I did 3 and probably could have done more.  I think 3 is a good number!

I planned an out-of-state wedding, so first I did my narrowing down on the phone. I talked to 5, and ended up meeting up with 3 in person.

Only 1.  I wanted the exact same thing as a wedding I saw pictures of, found out who the florist was and went with them.  We got everything exactly as I wanted.  We were very happy.

I only did 1 because she came highly recommended by my venue and several other people in the area. She did an awesome job!!

I only met with one which is the florist we ended up with! Did lots of my research online because Im based overseas. In the end, i went with the one who worked best with my budget!

I met with one. I saw her work at a few Bridal Open Houses and fell in love with it. Her style and mine mesh extremely well. Plus, her quote came in under budget, and it included everything I could have wanted! So excited!

I did three, and felt like that was perfect. I enjoyed every appointment, I felt like I got a lot of free inspiration and advice.

I only met with one, and didn’t research at all. It’s a local florist that I’ve been to for things like prom bouts, and my mom has used them before too, so I knew I liked them, and they had a good price.

Just one. She’s the local florist and we’ve used her for pretty much everything; my sister’s wedding, proms, homecoming, church altar flowers, the works. It made no sense to go hunting when we already had that relationship built up, and we knew she did great work and has great prices. 🙂

I have some pretty specific things I want and they aren’t traditional… so I’m on number 3 starting this Thursday and I have my 4th scheduled the first week of October. Hopefully, one of those will work! Otherwise, I have a 5th and 6th picked out….Finding a reasonable florist has been a lot harder than I thought!
