FLORAL STYLING AND DECORATION FOR WEDDINGS

Operating since 2006, Blooming Brides is widely regarded for supplying truly beautiful wedding flowers.

Our aim is to celebrate the best of our locally-grown, seasonal blooms with designs that complement the chosen venue and our client’s theme. Combined with our distinctively generous style and love of decoration, this approach has made us a recommended supplier for many venues across the Yarra Ranges and Melbourne, in particular Stones of the Yarra Valley in Coldstream and Zonzo in Yarra Glen.

LOCATION & MEETINGS

Blooming Brides operates out of a studio located at 333 Belgrave-Gembrook Road, Emerald 3782.

Consultations are by appointment only.  Before meeting, clients are encouraged to put together a few pages of images that demonstrate the look and feel they are after.

During meetings, clients can view our extensive portfolio, range of glassware and styling props. We discuss styles of arrangement and flower varieties in season at the time of the wedding that will best achieve the desired effect – with budget considerations in mind.  We are happy to work with clients who want a hand in styling and can assist with set up of props provided by clients.

Following the consultation, clients are provided with an itemised cost breakdown. Consultations are held during the week, evenings and on weekends.  However, we are limited to the number of weekend appointments we can hold in the thick of wedding season.

COSTS

Our weddings in the Yarra Valley have a minimum spend of $3000 for events involving venue set-up and pack down. Costs are determined by choice of flower varieties, desired volume and complexity of design. 

Straightforward orders that involve the supply or purchase of glassware/vessels and do not require a pack-down are negotiable.

We do not offer set-price bridal flower packages. However, bridal-flower-only orders are possible, with most bridal bouquets falling between $200 - $300, and bridesmaids approximately half the size and fee of a bride’s bouquet.

Delivery fees are determined by the return distance and driving time from our studio and we can deliver anywhere in Melbourne.

Blooming Brides services weddings in the city and on the Peninsula. However we have a minimum spend of $4000 for venue decoration requiring set-up and pack down.

MAKING CONTACT

Our business hours for contact are Tuesday – Saturday, though we do weddings on all days of the week. Between Friday – Sunday we can be extremely busy doing weddings and it might take a few days for a response.

To arrange an appointment, please submit an enquiry through the enquiries page. Alternatively, to discuss your requirements, please call Rita on 0417 114444. Unfortunately we cannot provide written quotes without meeting clients. However, we are willing to have a chat with clients and give a cost indication over the phone.  On Monday the phone is switched off!
