Know your flower STYLE...with 5 simple questions!

So, we have been chatting about fleurs for the last couple of posts.  And, funny enough, you might not think style has a lot to do with flowers.

When you think of "your style", what immediately pops in your head?  Clothes?  Jewelry?  Or, maybe shoes?!?  

You probably weren't about to say flowers.  And, strangely enough, flowers are what can really make or break the style of your wedding or event. However, many times, it's the flowers that people have the hardest time knowing how to explain what they want.  (And, here's a hint...sometimes it's showing what you don't like that gives the best clues!)

I've found that the more communication you give your florist, the more they are able to understand your vision for the day. With that understanding, should come the look you're dreaming of for your wedding.

When you describe what you like (or don't like) to your florist, make sure they ask you these five things...and, if they don't make sure you tell them!

Five Questions Your Florist Should Ask...

1.  Do you prefer hand tied or cascading (trailing) bouquets?

2.  Do you prefer a mixture of flowers or all one type of flower 
(composite is their fancy word for this)?

3.  What is the style of your wedding?  

(elegant, natural, whimsical, classic, modern?)

4. What are your favorite flowers, and your least favorite flowers?

5. What colors do you want to use?

If all you told them was what flowers you like, you never know what look you will really get.  Those five questions will give them a starting place to know exactly what your style is.
