3 Tips for finding Affordable Wedding Flowers in the Dandenong Ranges

Bride Bouquet Peach and Pink under $200

The Dandenong Ranges is a pocket of absolutely magical wedding venues and a region of Melbourne we are happy to service. With each new venue I fall more in love with this diverse region.

Tip 1: Find a venue which offers package deals

Packages are the key to staying on budget when you are shopping around for wedding suppliers as most suppliers add in little extras for no additional cost. A fixed price fee for all things wedding helps you stay in control of your wedding budget.

My couples venue was Forest Edge Restaurant in Gembrook and it as a view which has to been seen to believe. Set up with that view took much longer than I anticipated. The Yarra Ranges in the background just breathtaking.

Tip 2: Give your bridesmaid’s mini bouquets. 

Mini bouquets are a great way to save money on your wedding flowers. Spend the money on the main bouquet and go mini for your squad. There are a large number of Pinterest pins showing mini bouquets, I have a special section in my wedding bouquet board on Pinterest just on Mini Bouquets. The ADM Flower Mini Bridesmaid Bouquets are $50.00 each.

My bride wanted to her bouquet to stand out even more and chose pinks, peaches and corals. We were lucky enough to be at the start of the local peony season and have fabulous Coral Peonies to use.

Tip 3: Use Foliage Garland & tea light candles for reception tables

Foliage garland has become my new favourite table decoration for rectangle tables. Using a mixture of different foliages we create a rustic look for your guests. The garlands also smell lovely. We tucked in sprigs of rosemary to this garland for extra fragrance. The ADM Flowers foliage garland is $30 per metre.

Adding tea light candles (in vases to prevent the foliage catching fire) is a great way to add a little bit more luxury to the table. The two dollar shops are the best place to buy these. Check with the venue first and also make sure you ask your florist if there is a surcharge to put them out. We usually charge an additional small fee to set candles up.
