Natural stem Posy – Also know as a hand-tied bouquet, similar to a posy, but the stems are exposed and usually bound with ribbon, they are a little less symmetrical as the posy as they are not in a bridie.

Arm Sheaf – Lies along the forearm or hands to form a long, narrow and neat shape or a wider version with soft trails.

Please keep in mind
Townsville’s climate is hot and dry, and flowers such as, Frangipanis, Peony Roses, Sweet Pea, Hibiscus, Gardenias, Hydrangea etc do not do well for lasting bouquets and arrangements. It is important flowers are selected in season for the best experience.
When researching bridal bouquets and pictures online, please keep in mind the majority of these flowers are from either Melbourne, Victoria or often America. Unfortunately many of these blooms are not suited to our tropical climate or they are out of the traditional peak season, which in turn drives up the price per stem or they are not their regular size they can become quite small.
Artificial flowers are available by request. They can be mixed amongst fresh flowers or stand alone.
You will find our wedding quotes are itemised, so you will know the exact number of flowers in your bouquet and arrangements you are paying for.
