You are excited about planning your wedding and you have lots of ideas and inspiration photos, not to mention visions in your head that you’ve imaged for years. Some couples tackle the planning process eagerly and others don’t know where to start. Our first piece of advice is to prioritize what is most important to YOU for your special day and then book those vendors first. Secure the experts that are going to create the experience that YOU want to remember most. Maybe it is the food, the music, the photography…we certainly hope it is your flowers! Our second piece of advice, and possibly the most important, is to hire experienced professionals and then TRUST us!

So, where do you start when planning for your wedding flowers? Bring us your ideas, dreams, & inspirations, and let us show you what we can do. That is true regardless of your floral budget. Some couples come to us with only a color scheme. Others come with very specific ideas. You don’t have to figure it out yourself. That’s our job! Remember – you are purchasing a SERVICE to provide your wedding flowers, not just a product. Our designers are Floral Artists – and our talented event staff is equally experienced & innovative at executing the details from beginning to end.

Navigating the costs associated with a wedding can be daunting, and many people are surprised at the cost of wedding flowers. If you’ve searched online, hundreds of blogs and articles pop up with content that can be confusing, contradictory, and even misleading. Wedding guides talk about the ‘average’ cost of wedding flowers – and it is impossible to know what they included in their calculations. Did they include DIY weddings? Wedding-party-only flowers? Weddings in your part of the country? Then, there are at those gorgeous photos. Are they from real weddings or a styled photo shoot? Some articles suggest that you can spend $2,000 on wedding flowers but include photos overflowing with flowers that require a six-figure wedding budget.

Communication is key in managing everyone’s expectations. While not all wedding florists will itemize their proposals, we do. After your Initial Consultation, we will prepare a detailed proposal showing floral items, rental items, as well as delivery, setup, & strike fees. Our Event Manager will be your go-to contact to answer any questions and fine-tune the details. Below is a list of our starting price points for certain popular floral items, but everything is customized so we are not confined to these items. Remember, you are not just purchasing flowers, you are hiring the Andrew’s Garden Team to imagine, design, & create your floral items as well as coordinate with your venue and other vendors to make sure everything is seamlessly executed for your wedding day.

When researching wedding florists, it is important to get a feel for their aesthetic and level of experience. Referrals from your friends or your venue are always the best place to start. Following Instagram and looking at websites of prospective florists can show you a lot too. Look for consistency, creativity, level of detail, and a style that appeals to you. When considering your options, narrow it down to 2-3 whose work you love, and start there. Most importantly, trust your intuition. When you meet with Andrew’s Garden or other prospective florists, whether in person or virtually, take note of how the meeting made you feel. Did they listen more than talk? Did they understand your vision? Did they offer unique ideas or suggestions to help work with your budget? Did you leave excited about the possibilities? Trust & communication are so important in the relationship with your wedding florist – and it is best for all of us if there is a connection!

At Andrew’s Garden, we love the process of creating your wedding florals – and we always aim to exceed your expectations. From the Initial Consultation onward, we know it is all about the layers and the details. That meaningful bloom in your bouquet, the sprig of rosemary at each plate, a small floral touch in an unexpected place – we will make sure you & your guests never forget how it felt to be at your wedding.

Trust the Floral Artists at Andrew’s Garden.
