Research​ ​Early

When​ ​selecting​ ​flower​ ​shops​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Washington,​ ​DC​ ​Metro​ ​Area,​ ​don’t​ ​procrastinate.​ ​ ​Take​ ​your​ ​time​ ​to​ ​research your​ ​options,​ ​call​ ​florists​ ​and​ ​ask​ ​questions​ ​to​ ​make​ ​sure​ ​you​ ​are​ ​hiring​ ​the​ ​right​ ​person.​ ​ ​Speak​ ​with​ ​the​ ​florist​ ​and  provide​ ​all​ ​details​ ​and​ ​requirements,​ ​so​ ​there​ ​are​ ​no​ ​misunderstandings.​ ​ ​Not​ ​only​ ​should​ ​a​ ​good​ ​florist​ ​be​ ​unique  and​ ​artistic​ ​with​ ​their​ ​designs,​ ​but​ ​have​ ​excellent​ ​customer​ ​service.​ ​ ​Customer​ ​relations​ ​is​ ​a​ ​critical​ ​aspect​ ​of​ ​the  floral​ ​industry.​ ​ ​A​ ​florist​ ​should​ ​be​ ​able​ ​to​ ​answer​ ​any​ ​questions​ ​you​ ​have​ ​and​ ​offer​ ​enough​ ​attention​ ​to​ ​your  concerns.​ ​ ​If​ ​you​ ​are​ ​uncertain​ ​about​ ​the​ ​selecting​ ​the​ ​right​ ​kind​ ​of​ ​flowers,​ ​your​ ​florist​ ​should​ ​be​ ​able​ ​to​ ​offer  several​ ​options​ ​to​ ​select​ ​from​ ​and​ ​ease​ ​your​ ​uncertainty.​ ​ ​However,​ ​you​ ​should​ ​not​ ​be​ ​the​ ​only​ ​one​ ​asking  questions;​ ​a​ ​good​ ​florist​ ​will​ ​ask​ ​questions​ ​to​ ​ensure​ ​they​ ​fully​ ​understand​ ​and​ ​address​ ​your​ ​flower​ ​needs.    If​ ​ordering​ ​flowers​ ​for​ ​a​ ​special​ ​event,​ ​remember​ ​the​ ​holidays​ ​that​ ​have​ ​a​ ​high​ ​demand​ ​for​ ​flowers.​ ​ ​The​ ​December  holidays,​ ​Valentine’s​ ​Day​ ​and​ ​Mother’s​ ​Day​ ​are​ ​high​ ​seasons​ ​for​ ​flowers.​ ​ ​Additionally,​ ​wedding​ ​season​ ​is​ ​May 


through​ ​October.​ ​ ​Floral​ ​serves​ ​are​ ​in​ ​high​ ​demand​ ​during​ ​these​ ​times,​ ​so​ ​don’t​ ​wait​ ​until​ ​the​ ​last​ ​minute​ ​to​ ​find​ ​a florist​ ​who​ ​can​ ​meet​ ​your​ ​needs.​   2.

Seek​ ​recommendations​ ​and​ ​read​ ​reviews

Seeking​ ​recommendations​ ​for​ ​a​ ​flower​ ​delivery​ ​service​ ​is​ ​essential​ ​in​ ​finding​ ​a​ ​reputable​ ​florist.​ ​ ​If​ ​you​ ​need​ ​flowers for​ ​a​ ​major​ ​occasion​ ​or​ ​special​ ​event,​ ​such​ ​as​ ​a​ ​wedding​ ​or​ ​corporate​ ​event,​ ​ask​ ​friends​ ​who​ ​were​ ​recently​ ​married  and/or​ ​who​ ​hosted​ ​a​ ​special​ ​event​ ​for​ ​their​ ​advice.  If​ ​you​ ​don’t​ ​have​ ​anyone​ ​you​ ​can​ ​ask​ ​for​ ​advice,​ ​search​ ​Yelp​ ​or  Google​ ​for florist​ ​in​ ​Washington,​ ​DC​ ​Metro​ ​Area​ ​and​ ​sort​ ​based​ ​on​ ​who​ ​has​ ​received​ ​the​ ​best​ ​ratings​ ​and​ ​reviews  from​ ​previous​ ​customers.  3.

