What flowers will be available on my wedding day?
When it comes to choosing your ideal bridal bouquet or floral arrangements it’s important to consider what blooms will be in season for your wedding day. Whilst there are some flowers that bloom throughout the year, most flowers follow their own unique growing cycle linked intimately with seasonal weather conditions. Flowers such as peony roses only bloom from November to mid-December.

For a comprehensive list, please view my Seasonal Flower Availability guide on my website.

I don’t know what flowers I want. Can you help me?
Of course, that’s what I’m here for. A lot of couples tell me they don’t know what flowers they want so I ask them to send me some inspiration pictures and to answer a few simple questions. Pinterest, Instagram and the internet are great places to find some inspiration. Most of the time, I can instantly tell what a couple likes from these images and guide them through various options. I’ve listed a few questions below to help get you started.

  • Where is your wedding venue? (city, country, winery, restaurant, reception centre)
  • What style wedding are you having? (boho, rustic, modern, classic)
  • What colour palette are you having? (bridesmaid dresses, suits, linens, stationary)

If you need any advice, please feel free to email hello@thistleflowerstudio.com.au

Do you charge of consultations?
No, we offer all our couples a complementary one-on-one consultation.
