basically every flower is in season in June. Perhaps google some inpiration picture of bouquets you like and bring them with you. the florist can help you switch out flowers for other flowers that are less expensive if the bouquet you like is too expensive.

I’m not Canadian, but if flower and florist prices are at all similar between the US and Canada, your budget is definitely practical.  I found a great florist that worked amazingly well with me price-wise and for my bouquet and my 4 bridesmaids it comes to $285.  I’m paying quite a bit more than that though for boutenniers, corsages, centerpieces, etc but from what I gathered after meeting with 5 different florists is that they’re very willing to work with any budget.  For example, my florist cut out calla lilies for me since they’re more on the expensive side and I didn’t care whether I had them or not.  I’m sure you’ll love what you work out!

Iit sounds like you’re set for an initial consult. Like Stargurl101 said take inspiration pictures of bouquets that you like to give your florist an idea of what you’re looking for. Having your colors picked out and your budget set ahead of time will make your meeting productive.

Your budget should work adequately, particularly since you’ve already checked in with the florist on that. June is a wonderful month in which to get married with so much easily available. Yo don’t need to be the expert on flowers….let the florist lead you through a discussion of colors and flowers. It would be helpful if you take a look online or in magazines and show those images to the florist. it’s the florists job to help you figure out the flowers and colors and designs that will be perfect for your wedding. Good luck, and have fun!

Great to hear! your approach was the perfect one…finding a great florist you can trust and having them work with your ideas and budget. And, yes, it’s a fun process…or should be! 🙂

Go on to Pinterest and pin the bouquets you like and take them with you to your florist, if you show them your inspiration and your colours and time of year they can tell you what flowers are available. Don’t be afraid to ask the florist ahead of questions and trust their judgment it is their  profession they are the experts and do this all the time. Good luck 🙂
