Wedding Flowers for Every Season

By on August 11, 2015

Just like there are brides for every season, there are flowers that go along with every season. While this may make it difficult if your favorite flower is not in season when it comes time for your wedding, this is great for brides who are looking to be married during less popular seasons. Below, you will find flower options that will work with weddings depending on the particular season.



Summer is a great time for a wedding and one of the most popular seasons. There are many flower options to choose from here and brides will look beautiful when they select any of them:

  • Orchids
  • Poppy
  • Chrysanthemum
  • Sunflower
  • Freesia
  • Rose
  • Hydrangea
  • Snapdragon



Spring is also a popular time for weddings and one of the best times when it comes to flowers. There are so many in bloom during this season that a bride can easily get carried away with selecting her flowers:

  • Iris
  • Peony
  • Orchid
  • Rose
  • Sweet Pea
  • Calla Lilly
  • Hyacinth
  • Lilac
  • Tulip



While it may not be the most popular time of the year to plan a wedding, fall is a great time for a number of reasons. You can easily plan an outdoor wedding during this time due to the fantastic colors and there is an interesting arrangement of flowers available. Be sure to consider the following flowers when your wedding is in the fall:

  • Asiatic Lily
  • Dahlia
  • Chrysanthemum
  • Rose
  • Bi-color rose



Even though there are many flowers that do not bloom during the winter, don’t think that you will have to forgo them for your winter wedding. In fact, there are many different flowers that you can choose from that will create a beautiful look for your wedding. The following are all fantastic options for winter weddings:

  • Carnation
  • Rose
  • Tulip
  • Gardenia
  • Narcissus
  • Lily
  • Orchid
  • Star of Bethlehem

Making the Choice

When you are ready to choose your flowers, one of the first thing that you should do is to make sure that you know what flowers are available during the season that your wedding will be taking place. While it can be disappointing to learn that some flowers are not available year round, there are many options that will help make your wedding special and memorable.


As you can see, there are a great number of flowers that you can select from regardless of the season that your wedding falls in. These flowers can also be mixed and matched to create the most perfect wedding design available. Whether you are getting married when it is warm or when snow is on the ground, you can easily add flowers to your big day.

    I love the “winter” flower, but does that mean I have to have our wedding during the winter months?

      Hi, Olivia! Zoe from Prep2wed here. NO! You don’t have to marry during the winter in order to have those specific flowers, but A). if they’re not in season, you’ll pay more, if, B). you can get them at all.
