Here are some tips to help you consider when deciding on the flowers and arrangements you may choose.
Shop around: Don’t just walk into one florist and like what you see. Visit at least three different florists.

Look around each florist shop, is it organized and well planned, or does it have a disorganized feel to it? This may be a good sign on how this particular florist runs his or her business. Also, make sure the florist you speak with is going to be the one creating the arrangements and setting up your wedding.
