101 Days of Wedding Planning: Day 57: Confirm, with your florist, the number of bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces needed.
Earlier on you would have booked your florist, if needed, and given them an outline of the floral needs for your wedding. (Side Note: here are the 11 floral details we discussed in a previous post.)
However, there are 3 reasons why you may have to adjust the floral order from your wedding florist:
1. The number of your wedding attendants has changed.
You would hate to have this happen because I'm sure all of the wedding attendants you selected are special to you. However, many issues can come up between now and the time you asked your wedding attendants. One or more of them may drop out of your wedding party or you may have to exclude one or two (we won't judge). This changes the number of bouquets and boutonnieres you will need.
2. You've received most or all of your wedding RSVP's.
Not everyone may be able to attend your wedding. If most or all of your RSVPs have come in, you have a better estimate of the number of centerpieces needed from your florist.
3. Budget changes.
If your budget is getting tighter and you need to make some cuts, you may decide to reduce some of your floral details. For example, centerpieces on tables not for dining, or entryway and aisle flowers.
Did we miss any other reasons why you'd need to adjust your floral order?
