Weddings

From advance reservations to last-minute enquiries, contact our friendly team anytime to check our availability. As a general guide, we recommend being in touch as soon as you have your date locked-in and venue/ceremony booking confirmed.

We’re available by phone and email. No matter what your choice of contact, we love collaborating with you and hearing about your vision for your special day – we get very excited about it! Regardless, we know life is busy – and especially when organising a wedding – so if you don’t have time for a call, you are more than welcome to drop us a line via email.

As you might imagine, there are some times of year that are busier than most. We suggest getting in touch with us once you’ve confirmed your date, venue and ceremony location. In general, the most popular months are February to April and November to December.

Flowers are a product of nature and the costs of flowers change with the seasons, as well as in high-demand periods (e.g. Valentine’s Day). The cost of flowers in winter months is also slightly higher due to the general running costs of hot houses. Regardless of changing markets, we always endeavour to offer you the best possible value for money.

We source many of our flowers locally and love supporting our local growers when it comes to designing wedding displays. It’s also our job to get you the colours, varieties and qualities necessary to make your day perfect, which is why we source a wide range of flowers from throughout the world including Taiwan, Ecuador, Holland, Thailand, New Zealand, and more.

No matter what their location, we are super-selective with our suppliers, ensuring that the farms from which flowers are sourced have the highest possible standards in terms of employee care, sustainability, quality and reliability. If you’re interested in creating a beautiful, local-only display, drop us a line!

Like all of us, Christmas and New Year is an important time for our team to spend with family and friends. While we usually plan to take approximately two to three weeks off between Christmas and New Year, please contact us for specific availability.

Oh, yes, and we love it too! At Ivy & Eve, we’re incredibly proud to work with some of Melbourne’s most renowned and elite stylists. If you choose to work with you own choice of professional stylist, they will contact us with your floral brief and we’ll work together to create your designs.

It would be devastating for you to have to cancel your wedding, and also very for us too. In the case that you must, our policy is below:

  • 100% cancellation fee applies to events cancelled within 14 days of confirmed date

Given recent circumstances, we’ll be with you every step of the way if you need to postpone. Our policy is below:

  • 30% postponement fee applies to events postponed within 120 days of the confirmed date (deposit will be withheld and transferred to new date)
  • 50% postponement fee applies (30% deposit + additional 20%) to events postponed within 60 Days of the confirmed date (deposit + additional payment will be withheld and transferred to new date)
  • 50% postponement fee applies (deposit + 20% additional payment) to events postponed within 14 Days of the confirmed date (deposit + additional payment will be withheld and transferred to new date)

Please note that all flowers that have been pre-ordered and purchased will be charged accordingly.

As florists, one of the trickiest elements of our job (would you believe!) is managing, well, the flower. We are constantly asking questions like will they open in time? Will the weather be hot? What if it’s windy? What if there’s a storm? As a product of nature, flowers have their own minds when it comes to blooming or coming into season.

While changing weather conditions often mean that seasonal availability is out of our control, one thing is for certain: you can trust our incredible team – all with many years’ of combined experience – to find you the perfect substitute. We’re so creative and caring with our clients, that often the solution turns out better than the one planned!

If that pesky thermometer hits the roof, we’ll do everything we can to keep your flowers looking their best. Being a product of nature, there’s every chance that like us, on a hot day, your flowers will also feel the pressure.

We have a lot of experience and when it comes to the care and maintenance of your blooms, and can find solutions like storing them in a coolroom where possible, not setting the florals onto tables in the marquee until the last minute, and giving you and your bridesmaids a water source to keep your bouquets hydrated when they’re not being held. We’ll work with you to find a solution to every problem!

We specialise in finding beautiful, creative and absolutely stunning replacements. Trust us!

There’s no limit to what we’ll do to make your day perfect. We simply take into consideration information such as the location, venue access, how many staff will be needed, and the time we need to be onsite for in order to provide you with a cost estimate and breakdown.
Where can we see examples of weddings you’ve done?

We love sharing our work with you! Head to our instagram page to view all our latest.

Of course. We take pride in taking care of everything to do with your florals so you don’t have to lift another finger. We deliver your bridal flowers to you and the buttonholes to the guys. We’ll make set-up and bump-out at your ceremony and reception a breeze – leave it to us!

