height of wedding season for good reason. Longer, brighter nights perfect for partying. Warmer temperatures and (hopefully) less rain. But probably most notably in the world of florists and stylists, the landscape just bursts to life as the choice of blooms for summer wedding flowers explodes. From the early release of big pillowy peonies, to the abundance of white sprays of delicate tiny blossoms, summer is the perfect time to play with scale, colour and texture. And with such an array of blooms to choose from, the only problem is… Where to start? 

We hope you can find some inspiration in the beautiful images laced throughout this post. And if you’re in the process of turning inspiration into reality, consult The List for our handpicked choice of florists up and down the country to help you design the floral focus of your big day.

Whether you choose to embrace the traditionally warm reds and oranges, decide to take advantage of the deep jewel colours or prefer a simple neutral or pastel palette, an expert florist will be able to guide you through the blooms available during this transition season.
