    I was just looking at your Wedding Flower Availability – All Things Flowers Blog by Sydney Florists Flowers Across Sydney site and I love it, thank you for helping me out with what’s in season for my wedding.
    I really want to have Peonies so this will help me decide on a date around November.

    Cheers

      Thanks Britney for taking the time to check out our blog and it’s always great when we hear back from our readers. Because Peonies are in big demand and such a short availability period in Australia it would be best to contact your local supplier ahead of your wedding date to ensure that there will be sufficient stock. You may also want to choose a backup feature flower just in case Peonies are not available for unforeseen reasons.
      Have a great wedding day:)

    Thank you so much for creating this very useful chart. I am having my wedding next year and would like to do some of my own flowers, to save some money, but I was not sure what is in season around my chosen date, but now I do 😉

    Thanks again
