Wedding Flowers Based on Season

One way to save money on your wedding flowers is to choose stems that are in-season. Each season has a wide selection of just-bloomed flowers to choose from to make up a gorgeous wedding bouquet.

Keep in mind that just because certain flowers bloom in specific seasons, that doesn’t mean you can’t use it in a different season. If you love dahlias but want to get married in the spring, florists have ways of obtaining specific flowers. However, the cost may go up due to locating and shipping the stems to Ohio. Therefore, if you have a favorite flower, you may want to consider it’s season when choosing your wedding date.

Spring is one of our favorites seasons for a wedding. It’s all about rebirth and new beginnings – very symbolic for a new marriage! The weather is just starting to warm up, but it’s not so hot that your guests will be running to the powder room to freshen up every hour. Pastel colors are popular, though you can also play with bright, vibrant, and playful palettes, too! The popular wedding stems below will be blooming during the spring.

  • peony
  • ranunculus
  • lilac
  • lisianthus
  • tulip
  • calla lily
