When people divide up wedding “to-do” tasks, finding and talking to the florist doesn’t usually wind up on the groom’s side of the aisle.

But, there are two big reasons you should at least visit the florist with your fiancée.

1. Allergies – You may not think you’re allergic to anything, but you’ve probably never had a lilly pinned to your chest before. You, and your groomsmen will all be wearing boutonnieres (don’t worry, there’s no spelling test). You need to make sure that you aren’t allergic to any of the flowers going on you, in your bride’s bouquet, or in the middle of the table where you’re trying to eat.

2. Budget- Flowers are usually about 10% of your wedding budget. Because they’re so visual, and each individual flower doesn’t cost very much, it’s very easy to get carried away at the florists. Having two of you there will keep things in line.

That’s our advice. Ignore it at your own floral peril.
