Wedding Flowers – A Seasonal Guide for Your Wedding

Sunflowers Mason Jars

Sunflowers and Daisies

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.

If the flower you choose for your wedding is 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.

    I love how you have listed the flowers by season. My daughter is getting married in the next few months, and I will be sure to give her this list.

      A majority of weddings include flowers of some sort, whether fresh, silk or dried. You can spend a minimal amount on flowers, or the sky can be the limit and you can douse your reception site in thousands of roses like the weddings.
