Newly engaged brides often ask when they should visit their florist. Is it too soon for 2011? NO! Is it too late for 2010-well that depends. Good florists may book popular dates well in advance. Steps we encourage: Book your reception hall and ceremony location. Next select your dress and choose bridesmaids dresses or have a color scheme in mind. Then you have most of the details that can help with flower choices, bouquet types, ceremony decor and centerpieces. Clip and save pictures of floral decor & bouquets that you like. Have a budget in mind. Flowers can be 5 - 10% of your total wedding budget, more if you would like linens and other decor.
