Flowers by Varu

Wedding Flowers FAQs

How much do wedding flowers cost? Is there a minimum cost to ordering with you?
There’s no minimum cost when you order from our online Wedding Flowers range. We understand many couples have tight budgets and we’re used to working on orders that range from modest to extravagant. The average couple spends between $7500 – $15500 on wedding flowers (depending on the style of the wedding, of course). 

How far in advance do I need to order my flowers on your site?
Our order cut-off for our online Wedding Flowers range is six weeks prior to your wedding, so it’s a good idea to organise your flowers as early as possible. That way, our suppliers have adequate notice. 

Can I pay a deposit now and the balance on the day?
Most brides have their hands full on their actual wedding day, so we do ask that you make full payment for your flowers 4 weeks before the big day. 

Do you deliver my flowers on the day?
Yes, we do. The Flowers By Varu team will take care of the whole process. If you’ve ordered bouquets and buttonholes for the bridal party, we’ll do a bridal party delivery to wherever you’re getting ready. We’ll also do a separate delivery to the venue.

Do you also style the venue and provide items like vases etc?
If you’ve ordered table centrepieces and other flowers for your venue, we handle all the set-up on the day so the venue is ready and looking beautiful by the time you arrive. If you’re after a unique custom order, we can supply the vases, pots and other accessories to complete the desired look.

What comes first – the dress or the flowers?
If you’re going to style the venue in a specific theme, you should work that out first before choosing your flowers. Generally, though, flowers will match most types of dresses and venues, so you don’t necessarily need to have the dress before you choose your flowers. 

I know nothing about flowers. Can you help me choose?
Of course! We know wedding flowers are a big purchase and we want to make sure you’re happy with your selection. Feel free to contact us for a chat.

My wedding is outside of Melbourne. Is that a problem?
Sorry! We’re only able to cater to Melbourne-based brides at this stage. We do travel to regional Victoria, but be aware we do add a travel fee on top of our normal delivery and set up fee. 

I have an idea in mind for my flowers that’s different to what’s available in your online Wedding Flowers range. Do you do custom orders?
We do. Many brides have a particular vision for their dream wedding – right down to every little detail. Simply chat to us about your ideas and we’ll work with you to create a beautiful, unique look for your wedding flowers. We require a minimum spend of $7500 for custom flower orders (plus delivery and set-up).
