Take Your Wedding to the Next Level with These On-Trend Floral Ideas

Take Your Wedding to the Next Level with These On-Trend Floral Ideas

With all the stunning wedding floral ideas circulating social media recently, it becomes so difficult to really hone in on what style of arrangements you are wanting to showcase on your wedding day.

We’ve compiled a mood board displaying some examples of beautiful on trend floral ideas for you to consider for your big day!

Suspended flowers

Take advantage of space in your venue by filling the air with greenery and florals! One of the great perks of having suspended florals is you ensure the guests have clear vision of each other when conversing across the table, as well as leaving enough space for plates and crockery. For a more dramatic look, add a greenery garland down the middle of the table!

Floral cocktails

Integrating your focal flower of choice is a beautiful and subtle way to ensure really gorgeous synergy. Edible flowers are very on-trend at the moment and they provide a beautiful photo opportunity for guests! It is definitely one of those small details that your guests will not forget!

Napkin florals

It’s all in the details! Napkin décor is a beautiful way to really tie the entire table styling together. It really helps to fill in the blanks and make for gorgeous photography. Experiment with twine, ribbon, shapes, and your flower of choice!

Single stem florals

For a minimalist style aesthetic, consider single stem florals in plain bottles/votives/stem holders, with neat, complimentary candles. Simple, clean styling like this allows the guests attention to be shared amongst the beauty of the focal floral, as well as a statement piece elsewhere (eg the entertainment, lighting).

Colour me crazy!

By adding a pop of colour to your wedding, it can really portray a feeling of vibrancy. Experiment and take the bold move of adding LOTS of colour! It is a sure way of really bringing the venue to life and making the entire room feel electric.

Make it green!

For a timeless and organic feeling wedding, adding greenery to your tables and surroundings is a beautiful way to really tie in your celebrations with nature. It is an aesthetic that will never go out of fashion, will never age, and will forever feel magical. Add in hurricane candles and warm fairy lighting to really enhance the romance.

Happy planning!

10 Things Your Wedding Stylist Wishes You Knew

Whether you are considering hiring a wedding stylist for your big day, or you are already working with one, these expert tips should make the entire process just that little bit smoother for everyone!

1. It’s okay to use Pinterest!

Wedding stylists will likely show you their look books, Instagram feeds and portfolios when you meet with them to discuss the aesthetics of your special day. We want you to know that you do NOT need to choose something specifically from these look books! They are simply there as a guide to get your creative juices flowing. It is more than okay to come to us with inspiration from Pinterest, Instagram, etc. We welcome any and every form of inspiration!

2. Your inspiration photos have been heavily edited

A lot of the photos you have found inspiration in have likely been photoshopped, edited and heavily filtered. We can absolutely replicate your inspiration photos, however the overall look on the day will probably end up looking a little bit different than those, simply because of the editing that has been used on them (eg colour enhancement, exposure/brightness/contrast changes, etc). Please keep in mind that social media is heavily curated to fit a particular dreamy aesthetic, and reality will look slightly different to that.

3. Think about your photos and the overall wedding day look!

Always keep in mind the theme, vibe and aesthetics of the overall look – not just the individual items you want. It is very easy to get caught up in each and every little possibility you can possibly choose for your wedding day… from donut walls and lit up letters, to charger plates and coloured cutlery. Generally speaking, there are many incredible items that can all be put together when its done in the right way, however sometimes it can be overdone and therefore become way too ‘busy’. This is what a wedding stylist can help you with. We can help you visualise the overall look of your wedding day and rein in all the extras to make sure the synergy is perfect!

4. Consider the environment!

Please always keep the environment in your thoughts when contemplating certain aspects of your decorations. For example, the petal toss in your ceremony. A lot of couples reach for confetti, however this is terrible for the environment and quite often completely banned from a lot of venues, especially those beside the ocean. There are some awesome biodegradable options if you are looking for a more budget friendly alternative to petals for your petal cones/toss!

5. DIY is great, but it isn’t as cheap or as easy as it seems.

Doing your own styling for your wedding is great, however it can very quickly become incredibly expensive, stressful and time consuming. Some brides like to feel like they want to be more involved with the creation of their aesthetics and quite often may hand make their own wedding favours or stationary, however when it comes to centrepieces, table cloths, napkins, furniture, cutlery, glass wear, candles, votives, and even setting up on the day, it will definitely end up being more cost effective for you to reach out to a stylist to work with you! Another thing to keep in mind when considering your DIY wedding decorations, is what you will do with all that stock after the wedding, as well as logistics of getting it to and from the venue and set up, on the day.

