Choosing when to have your big day affects every aspect of how you want your ceremony to look and feel. Seasonal flowers give weddings the best of natural beauty and help you add a colorful touch to your big day. Each season has its own bouquet, from which you can select your perfect look.
In the summer time, flower choices are plentiful. You simply have to choose something that will best fit the feel of your ceremony without worrying too much about seasonal limitations. For example, if you are having an elegant evening affair, dahlias are an excellent choice. Those planning fun, afternoon weddings may benefit from the bold colors found in bluebonnets or snapdragons. Of course, roses are very traditional and work well in almost any setting. If you are looking for something that shouts “summer,” you cannot go wrong with large sunflowers.
In the fall, flower choices are not as versatile as in the summer. However, that does not mean you cannot have a beautiful bouquet. One versatile option is the amaryllis. It can be found in solid red, solid pink, white, or white with either red or pink accents. This makes it a wonderful option for the time of year. For those who want bolder color choice, violets are an exceptional flower. Of course, you can also substitute these plants with small pumpkins or gourds, which are plentiful in autumn.
As with the summer, spring weddings offer more floral options than the fall and winter. For those looking to add a sweet touch to their bouquet, daisies are a perfect choice. You do not have to worry about the right color, as they are easy to dye-this means you can match any color scheme! For a more elegant look, anemone is a good choice. This flower is very simple, yet elegant. However, one of the quintessential springtime flowers is, arguably, the tulip. This option comes in an array of colors, making it perfect for any wedding.
Of course, when it comes to winter, finding seasonal flowers might be a bit of a challenge. You do have a few options, however. For those who are getting married in December, the poinsettia is a wonderful option. The bold reds are synonymous with the season, while the brilliant whites add a touch of elegance to your bouquet. If you are looking for something a little more regal, calla lilies are an excellent choice and work well with a classy evening ceremony.
Many consider the winter drab and colorless, but you can change that perception by spicing up your bouquet with a splash of peonies. Of course, thanks to greenhouses, you can always choose roses if you want something more traditional regardless of season.
Choosing seasonal flowers for weddings can draw in the best parts of the season. With a little research and a lot of imagination, you can find the right style for your big day.
