A springtime wedding in Queensland brings cooler temperatures and longer days. It is also the most popular season for weddings because of the abundant supply of flower options for your wedding blooms. To assist with all things wedding florals, we spoke to Terrianne from Mondo Floral Designs on floral seasonality.
It can often be a very confusing adventure navigating your way through the information on what flowers are available for your wedding day, and you certainly wouldn’t be the first bride-to-be to assume that your absolute favourite bloom MUST be available for your wedding day, because let’s face it each and every wedding magazine that you buy features it on the front cover!
However depending on what date you have chosen to say ‘I Do’ available wedding blooms generally change for each month. More times than not a wedding date is in place and it can be overwhelming and often a little upsetting for brides-to-be to find out that their dream wedding flower isn’t going to be available. It’s important to do a little research before getting your heart set on certain wedding flowers, and talking to your floral designer is by far the best way to access accurate information on seasonality and available wedding flowers for your day.
So it’s no surprise when clients come to see me and are completely confused by what wedding flowers are available and at what time of the year. The good news is though, there are wonderfully delicious wedding flowers available for each and every season, so regardless of what time of the year you choose to celebrate your love, we can assist you in planning for your Sunshine Coast wedding flowers concept, providing you with accurate knowledge and professional advice, as well as creating a unique floral concept of seasonal blooms for your beautiful day!

You may ask how a stylist can identify your tastes better than you, but as Trudy Croad from Lovebird Weddings says, the process of identifying a couple’s style is very in-depth. ‘Getting to know our clients is a really important element of our job. Some clients come to us knowing exactly what they want, so then our job is about how to pull this look together with the furniture and decor that we own. Others come to us with a blank canvas and are really counting on us to come up with a look that reflects them. Generally though, concepts develop over time, which is why we value working with our clients in a consultative basis right up until their wedding day…over time tastes will change and new trends will develop, and our clients count on us to have a dynamic styling process so that come the day of the wedding, we really have evolved the original concept to be better and more relevant to here and now.’
Whereas a bride or groom may get stuck on a particular ‘colour theme’ or detail (floral arch, fairy lights) a wedding stylist will look at an event in an overall cohesive way, ensuring the styling tells a story about you as a couple, and the event has a particular atmosphere about it.
Sperry Tents are the original and authentic sailcloth tent. Crafted by master New England-based sailmakers from genuine sailcloth – their signature peaks, ivory sails, tapered timber poles and exquisite detailing convey elegance and romance.
Constructed with state-of-the-art sealing and reinforcement of all seams, our Sperry Tents are tried and tested structures that are extremely strong, durable and watertight.
These beautiful, handmade tents are available in a variety of sizes. So, whether you are holding an intimate soiree, fairy-tale wedding or large-scale corporate event, our Sperry Tents have you covered!
Start with an inspiration and we as a team can make it become a wedding reality,a little piece of magic made just for you…
We had it all…Love ,Family ,Respect and Tradition all in one beautiful day. A meeting of cultures from New Zealand and South Africa married in one amazing styled inspiration,bringing the outside in!
We wish our beautiful couple all the bucket loads of wonderful that this life can ever deliver and we give them a big thanks for adding their special flavour to this magical day.
The first inspiration was to have an outside marquee somewhere but as we have a venue that sits looking out to an amazing valley of natural verdant rainforest, why add another structure but instead utilise all the spaces in an elegant way.If anyone has organised a marquee wedding you will realise it comes with lots of extra elements to consider and a whole bit extra on the end budget. And we happen to have a venue that open outside to in,all under cover should you require.
The brief was to bring the outside in and for everyone to have a fabulous time! You will see the traditional Maori feather cloak the, fabulous King Protea featuring in the blooms and one very enthusiastic Hakka welcome. Note the greenery added to the room so that it felt like you where sitting in the garden,but in total comfort looking out to Noosa and Coolum and our sea of green that surrounds the estate.
Who wears the pants…our bridesmaids do, that’s who and why not when your invite states garden party ,Maleny… why would you not go comfy elegant? We are talking wedges ladies or flats for the feet, if you can run in heels go for it or otherwise leave the stilettos in the cupboard. Pants can be oh so elegant and flattering ,then you can actually sit on cushions around a palette table. This was a mix and match style with a fabulous colour palette, add the pop of the large protea flowers from South Africa and bam! you have the wow.
The style team and one very classy bride brought it all together using “Blush” one of the very on trend bases from which you can create some magic.Work your way through this magical day gallery below and don’t miss some great styling inso in the last images that you just may want to take inspiration from.

Oh and in Australia, November is the peak month for this precious cargo sometimes starting early in October and then nudging into the first week of December if you are super lucky.
Add one very creative Bride who is also a great cook as much as she is a craft demon, with hand dying table runners and stringing together her own hand crafted streamers, no buying online for this lady. All for a gorgeous gal that normally rocks a hard hat!
Add in a great family of helpers,some fabulous entertainment, the bright red Kombi from Deluxe Kombi Service and we had our own special Maleny Fiesta with the pavilion decked in streamers of pink ,yellow, orange,blush and gold.
Beautiful Apples was the Flower Girl Puppy , we think she was smiling on the inside, in her very chilled pup way, her specially crafted outfit was also made by the Bride. Puppies are such a big focus of our couples day’s and China the owl delivered the wedding rings in style swooping in as a surprise down the aisle.
As you can see beaming from these beautiful bright images, high on the list for Tamara and Tim was fun and family, love and respect, when you add in all those ingredients with a giant pop of colour , you are on a winner for your wedding day.
In the words of our In House Super Star Mondo Floral Designs as this wedding was all created from the florals up!
My goodness we love the opportunity to work with bright and colourful blooms, and for this particular celebration we certainly had a wow of a time creating the floral focus that highlighted this peony Maleny Manor wedding! Tamara and Tim were married at the gorgeous hinterland wedding venue in November and so of course peonies were high on their wish list for their feature bloom, and a combination of coral charm and Sarah Bernhardt peonies took centre stage in the designs, and what a delight it was creating the sweet hand held bouquets showcasing those delicious peony blooms. Due to our gorgeous bride’s location, all of our communication with Tamara pre-wedding was via email and as we do with many of our clients we created and designed her floral concept remotely based on her inspiration and her vision for colour, and so it was wonderful to see her ecstatic reaction on the day when we presented her with her bridal box, and she finally got to touch and see her wedding designs.
The beautiful bride and her gal pals all wore fabulous flower crowns and we created the beautiful hair garlands with pretty pops of pink, coral and mustard yellow blooms. We thought the flower crowns added that extra bit of glamorous wow to the styling, and the vivid pinks and corals combined effortlessly with the blush bridesmaids dresses. The floral concept showcased the most amazing summer florals, and alongside the beautiful peonies, dahlias, cluster roses, David Austin roses, lisianthus, Billy Buttons, berries and flowering fillers also featured . The gents had matching bright eclectic buttonhole designs and the vivid colour popped perfectly against their blue suits.
The ceremony featured hand made bunting inspired details created by the bride and her family, and our chair jars of bright blooms lined the aisle ready for the beautiful couple to say ‘I Do’.
Our antique gold chalice vases featured at reception, each featuring a collection of the beautiful summer blooms showcased through the bouquets, the pretty bright colours of magenta and coral with pops of yellow and pink combined beautifully with the additional colourful details and table decor at reception.