6. Fake flowers don’t look fake anymore!!

Real touch florals are exactly that… real touch! They look and feel SO REAL you will be leaning in to smell them yourselves. No one will ever be able to know the difference, so for the difference in price tag, it is worth considering real touch florals for your ceremony and reception! A lot of brides opt for real flowers through their florist for the bouquet’s and lapel’s, but then choose real touch for their decorations.

For weddings here in the Whitsundays, it is very important to consider the heat, humidity and weather when deciding on florals for your wedding day. These factors are enough to make flowers wilt, droop, and burn very quickly. Often in a set up, your florist will make sure they set up at the perfect time to prevent this from happening to the flowers, however it is always something to keep in mind for your decision process!

7. Candles will blow out if you don’t have glass cylinders surrounding them!

This may seem like a very obvious point to make, however there have been countless times brides have expected no glass cylinders to be surrounding their candles and have been disappointed to find out they cannot possibly achieve that desired look! Please keep in mind inspiration photos online showing open flame candles outdoors have been specifically taken and edited for that particular photo. To achieve a burning flame the entire wedding, the candle will need protection from wind.

8. Tell us any styling items you are bringing yourself

Sometimes brides don’t want to tell their stylist they are bringing their own decorations due to not wanting to offend them. We want our brides to understand that we won’t ever be offended, we just need to know what is being added to the overall aesthetic so that we can make it work into what we have going visually for you! If you plan on bringing anything extra, eg photo frames, props, games, wedding favours, cutlery, place cards, menus, etc. please discuss that with your wedding stylist so they know whether they need to bring anything else to accommodate those things (eg an extra table and linen), as well as being able to let you know if it will all fit on the table due to venues having specific and personalised table dimensions.

9. On your wedding day, have an open mind.

On the day of the wedding, there is always the possibility that something may come up that prevents a certain aspect of your styling to be changed or completely removed. For example, if it is incredibly windy and you have chosen a very light weight arbour, it may require extra weights and/or reinforcements to keep it from blowing away. Alternatively, we may need to completely replace the arbour with a similar looking, more sturdy arbour. Unfortunately weather is just one of those things that cannot always be perfectly predicted and alternatives may need to come into the equation. Of course during the decision making process, the bride will be kept in the loop, however we ask that our brides trust in us and keep an open mind on the day, as complications such as this may arise! On the day we will do everything in our power to keep things as per what we have discussed, but if we do need to change anything, please know it will only be done if it absolutely must be done.

10. Trust us!

Sometimes it can be very hard to let go and completely trust a stranger to successfully bring together the entire visual aspect of the day you have been dreaming about your whole life… we totally get it! However, we want you to know that here at TeepeEvents & Styling, we live and breathe all things wedding and all things beautiful. We have the same goal as you, and not meeting the brief is not an option. On top of this, we know the venues very well and what will work. Whether you live locally to your wedding venue & stylist, or on the other side of the world, communication is key and we are only ever a call/email away.

Planning and styling a wedding with the help of a stylist is so much fun! There are endless possibilities in terms of bringing the wedding to a new level visually, and it should help relieve a lot of the pressures and stresses that arise in doing it all yourself. In saying this, we hope these little pointers help give some insight into a few important things that you should keep in mind along the way.

Happy planning!

Do I Need a Wedding Stylist?

Close your eyes and picture your wedding day. Standing at the alter with the love of your life… the perfect moment. What do you notice around you? What colours do you see? What is the general vibe of the venue? How do you hope the aesthetic makes your guests feel? All these questions are what we as stylists aim to help you answer to bring your dream vision to life.

Lets face it, planning a wedding is hard work! There are so many little things to consider about the aesthetic of your wedding day. Flowers, colour palettes, textures, patterns, seating, signage, stationary, backdrops, furniture, crockery, linen and many, MANY more seemingly small specifics. This is what a stylist does. We focus on all the aesthetic aspects of your special day. We can either work with you closely from start to finish (concept to completion), or simply be there to be the extra set of hands on the day to set up your own beautiful DIY creations.

