Your Wedding Flowers | Q and A’s

There are lots of options for your wedding flowers and you will know if the florist you have chosen fits in with your flowery dreams and designs for the big day… But, as we all know it’s not just a question of style – you need substance as well. Here’s a list of questions and answers that we get asked all the time by potential brides and grooms…

The Wedding Date

Is my Wedding date available? It’s very unusual for us to block out a date because we have a team of florists and help that we schedule in to deal with the bookings that we take.   How many other weddings or events will you schedule on the same day? Again this is about our scheduling, we never over schedule and we will have worked out the time and people needed to make your designs in good time and perfect order without compromise. Full Stop.   How far in advance of the wedding will you create the bouquets and arrangements, and how are they stored? It depends… We buy your flowers in bud and this and the sort of arrangements determine when the arrantements are put together. For example a classic bouquet might be designed and arranged a few days before the wedding whereas a shower bouquet in oasis would very likely be made on the morning of the wedding…

Floral Budget:

Do you require a minimum floral budget? No we don’t – we work to all budgets. Obviously you can’t have a floral extravaganza without the appropriate spend but we have completed plenty of simple weddings for a few hundred pounds and the flowers look fantastic.   Can you work with my budget? Almost always :) and we will certainly do our best.   What recommendations can you give me to maximize my budget? All sorts of compromises can be made. For example you can save on the bridal bouquet by choosing a smaller version like a flower girl posy. For venue flowers what about re-using the bridesmaid posies by having vases with water ready on the tables ready for the bridesmaids to pop them in? Or how about a little DIY – make your own venue arrangements with a bucket of blooms.   Do you offer specific packages or is everything customized? We do offer a package service and a bespoke option.

Background Check:

How long have you been in business? We have grown and supplied flowers since 2008 and had a full wedding service since 2013.   How many weddings have you done? We currently complete between 200 and 260 weddings each year and have won Best Wedding Florist for the West Midlands!   Do you have a portfolio of weddings you've recently done that I can browse? YES! http://www.greatbritishflorist.co.uk/blog/?s=real+wedding
