Wedding Flowers for Your Season

A Seasonal Guide for Your Wedding

Flowers can really set the tone for your wedding. Daisies and sunflowers displayed in mason jars and silver pitchers reflect a casual and cheerful event, while white roses perched on a candelabra exude elegance.

Sunflowers in Mason Jars

If the wedding flowers you choose are out of season, you could be paying a premium price. Take a little time to explore your options, and then decide if having a pink peony in December is really a deal breaker for your primary flower choice.
