How a Wedding Florist in Sydney Can Help You

You already have so much to keep track of for your wedding planning, especially if you do everything yourself. Let us help you and take one burden off your shoulders by taking care of the flower arrangements and delivery.

In the chaos of it all, it can be easy to forget all venues and aspects of the wedding - the chapel, reception, photos, wedding parties, and more. Flowers feature in many more areas than you may know, but here are some options of where you can incorporate flowers into your wedding day:

  • Bridal bouquet flowers. You can experiment with your bouquet to make it exactly what you want. For example, adding greenery to your bouquet can give it a classic look, especially if you opt for a more natural theme. For a Boho theme, you can even add unconventional options such as succulents or different shades of roses to your bridal bouquet if you wish to stick to the symbolism of love.
  • Bridesmaid’s wedding bouquets. You may want your bouquet to be the focal point when you walk down the aisle. However, it would help if you don’t neglect your bridesmaids’ dresses or bouquets. We can help you play around with different flowers here or use greenery and succulents instead of flowers.
  • Tossing bouquet. Depending on what you want to do with your bridal arrangement, you can have a different, fresh posy to use as the tossing bouquet and not one that had to endure an entire day of heat and photoshoots.
  • Groom and family boutonniere. It is common practice to give the groom a bit of colour to match the theme with a boutonniere similar to the flowers in your bouquet. You can also provide the mothers with a corsage as the guests of honour at your wedding.
  • Flower Girl and Ring Bearer. Will you have a flower girl and a ring bearer? Consider a flower crown and petals that she can scatter in the aisle and a boutonniere for the ring bearer. Let’s also discuss whether you will be placing decorations at the end of every pew along the aisle.
  • Entrance Arrangement. In the chapel, you can have a massive entrance arrangement to welcome the guests with the aroma of fresh flowers and get them in a happy mood for the ceremony. You can move wedding flowers in Sydney to the reception complemented by smaller centrepieces on the guest tables with the same flowers and greenery to enhance the theme.
  • Don’t forget the gift and cake table. You can’t have enough flowers at your reception; you want it to feel like a wonderland for just one day, so see the theme through on all tables and even add a flower to the cake.
  • Confetti. Rose petals are still a great way to lessen the impact you make on the environment, and it is a green option to use for confetti, along with herbs or dried leaves cut into hearts if you want more attention to detail.

When choosing table centrepieces, consider your guests. Smaller arrangements with a mild scent are preferable as overwhelming scents, and bulky arrangements could annoy sinuses, restrict the view, and prevent conversation between guests around the table. Ultimately, this is your day, so first, make decisions based on your theme and what you love.

Seasonal Wedding Bouquets in Sydney

Before you even think about flower options, you should consider the season of your wedding. You can order many flowers throughout the year, such as roses and daisies, but some flowers are only available during specific seasons. If you have set your heart on a particular flower, it would be best to discuss availability with your florist.

  • In wintertime, you have the following to look forward to: Peonies have a very short flowering season, and their season is June and July in Australia. You can also expect to see sweet peas, blushing bride, daffodils and ranunculus.
  • September and October. Springtime is the time of new energy and growth and brings with it Pieris, waratah, king protea and waxflowers.
  • In Summertime, you can add the following flowers to your bouquets: November is peony season, where you will find them at their best and mid-season, while the hydrangea, dahlia, freesia, petunia, and poppy season starts in November.
