Hi everyone!

I was wondering if anyone knew what types of flowers are commonly available in Winter in Australia? I was thinking of having a blue and white bouquet for myself and perhaps all white for my bridesmaides. I don't really know of many blue flowers (other than Irises).

Any ideas would be most welcome!

Pieris japonica is an evergreen Japanese shrub that grows to 1-2 metres in the cooler regions of Australia and particularly enjoys growing in shady areas under trees. Its flowers are popular in winter wedding bouquets as they are ivory with a blush of pink, bell-shaped and held in long, graceful tassels.And next one is the Snowdrops (Galanthus nivalis, meaning milk white flowers) and the similar-looking snowflakes (Leucojum) grow beautifully under deciduous magnolias and contribute to a wintry scene. The first sight of their pure-white nodding heads peeping through the forest floor signals winter is coming to an end.I hope you will satisfy.

WOW spammers are doing ALOT of research these days! wink.gif

My bouquet was a mix of white roses, irises and lissianthus. (Not sure if I spelled that right, but that's what it sounds like)

Thanks for your responses everyone! I will definitely have a chat to some florists, but it's helpful to have a few ideas to start with!

White makes right in this elegant and undeniably feminine bouquet, in which butterfly-like sweet peas flutter between bright white.The blue also nice color but there are many good colors are available.Something the dark color will suits good for the winter wedding.It's okay the blue and white are good choice for winter .

I've been wondering the same thing and have been wracking my brain trying to find someone that will do blue roses. Sounds odd I know but I've seen both real blue roses and dyed blue roses overseas and would love to have blue & white roses for my bouquet. Just not sure how or if I can get them in Aus.

Hi my name is nada I'm a florist, a new university graduate and currently studying floral design.

My recommendation is not to use dyed flowers e.g. Roses/ orchids.
These flowers often leave marks of the dye and destroy the gown.
Suggestions for blue flowers that are soft in nature: hydrangea, sweet pea and delphinium.These flowers mixed with lush foliage such as magnolia or camellia creates an elegant bouquet.

Hope this helps, please don't hesitate to ask further Qs.

Regards.

So this is a winter wedding theme? Hmmm. You are right. The main color of a winter wedding is blue and white. smile.gif That's the best combination, do you want a fresh flowers? or just a DIY?

Arrangements of contrasting colors (think mint green and cherry red) are decisively vivacious. But when picking a palette, make certain the blossoms will match your marriage method and colors.
