Seek Professional Advice

Choosing the perfect florals might seem overwhelming, but fear not! Team up with a talented wedding florist who will guide you through the floral wonderland. They'll help you navigate the vast array of options and offer expert advice tailored to your taste, budget, and the season.

Start with Inspiration

Gaining inspiration is a crucial step in the floral selection process. Pay a visit to floristry websites, wedding blogs, photography websites etc. and explore. You'll be inspired by the beautiful floral arrangements they've captured and get a sense of the styles that resonate with you.

Consider Dried Flowers

One trend that's gaining popularity in the wedding world is the use of dried flowers. These everlasting beauties lend a rustic and bohemian vibe to your decor and bouquets. Dried flowers are also a great option for destination weddings, as they are easy to transport and won't wilt in the heat.

Embrace Australian Natives

Another trend that has been taking the wedding industry by storm is the use of Australian native blooms. Showcasing the incredible diversity of our country's flora, native flowers add a touch of uniqueness and local charm to your wedding. Think banksias, kangaroo paws, and eucalyptus. Not only will you be supporting local growers, but you'll also be creating a sustainable and eco-friendly celebration.

Save Money with Seasonal Blooms

Choosing flowers that are in season not only ensures their freshness but can also help you save money. Seasonal blooms are usually more abundant and therefore more affordable. Talk to your florist about the local flowers available during your wedding month to create stunning arrangements without breaking the bank.

DIY Floral Elements

If you're feeling crafty and want to add a personal touch to your wedding, consider DIY floral elements. From creating your own centrepieces to designing boutonnieres and corsages, there are plenty of resources available online to help you bring your floral visions to life. Just make sure to start early and practice before the big day!

Opt for Double Duty

Get creative and find ways to repurpose your floral arrangements. For example, your ceremony flowers can be used as decorations for the reception venue, or the bridesmaids' bouquets can double as table centrepieces. Maximising the use of your blooms will not only save money but also reduce waste.

Enhance with Greenery

Don't underestimate the beauty of greenery! Incorporating lush foliage and foliage garlands into your floral arrangements can add a touch of elegance and enhance the overall aesthetic. Greenery is often more cost-effective than flowers and can help create a cohesive and natural look.

Remember, your wedding day is a reflection of your unique love story. Let your florals speak to your personality and style.


So there you have it! Follow these tips and let your floral dreams come to life on your big day. From seeking professional advice to incorporating dried flowers and Australian natives, there are endless possibilities to create a stunning wedding filled with the beauty of nature's blooms.
