When it comes to battling Singapore’s weather, speaking to your florist will help alleviate the uncertainty you’re feeling about flowers wilting. For example, Gerbera daisies need full sun to grow so they’d be right at home in our tropical weather. Other examples of blooms that thrive in the summer heat would be carnations, lilies and (of course) sunflowers.
Upon speaking to your florist, you’d get a much clearer idea of what kind of flowers work best for your big day or which flowers are in season and which are not. The end product may not always turn out to be exactly what you envisioned but hey, life ain’t alway a bed of roses. Mini thorns are to be expected once in a while. Let’s not have it rain on your parade, it is your big day after all!
