What should I bring to my floral consultation?

Your designer wants to create an event full of beautiful memories for you and your family. We will be able to offer you more creative suggestions, and ensure your personal style is reflected in your event, based on the information that you provide.

Any items that you bring in are beneficial to the consultation process. Pictures of bouquets or centerpieces that you may enjoy or a swatch of a particular color pallet all help in the design of your event. Photos or fabric samples of your dress or linens show the style you are looking to incorporate into such a special day.

Before setting up a consultation there are a few items you should know:
The number of attendants, family members and other items you will want floral items created.
What colors you plan on using for your event
Where will your ceremony and reception locations be?
Your estimated guest count
