Florist Consultation 101: What to Expect During Your Floral Consultation.

Wedding planning can be an overwhelming process for many brides and grooms. Making decisions about the special day can be extremely daunting as there is no doubt that you want the long awaited day to be perfect. Floral consultations are no different, but with the talented designers at Willow & Thistle to help guide you while making difficult design decisions we can ensure that you will be pleased with the final arrangements.

In order to make the process as easy as possible, during your consultation we will walk you through your wedding day step by step to go over the needs for floral arrangements, décor and rentals. (Did you know we do more than just flowers?)

Personal Flowers

Your bridal bouquet is likely something that you have dreamed of for a long time, and maybe even one of the first items on your Pinterest inspiration board. It’s possibly the item that sets the tone for the theme and colors of your dream wedding vision. This makes the bridal bouquet an appropriate first discussion in your floral consultation, followed closely by bridesmaid bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres.

Ceremony Décor

Whether you choose to add flowers to an existing pergola at your venue, or to start from scratch by renting one from our collection, Willow & Thistle will use floral arrangements to encompass the natural beauty of the structure. When decorating your ceremony space, you’ll want to keep in mind that this is the backdrop of where you'll say “I do!” This is a milestone that you will cherish forever through your wedding photos, so we want to ensure the beauty of the flowers provide the aesthetic you are envisioning.

Rental Décor

Willow & Thistle offers much more than just delicate flowers which makes for the ease of a one-stop-shop for all of your décor dreams. Rental items include loveseats, tablescapes, lights, lanterns, and so much more. Current wedding trends show a popular spike in the variety of lounge styles offered today. The uses of these lounges are endless. Some couples choose to use them for photo ops, a nice sitting area within your space, or even as the seating arrangement for their sweetheart table (pictured bellow under Reception Decor).

Reception Décor

Last by not least, we'll discuss your reception décor. This category includes a wide variety of options and decision-making, which can sometimes be overwhelming! But that's why we're here, and this is where your dream wedding day vision will truly come to life. It all stems back to the bridal bouquet; those colors and flowers will be incorporated throughout the entire wedding day and used in reception centerpieces, cocktail tables, and cake flowers. The decorating doesn’t stop there; options are also available for place card tables, seating charts, and even lighting.
