Tesselaar Flowers “Top Gun” Wedding Flowers Competition has, over the course of just 3 years, become the world’s greatest wedding flowers competition. Wedding florists from all over Australia enter this friendly competition to show off their wedding flower skills. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of flower lovers and brides-to-be keenly follow along, browsing through the galleries, getting inspiration for their own weddings (and also finding the perfect wedding florist to contact and hire).

It’s been such a smash hit that we now have a team of people here at Tesselaars preparing for our 5th competition this October 2014. But before we get to the launch, let’s look back at some of the previous year’s entrants, starting with the Top 10 wedding flowers entries from the 2011 Wedding Flowers Competition, our very first competition.

7 Simple Ways Wedding Flowers Can Make Your Wedding Amazing (Without Breaking the Bank)

Posted on

No doubt you’ve seen countless magazine articles and blog posts about the top 10 ways you can save money on your wedding day….and invariably wedding flowers will be at the top of that list.

And yet when it comes to inexpensive, simple ways to make your wedding unique, wedding flowers really take the cake!

wedding flowers to make your wedding amazing

I, in no way, am going to push the agenda that you have to spend ‘X’ amount of dollars or percentage of your wedding budget on flowers, but I do believe that well-arranged, well-planned floral styling is one of the most important parts of your wedding decor budget, whatever that budget may be.

Wedding Flower Trends – Blush and Gold

Posted on

The most popular of the 2014 wedding flower trends is ‘Blush and Gold’. Here’s an Australian-seasons “available ingredients” list for building lush blush and gold bridal blooms.

No doubt the advent of Pinterest and Instagram  has meant that we are flooded with gorgeous, extremely stylized weddings, including wedding flowers.  In my opinion  the most popular of the wedding flower trends for this season (has been and) will be ‘Blush and Gold’.  Think super luxe florals – tall cascading floral arrangements as centrepieces, hanging floral installations, lush wedding bouquets with touches of gold on the foliage.  A little bit old fashioned, but very girly and very pretty.

Flower Beards – What’s With That?

Posted on

Check out these flower beards photos by Julia-rose using Tesselaar Flowers, featuring beard by Tommy Franklin of Australia’s Got Talent fame (think “Salty Rain”).

Flower beards are apparently a thing right now. I just checked out Google Trends and search volume for the trend has gone from non-existent to “a thing” just now in July.

I am going to be honest and say that, as a mildly bearded man – I find this flower beard trend ludicrous, but then again, I thoroughly approve of all things ludicrous so what the heck – bring on the flower beards! Seriously, I can see this trend really lasting a long time!

Now, the thing is, my opinion is but one in a giant sea of opinions, meany of them way more qualified to comment on the pros and cons of the weird and wacky flower beards trend, like Julia rose for example, who has just now sent me some fun, colourful couple of pics of her latest creation which is, you guessed it, all flower beardy-goodness!
