Flowers are one of the surest ways to brighten up and elevate the decor in any event and a florist who understands what you need is crucial to your party’s success. But it can be confusing to find the right florist, particularly if you live in a large city like Chicago where there’s an abundance of them. To make the selection simpler, here’s our little guide on choosing the best Chicago-based florist to handle all of your floral needs.
What You Should Look For
1. Word of Mouth
Ask your friends for referrals to florists that they have used and liked. Satisfied clients will always be happy to recommend a business that has impressed them. Do keep an open mind because what works for one may not work for you.
2. Reputation and Value
A trusted florist will have a long list of satisfied customers and a history of outstanding service. Go with one that has built a reputation based on reliability and professionalism.
Years in service can hone a business’s knowledge of a craft to the point of mastery. While there are new floral shops that can provide superb arrangements, an established floral business will typically provide more creative insight based on years of experience.
Images that are posted on a floral shop’s websites are chosen for their artistry and beauty. No business will post pictures that are less than satisfactory. To get an indication of the level of workmanship they offer, it’s always best to ask for the shop’s portfolio of past work.
5. Customer Service
It’s understandable that you may have a lot of questions or concerns about your floral order. It’s always best to go with a florist who is approachable and consistently responsive to all of your needs.
Your florist may have some excellent ideas about the overall look of your floral order, but so can you. Look for someone who is flexible enough to work with your ideas and can accept a little compromise.
