Queen City Florist Guide

Once you've decided upon a color palette and theme for the wedding, your next vendor stop will likely be the florist. A preliminary meeting is beneficial for discussing budget and any initial thoughts you have on specific blooms. The florist can also assist you in finding wallet-friendly alternatives with a similar look, should your dream bouquet be outside your budget. For your follow-up meeting, be sure you have a rough guest count, reception table count, and table dimensions. The florist can likely also provide votives, tealight candles and other accompanying decor for centerpieces. You should also make a decision on what you'd like for ceremony decor, cocktail tables and any additional tables you'll have in the reception space. But let's take a step back. First you have to find a florist. So here they are, all the Queen City florists for your choosing.
