Expert Advice

As a wedding professional, Moss Lane offers expert advice to help couples plan their perfect day. Ask a question or read their expert advice.


What can I do with my wedding flowers (bouquets and centrepieces) after my wedding day?

It seems like such a waste.

Lots of things! 2020 has brought out the innovative creative in everyone, and I've seen some fantastic out-of-the-box ideas to not let your flowers go to waste!

  • Wrapping station | Moss Lane has been providing a wrapping station option since we began. This way your guests can take home the beutifully wrapped flowers as wedding favours.
  • Presssed/ Resin art | Flowers from your bouquet can be pressed or laid out beautifully and preserved into resin to make jewelry, wall art, photo frames or even phone cases (my personal favourite) .
  • Silk dying | Use your wedding day flowers to colour a silk scarf or shirt- and make a beautiful and timeless memento. You can either attempt it yourself, or do a google search to find an experienced Dexter.
  • Wax candles | Preserve some of them and make your own candles with the petals
  • Donations | We also offer donation programs, where the flowers are delivered by us to Hospitals and Nursing Homes- a beautiful and ethical choice. 

Is there a business that can install a massive floral ceiling installation?

Hi everyone, I need a business that can help make my dream wedding come true, I want a HUGE hanging floral ceiling installation with chandeliers in my venue on my dancefloor. I haven't chosen my venue aswell, as I don't know which venues will allow for this. I want to supply my own faux flowers and chandeliers.

Most venues will allow for ceiling installs so long as it is done in a safe manner and the company installing it is insured. Large scale floral installs may require external companies (other than your florist/you) to help piece it together. However, it can get expensive as it is very labour intensive. Your best option would be to contact your venue. 

Best of luck, Moss Lane x

Ideas for hanging foliage or chandelier on a budget?

Hi There! We are looking for a big hanging foliage chandelier for the reception venue. However, all the quotes I've received so far are between $1000-$2000 which is out of budget... I was wondering whether you know anyone who could do this in Melbourne? Or other options other than a foliage chandelier maybe? Thanks heaps!

Go the Silk floral route! Hiring silk florals is usually about half the price of fresh florals, depending on the design and labour. Silks are a popular alternative we offer to our brides on a budget- and we actually recommend them for ceiling or hanging installs for two reasons- they can actually look better and its less labour intensive. 

Best of luck, Moss Lane x

If it's going to be 40 degrees on my wedding day, what kinds of flowers should I have?

Hey there, 

Choosing an expriened florist is pretty important, as they should take your wedding season weather into consideration, and give you alternatives if they know the weather is heating up.

Apart from taking standard flower care (keeping it the fridge, putting bouquets in water as soon as possible etc), using silk florals where possible is a great alternative.

As a general rule, in hot weather I suggest using silk flowers where they are unlikely to be touched (think wedding arch, hanging installations, elevated peices etc) and using fresh flowers if they are likely to be handled. 

No matter how much you can prepare for a hot day, unless you are willing to go to extreme lengths (such as carrying an esky with you to keep the flowers in) they heat will impact them. Choosing a selection of natives would be the most fool proof choice, as they are used to the hot conditions are are very hardy. Other alternatives, which are making a trend are already dried arrangements, or a mixture of both.

Good luck!
