I wouldn’t lead anyone on by saying “make me a trial centerpiece and bridal bouquet using ___ , ____ and ___” but I would def. meet with two or three and ask to see pictures on their work or see the arrangements that they may have on hand at their shops. They don’t have to spend the time and money to make you something you aren’t going to use, but you still need to see what they can do.

I like this article from offbeat bride: “How to not get screwed by your florist” http://offbeatbride.com/2009/03/wedding-flowers

I think that most florists do the trials.  It’s part of the business cost.  If you feel bad, just offer to pay for the trial bouquet.  It shouldn’t be a problem.  They know clients are shopping around.

I am not familiar with florists offering trials before a deposit is given, but if they do it for you without, go for it.
