Choosing seasonal flowers for your wedding bouquet can enhance the beauty and freshness of your blooms. When you opt for in-season florals, you can rest assured that they are at their peak of freshness and fullness, and you’ll avoid the additional expense of shipping in exotic or out-of-season blooms from afar.
To choose your seasonal wedding flowers, begin by considering the month and location of your wedding. You’ll want to select blooms that complement your wedding theme and setting, whether you’re planning a lavish ballroom affair or a breezy beachfront celebration. Talk to your wedding florist to discuss your vision and brainstorm ideas for a seasonal flower arrangement that reflects your unique style and personality.
