Vancouver Florists: Choosing A Florist In Vancouver

Updated on August 27, 2011

Florists in Vancouver

There are a lot of florists in Vancouver, some of them are excellent and some of them really aren't very good at all. Choosing a Vancouver florist can be a difficult task because there are so many options available. Your needs will determine what kind of florist you require, it's one thing to pick up flowers for the wife at the little shop down the street, but you really want that shop to provide the flowers for your wedding.

Anybody can sell flowers, most grocery stores sell flowers these days, and for a lot of people that's just fine. But for major events you are going to want a professional florist who can provide both there expertise in planning your event and deliver a quality product. For this you are going to need more than the little flower shop on the corner.

The first thing that you are going to want to do when selecting a Vancouver florist is ask your friends for referrals. Friends and coworkers who have recently had major events that use flowers like a wedding are an excellent source of information. Ask them who they used and if they were happy with the service that they got.

Once you have narrowed down the list you are going to want to visit the florists that you are considering. Take a look around their shop, are the flowers fresh and neatly arranged? This is a good sign of how serious the florist takes their business, no professional florist would ever allow a customer to see wilted flowers in their shop. You should also consider how the shop smells, it should smell like fresh flowers, their shouldn't be any rotten old flowers anywhere in the shop, if you smell them it is a warning sign.

In addition to making sure that the flowers are fresh you will want to look at the variety of flowers available. Most small florists in Vancouver operate small shops with just a few types of flowers like roses and carnations. This is fine for day to day stuff but for big events you are going to want somebody who can offer a wider range of flowers. A professional florist can offer a huge variety of exotic flowers which can make your event a lot more special.

You also want to make sure that the florist is a specialist, a lot of Vancouver florists are merely clerks with no real knowledge of flowers. For big events you need a florist who is an expert on both types of flowers and how to arrange them. They should be able to answer your questions and help you plan your event.

There are plenty of florists in Vancouver, or at least plenty of people selling flowers. There are far fewer Vancouver florists who are actually experts in their field. These are the people you need to seek out when you are planning a major event, they can provide you with their expertise and help make sure that you get the best possible flower arrangement.
