I am getting married in may and have already met witht he florist to plan everything out…. however once I did I realized that I could have waited.  Unless you are “shopping around” then your florist won’t need more time that a month to pull it together….plus that gives you time to change you mind a couple more times 🙂

I think my florist said she needs to have my final floral decision 30 days before the wedding so she can place orders but she could be giving herself extra leeway. If your florist isn’t concerned about the timing I wouldn’t worry about it.

@LoriKay628: Meet with the florist earlier if it is going to make you nervous. I am also the bride who met with my florist a year out from the wedding for the first time. lol We just met for the final floral centerpiece mock up a few days ago ( four months out from the wedding). We ended up changing our flowers (FI likes orchids in vase under water I like floral centerpieces) so we compromised and did both, but this caused a change in budget! It doesn’t hurt to get everything done earlier.
