3 Best Questions to Ask a Baker (From a Florist’s Perspective)

Hello all! Kathryn the flower farming, florist here!

I have seen time and time again gals want to hear my recommendations for bakers after they book our services. Well, today I wanted to chat about the 3 best questions to ask a baker (from a florist’s perspective).

  1. Will you add the flowers or shall my florist? When you book my services, I offer free flowers for your cake (wink wink). I like to offer that as a free gift for my couples. That being said, sometimes bakers prefer to put the flowers on the cake themselves. I totally understand, but this is a good question to ask.
  2. What flowers will you use or not use? Some flowers are poisonous (of course, I would never give you a poisonous flower) but if a baker knows the flowers that are not safe to eat… that means they care about the floral element. If they do not know, I am happy to educate them, but that is one good question to ask.
  3. Do you know of any florists? One of my favorite questions. Do they know any wedding florists? Can they name them, by name? Do they have a personal relationship with them? If they know some florists, their credibility is added. If they cannot – maybe they are forgetful or maybe they do not care enough to learn the names of other florists? IDK, just a thought.

Hopefully you ask other questions to vent your caterer options, but here are a few from the floral perspective.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
