I’d be in touch with the florist again- I was actually thinking I need to clarify delivery times with my florist as I forgot to get the flowers to the boys before the photos. Oops! Maybe just let her know the photographer’s times? I guess you could even do something like ‘if temp is below 30 degrees (or whatever), please deliver on the waty to the venue. In the case of extreme heat, a later delivery time of (on the way home) would be preferable’… that way you are letting her be a profressional and you are also covering yourself in case of stress?? Or is that overthinking it?

And yep, I’m a Melb bride too (January wedding)…Melbourne hasn’t really had spring yet- hopefully Summer arrives soon!

Definitely contact the florist and mention when pictures start. Specify that you need certain things by an exact time for pictures – the guys should have their bouts, you’ll probably want your bouquet, etc. If she’s not ready to give you an exact time on the phone, tell her you’d like one by XX date so there’s no ambiguity. Maybe she could drop off the things that are imporant for pictures first and then bring the centerpieces later.

My florist arrived an hour before the photographers did, that’s just how she likes to do it! It seemed to work out perfectly!
