You won’t understand how appreciative brides are of their florists until you’re on the receiving end of a plethora of thank you for the bridal bouquet that these professionals can create. Becoming a wedding florist is one of the most rewarding and tedious professions a person can engage in. It may seem like just a job at first, but when you see how happy your work can make other people, especially with the bridal bouquets that you create, you’ll understand that it’s more than just a job.
Floral arrangements, from bouquets to creating a wedding centerpiece, can certainly spruce up an event, with the wide array of colors and shapes that flowers can come in, not to mention the wonderful scents that can fill up a room. However, putting together a floral arrangement is more than just having a good eye for detail. There are some very personal traits that separate the ordinary from the extraordinary.
A wedding florist shouldn’t be afraid to break the rules. There are always the safe choices to go with when it comes to creating bridal bouquets: calla lilies, roses, stephanotis, et cetera. But being safe means; you won’t make a wedding centerpiece or corsage that pops. Brides want something different in their weddings that set them apart from the rest, and one of the ways to do that is with their bridal bouquets. Being daring and putting together an arrangement of flowers that is not only memorable, but will be remembered for years to come is certainly one of the best ways to stretch your fingers and raise the ante for other bridal florists everywhere.
A great wedding florist also respects the art of floral decoration. The job entails more than simply creating an arrangement. Rather, a successful wedding florist seeks to create a work of art from the flowers that are laid out before him. It requires paying attention to the shape, size, color and meaning of each flower that is used in order to create a cohesive piece that is quite pleasing to the eye, no matter who the beholder is.
Lastly, the wedding florist that will continue to have a steady stream of customers is one who gets to know the needs and interests of their client. Bridal bouquets are a very personal item, and it’s key that the florist pays attention to the personality of the bride to be and question what she does and doesn’t like in order create something beautiful and meaningful. Oftentimes, a bride may not even know what she wants, and it is the job of the wedding florist to help steer her in the right direction to create something together that she’ll love and appreciate.
