Whether they're perched on a wedding cake or starring in a table centrepiece, beautiful blooms are always in style. We make your decisions easier by breaking down your flower options into seasonal availability, and different bouquet styles.

Seasonality
Year round
Roses are the most popular choice of wedding flowers by a country mile – they are in bloom year round, suit various themes and are considered to be the epitome of romance.
Spring
Mixed spring blooms like anemones and poppies promote the idea of new life and vitality moving into summer.
Summer
Peonies are one of the most popular bridal flowers, along with chrysanthemums. Native Kiwi flowers, such as pohutukawa, work well too. Create a bouquet with a mix of blooms for a fresh, summery look.
Autumn
Hydrangeas are easily sourced in New Zealand, while ranunculus, along with berries and fruit such as crab apples, can be found in striking tones.
Winter
Ranunculus and freesias last into the winter, and tulips are another popular winter choice.

Bouquet Styles
Round
Classic and simple, this style works with any wedding look.
Crescent
This is a structured half-moon shape.
Cascade
Known as the ‘Princess Diana’ look, it’s great for grand occasions and statuesque women who can carry it off.
Posy
A small bunch of flowers.
Pomander
A globe of flowers which hangs from a ribbon, hung on the wrist.
