Want to save money on your wedding flowers?

Here’s a quick tip to save money on your wedding flowers – buy seasonal flowers! If you purchase flowers for your wedding that are in season you pay MUCH less than what you would pay for flowers not in season. So what’s in season during your wedding?

Spring Flowers –  The most common wedding flowers in season for spring are: peony, forsythia, and lily of the valley. Please note, however, that the lily of the valley has a very short season around April/May and is one of the more expensive seasonal wedding flowers.

Summer Flowers – The most common wedding flowers in season for summer are: delphiniums, gladioli, columbine (aquilegia), and snapdragons.

Fall/Autumn Flowers –  The most common wedding flowers in season for fall/autumn are: dahlias, hydrangeas, and chrysanthemums. Chrysanthemums are available all year round, but their actual season is in the fall.

Winter Flowers – The most common wedding flowers in season for winter are: amaryllis, nerine, and cymbidium orchids.

According to www.wedding-flowers-guide.com , expect the best quality and lowest prices to be for seasonal wedding flowers that are in their normal flowering season. If you want a flower that should be available all year long, they recommend: roses, anthuriums, orchids, lilies, and gerberas (gerber daisies).
