Native Australian Flowers for Your Wedding

If you’re having an destination wedding in Australia, what better way to incorporate the culture into your wedding than to add native Australian flowers to your floral arrangements.

Kangaroo Paw: Just as the name implies, this plant looks like little fuzzy kangaroo paws. Fun fact! Kangaroo Paw is actually the floral emblem of Western Australia! It comes in a variety of bright colors including red, pink, orange, and yellow. Incorporate them into your flower arrangement for a punch of color.

Foliage: Foliage may seem like something you can pick up at your local park, but did you know that it is commonly used in Australia for bouquets and floral arrangements?  Foliage is a fresh take on a wedding bouquet because they add boldness to any bride’s overall wedding look.

Eucalyptus: A fantastic point about Eucalyptus is that it smells amazing! It not only balances and fills out your wedding bouquet but it will add a beautiful fragrance to the bouquet as well. Also, if you are planning on having your furry friend with you at your destination wedding, Eucalyptus is dog friendly too!