As experienced experts in our field, we can happily suggest how to best utilise your budget. At the end of the day, you have thousands of options and we’re here to help you discover them. However, as a general guide for budget, a wedding including the bridal florals, groom, three bridesmaids, three groomsmen, ceremony florals, 150 guests, delivery, set-up and bump-out is likely to sit at an investment of around $4,500.

Within your budget, there are lots of variations available. You could, for example, commission beautiful ceiling installations as large feature pieces with small, specimen florals for the guest tables below, or choose to allocate more budget to the bridal party’s florals and guest tables. We can also recommend where best to position the florals to really nail that impact.

Following your initial enquiry, we’ll get back to you with an estimated budget and breakdown of costs. From there, we can organise a Zoom or face-to-face meeting to discuss your ideas in more detail and answer any questions you may have following your initial contact. A deposit is then made to confirm your wedding date, and we begin the evolving creative process with you by designing your customised style guide and personalised itemised quote.

This is where we really get creative, discussing the special details such as your styling items, linen, dress, bridesmaids dresses, guys’ suits… you name it. We adore working in partnership with you to create your ideal aesthetic and vibe!

We’re super experienced in our work. Naturally, we understand that often arrangements need to evolve and change. We are flexible, adaptable and naturally personable, and communication is open at every step of the way. To keep stress and bay and so you don’t have to remember everything yourself, we organise a final meeting where we go over the details, finalise your requirements, and your exact no. of RSVPs. We’ll even liaise with your venue on your behalf. Easy! Take a load off.

Put simply, we’re absolute experts in our field and you’ll adore working with us. Creative, warm and hassle-free, we know how to make your day perfect. Having had the pleasure of designing thousands of weddings, we understand the importance of your florals and having your wedding day look perfect and run smoothly. We also get a real kick out of making your displays look ridiculously good!

What makes us particularly different is our true eye for detail. We take into account a holistic perspective of your styling, noting linen colour, chairs, venue aesthetic, and more, and ensuring your florals align. From idea conception to wrapping flowers for your guests to take home at the end of the night, we’re with you all the way, working in partnership, with gratitude.

Your wedding is likely one of the most significant days of your life, and at the end of the day, you get what you pay for in terms of time, effort, care, quality and love. We take pride in providing premium quality flowers and style. Your flowers are cared for, conditioned and prepped sometimes 14 days before the wedding to ensure that they open perfectly for your special day. We’re often at the flower market from 2.30am to collect specific blooms, running around to find those extra little elements that we know you will love. Sometimes, we create until well into the evening, even after a market run.

Your wedding bouquet, for example, can often take up to three hours to complete. We ensure it looks perfect from every angle, each floral piece customised and thoughtfully and created to a recipe. Every stem is thought about and arranged to perfect. We then condition the flowers, prep the blooms and pull it all together. When it comes to making your roses look fluffy and frilly, we hand-prep them with a technique called reflexing which involves the manipulation of each individual petal until the rose bloom resembles a large, full and fluffy traditional rose shape. This technique can take approximately 40 seconds per rose, and when reflexing over 1,000 roses for a wedding, that involves a great deal of time and care, which we wouldn’t have any other way.

The favourites are roses, peony roses, hydrangeas, orchids, tulips, sweet pea, ranunculas, dahlias, and garden roses. Really, though, you can choose anything!

Favourite terms of those in the events and performance industries, ‘bump-in’ and ‘bump-out’ describe the set-up/delivery and pack-up of your flowers. Most venues allow a two-hour bump-in window for us to set up. Bump-in costs can vary from $250-1500+ depending on requirements.

Bump-out is when our team returns at the end of the wedding to remove and collect the hire styling items such as vases, candles and structures (e.g. ceiling installations). Most venues allow one to one-and-a-half hours to bump out. Bump-out is generally at the end of the wedding night but in some cases we can also organise an alternative day. Bump-out costs vary from $250-850+ depending on requirements.

Yes,! We love to see flowers going home to be enjoyed post-wedding. We can include this service as part of your bump-out costs.

