I love the cool fresh shades of blue in these Beach wedding flowers for a November wedding held on Mellon’s Bay, Auckland. The bride chose a fresh palette of Peonies, Delphiniums, Roses, Sweet peas, Cornflowers and Freesias in sea blues, greens and white hues.

Tips for Choosing Beach Wedding Flowers
Wedding Flower Selection
Depending on the time of year, it is important to select the flowers that will stay fresh throughout the ceremony and reception. Direct sunlight and summer heat can cause your wedding flowers to wilt easily.
The best-suited blooms for a summer beach wedding are orchids, chrysanthemums, Calla lilies, hydrangeas and Oriental lilies. Native South African and Australian flowers and foliage like Proteas, Pincushions, Leucodendrons and Banksia are currently trendy and are heat and sun resistant.
For an exotic island feel, add plenty of lush tropical foliage like Monstera and palm leaves with colourful tropical flowers such as Anthuriums, Birds of Paradise (Strelitzia), orchids and Heliconia (Lobster Claw). These withstand heat, sun and wind and are ideal for beach settings.
If your beach wedding is in spring or autumn, you can use most flower varieties.
Add a few beach-themed accents like seashells, sea urchins, starfish and pearls to your flower bouquets and table centrepieces.
The beach provides the perfect background, so keep the decor simple and add touches of colour to contrast the beautiful natural coastal surroundings.
Flower Preparation and Maintenance
A floral hydration protective spray applied to wedding flowers helps maximize their freshness and keep them looking their best.
I recommend having the wedding flowers delivered on the day of the wedding just before the photographer arrives.
Place the bouquets in water in a cool area to keep the flowers fresh and hydrated.
Recycle Your Flowers
Reuse your ceremony flower arrangements by having them moved to your reception area.
Place the bridesmaid’s bouquets in pretty vases or mason jars and use as table centrepieces on the bridal or cake tables.
