Up to this point you’ve been excited, you’ve had some ideas, you’ve got a few things sorted. But it just got real. The year of your wedding is upon us! Time to get to work!

What you need to know about booking your 2017 wedding floral consultation with Flowers Talk Tivoli:

  1. Find your style. Picking your flowers can be hard; there are so many styles, colours and themes to choose from. How do you know the right one for you? First step: Get thee a Pinterest board (or other image saving app). It really helps to distill the things you sort of like down to the things you need to have. The best way to see what you like is to see whats available; start by searching for your favourite or chosen wedding colours and try looking up different flower names. Bear in mind some flowers are seasonal and may not be available when you wed. If in doubt save it and we can let you know if it’s available and what similar substitutes exist if not. Of course we also recommend visiting our website albums and facebook feed to see the work we put out everyday.

  2. Once you have an idea of things you like/things you don’t it’s time to see us. Call or email the store to book your complimentary wedding consultation. We take those foggy ideas you have and turn them into a vision of your perfect bouquet. Don’t worry if you haven’t narrowed things down a lot; often even with seemingly different styles or colour schemes we can pick up a common thread to tie everything together. We recommend¬†a meeting about 2-6 months in advance of your wedding. We’ve done them sooner and later, but 2-6 is a good buffer for sorting any changes or tweaking needed without rushing.

  3. Consultations typically take 45 minutes to an hour. You get one-on-one time with one our top designers to get personalized help to fine-tune that vision and help you stay within your budget. We recommend you bring your pictures, swatches, pieces from your stationary suite if you have one; anything to help us bring together the perfect bouquet.
