Flowers can really set the tone for a whole wedding. Whether it be a spring, summer, autumn or winter wedding, the flowers you choose will more than likely reflect the season and your personal style. You may want understated and have small arrangements that are of a high quality or you may want bold and big and have flowers everywhere. Whatever your style you will find everything you need to get the perfect flowers for your wedding here in Glasgow.
There are many specialist florists in Glasgow that will deal specifically with your wedding flowers; they are usually talented and committed people that will work tirelessly to get you exactly what you want and in the time you need them for.
When you’re looking for flowers for your wedding then you could start off by looking through flower magazines and bridal magazines to see that sort of style you want. If you have a definite list of flowers that you want using then you need to let the florist know this beforehand. Your florist in Glasgow will always sit down with you and find out exactly what you want. You may want flowers for everyone in the wedding party, or you may just want a few arrangements for the table and for your bouquet.
If you already have your wedding dress and your colour themes in mind; try and see if you could take a picture of the dress or a sample of the colours to see what actually matches with the flowers. This will give the florist a great idea of what flowers could be used. A good florist in Glasgow will actually go out and pick their own flowers and berries from local woodlands and reserves to really get that fresh feeling. You may not even want fresh flowers as you may want to keep your bouquet or some of the arrangements as mementoes.
You will need to take a list of who needs what flowers to your florist; you may have a consultation with your florist where you can discuss this anyway; but if not take a list already prepared.
To find a good florist in Glasgow the best thing to do is give your potential florist an ‘interview’. Look to see if the shop is neat and nicely presented. Do you know anyone else who has used that particular florist? Does the florist have any certificates in floristry and do they have staff members who can help them prepare your wedding flowers? Can your potential florist get flowers that are not the ‘norm’ or can the florist only get roses and other such common flowers. You may be fine with their selection but some people want more exotic bouquets and need a florist that has a supply of these. Do they come with recommendations, do they advertise in big magazines, are the accredited with anything? All these types of potential questions could give you a better picture of how the florist will handle your wedding and your wedding flowers.
Another good point to have already made out when you’re looking for your wedding flowers in Glasgow is to have your budget pre prepared. If you have a budget then you need to make sure you stick to it; wedding flowers are very costly and they can end up eating away at your wedding budget. So keep it realistic and go to different florists in Glasgow and get your flowers priced up. Going for a cheaper florist doesn’t mean that you will get less high quality. As long as you make sore the florist is reputable and can do the work you need, your wedding flowers will look spectacular.
