Your unique wedding bouquets

Selecting wedding bouquets is an important part of any wedding plan yet one that can be left to the last minute as you get caught up in other plans. We highly recommend don't leave it too late - plan ahead so you are sure you have the flowers you want and are not disappointed.

Deciding on your wedding bouquet is the next decision you make after you select your dresses. The style and colour of your wedding dress and your attendants' dresses will influence the flowers that will be chosen. Other considerations include the physical build of the bride and attendants as you want the overall look to be in proportion and complimentary to everyone.

Our wedding bouquets will ensure nothing is overlooked when selecting flowers and this includes allergies. Be aware of flowers that could set off a sneezing attack - not a great look for a bride or bridesmaid! We also will ensure the bridal wedding flowers stand out in some way against the complimentary look of bridesmaid and flower girl arrangements.

Bring in a colour swatch of your wedding dress, bridesmaids dresses and flower girl's dresses - the last thing you want is a colour clash. Once we have this, we can work with you to create beautiful wedding bouquets that will enhance your walk down the aisle and give you the confidence you and your attendants are looking confident, radiant and coordinated.

How to care for a special arrangement


Receiving an arrangement of flowers is a beautiful way to enjoy your special occasion whether it is a birthday, an anniversary or a special milestone in life. However we find some people are unsure of the best way to keep a floral arrangement blooming for as long as possible. We usually provide some basic tips that ensure you can have your flowers brightening your home or office.


  1. Get your flowers home as quickly as possible. If you are in a car, place them on the floor out of the sun and if it is hot, drive with your air conditioner on. Cut flowers perish quite quickly if out of water for a period of time in hot weather.
  2. Have a vase ready and make sure it is clean. Clean with detergent or perhaps a little bleach. Fill the vase with cold water and add a flower preservative sachet.
  3. Take the floral arrangement out of the wrapping paper, roll the rubber band or ties away from the stem ends. Strip any leaves off the stem that will be underwater.
  4. Cut 1cm-2cm off each stem and place in water.
  5. Put the vase in a cool position. Not it direct sunlight or near a heater.
  6. Check daily. Top with water and flower preservative. Completely change the water every three days or so.

Follow these instructions and your flowers will last in great condition keeping the memory of your special occasion alive.
