You are going to want to rely on your Melbourne wedding flowers provider for advice. These experts have a lot of information they can give you in regards to the flowers you are contemplating, as well as their arrangements.

You may want to prepare yourself prior to your visit to your Melbourne florist by looking through some bridal magazines to get an idea of the various arrangements. Your floral shop will most likely have a selection of bouquets made up as examples as well as some photos of these that will help you to choose.

Don’t be afraid to ask your florist to customise your bouquet for you. For example, if you see one arrangement you really like but would like a different flower then you can ask if this is possible. Some flowers look their best when arranged a certain way and your florist will mention this if relevant.

One of the most important aspects about your flowers is going to be their colour. You may be wearing white but you also need to consider the flowers for your bridal party. You want your bride’s bouquet to harmonize well with theirs because of the many photos that will be taken.
