Hi has anyone chosen flower or did the florist give ideas, which I'm all for my dad passed away 5 years ago, and I would like flowers he liked in my bouquet , not sure what to do ?

Sorry your dad passed away, i think thats a lovely idea. My florist loves ideas from brides. She always finds it easier if you know the type of flower you would like to include, then she helps by putting other ideas to you if your unsure. Have you looked on pintrest? I got alot of my ideas from there. Good luck x

I've only had consultations with florists so far but they seem as though they like input from brides about what they want and the types of flowers to include. That sounds like a really lovely idea to honour your dad too.

My florist said it's nice to have photos of ideas to get a good idea of what the couple wants. I'm keen to include roses as part of mine as they remind me of both my Grandpa and Grandad. If you have a specific flower that is special to you then just let them know. If it's out of season then they will advise that they may be more expensive as they have to get them from abroad.

You can choose what you want as I don't really like roses so I've asked for certain flowers that I like and asked the florist for some suggestions and between us I've got great table decorations, button holes, corsages and bouquet for a fraction of the price
