Questions to Ask To Your Florist

Even florists and flower shop owners themselves admit they couldn’t name all kinds of flowers back when they weren’t in the business yet. Hence, you just don’t have to worry if you are having trouble distinguishing a rose from a carnation. Well, your unfamiliarity with flowers is actually the reason why you’re looking for a florist. Whether it is for your wedding or any other special event, it is very important to tap the services of a good, experienced, and reliable flower shop.

Other than the fact that you should be hiring someone whose work you like, you also must be able to ask them the right questions. So what should you be asking them?

1. Am I buying in-season flowers?

You probably have the varieties of flowers in mind right before you begin looking for the best florist out there. But while you have that information, it’s not particularly sure if you have any knowledge or idea if those flowers are actually in season. You definitely will get utterly disappointed learning on the last minutes that your florist cannot provide you the flowers you want for the simple reason that they’re not in season. Anyhow, you might as well choose one that can grow all-year round, something like tulips roses, and hydrangea. This is where a good flower shop comes in; they’re able to provide you alternative options, something which resembles the flowers you originally want.

2. Do you charge to breakdown?

Traditionally, the florist will be charging you if you keep the vases but they also might lower down their usual rates for setup and breakdown if you don’t require them to go back to the venue after the event is done.

3. What is contained in the contract policy?

Always demand a written contract to be signed by you and the florist. You don’t want to put all the verbal agreement and details up in the air and without written assurances that they will be fulfilled. All the specific, even the littlest details need to be laid in the contract before you sign them.

4. Am I getting several consultations right before the actual event?

While you may be able to visit and call the florist whenever you want, asking for samples and doing consultations is another thing. Hence, don’t forget to ask and inquire about their specific policy on providing samples, say bouquets and centerpieces and how much are they going to charge for them.

5. Are we going to do a walk-through and when will it be?

You should bear in mind that every event which includes flowers will have to have a walk-through, especially the ones like weddings. You don’t want to risk making mistakes and last minute problems on the actual day of the event.
