Let's Get Personal!

Choosing a Bridal bouquet is a personal thing for most, and can be a bit stressful as well. (Even for us florists!) There are so many choices out there and now with the internet the ideas are endless( so one would think. My darlings, its really important to get ideas from those in the know, as even though cyberspace might say a flower is readily available, you may well be set up for disappointment. I had a sweet gal call me for help recently who was very upset. She had ordered a specific colour and type of flower for her wedding (not from a florist) and found out close to her big day that those flowers were not available here at that time of year. Sadly this happens far too often, and can really throw a wrench in your plans.  
Reputable florists will gladly set up a time to meet and go over your thoughts and ideas, offering suggestions, colours and floral options based on their experience, knowledge of availability and design skills. The thing is, too, that this is a great way to see if you are comfortable working with your florist, and them with you. We in the floral world know what will and wont work for the venue, the time of year, etc. and can always offer a plan B if necessary. Really, for most brides this will be their first (or second) experience in planning a wedding, so rely on the experts for guidance.  
Choosing and designing your bouquet is a very personal and exciting experience, and one that with a little help, can be a fun and memorable time!
