From bouquets to centerpieces, the flowers you choose for your wedding are essential to helping fulfill your wedding vision. At our Atlanta barn venue, we believe florals are a beautiful way to express the unique personalities of the couple. Since your florals are so important for your special day, our dear friend Melissa at A Delicate Petal is sharing with us the most important things to consider when choosing your florist.
When searching for a florist, make sure that they are capable of executing the exact style + look you have in mind for you wedding day! One way to do this is to walk around the store and see some of their example pieces. The different arrangements displayed should show a variety of styles, skill + creativity. It can also give you some inspiration if you’re still considering different arrangements and styles.
It is also important to ask lots of questions pertaining to how the florist will design and deliver your wedding florals. You will better be able to determine if they are able to provide what you are looking for when you are informed on what the florist’s process looks like. Make sure to ask questions about the small details of arrangement + delivery. At A Delicate Petal, we believe expressions of love can be delivered through flowers. Everything from the design to the delivery needs to be executed perfectly!

Besides the prices listed for their services, look into how much they require as a deposit and what extra ‘fees’ they have. These small fees can add up and add unexpected costs to the pricing quote. Here at A Delicate Petal, we’re pretty straight forward. It’s $100 to hold your date and time. The only other ‘fees’ that we have are vase rental and delivery. No catches! We offer no minimum to book with us, a quote the same day as your consultation, and a team of experts working to design your ideal florals for your perfect day!
How you are treated when you enter the store is very important. If the florist is friendly + accommodating, you can expect the same from their services. As a family-owned and operated business, we take delicate and individual care of every single arrangement, and every single customer. Many florists will go out of their way to provide excellent customer service + offers. We offer the ability to change or edit your quote up until 30 days before your wedding date.
So brides, do you have any tips for how you choose your florist? We’d love to hear!
