Will you have extra flowers for the caterer?
I honestly can’t imagine there’s a florist alive who hasn’t been asked this question and I think this is an important conversation because there are different points of views on whether it’s “pushing too far” or “no big deal” when people ask for free “extra” flowers. Here’s a replay of a video that originally aired on flirtyfleurs.com with my tips on how to handle these requests!

It’s not always easy to say “no” to a client or fellow wedding vendor…especially when it seems like it should be “so easy to say yes”!
When customers ask if you can “throw in some extra flowers for the food tables”, the request may seem simple enough, but if you’re ordering based on what you need to fill your recipes, there’s a good chance you won’t have “that many extras”….so promising a “yes” to extras that you can’t guarantee can lead to disappointment.
You set the rules in your business! (And hopefully my template can help you out!)
