We would all like our favourite flowers in our wedding bouquets - dahlias or poppies, David Austin roses or maybe hydrangeas. Often a florist can get what you want, even if they have to source the flowers from outside of Adelaide or even Australia but playing it safe and choosing flowers that are in season means you are very unlikely to be disappointed and not get the flowers you chose. As a wedding photographer, I have heard too many brides disappointed that the flowers they were promised weren't available.
This bridal bouquet was by She Runs Wild and JUST what the bride wanted. The brides love of dahlias inspired her to include them in her bridal bouquet and they were available for her summer wedding.
If you have a summer wedding and fresh flowers with stems that aren't wrapped in ribbon, it's a good idea to keep them in the water as long as possible. It may even be an option to keep them in a bit of water (not a lot so there are no water spills) or a damp towel around them as you travel to your ceremony so the flowers last the length of your wedding day, especially for your wedding ceremony and official photos.
