One particularly important part of making your floral selections is to consider the season. In fact, choosing your flowers based on the season can actually wind up not only saving you money, but making the whole planning process easier. Many brides even use the season that they are having their wedding as an overall theme for their big day.
If you are planning a winter wedding, you might feel like you have less options to work with. However, using festive plants like holly bushes with bright red berries and poinsettias can work really well to add a little extra glam to your big day. Roses are almost always in season and are a classic selection for many brides. You could even combine bold red roses with striking white lilies for a perfectly seasonal flower arrangement!
Spring weddings are just around the corner! Spring weddings are great for floral arrangements because flower types are hardly in short supply. Many spring brides select blooms in pastel colors, with lilies and tulips being particularly popular options. Consider arrangements of bushy pink peonies and yellow roses for an arrangement that is beautifully suited for spring.
After spring comes summer! Summer weddings is a great time to go bold with hues that mimic the setting sun and flashy fuchsia. Popular summer blooms include poppies, billy balls, amaranthus, calla lilies and hydrangeas, among many others!
One of the go-to blooms for fall weddings is the dahlia. Select flowers in richer hues for a fall occasion such as zesty tangerine or vibrant coral. These colors are a great way to go bolder without risking having your big day look like its Halloween-themed.
