What’s the bouquet being made today?

This is a Summer Florists Choice bouquet, one of Maison de Fleurs’ most popular bouquets. It’s perfect for those that aren’t sure what they want, but are looking for something beautiful! The Florists Choice really is the epitome of our florists’ skill—they will pick the finest seasonal flowers amongst gorgeous fillers and foliage to create a stunning bouquet.

What goes into the Florists Choice bouquet?

Sometimes you have a favourite flower or a colour you love, and we build the Florists Choice around this. When our customers come to us purchasing a Florists Choice we ask them if they have any preferences to what is included and how it looks—so let’s say you just love pink, our florists will hand pick the best flowers available to create a stunning pink bouquet just for you.

Tell us a bit about Maison de Fleurs.

It’s traditionally the beginning of wedding season, what are some of your favourite flowers that you would be choosing for a wedding at the moment?

We know a lot of brides love peonies, but they are only in season for such a short amount of time that we can suggest one of many alternatives. Lots of garden roses have a similar shape and size so we can use these, also dahlias look gorgeous in wedding arrangements. In the winter hellebores are gorgeous, and again roses. 

Wedding flowers are very personal, often we have brides who have a specific flower that they want included, this may be because they have a flower that reminds them of someone special or a special moment in their relationship. This is something we love hearing and will always try to make it possible for this to happen.

A lot of people on their wedding day go for quite a natural makeup look, Code 8 have some gorgeous shades of products, if you were going for a natural, nude make up look what flowers would you pair with that for a bridal bouquet for summer and then for autumn/winter?

Cafe au lait dahlias are gorgeous and are the perfect nude shade, Quicksand roses are also a stunning option. They also look gorgeous in a hair arrangement if you’re looking to have flowers in your hair! 

If you’re going to for a bold red, romantic look, black baccara roses are one of the most striking red roses. They are almost velvet to the touch and look stunning against the white of a wedding dress.

Now that you have learned all the pointers from the floral connoisseurs at Maison de Fleurs. Why not put together a floral arrangement from the flowers you can find in your garden or at the supermarket.
