The Twin Cities are home to some of the best florists. This blog will tell you why you should use one vs. DIY, will share some helpful tips and will link to some of my favorite floral companies!

First, I know some of you out there are reading this and thinking, “Do I reeeeeally need to spend money on flowers when I can make them myself?”

It’s Usually a Good Idea to Hire a Professional Florist

While it may be tempting to save money by making your own bouquet, there are several reasons why hiring a professional florist is a better choice.

First, a florist has the expertise and knowledge to create a beautiful and cohesive bouquet that complements your wedding dress and overall theme. They also have access to a wider variety of flowers and can ensure that they are of the highest quality. Additionally, a florist can handle all of the logistics, including sourcing the flowers, arranging them, and delivering them to the wedding venue. This saves you time and stress on your special day.

Finally, hiring a professional florist ensures that everything goes smoothly and that your bouquet looks stunning in all of your wedding photos. By investing in a professional florist, you can rest assured that your bouquet will be a beautiful and memorable part of your wedding day.

To Splurge for a Floral Installation or Not?

Floral installations are a stunning and unique way to add a touch of elegance and beauty to your wedding decor.

While they may require a larger investment than traditional floral arrangements, they are well worth the expense for several reasons. First, floral installations make a bold statement and create a memorable focal point that guests will remember long after the wedding is over. Next, they make for epic photo opportunities! They also add a sense of drama and grandeur to the overall decor, setting the tone for a truly special and unforgettable event. Additionally, floral installations can be customized to fit the theme and style of your wedding, from boho and natural to modern and chic. Finally, they offer endless possibilities for creativity and personalization. This allows you to create a one-of-a-kind atmosphere that truly reflects your unique style and vision. By investing in floral installations for your wedding, you can create a breathtaking setting that will leave a lasting impression on everyone who attends.

Tips for Choosing a Florist

  1. Ask for recommendations from friends and family
  2. Check out their reviews online (Google, Yelp etc.)
  3. Ask if they can do custom designs or if they have some sort of signature style
  4. If you’re not sure what kind of flowers you want, ask the florist to help steer you in the right direction

Things to Avoid When Choosing Your Wedding Flowers

When selecting wedding flowers, there are a few things to watch out for to ensure that you get the best quality and value for your money. First, be aware of the seasonality of flowers, as some types may be more expensive or harder to find depending on the time of year. Also, be sure to communicate your budget with your florist to avoid any surprises or unexpected costs.

It’s also important to consider the venue and overall theme of the wedding to ensure that the flowers complement the overall aesthetic.

Lastly, be aware of any potential for dyed flowers or pollen to bleed off on your dress (I’ve actually seen this one happen a few times – YIKES!) and the flower’s tolerance to heat or cold.

By keeping these factors in mind, you can select the perfect wedding flowers that will enhance the beauty and ambiance of your special day.


So, you’re looking for a florist. You’ve read this blog post and now you know which ones are the best in the Twin Cities. But how do you know which one is right for you?

Make sure the florist you’re choosing has a style that’s in line with the style you envision for your wedding. If you’re throwing a colorful “festival” themed wedding, choosing a florist who specializes in all white bleached bouquets probably isn’t going to be the best fit.

After you’ve found a florist or two whose style you love, be sure to read reviews, ask family and friends and read through the companies values and mission statement on their site, then send an inquiry!

Now that you have the flowers, let’s tackle finding the perfect non-traditional elopement dress!
