If you want to have fresh flowers on your wedding day, go for seasonal blooms only.

That may mean making some compromises if you have your heart set on a particular type of flower as some popular flowers are only available in certain seasons.

But there are so many beautiful blooms to choose from, there is bound to be something seasonal that wiill fit perfectly with your theme and wedding budget.

Wedding Flowers by Season

Of course, many flowers are available all year round either through cultivation under glass or via import from other countries. But this comes at a cost.

The cheapest way to obtain the best wedding flowers is still to buy locally and choose what is in season.

Luckily, popular flowers like orchids, roses, lilies and gerberas or daisies are available pretty much all year.

Spring Wedding Flowers

Spring brings forth a burst of color and gorgeous bulbs spring into life like colorful daffodils and tulips.

The latter look stately, soft and serene and almost need no other accompanying flower or foliage, as seen in this simple bouquet.

Other popular spring flowers are expensive peonies and the equally expensive lily of the valley, revered for its wonderful scent.

See our list of flowers by season for more spring flower ideas.

Summer Wedding Flowers

Summer is the most popular time for getting married, not least because the weather is usually more predictable.

The widest choice of flowers comes in summer in all shapes, sizes and colors from sweet scented freesias to vibrant fuschias, sweet peas and the coveted Calla lily.

Roses are highly popular for many brides and they are also great value for money. They also grow well in many gardens so speak nicely to your friends and neighbours if you are thinking of doing your own flowers!

Autumn Wedding Flowers

A Fall wedding simply calls out for oranges, yellows and reds.

There are vibrant dahlias available and roses are still plentiful. Mix hydrangeas with tall red hot pokers or seasonal fruits like apples or even pumpkin for a colorful feast for the eyes.

Winter Wedding Flowers

Don't think that a winter wedding means a limited choice of flowers.

Holly is also widely available and variegated leaves fit beautifully alongside other winter blooms or simply use the rich red berries on your table centerpieces.
