One of the most pinned items on Pinterest is wedding florals. When you start to plan your wedding, and look for florals, I am sure you will check out Pinterest for some inspiration. It can be overwhelming for sure and seeing photos you love may not fit in your budget! So, I interviewed Jacqueline Hites, Owner and Floral Designer of Blooming Hites in Roswell, Georgia for some important information regarding the wedding floral design process. I hope you find this helpful during your wedding planning process.

12-8 months before but this people postpone due to Covid I would say ASAP because a lot of dates will not be available do to couples wanting to postpone to 2021 or 2022.
