- How soon do I need to place my wedding order before my wedding date?
Normally you need to place your wedding order about 3 – 6 months. If your wedding date is over a year away, that is fine for ordering, as bouquet will keep in box provided in a dark place.
- How long can bouquets be kept before my wedding?
If you store your bouquets in the box and tissue paper provided away from the light, they should keep indefinitely.
- Do you offer payment plans if I can’t afford to pay for the complete package up front?
Yes, please contact us for more information about our lay-by terms. Lay-by orders commence from $150.
- Are there other packages apart from what is available on your website?
We do customized orders that suit your needs, so contact us with what you have in mind.

- Customized Orders…
FJ Flowers specialises in customized orders to suit your wedding needs. We try our best to make every bouquet ordered to the photo’s shown. However, as silk flowers are produced in large quantities at factories, when boxes are opened sometimes stems maybe different. Therefore, no two bouquets are the same, but we do try to design as close as possible to the photo’s shown.
- Lost in post…
FJ Flowers takes extreme care in packing your flowers so they should arrive in the condition sent. We take no responsibility if packages are externally damaged or lost in transit. If flowers have been damaged inside the box from external transit damage, please contact us. We will follow up the postage on request and do our utmost to find any order that goes missing.
- Wrong colour?…
We don’t accept refunds due to wrong colour selection. Some flower samples are available, please contact us. Colours of products may vary on different computers so we do advise you to contact us regarding flower samples for correct colour matches before ordering your package.
- How long does it usual take to ship?…
Individual flowers, sale items and small corsage/buttonhole orders: (Refers to 1 – 2 corsage/buttonholes ONLY). Approx. 3 – 5 days after ordering with available stock. If the required flowers aren’t available, please allow up to 30 days.
All wedding orders: please read the Help Section for more information.
- My package didn’t arrive on time…
Please allow 3 – 6 weeks after final payment for delivery of order. It is not our responsibility due to shortage of time, ie 1 day – a week before wedding, if items don’t arrive.
- Refund Policy…
Every bride chooses her own package in fine detail, therefore no one else can use the same order, so please choose carefully.
We do not give refunds on individual items, customer alterations, wrong colour choices and wedding orders if you simply change your mind, relationship circumstances or make a wrong selection. Please be aware, there is no refund on sale and clearance items.
Regardless, we would usually be accommodating if the individual order, (not buttonholes, corsages, bouquets or wedding packages) is substantial enough to outweigh the additional postage costs you would need to cover for the return and replacement order.
- Your privacy…
All customer information is kept confidential.

what our customers are saying...
“We received our wedding flowers from you in the mail yesterday and such a wonderful EARLY surprise! I wasn’t expecting them for a couple more weeks. Needless to say, I sat in the carpark ripping that box open and it’s tissue paper to reveal my absolutely delightful Bridal Bouquet. I must admit I had a fear that they might show up looking like my Nanna’s dusty bouquets in her home, but they are gorgeous. Nice big fat flowers and wrapped elegantly with the ribbon showing off the ‘fresh cut stems’ :)
The mens buttonhole flowers are each perfect and a great size too. It’s so far from a florist out here and in the warm September weather, it just wasn’t going to be worth the hassle, cost or disappointment of wilted flowers. Thank you very much! I cannot wait to put them to use at our wedding and then to keep them forever after.”
