You’d be selling florists short if you think they’re merely shopfronts for selling flowers. To explain, we all know that red roses express love. Romance is also strong for white roses, which regularly play starring roles at weddings. White roses are said to be linked to new beginnings. But yellow roses? Traditionally, yellow roses indicate purely platonic emotions. This is why we need florists. Florists have an interest in knowing which flowers are appropriate for our significant moments—weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and other special occasions. You’ll often find the perfect bunch for the occasion at your local Byron Bay florist but when you have a few days up your sleeve prior to the date, you can do even better. You can then discuss your needs with your florist, giving them time to arrange something special for you. It makes sense to throw the challenge out to your florist when planning your big day—especially in the case of a wedding. Not only will you get the best blooms for the occasion, a good florist will also create eye-catching floral arrangements. Many Byron Bay florists are trained in horticulture. Your local florist’s knowledge of the many varieties can border on the mythical. Along with ensuring the aesthetic and fragrant quality and freshness of the blooms, they can often source exotic flowers and Australian natives, as well as manage the detailed artistry of floral arrangements.

because. Flowers always bring joy to the people they’re sent to. Most florists have bouquets, bunches and full flower arrangements ready to go.
