If you are planning to learn flower arrangement so that you will offer wedding floral decorating services, you should be aware that it is a tough and busy operation. In what kind of sense do you think it is tough ? There are several reasons why it is considered tough as mentioned below:
*High end skills required: Unlike a regular kind of floral arrangement, wedding decorations need high end arrangements which are much more difficult to make. Namely for decorating weddings, there are lots of floral arrangements which are seldom found in usual occasions. Concretely speaking, designs such as corsage, boutonniere, pomander (kissing ball), arch designs, chair arrangements, cake decoration and garland etc. have different nature of decorations that are difficult to be made without special knowledge and techniques. Some customers make detailed request about the choice of flowers, flower colors as well as the shape of arrangement whatsoever, that often makes it difficult to do the project.
*Price negotiation: Usually couples (who are getting married) have lots of time until their wedding is actually held. Namely unlike funeral floral decorations, wedding ceremony and party are always scheduled beforehand. Therefore there is lots of time available before the wedding is held. They start shopping around to look for vendors who can offer attractive services in terms of decoration and prices.
Suppose a couple is scheduled to hold a wedding ceremony on July 2nd and they begin to look for a suitable floral decorator on April 2nd. It is still 3 months to go. This means they have lots of time for price negotiation. During this 3 month period of time, they usually spend time for shopping around to look for the florist (or floral designers) that can offer better services at better prices. So many vendors often face difficult time for price negotiations.
*Busy and pressed for time: Since flowers can keep freshness only for a limited period of time, flower arrangements cannot be made much earlier than the day of wedding. The fresher the flower materials are, the more beautiful floral arrangements look. Due to this reason wedding flower arrangements are usually prepared on the day before wedding (and also on the wedding day as well). Within a limited time, they have to prepare and make lots of arrangements. Furthermore, actual setting of wedding floral decoration at a wedding place can be made only on the day of wedding (because there are many other couples who get married at the same place).
In spite of above mentioned difficulties, the business of wedding floral decoration is considered quite attractive in a sense because the absolute amount of business per customer is much higher than regular business of just selling cut flowers at a floral shop, which will bring higher amount of revenue and profit as well. No matter what kind of business they engage in, profitable business usually requires a hard work. The business of wedding floral decorating service is not exceptional.
