When considering the optimal wedding florist booking timeline, it’s essential to plan ahead. It’s never too early to pencil it in if you have your heart set on a specific vendor. But usually, I would say 6-12 months from your date, but definitely after you have booked your date and venue – bringing us back to the topic.

Why Choose Flowers After Selecting Your Venue?

Choosing your flowers after selecting your venue is a practical approach that can help ensure a cohesive and harmonious aesthetic for your event, including the optimal wedding florist booking timeline

  1. Complementing the Venue: Every venue has its unique style, ambiance, and architectural features. By selecting your venue first, you’ll have a better understanding of its colors, decor, and overall atmosphere. This knowledge will enable you to choose flowers that complement the venue’s existing elements, rather than clash with them. Here is our comprehensive guide to event styling.
  2. Coordinating Colors: Venues often have specific color schemes, whether through their interior design (chairs, pictures, wall colors) or exterior surroundings (cladding, colors, materials). By knowing the venue’s colors in advance, you can select flowers that harmonize with the existing palette.
  3. Adapting to the Space: This is where working with an experienced professional is of utmost importance. Knowing what works best in the space, its size and layout, can impact the choice of floral arrangements. Being able to share insights into usual setups and timings, being able to show other couples’ weddings can help you visualize where you want flowers to be placed, whether it’s on tables, along walkways, or as focal points.
  4. Considering Seasonality: Flowers have seasons, and their availability can vary throughout the year. Once you have chosen your venue, you’ll have a better idea of the date and time of your event.
  5. Budget Optimization: Knowing your venue in advance allows you to allocate your budget more effectively. You can consider the venue’s existing decor and features, such as gardens, architectural elements, or scenic views, and determine where you need additional floral embellishments. By choosing your flowers based on the venue, you can prioritize and allocate your budget to areas that will have the most significant impact, achieving a beautiful aesthetic while staying within your budget.
