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.

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.
