Spring – Bells of Ireland, Casablanca Lily, Hyacinth, Lilacs, Tulip

Summer – Chrysanthemum, English Lavender, Hydrangea, Lily, Snapdragons

Fall – Aster, Dahlia, Marigold, Statice, Zinnia, Chrysanthemum, Dried Leaves

WinterAmaryllis, Camellias, Cosmos, Holly, Star of Bethlehem, Sweet Pea

On a Budget? Try these helpful hints:

  • Use only in season and readily available flowers.

  • If you can, avoid holding your wedding in February when flower prices are at an annual high due to Valentine’s Day.
  • Carnations are one of the cheapest flowers out there, and can look quite lovely when carefully arranged.
  • More and more brides these days are arranging their own flowers, such as bouquets of simple roses tied with a ribbon.
  • Consider ordering flowers from an online wholesaler.
