What should we realistically be budgeting for wedding flowers?
The expense of wedding flowers can significantly differ based on the flower type, the arrangement's size and intricacy, and the wedding's location. In Melbourne, a bridal bouquet can cost between $150 to over $500, depending on the arrangement's complexity and size and if it features any premium or exotic blooms. Similarly, the cost of a ceremony arch varies, ranging from around $500 for a straightforward arch with greenery and a few flowers to over $2,000 for an elaborate one with premium blooms and foliage. The price of each table centrepiece can range from $150 to $600, depending on the size and complexity of the arrangement. It is crucial to keep in mind that these figures are approximate, and various factors can influence the actual cost of wedding flowers.
One effective approach to utilise the allocated floral budget is to repurpose ceremony florals for the reception, such as floor arbours that can be divided and reused. When allocating funds for wedding flowers, it is essential to prioritise which components are most important to the couple and allocate funds accordingly. Collaborating with a professional floral designer and being transparent about the budget constraints will allow the floral designer to make the most out of the allocated spending.
What is your approach to floral design?
Our floristry is an artistic expression that seeks to transcend the boundaries of conventional beauty and create arrangements that inspire and captivate the senses. We believe that flowers are not merely objects but are living works of art that have the power to transport us beyond this world. We draw inspiration from a wide range of creative mediums, including photography, fashion, painting and architecture.
