Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter; no matter the season, wedding bells are ringing. But have you ever thought about choosing your wedding date based on the flowers and the season they bloom? There are so many varieties of flowers but by choosing a flower in its prime season can save you money and stress! I want to share with you flowers based on the four seasons in order to help brides choosing their wedding date based on your dream floral selection, or help them choose the flowers that will be in season for the date you have already selected.
Let’s start with Summer “They say when you marry in June your are bride all your life” Summer weddings can be a go to season for many brides. It is also a great time for many flowers. Summer is a warmer season and several floral varieties are options for the brides special day.
Summer flowers: Hydrangeas, Roses, Lilies, Daisies, Freesia, Larkspur, Delphinium (Blue) Callas, orchids, David Austin Roses, Garden Roses and if early summer than peonies are in full bloom.
Moving on into fall, the weather can be a little more cooler and less likely for rain which is why everyone in the south is saying that October is the new June for weddings! The fall months can be harder to get those Juliet David Austin roses that everyone on Pinterst is talking about as well as peonies that are the go to flower for weddings but there are many other beautiful flowers that are in season.
Fall flowers: Dahlias, Other verities of Garden Roses, Silver brunia, stock flower, scabiosa pods, ranunculus, all types of greenery, viburnum berries,m kangaroo paws, astilbe, veronica and hypericum berries, to name a few.
Winter, winter is an interesting season because there can be more selections of flowers available because will the south is heading into their colder months, central america is starting their warmer months.
Winter Flowers: Amaryllis, Gerber Daisy, Ranunculus, roses, tulips, gardenias, hydrangeas (They are slightly smaller, but the colors such as antique and purples are beautiful!), anemones.
Spring, more rain for us in the south, but there is still a large selection for flowers! This is the season for Peonies, so if they are a must have than you need to plan your wedding in the spring months.
Spring Flowers: Delphinium, Cymbidium Orchids, Peonies, roses, sweet peas, anemones, Lisianthus, baby’s breath, Tulips, and Lilac
These are just a few of the main flowers blooming in their primary seasons. Be sure to research and talk with your florist about the availability before having your heart set on one kind of flower. Be open for creativity and watch your wedding blossom. Happy planning!
