Retail florists are starting to see an uptick in their online sales after online retailers such as Amazon started allowing them to offer custom flowers.
But if you’re shopping for a flower ornaments, make sure you check the labels on the products before purchasing.
“It’s a really important step for me because I want to have something for my family,” said Sara McAllister, who works in marketing at a floral retailer.
“My husband and I have a special way of dressing our flowers and it’s a lot easier for us to go with flowers we already know.”
To find the right floral, it helps to have a lot of experience.
“The more you know about what flowers are going to work for your wedding, the more comfortable you will be,” McAllisters said.
“There are certain flowers that are more beautiful and certain flowers are not.
It’s all about getting the right balance of flowers and the right size.”

(CBC)Flowers are the most expensive item on the floral shopping list, but the best flowers can be found at prices that are much lower.
“Flowers can be really expensive if you have no experience with them,” said Stephanie Smith, who is based in Toronto and owns The Floral Store.
“If you have been to a flower shop or online, you might see that they charge more.
They might charge more for certain products or services.”
To avoid overpaying, be sure to look for the cheapest flowers you can.
“I really like to get things that are a little cheaper,” said Smith.
“But you don’t want to be buying a flower that’s going to cost you $30,000 or $40,000.”
Flowing bouquets are also very important to consider, as they can add a lot to the price of your flowers.
“When you’re planning your flowers, be mindful of how much you want them to grow,” said McAllis.
“Don’t go to the store and have a flower you can’t afford, especially if it’s on sale.
Be aware of the flower’s price tag and make sure it’s something that will be worth the money you’re paying.”
