Choosing Your Florist

After that mishap with the bridal car provider, I would like to stress out further that one has to be careful in choosing suppliers. One of the things that I did before I booked suppliers was to read reviews about them, especially with the wedding gown designer (it's one of the most important things!). I also spent some time getting to know the suppliers who I only met during wedding expos.

Here's Lawrence dela Rosa of Angel of Hearts. We only managed to canvass for florists at the Themes & Motifs wedding expo last September. We choose Angel of Hearts because they owned the farm. Our wedding day was sandwiched in between holidays and we wanted fresh flowers, not flowers that had extended shelf lives because of the refrigerator.

Some tips from Lawrence about choosing a florist:

Aside from the flowers the husband and wife tandem also gave us advice about marriage.

  1. I had a problem choosing a florist for wedding because they quoted a very high price for limited flowers. So what I did is I got a flower arranger (someone we already know so we're confident he's good in what he do). Together with my brother, they went to Dangwa to buy flowers. Problem is hauling the flowers to the province and we didn't have materials such as flower stands, etc. But we manage. I spent almost the same amount as what the florists would charge but with more and better flowers.
