Wedding & Event Packing List: Florist Edition

Who else has stress dreams about forgetting to bring something important to an event?? Just me? Well in order to give myself some organization (and peace of mind), I keep a handy dandy list of most of the things I could need at an event as a Florist. Whether you’re a brand-new Florist or a seasoned professional, you already have some sort of list (mentally or not) of what you bring to events, and everyone’s list is a little different. One of my favorite things to do is talk to other Florists about what some of their “must bring” items are, especially since this usually leads to horror stories of when they forgot to bring something. It happens to all of us, but hopefully this Wedding & Event Florist Packing List will help you remember something and prevent a horror story of your own:

  • Pocketed tool apron
  • Floral clippers
  • Large shears
  • Wire cutters
  • Cable cutters
  • Everyday scissors
  • Ribbon scissors
  • Floral Glue
  • Floral wire
  • Waterproof tape
  • Clear tape
  • Stem tape
  • Zip ties (different lengths)
  • Fishing line
  • Chop sticks (good for added support or impromptu stems)
  • Rubber bands
  • Floral food packets
  • Ribbon (a few different colors)
  • Water tubes
  • Tape measure
  • Trash bags
  • Gloves
  • Boutonniere pins
  • Safety pins
  • Corsage wristlet
  • Step ladder
  • Broom and Dustpan
  • Crowning Glory (flower spray)
  • Lighters
  • Batteries
  • Pens
  • Portable phone charger
  • Sealable jugs of water (to top off vases)
  • Index cards
  • Business Cards
  • Snacks
  • Water bottle (usually more than 1)

Before leaving for the wedding/event I always:

  • Double check my directions
  • Double check my order list and timeline
  • Make sure the gas tank is full

I hope this list helps and that you go into your next wedding or event feeling more prepared! From one Florist to another, Happy Floristing!