Lets talk about why you might need a stylist to help you with decorating your special day:

  • If you simply cannot wrap your head around the concept of decorating, are really struggling with the creative aspects and have no clear vision, it might be time to look to the professionals!
  • If you want it all! There are just so many little bits and pieces from every wedding you’ve seen, and you want to incorporate it all! But how? Lets work it all out and give you some clarity.
  • You have no idea where to start, where to finish, and anything & everything in between. We’ve got you!
  • You have it all sorted, but you just need that extra set of hands to set up on the day. Here we are.


  • A wedding stylist will sit down and take the time to get to know you and your partner. We help you uncover the exact style and look you are after, talking you through each and every little inclusion and how that will help tell the story of your relationship.
  • Weddings are personal, they are beautiful, and they hold SO much love… they shouldn’t be overly stressful and overwhelming! Hiring a stylist can help take so much of that stress and anxiety off your hands.
  • A wedding stylist will take your wedding to a whole new level aesthetically. We make your wedding one to remember – with gorgeous bespoke pieces hand crafted with intention and love. No vision is too big or small!
  • We can create or purchase pieces of art that personally and specifically reflect you and your partners personalities and love story.
  • We already have all the inventory, so you don’t need to worry about what to do with all the stock after the wedding!
  • We give you creative direction and clarity. Its very easy to get overwhelmed with all the possibilities styling a wedding brings!
  • We make sure you don’t waste your money on things that wont work with the overall look, whilst helping you make the absolute most of your budget. Sometimes its easy to get swept away in the “ooo I want this! I’d love that!” but when too many different things come together, it can throw off the synergy of the wedding… we ensure that doesn’t happen!

  • It’s cost effective! By doing DIY, buying in all brand new decorations yourself gets very expensive, very quickly!
  • Here at TeepeEvents & Styling we keep on top of all trends, from modern colour palettes used in floral arrangements, to those instaworthy fabrics for your napkins and tablecloths.
  • DIY wedding styling is very stressful, so hiring a stylist will relieve a lot of that stress and pressure, whilst helping create a blanket of calm knowing that everything is being completely taken care of, from creation to completion.
  • We know the venues very well and work very closely with the venue operators, so we know what styling possibilities work and what doesn’t. We also take into consideration things like weather and wind. Here in the Whitsundays there are certain venues that experience more wind than others, which make certain styling choices impossible. By having knowledge of these things, we are able to work closely with our brides & grooms to find alternatives and solutions to make their designs work! This is something a lot of couples don’t always think about before hand with their DIY styling and it can unfortunately leave them disappointed on the day if it doesn’t work out the way they had hoped and dreamt about.

  • Finding the right suppliers can be a really daunting and difficult task. Wedding stylists work with multiple different vendors every single day, so we are the perfect people to consult with to find the perfect fit for you! This will save you hours of research and potential disappointment! We will never recommend a vendor that doesn’t align with your brief.
  • A stylist will set up on your big day and make sure all the creative aspects are all in line and perfect. All the stress is off your shoulders!
  • The entire overall look of the wedding, from pre ceremony to sparkler exit, is completely intentional and very well thought out. From the texture of your table cloths, to the slight fragrance of your candles setting the mood, to the particular shine of the paper choice for your menus, to the way each and every single rose head are pointing on your arbour. Every single decision has been made with intention to successfully and synergistically tell your love story.
  • Putting together a design brief is one thing, but successfully bringing that brief to life and making sure it is executed beautifully is another. This is our profession and this is what we are so incredibly passionate about. Here at TeepeEvents & Styling, execution and delivery of exquisite aesthetics is what we live and breathe.

The entire styling process for your big day should be an exciting and seamless journey. If you are looking for some extra creative direction, or just an extra set of hands, we welcome you to get in touch with us! We cannot wait to discuss your vision and bring your dream day to life.

Naked Grazing

Naked Grazing

This week, TeepeEvents Whitsunday, Peach & Pear Catering and Total Entertainment got together to put on a very special event for our fellow industry peeps.

The scene was set at the beautiful Cane Cutters Cottage in Woodwark under our large naked teepee.  A gorgeous grazing table was there for all to enjoy and with the smooth sounds from a number of talented artists from Total Entertainment we were set for a great evening.  Its not often we all get to just hang out, especially with wedding season in full swing, so it was especially nice to showcase our products and enjoy them at the same time.

Big thanks to Lauren from Infinite Potential Photography, Suzette and Adrian from Cane Cutters Cottage, Kenny, from Mobile Event Hire and  Beautiful Beach Weddings Whitsundays, IdoEvents and Flower Hut Whitsundays for help with bits and pieces for styling.  Click  Gallery for more photos of the amazing day.