Verify​ ​the​ ​florist's​ ​delivery​ ​area

Make​ ​sure​ ​that​ ​your​ ​florist​ ​services​ ​the​ ​Washington,​ ​DC​ ​Metro​ ​Area.​ ​Be​ ​sure​ ​to​ ​stress​ ​the​ ​need​ ​for​ ​prompt​ ​delivery service.​ ​ ​You​ ​want​ ​to​ ​know​ ​the​ ​florist​ ​will​ ​deliver​ ​the​ ​arrangements​ ​on​ ​time​ ​and​ ​at​ ​the​ ​right​ ​location.  4.

Visit​ ​the​ ​shop​ ​for​ ​a​ ​consultation

When​ ​planning​ ​a​ ​wedding​ ​or​ ​special​ ​event,​ ​visit​ ​the​ ​florist​ ​for​ ​a​ ​consultation.​ ​ ​Most​ ​florists​ ​offer​ ​free​ ​personalized consultation​ ​service.​ ​When​ ​booking​ ​a​ ​wedding​ ​or​ ​a​ ​large​ ​event,​ ​call​ ​ahead​ ​for​ ​an​ ​appointment.​ ​ ​If​ ​you​ ​feel​ ​rushed​ ​or  pressured​ ​by​ ​the​ ​salesperson,​ ​think​ ​twice​ ​about​ ​working​ ​with​ ​that​ ​shop.​ ​ ​Florists​ ​often​ ​have​ ​several​ ​arrangements  on​ ​display​ ​and​ ​should​ ​have​ ​a​ ​photo​ ​album​ ​displaying​ ​work​ ​performed​ ​by​ ​their​ ​designers.   5.

Discuss​ ​your​ ​budget

Inquire​ ​about​ ​a​ ​florist's​ ​price​ ​range​ ​for​ ​the​ ​type​ ​of​ ​flowers​ ​or​ ​arrangements​ ​that​ ​you​ ​plan​ ​to​ ​order.​ ​If​ ​the​ ​price​ ​seems high,​ ​ask​ ​about​ ​lower-priced​ ​alternatives​ ​that​ ​would​ ​complement​ ​the​ ​overall​ ​theme​ ​or​ ​look.    For​ ​weddings​ ​or​ ​special​ ​events,​ ​ensure​ ​that​ ​you​ ​inquire​ ​about​ ​the​ ​deposit​ ​and​ ​payment​ ​process.​ ​More​ ​than​ ​likely,  the​ ​florist​ ​will​ ​initially​ ​require​ ​a​ ​non-refundable​ ​deposit​ ​and​ ​pay​ ​the​ ​remaining​ ​balance​ ​a​ ​couple​ ​weeks​ ​prior​ ​to​ ​the  event​ ​date.​ ​ ​Make​ ​sure​ ​that​ ​you​ ​review​ ​the​ ​contract​ ​for​ ​additional​ ​terms​ ​and​ ​conditions.​ ​ ​As​ ​with​ ​any​ ​payment,  always​ ​get​ ​a​ ​receipt.  Again,​ ​when​ ​selecting​ ​a​ ​flower​ ​delivery​ ​service​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Washington,​ ​DC​ ​Metro​ ​Area,​ ​your​ ​florist​ ​should​ ​be​ ​someone  who​ ​provides​ ​more​ ​than​ ​just​ ​flowers.​ ​ ​They​ ​should​ ​help​ ​you​ ​transform​ ​the​ ​atmosphere​ ​of​ ​any​ ​room​ ​with​ ​their​ ​floral  designs.​ ​Putting​ ​these​ ​few​ ​tips​ ​to​ ​use​ ​should​ ​help​ ​you​ ​find​ ​a​ ​trusted​ ​florist,​ ​one​ ​in​ ​which​ ​you​ ​can​ ​build​ ​a​ ​continued  relationship​ ​with.
