To better help him/her meet your needs create an idea file of different arrangements and flowers you like. Also have a list ready of everyone who will be requiring flowers for the wedding. This list should include such people as attendants, groomsmen, parents, etc.
In the planning section of this magazine, you can write-in floral estimates, and plan for the individual flower elements such as corsages and boutonnieres. When choosing your flowers there are several things to consider:
