5 Questions To Ask Your Florist Before Reserving Them

Finding and choosing the right florist for your wedding has to be one of the most fun parts of getting married. But you want to make sure you get exactly what you want and that all your expectations will be met on your big day. We caught up with Benjamin Newbold, Creative Director of Events and Floral Design for Winston Flowers in Boston, Massachusetts, to get a script on the 5 questions a bride should ask before signing on the dotted line to confirm.

QUESTION 1: What styles are you most comfortable working with? All florists have different styles. It’s important to find a florist who shares your same vision and style—and is able to translate your specific vision into reality. 

QUESTION 2: What flowers are in season at the time of the wedding? If you’re set on having a particular flower play a major role in your wedding, you may want to consider the availability of the season before choosing your wedding date. For example, peonies blossom in May and June, so having a wedding in December that calls for hundreds of peonies may not be feasible.

QUESTION 3: Can I get what I want for this _____ price? It’s important to see a proposal before reserving the florist for your big day. This will help you avoid any surprises or failed expectations—and will lead to a creative process where you and your florist can discuss your vision and how it can be successfully achieved within your budget.

QUESTION 4: What other details can you facilitate? (i.e. linens, specialty rentals, lighting, etc.) Finding a florist who is equipped with a full-service events team can make your life much easier! Having as many details facilitated under one roof means less meetings and stress, as well as a more cohesive design. Your florist will help you select linens and rentals that will complement your florals.

QUESTION 5: Can you provide staff and delivery for non-local weddings? Whether you’re having a destination wedding or not, it’s important to know what services will be provided day of. Who will deliver the flowers? Who will be there from the floral team to oversee installations and table décor? Find out what can be expected from the services-side so there are no unexpected surprises.

BONUS QUESTION (to ask yourself): Will I enjoy working with this designer for the next few months? Is this something you feel comfortable approaching with unforeseen questions or concerns? Communication and honesty are key during the months leading up to your wedding—make sure you’re working with an approachable and transparent team!

Name: The Langham Hotel

Location: Boston, Massachusetts

Tell us a little bit about the history of the space as a wedding venue. When did it open and how has it evolved over the years? One of the finest hotels in the city, The Langham, Boston combines its rich history with everything you would expect of a modern luxury hotel. Once the Federal Reserve Bank, the building is a national architectural landmark. With an ideal downtown location, the granite and limestone architectural gem opened as a luxury hotel in 1981. Much of the structure’s original detail remains. The Langham, Boston overlooks Norman B. Leventhal Park at Post Office Square, and nearly one-third of its guest rooms offer dramatic views of the Boston skyline.

Can you give us a brief overview of the venue? What are the options for a bride planning her wedding there?  The Langham, Boston has a variety of spaces that can accommodate intimate celebrations or grand affairs. The sense of history within the building, impeccable culinary options and personalized service are the key factors in why couples choose to get married here. Our historic Wilson Ballroom and lovely, open Esplanade overlook Post Office Square, which creates the perfect backdrop for an authentic Boston wedding.

What is your busy season? Our busiest months for weddings are May, June, August, September, and October, however we host events year-round.

In addition to weddings, what other events is the space available for? The hotel is available for any number of other events including rehearsal dinners, bridal and baby showers, private brunches, bar/bat mitzvahs, holiday parties, anniversary celebrations, birthday parties, family reunions, corporate meetings/incentive trips and galas.

Is there a favorite event that you’ve hosted? We have hosted so many beautiful weddings here that it’s hard to choose one of them! A recent event that stands out was the James Beard Foundation’s Taste America: Boston event in October 2015. We hosted some of the nation’s best chefs including Barbara Lynch and Lydia Shire and help to raise a significant amount of money for the organization.

What makes the space so special–especially as a destination for getting married? The connection to Boston’s history as the original Federal Reserve Bank, and the design and service elements that that legacy provides make us unique in the Boston market. Additionally, the central location in Downtown Boston means that most of the city is easily accessible.

Do you have any advice or recommendations for brides that may be considering the venue?
We recommend scheduling a tour by reaching out to samantha.rivera [at] langhamhotels [dot] com. It’s important to see the venue in person and experience our innovative hospitality. The convenience of hosting your ceremony and reception at The Langham, Boston also gives you the comfort of having everything under one roof, so we recommend considering the weekend beyond just the ceremony and reception.

What is the mission or business motto that the Langham Hotel functions under? How did it get it’s name? The Langham Boston’s mission is that “Building great memories is what we bank on” as we emphasize creating a memorable experience for all of our guests. Langham has a legendary hotel heritage dating back to 1865 when The Langham, London originally opened as Europe’s first Grand Hotel. For over 150 years, this flagship hotel has been at the forefront of sophisticated and gracious hospitality.

How far in advance should you put in a request to secure a date? We recommend booking your wedding a year in advance to ensure that you are able to secure your first choice of date, however one of the advantages of a hotel is that we can accommodate weddings that are booked closer in advance.
