Choosing the Right Seasonal Wedding Flowers

Spring Wedding Flowers

You’ll have the pick of the most colorful and beautiful blooms if you get married in spring.

Lily of the Valley

Lily of the Valley

A look that is timelessly elegant, exquisite, and effortlessly stylish can be achieved with these delicate white blooms. This flower is perfect for a more natural bouquet style. This is for the wedding seeking a casual organically free-flowing vibe.  


Tulips are great for a clean, modern aesthetic, and they come in all types of colors and sizes to match your wedding theme. They are the perfect way to add an element of elegance before you walk down the aisle! Tulips can make for a stunning choice when it comes to picking out your wedding flowers.


The lilac is a springtime classic that offers a vivid purple hue in flower arrangements for May weddings.  


Purple, pink, and white hyacinths are similar to lilacs in shape, and their height makes them great for spring centerpieces.  


A member of the buttercup family, ranunculus looks great in country-style gardens. An arrangement of ranunculus says, ‘I’m in awe of your beauty’.


This pop of color is perfect for a modern bridal trousseau. The simple blue and white star shapes on these preppy blooms make us want to fall in love with them. They also come in lavender colors, light blue, and purple.


There’s nothing like a peony to brighten up your big day, but sadly they don’t grow for long. It’s only available mid-Spring to a few lucky couples.  

Sweet Pea 

Sweet peas don’t just come in pinks and peaches. They also come in browns and purples.  


That’s hard to say, but it’s pretty to look at. The colors of an anemone range from scarlet to purple, white, lilac, and pink, with the striking contrast of black and green centers completing the vintage look.

Summer Wedding Flowers

Since summer flowers have to withstand more heat, they’re naturally a bit harder. Summer flowers are also great for weddings because of their resilience. Summer wedding flowers are incredibly vibrant, flexible, and absolutely gorgeous, from wildflower arrangements to garlands of marigolds.  


A summer wedding with delphiniums is more lavish and elegant. Also available in various colors, they’ll give your wedding venue a classic look!

Calla Lily 

This flower is great for boutonnieres, and it blooms in early summer. With its sleek, long stems, this floral is perfect for glamorous celebrations.  


It’s a good idea to use these fun flowers for your bridesmaid bouquets since they symbolize togetherness and kindness. From pistachio green to raspberry pink, these flowers complement each bridesmaid’s style and individuality.


This funnel-shaped flower is perfect for brides who want something elegant. White blooms like these would look fabulous mixed with tulips in a bouquet.


Hydrangeas are known for their vivid colors, so use them for pomanders. The perfect way to embellish your pew ends or hang pomanders for your flower girls.

Fall Wedding Flowers

Keep in mind color cues and in-season foliage to make your wedding stand out during the wedding season’s true golden hour.


Marigolds look great as backdrops for late summer and early fall celebrations, especially when strung into garlands.  


Dahlias are a great choice if you want your flowers to stand out. It only takes a few to wow your loved ones at a vibrant wedding and to make a statement.


Since amaranthus hangs down rather than standing up, it’s great for cascading bridal bouquets.  


For edgier brides who want to stand out, poppies are a great option. For a glamorous red wedding theme, their romantic red color is a perfect match.

Winter Wedding Flowers

You’ll have limited choices in terms of floral variety when you get married in winter, but you’ll be able to make your wedding unforgettable with what’s in season. 


Flowers like amaryllis add a touch of class to your big day. They come in soft shades of coral, pink, white, and more.


With stunning shades like burgundy, eggplant, beige, and mauve, they can stand out in large bouquets and look great in jewel-tone arrangements.

Berried Ivy

For a spectacular Great Gatsby-themed celebration, berried ivy is a sheer delight. Add antique birdcages and pearls to make it really stunning.

Pussy Willow

Put pussy willow centerpieces to work for your winter wonderland wedding. Make an unforgettable impression with a breathtaking all-white wedding theme.
