I went to my first floral consultation this week with my top florist pick. I showed her pictures of what I like and referenced a wedding from her website. She sent a quote that night. I would like to ask her to email pictures of similar arrangements in the prices that she quoted me. Did anyone do this? Does this seem too high maintenance? I guess I just want to make sure that if we go with her and put a deposit down, that her vision is what I’m thinking, too i.e. if we are spending $200 on a bouquet, what is the approximate size of it (same for centerpieces and altar arrangements)?

I didn’t do that but that sounds like a great idea. It doesn’t seem like a huge thing to ask at all. I might do that now with the last one I met with.

I asked when we went for the consult. She showed with her hands and pulled some samples out of the fridge to show arrangement size.

I ask for samples or pictures every time I am dealing with a florist- just to make sure that we are on the same wave length.

Our florist quote listed exactly what was included, including approximate size, so I don’t think what you are asking for is out of line at all.

Thank you all for the reassurances. I emailed her earlier and am looking forward to seeing her reply w/ photos.

nope, you should get a confirmation that you understand each other. It can be a sketch with description, photos of similar arrangements or mock up. Either way you should be able to trust your florist and really make sure that she/he knows what is important to you.
