|How far in advance should I contact the florist when ordering wedding flowers?|
Flowers are one of the most important aspects of your wedding day. They set the mood and tone for the event and will be remembered for years to come.
Many florists can accept only a set number of weddings on a given day, so it is important to contact your florist well in advance to begin planning. A good rule of thumb is to contact your florist at least three months in advance.
However, if your wedding is going to be an exceptionally elaborate event, take place during peak wedding season or fall on a holiday, then six months to a year is not too soon to contact your florist. This will allow the florist to begin looking for any props or specialty items you might need.
Wedding flowers can be highly specific and colors often have to be very precise, so florists need advance notice to place flower orders.
