What Wedding Flowers Are in Season?

By on April 13, 2015


In order to save money on wedding flowers, many people advise brides to choose wedding flowers which are in season. However, little is ever said about when each type of wedding flower is actually in season. Here is a brief guide showing what flowers commonly used in wedding decor are in season each month. A flower’s season is typically longer than a single month, so some flowers are mentioned several times. If the wedding date has been chosen, the bride can check that month to see which flowers are in season. Roses are available year round, but much more expensive during February.

Flower seasons can vary depending on your geographic location and availability. Brides can ask the florist which flowers will be in season at the time of the wedding. Flowers that are out of season often can be found and used for the wedding. The cost of out-of-season flowers is higher than those that are in season. If the wedding budget is a concern, it’s best to stick to flowers that are in season.

The flower budget for a wedding can be small or extravagant. Some couples decorate the ceremony venue and reception with numerous floral bouquets and runners. Even using wedding flowers in season can become costly if flowers are the main decoration everywhere. Some couples love that and can afford an expensive florist bill. If budget is a concern, reserve the flowers for certain areas where you want that dramatic effect.

Some brides may have an emotional attachment to a particular flower. Checking what months that flower is in season before setting the wedding date may be an option for including the special flower at a discounted price.
