Your Wedding Flower Questions Answered

Choosing the right wedding florist is an important decision, and I totally understand that you might have lots of questions.

Below are the things I most regularly get asked, but if you find that your question isn’t answered here, I’m always available on email at: enquiries@brideandbloom.co

What does it mean to work only with seasonal flowers?2023-10-03T12:43:21+00:00

Seasonality in floristry means letting the time of year dictate the flowers that are available to you, rather than choosing to import or fly in more ‘exotic’ or out of season varietals at a time of year they wouldn’t naturally be grown in the UK.


How much should we budget for our wedding flowers?2023-10-03T12:42:05+00:00

This is a great question, but it’s one that’s tricky for me to answer as every wedding’s budget and requirements are unique. For my Bespoke Design Service, I have a minimum spend of £2000, but couples frequently spend more than this, with the ‘sweet spot’ being around the £3,500 mark.

I absolutely understand that not everyone has this sort of budget in mind, and I’ve created my Curated Floral Design service for smaller weddings, or weddings on a smaller budget.

How far in advance should we book you?2023-08-01T06:01:09+00:00

I absolutely hate turning lovely couples away, and I do tend to get booked up a fair way in advance (often 9-12 months and sometimes longer). If you like my style and you think you’d like me to be your florist then I’d recommend getting in touch as soon as possible after you’ve set a date and chosen your venue. This is particularly the case if you’re thinking of my Bespoke Floral Design service, which tends to be more in-depth and involve more elaborate designs and installations.


How do I find out what’s in season for my wedding date?2023-10-03T12:42:58+00:00

You can browse my wedding gallery, which is split by season to get an idea of what’s available when OR head on over to my Pinterest account where you can find dedicated boards for each season. Don’t worry – we’ll have a good old chat about all your options during our consultation call, and I’ll make sure you have a really good idea of the season’s star players and more unusual little gems as well.


Do you ever import your flowers from abroad?2023-10-03T12:41:34+00:00

No, I work with 100% British flowers, using growers and flower farmers local to me in Worcester wherever I can. This means my work (and your wedding) is more planet friendly, and the flowers we use will be at their beautiful best.


I’m having a very small wedding and only looking for bouquets and buttonholes, but I love your style. Can you help?2023-10-03T12:41:07+00:00

Yes! The Curated Floral Design service allows you to select from a range of floral elements that you need, specify your colour palette, and let me do the rest. One of the packages I’ve put together here focuses on bouquets and buttonholes and is perfect for micro weddings and elopements.

I’ve seen some flowers I love on Pinterest, can you recreate them for me?2023-08-01T05:50:31+00:00

Pinterest is a great way to gather inspiration and figure out what you do and don’t like, and I always recommend my couples create boards to start zoning in on the colours and textures and general feel of the flowers you love. The actual designs will be unique to you and your wedding though, just as it should be – that’s part of the joy of being completely seasonally focused. We let the flowers themselves lead the way!


How do I hold my bouquet?2023-08-01T06:02:33+00:00

Oh I get asked this a lot and love this question – it can suddenly feel like you’re not sure what to do with your hands when they’re full of lovely flowers! Whether you’re using my bespoke or package option I can show you how to hold your bouquet on the morning of the wedding or via a Zoom call.
