When discussing floral arrangements, be prepared to provide answers to questions such as the number of bridesmaids and groomsmen who will be there, what your dress looks like, how big is the venue, etc. Ideally, you should know your wedding inside and out for your florist to help you find flowers perfect for your unique wedding. Bringing pictures, idea books, and dress swatches will help even more.