Absolutely. If the specific details of your day allow it, we love seeing the florals be reused! Chat with us about possibilities when it comes to transporting and re-setting your florals between locations.

Absolutely. We love site visits. We can organise this directly with your venue manager, with you or we can visit solo. This helps us get an eye for matching your arrangements to the venue context, letting the ideas for arrangements, ceiling installations and larger feature pieces flow! Sometimes, we’ll already be familiar with your wedding venue and can walk you through our experience elements that work particularly well for the space.

Absolutely! Generally, this would be available 3-4 weeks before the wedding and at an additional cost. While due to seasonal availability we can’t guarantee that the mock-up will be an exact replica of your order on the day, we’ll do our very best to create what you like and meet your expectations.

We’re extremely proud of our hassle-free, easy breezy process. We can happily share this with you following receipt of your deposit.

As we offer bespoke florals that are customised to your needs and requirements, we don’t offer set package fees. Your vision is our passion, and we love working with you to bring it to life. Regardless, we can happily offer you a general estimate of costs – get in touch with us to find out more.

While you can absolutely get in touch with us at any point in the process, you might also find it useful to have some inspiration. Think about style, vibe, colours and flower types, perhaps even creating a mood board (with an app like Pinterest) to help get your creative juices flowering. Regardless, there’s absolutely no need for doing any of this. Come with the seed of an idea, and we’re the experts in helping you develop it from there, completely hassle-free.

We have a large range of glassware vases, candle votives, LED candles, table stands, structures for ceremonies, ceiling structure frames, and more. Talk to us about what you need.

Absolutely. At your final meeting, we’ll discuss every aspect of the day’s logistics, ensuring that your flowers are delivered at the desired time and location where you both are getting ready. We recommend having your flowers arrive before your photographer so they can capture the beauty when they arrive!

We work with a very select number of suppliers and growers with whom we’ve developed very special relationships over many years. We purchase only the best quality from both local and imported suppliers. Our main flower market days are Tuesday, Thursday and Saturdays.

Depending on the type of flower or colour variety, sometimes we have orders in four weeks in advance. We will always have our orders in a minimum 14 days before the wedding.

We have a large, incredibly trustworth team that we thoughtfully organise and coordinate. While we can create up to four weddings in a week during peak season, we do try to limit our bookings to two weddings per week where possible.

A 30% deposit locks in and confirms your booking with us. The balance can be paid in instalments with the total balance being due 14 days prior to your wedding.

Weekly corporate and café flower deliveries

Our main delivery days are Monday and Wednesday. Get in touch to discuss your options.

In general, we aim to have the flowers delivered before midday on Mondays and Wednesday. We can also try our very best to accommodate early morning requests. We encourage you to provide us with access using a swipe card or key so our team can set-up and have your florals in place before staff arrive.

While costs will vary depending on requirements and conditions, small coffee table florals start from $60/week + delivery with large foyer entrance arrangements from $350/week + delivery.

We thoughtfully create a different floral design and colour palette, and flower varieties will rotate each week to ensure a different and interesting arrangement of interest. We also provide the vases and these can be put on rotation also. We record what’s supplied each week, and love to hear your feedback on what you like and don’t like. We keep your feedback file so we can continue delivering you weekly displays that you adore!

We encourage your staff to take the florals out of the vase at the end of the week: Fridays if it is a Monday delivery, and Tuesdays if it is a Wednesday delivery. You might like to encourage your staff to take some home to enjoy. If you really want to get creative, try this: some businesses even do a raffle at the end of each week to auction off the arrangements to a lucky few!

Our team is made up of complete professionals. We can remove the old display and replace it with a new one, completely hassle-free. We’ll remove any mess and wipe the bench to ensure no spills on the floor. provide a smooth and easy deliver we recommend supplying us with a key or access card to access the building or office.

The flowers we select for you will last for 5-7days – sometimes longer!

Simply reach out online via our contact form. Provide your details and we’ll be in touch as soon as we can.

What are your payment terms, and can we set up an account?

Absolutely! The person/staff ordering the flowers must be listed as a nominated person on our credit application form. You can make changes to this at any time by contacting us to update your details. A purchase order and/or reference number for the order is preferred.
