We love creating beautiful handmade floral designs for weddings and elopements. We are based in Ulverstone, Tasmania and love working with the very best of what the season has to offer, grown here in Tasmania or from around Australia. You can expect high quality customer service and attention to detail as we only take a limited number of bookings a year. We have 12+ years of industry experience and will travel to any dream location. 

Below you’ll find some great information on what you can expect to receive from us based on the budgets listed. Also, another great tool for navigating wedding planning is our ‘Wedding Flowers Cost Calculator’. 

"You can trust in a qualified Floral Designer"





Here is where you’ll find a summary of example wedding flower budgets and what you can expect to receive from us within your budget.

There is a lot of flexibility when it comes to sorting through a budget for your wedding flowers. It’s important to know, as a couple, how important fresh flowers are for your wedding day – you may feel flowers aren’t a central focus for your day or you may feel that flowers are “the thing” that will bring your unique day to life. Also, give some consideration to your venue; does it need the additional décor florals provided or is it a beautiful venue itself and you don’t need to go over the top?

As a rule of thumb, we suggest your floral budget to account for 10-15% of your overall wedding budget. If on the other hand you are looking for Pinterest-worthy, abundant design, we would suggest allocating 20-25% of your total wedding budget. Most of our couples spend between $3500 - $7500 but some spend less of budget based on their preferences. Remember, its your day and the day should reflect your taste and style.

Below is by no means a complete list. Like everything else wedding-flower-related there are so many ‘what ifs’ and ‘except this’ scenarios. The following is meant to be a rough guide to help you plan which items could be covered within your price range.


Under $1000

  • Most often this will allow for a bridal bouquet, a few bridesmaid bouquets as well as buttonholes for the groom and groomsmen. Depending on the number in the bridal party, it could account for buttonholes and corsages for a few additional family members.
  • If you are having a very intimate wedding and no bridal party, it could account for your bouquet, a buttonhole as well as a small feature installation at the ceremony or reception.

$1500 - $3000

  • Depending on the size of the bridal party, this will cover off all personal flowers (bouquets and buttonholes) as well as allow for some table decorations at the reception. We would suggest smaller arrangements on each table or a collection of bud vases and feature blooms to fit within the budget.
  • Or, instead of table flowers, this could allow for a large feature at the ceremony (perhaps an arbour design) or the reception (perhaps hanging foliage installation with a few pops of flowers throughout).
  • Alternatively, if you’re bridal party only includes two additional people, this budget could allow for a ceremony feature element as well as a reception installation. We could then look at using candles to decorate the tables instead of flowers.

 $3500 - $5000

  • This budget could cover the personal flowers as well as a feature design at the ceremony and reception. It can also cover off smaller table arrangements or bud vases for the table decorations as well as candles.
  • Or, if there is just one of either a ceremony design or reception installation, there will be budget to cover off our standard sized table arrangements.

$5500 - $7500

  • This price range falls within our typical full-service wedding – most often this includes personal flowers, a ceremony floral feature, an installation at the reception, as well as flowers and candles for the tables.
  • However though, if we are building a large custom ceremony design, this budget may only account for personal flowers, the ceremony feature and a few touches at the reception.

$7500 - $10,000

  • With this budget we are often looking at a collection of personal flowers, large statement / impact pieces at the ceremony (for example, urn arrangements, an arbour PLUS aisle flowers). For the reception, the budget could allow for a hanging feature as well as flowers and candles for the tables.

It’s almost impossible to provide all the details on each and every budget because every couple’s wedding is unique. The above looks to provide some guidance on what items can be accounted for within a budget.

You’ll note we haven’t mentioned lots of smaller pieces so often requested – flower crowns, cake flowers, rose petals, junior bridesmaid posies, gift table arrangements. There are literally hundreds of permutations and combinations so have left these out to try to keep things simple.

Also, prices will vary quite a bit depending on the number of flowers used and how many premium blooms are to be included. Peonies, Orchids, speciality Roses etc are more premium flowers and the budget needs to account for this.

It’s also important to be aware labour charges can vary dramatically as well – each venue has its own rules on when we can set up and pack down. All of this has an impact on costs for the day. Labour charges also change depending on the time of day we need to set up / pack down as well as the day of week (Saturdays and Sundays incur penalty rates, and early morning or late nights incur penalty rates).

From our perspective, we are super excited to work with couples regardless of their budget. We have no minimum spend and are always happy to provide suggestions on where the money is best spent, where to get ‘the most bang for your buck’ at your venue and how to make the greatest impact on the day.

Finally, remember every florist prices differently and it might be that florists in your area charge more or even less for some items than we do. We’re simply looking to provide this as a guide to help manage expectations. 

Hope this helps with your wedding planning & we look forward to hearing from you soon!
