Whether you have just started planning for your big day or you’re already knee-deep in the process, it’s important to prepare questions for potential wedding vendors in advance. This will help you narrow down to your top few choices, since you’ll better understand their expertise, working style and price ranges.
If you’re shopping around for a fantastic wedding floral designer, be sure to ask these questions at your initial consultation.
This one should be the first you ask since it’s the most important. However, if they aren’t available, follow this question up with, “Do you have other wedding florists you recommend?”
Get a feel for what they love to create by asking this question. Are they more traditional? Or do they love creating moodier and more textured florals? This can give you a better sense of what types of work they can make for your special day.
While the answer is almost always “The sooner the better,” some florists may have busier schedules or book up sooner than others. It may also be important to ask this if you are getting married in a busier wedding season.
The answer to this shouldn’t make or break your decision, but it can certainly help if your floral designer is at least familiar with the venue location, style and layout.
Talk to them about your vision for the big day and discuss ideas for how to bring it to life with unique florals and greenery! You might also ask if you could collaborate on a Pinterest board for inspiration.
Unless price isn’t a factor, it’s really helpful to talk about what your ideal floral budget looks like. Although you may want a specific flower to be involved in the design, it can often save you money if you focus more on a specific look or feel in case the flowers you want are out of season on your wedding date.
Look through their portfolios and samples of work to get a better sense of their style and experience. And if you’re really trying to be thorough, you might also ask to read some references or testimonials from past couples.
Some wedding vendors take on more than one wedding client per day. If your wedding florist takes on more than one, ask how many and how they handle that type of situation in regards to deliveries and timelines.

-Megan, Mother of the Bride, Spring 2019 Wedding
“Kaytee is an absolute GEM! She has so much passion and care for what she does, that you feel like she's a friend more than a vendor. She walks you through each step of the floral process with organization, examples, cost, and detail -- all things that make my detail-oriented heart happy. The end result far exceeded anything we could have hoped for or imagined. ALL. THE. GREENERY. Future brides, run, don't walk to Roots for your wedding. From start to finish, she took care of every single floral need to make our day positively beautiful.”
-Laura, Summer 2019 Wedding
"Kaytee became so much more than a vendor for us. The first time I met her I felt as though I met a long lost friend. She was the very first vendor I chose for the wedding (even before the venue) and she lived up to all my expectations and went above and beyond. Each time I met with her I felt confident that she completely comprehended my wants and would fashion them into something that looks put together, yet natural. The day-of she silently transformed a bland rustic space into an enchanting, romantic barn. I couldn't have asked for anything more beautiful or unique."
-Grace, Spring 2019 Wedding
"Kaytee was so great to work with!!! I provided her with some floral inspirations from Pinterest and Instagram but gave her a lot of free rein coming up with the flowers for our wedding and she went above and beyond expectations. Our photographer was obsessed with all the bouquets and we got so many great pictures of them! She did such a good job making my smaller budget work to make high impact arrangements. She's also the sweetest person to be around!"
-Bo, Spring 2019 Wedding
