Last Minute Floral Details Check List

When your wedding day is fast approaching there are logistical details that can easily fall through the cracks.

Here are a few things to button up with your florist a few weeks before your big day…

  • Timing. What time will your photographer arrive to take photos?  You’ll want to make sure your florist is aware of this timeline if you want photos with your flowers prior to your ceremony.
  • Location. Where do you want your bouquets & boutonnieres delivered?  Should they be brought to you at the chapel or spa?  Will all the men be getting ready at the same location or should the father of the bride’s boutonniere be delivered with bouquets?
  • Numbers. Are there any changes to the number of bouquets or centerpieces you’ll need?  If you don’t have an exact table count, then err on the side of too many pieces rather than too few.  They can always be repurposed elsewhere.
  • Extras. Does your caterer want flowers for garnishes or food stations?  These need to be ordered if you expect to have extra flowers!
  • Preceding. Do you need flowers for your rehearsal dinner?  If you haven’t arranged this yet your wedding florist may be the best person to assist with this since she/he already has a sense of your style.

If you have questions about how the flow of the day should go ask your florist to clarify delivery or design details.

Don’t sweat small details that are out of your control, but DO plan to communicate any last minute changes with your florist or arrange to have a planner or coordinator who can do this on your behalf.

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding and ENJOY EVERY MOMENT!  Trust me, the day will fly by!
