Choosing Wedding Flowers by Season
In the United States, seasonal flowers will vary by region. After all, a winter growing season in Florida is different than a forced indoor season in upper Minnesota. Flowers native to the region will be more affordable and readily available.
Speaking with your wedding florist can help you identify the commonly used varieties of wedding flowers in your area of the country. You can also stop by Floral shops or nurseries to get information on different types of flowers.
Winter wedding flowers and greenery used in bouquets and décor might include:
Special attention is often paid to Christmas wedding bouquets and arrangements, using deep red and green velvets for tying the stems. Poinsettias make cheap centerpieces at the reception.
Love and flowers both bloom in the spring. Be sure to let your florist know whether or not you want your flower heads to be blooming. Different arrangement effects can be created by using blooming or closed flowers.
Blossoms (cherry, pear, apple)
Summer often brings the most weddings and the biggest choice of flowers for brides-to-be. Summer wedding flowers include:
Lilies (Calla, Casablanca, Lily of the Valley)
Fall foliage is frequently used in arrangements and bouquets, especially in the Midwest and Northeast. The rich oranges, reds and yellows of the fallen leaves make a perfect background for fall wedding flowers. Choices of flowers might include:
Grains and fruits also make appearances in fall wedding floral arrangements for greater variety and a seasonal harvest connection.
Additional Seasonal Flower Information
Many flowers are available year round in most parts of the country. Forced bulbs, roses, lilies and stephanotis are just a few. Tropical flowers and other out-of-season flowers can be shipped almost anywhere.
To save money and use flowers that are not in season, you can always use silk wedding flowers in your bouquets and arrangements. Wedding florists often have large selections of high quality faux flowers for this purpose.
