Popular Flowers in Season in Australia for Weddings

Flowers in Season in Australia

Did you know that most of the search results we see when we Google flowers in season are actually for the Northern Hemisphere, not for Australia?  

So as a floral designer I found that many future brides planning their weddings often wanted to know the most popular flowers in season in Australia on their wedding day.

Often when choosing flowers for a wedding or event, we think of the following: 

  • incorporating flowers we like,
  • including flowers that match our favourite colours or wedding colour palette,
  • flowers we find on Pinterest, or
  • the wedding or event budget.

So to help you with planning your event flowers, I’ve listed the popular flowers by season and colour.

(Note this list is by no means exhaustive. 

The Australian flower industry is still experiencing the impact of COVID and severe local weather conditions on flower production and supply. Your wedding florist should be able to advise on suitable alternatives should your flower of choice is not available. )
