Blooming Schedules for your favorite wedding flowers

Know what month your wedding flowers are available can be a valuable savings. In addition  you won’t have the disappointment of knowing that the flowers you expected aren’t available to you. Getting flowers in season are more affordable and can be the difference in staying in budget.

 

Here are some popular wedding flowers listed by the months they are in season or in bloom. This post is written as a guide for using live flowers, but if you are using silk or other artificial florals you can use this as a guide to keep the type of flowers you use in your bouquets and the rest of your wedding day flowers in season as well.

Some other flower 101 tips
Tulips best quality and pricing is in February.
Lilacs are in season in the spring – don’t expect them in other seasons.
Hydrangeas are in season during the summer – inferior blooms at other times.
Gardenias will brown very easily from contact.
Callas are sensitive to cold temperatures and can suffer from frost damage. They have good heat tolerance and retain moisture well. (commonly seen in Florida weddings)
Lily of the valley can be very expensive and availability is usually limited to May.
Stephanotis is extremely delicate.
