While being honest with wedding florists about what you want is essential, you’ve got to take into account that they’ve seen their fair share of bridezillas. Wedding florists would much prefer to deal with someone who is level-headed and knows what they want without trying to beat anyone over the head with it. With that in mind, here are some things that should never come out of your mouth when you’re looking for a florist.

1. “I Really Like These, but My Budget is too Small.”

This is akin to telling a realtor that you really like that mansion, but can only afford a shed. Wedding florists aren’t there to get you everything you want, unless you can pay for it. Stick to telling prospective wedding florists what your budget is and go from there.
