Choosing a florist
Finding the right flower arrangement for your event can be a hassle if you're not an expert. Hiring a florist can make all the difference!
Most florists are able to design an entire look for a wedding or event, organize and send gift baskets and balloons and even serve as a social adviser when you're not sure what your occasion calls for.
To find a florist who is right for your needs, browse our listings on Kudzu.com for florists in your area. Also, take a look at their individual websites, where you can view their work and get an idea for the types of events with which they are most familiar.
Some florists are "Jacks of all trades" and can carry off a wedding and a corporate event with equal panache, while others specialize in one type of service.
For funerals, check with your funeral home (Find a funeral service on Kudzu.com). In many instances, the funeral home will provide all floral arrangements as a package. And if you're a well-wisher who wants to send floral arrangements, see if the family or the deceased has expressed a preference for donations to a charity or had requested no flowers.
Also, be aware that funeral protocol may differ, depending on religious observances. Jewish funerals, for example, don't usually have flowers at all, and Mormons do not prefer flower arrangements in the shape of a cross.
Once you choose a florist, meet with him or her in person for a consultation. At the meeting, follow these guidelines:
