When to Book a Florist

You’re engaged, congratulations!!! There is so much to do and I hope this little tidbit of information can help take a bit of stress off your shoulders! There are plenty of guides out there on timelines for wedding planning, not to mention every vendor is different in how far out they book, but, in general, here is the best time to book your Wedding Florist.

First, make sure you’ve picked a date and booked your venue. This is important since if we don’t know what our canvas looks like, we can’t tell you how best to decorate it or what it will cost to do so (at least not accurately). 

The next thing you’ll want done before reaching out to a Florist is your guest list. If you know roughly how many people you’ll be inviting, this will help estimate counts and costs. You’ll usually have some wiggle room to adjust these numbers after booking your florist, but you should definitely have a starting point. 

Lastly, you need to have created an outline of your overall budget. When you reach out to a florist, we typically put time into providing a quote that’s specific just to you. If you don’t have a budget you won’t be able to make a decision on whether or not we’re a good fit.

Once you have your date, venue, and numbers, you can always start looking into florists! However, I recommend booking your florist between 12-8 months out. Usually, a florist will have their calendar open anywhere from 14-3 months out but in general, but the 12-8 month range will mean larger likelihood your date is still available and that we can provide a more accurate quote for you. There are always going to be special cases, I’ve even taken a wedding one month before the date and it was wonderful, but try not to cut it that close! 

With love,
