Frequently Asked Questions
1What should I bring when I have my wedding consultation?
Your consultant will be able to offer you more creative suggestions based on the information that you provide. Your florist will want to create a spectacular and memorable event for you. Anything you can bring will be beneficial. Photos that depict what you have in mind are extremely helpful. Bring a photo of your dress and a sample of the fabric or lace if you have it, as well as swatches and photos of the bridesmaids’ dresses. Also, think about what “style” of wedding you want.
