Staten Island or the Bronx — Mahir Floral events can fulfill your dreams. Call (212) 686-1999 to schedule a consultation with the best florist in the city.
Settling on a Floral Theme
It’s essential to establish an overall floral style for your NYC ceremony. The theme might be spring flowers, autumnal arrangements, color-coordinated flowers, or bright daisies in summer. Flowers are generally the heart of your ceremony and reception, and you can choose those that create a romantic, modern, rustic, or whimsical atmosphere.
Some florists prefer large, ornate centerpieces, while others prefer taking a minimalist approach. Some florists select to use native wildflowers from the Bronx, Staten Island, Brooklyn, and Queen’s gardening activities. Choosing the wrong merchant can put you at continual cross-purposes, so it’s essential to find out the florist’s style. At Mahir Floral, we specialize in taking a businesslike approach to making your dream wedding in NYC take place without a hitch.
Determine Your Floral Needs
Some brides prefer a turnkey florist to design a unique look for their reception aisle, floral bouquets, and reception tables. Others prefer to choose all the details on their own. Many prefer to hire professional event planners and designers. Mahir Floral works with all three types, doing as little or as much of the design work as wanted.
Schedule an Interview
Once you determine your ceremonies essential vision, it’s time to schedule an interview to discuss your dream wedding. Are you a minimalist, or do you want flowers that remind you of gardening? Remember that we can’t read your mind, so it’s helpful to jot down what you want, preferred colors, and any questions you may have. Including the wedding planner in the discussion is also useful. We recommend connecting in person to view our portfolio and a better feel for whether we hit it off or not.
We’ll be happy to discuss business issues like your floral budget, and we can take a more hands-on approach if you prefer. You should bring any fabric samples, inspiration boards, and photos of your wedding gown, if available. If you need to match a particular art at your wedding venue, bring pictures of the art. The more information you can provide, the better our planning and cost estimates will be.
At Mahir Floral, we can help you flesh out your floral vision, and our team of reliable and trusted wedding experts can guide finances. Most couples spend an average of $2,200 for their ceremonies, but NYC is pricier than average. We’ll help you get the look you want within your floral budget. We recommend planning your flower-related services between 3 to 6 months of your event.
