It’s no secret that certain colors and types of flowers work well with different seasons so our hope is to shed a bit of insight as to how to select your florals based on the season. But remember – your wedding should fit you and your partner’s personalities and we promise you can make anything work, regardless of the time of year!
Who doesn’t go crazy for pastel colors in the spring? The spring season yields some beautiful blooms, so couples have quite a bit of variety from which to choose! We love the mix of pinks and purples for this bright and cheery time of year and it never hurts to add some greens to bring out the true spirit of the season.
Our suggestions: Peonies, lilacs, orchids, garden roses, ranunculuses, hydrangeas, tulips, baby’s breath
We love summer florals that pop – yellows, blues, purples – you name it! Mixing in white flowers is a great way to keep a bouquet light and airy for this sunny season.
Our suggestions: Gerberas, poppies, roses, sweet peas, chrysanthemums, asters, dahlias
Autumn colors make us swoon – we can’t help it! There’s something about the deep oranges, pinks, and reds that just make us giddy. Another reason we’re head over heels for fall? It’s harvest time! Apples, berries, and other fruits often make a guest appearance in fall wedding florals to honor the season.
Our suggestions: Asiatic lilies, calla lilies, dahlias, celosia/cockscomb, brassica, garden roses, fruits
We admit it – we couldn’t decide on our favorite winter wedding style! While we are hooked on the thought of wine reds, purples, and holly berries making up your winter florals, there’s just something we love about a classic white or ivory bouquet in winter (whether you’re marrying in the snow or not!). Want to add a little something to your white flowers? Succulents are a gorgeous way to dress up your bouquet without straying from the classic look you’re going for!
Our suggestions: Orchids, roses, ranunculuses, amaryllis, protea, narcissus, succulents, holly berries
Note: Just a reminder that these are suggestions to inspire you! There are so many possibilities for your wedding florals, so the best rule of thumb is just to be yourself!
