Wedding Flowers

How flowers can elevate your styling and complete your wedding day look –

From the very start Monique works with transparency, honesty and encourages you to have fun with the look of your day. Seamlessly offering bespoke floral design, alongside styling as the two go hand in hand to compliment each other on your day. These two services are essential when it comes to how a venue feels and how your theme flows from one space to another.

Here are Monique’s tips to choosing the right florist or stylist for you:

  1. Consider someone who has a deep understanding of how certain florals can enhance the look of your theme.
    For example if your stylist is curating a spring theme they may choose to include particular florals that make stationary or crockery pop. Tying colours in is an important aspect to ensure there is cohesion and a flow to your look.
  2. Decide on if you would like your florals or styling to be the main character.
    To create a balanced look consider either minimal styling or florals as this approach will allow the styling of your day to pop instead of being overwhelming.
  3. Work with someone you like.
    It goes without saying that you should click with your vendors, but if you don’t like the person creating the atmosphere of your day, you will likely not LOVE the end result. This is huge as you want to walk into your wedding and be blown away by every little detail your stylist and florist has created for you.
  4. If you have no idea on how to create your dream look, then don’t compromise and do it yourself. If you are someone who is unsure of how to create the perfect wedding style, then a stylist needs to be at the top of your priority list. There are so many creative couples who are incredible at designing elements for their day, but simply don’t know how to bring the entire look together. I work alongside them to include these sentimental details, weaving other items into the look that will compliment and enhance the style of the day.

How much does it cost to hire a stylist and florist for your wedding?

On average the cost of an Australian wedding stylist and florist is approximately $9,704

The cost of a stylist and florist for your day can often be one of the first elements you consider as you want the space to have a certain feel to it. Venues generally provide a blank canvas, allowing couples to infuse their personalities and preferences into a location.

Harvest by Monique curates personalised quotes to ensure that your budget is kept in mind, working inclusively to tailor this pivotal aspect of planning into her approach. It is important to note that these two services predominantly work virtually, with a couple only seeing around 10% of the process. From concept to the day, an average of 100’s of hours go into research, brief development, sourcing specific items, site visits, meetings and finally installation and pack down on the day.
