A seasonal guide to your wedding flowers

We have put together this wedding flowers seasonality guide including some of the most popular wedding flowers. Certainly sometimes seasons can be extended and there are also some wedding flowers that can cross over into a couple of seasons, we have also listed the couple of most sought after flowers that can generally be available as imported lines in Australia. Import options need to be discussed with your floral designer, please note imports are subject to availability, and import processes and availability through seasons are not always the full entire period of time, with some import lines only available for 5-6 weeks. All import options need to be discussed for viability.
