Colors

Color can powerfully influence our mood and style, especially when planning events with flowers. Your guests will feed off of the energy your floral arrangements give off from the moment they enter the space, so your florist must understand your desired style and mood preferences as early as possible in the planning process so they can design arrangements that reflect that.

Budget

Your selection of flowers and the size and complexity of your arrangement will determine how much your bouquet costs. Certain flowers (such as peonies, gardenias, and hydrangeas) tend to be more costly than others; some flowers only become available during certain times of the year, increasing prices.

Other factors affecting flower prices include shipping and labor expenses when getting them to your florist. To maintain an affordable floral budget, try selecting in-season and locally grown options rather than exotic or out-of-season ones that need to be shipped in.

Reusing flowers from your ceremony at your reception can save money; consult with your florist on how best to do this.

Remember to account for any applicable taxes when setting your budget. Sales tax laws vary by location and may add an extra percentage or fee to your total bill. Some florists also add service/setup fees, rental charges for vases, and other floral hardware rental fees as additional charges – you must stay within your budget by keeping track of them all!
