When should we book Rose Petals and Lace

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.
