Brides, we get it. No matter your budget, everyone has one. It can be easy to take shortcuts here and there when planning a wedding but we really believe that a great wedding florist is worth the cost. Like photographers, it can feel like there are SO many florist options. When you get quotes from 3 or so florists it can be easy to take the cheapest route. We fully believe gorgeous florals enhance your wedding in so many ways.

When you look for wedding inspiration on Style Me Pretty or Pinterest, you’ll likely see that the wedding florals are the epicenter of the wedding design. Flowers have a way of bringing people joy, creating color, bringing design to a blank canvas venue, and adding a “wow” factor. The colors, textures, and types of flowers chosen will showcase your overall wedding vision and design in a beautiful and curated way. The color theme will stream through your entire wedding album from the florals used to design the invitation suite and detail shots, to your bridal portraits, to the ceremony, and finally for your dinner reception. High-impact beautiful florals go a long way.
Just like photographers, every wedding florist has his or her own style. If you choose the cheapest florist but show inspiration pictures of a very different style than they usually produce, you likely will not be happy with the results. We suggest searching on Instagram for the latest and most active florists in the wedding market. Look for those that post their work consistently so you can see a variety of the types of weddings and styles they’re great at. Don’t be afraid to reach out to a few that you love and hear about their wedding process!

In the beginning of planning you may think that you have to have extravagant flowers on every single guest table but we find that’s not the case. A lot of couples choose their favorite florist and opt for more high-impact pieces like a grand ceremony flower installation, a beautifully adorned head table, and a bridal bouquet designed to perfection. They choose to go smaller in other areas in order to make a statement with the most important part of the day. Read more on how to maximize your floral budget here!
