Your Guide to Wedding Flowers by Season
Having a green thumb is a special skill that some are gifted with from birth. Whether or not you receive that gift is a total toss-up, but you do have control of how much you know about the secret world of florals.
Ok, so maybe it’s not so secret, but when it comes to not breaking the bridal bank, that knowledge can be your secret weapon. Shipping in certain blooms that aren’t in season or can’t grow locally can cause a list of fees that add up fast. By brushing up on your flower know-how and keeping a finger on the petal pulse, you’ll be able to keep costs down and ensure the look you want.
To help you out, we broke down the seasons in terms of when your favorite buds are blooming. And if you're worried there won't be any options for your wedding month, don't. There are so many, it's ranunculus. (We'll be here all week.)
