When planning your wedding flowers you must consider them to be the
bride’s arrangements, reflecting the spirit of her life's happiest day.
From bouquets to decorations and wedding reception flowers, many brides
are clueless about which one of them to select.

Flowers should be chosen according to the bride and groom preferences,
color of the bride and bridesmaids' dresses, church and reception places,
and sticking to the decoration theme, if any.

Another point to consider is the season because most floral varieties are
easily found year-round, but seasonal flowers are cheaper and easier to
find. Fresh flowers are the most viable option when it comes to planning
the wedding day, but a few brides prefer dried flowers or artificial ones
made of silk.

Having an overall perspective of the flowers available throughout the
different seasons of the year may help to save money on flowers and yet
allow you to select the most appropriate flowers for the big day. Wedding
Flowers can be classified into Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter and Anytime
categories.

Spring Wedding Flowers to choose from are tulips, violets, greenery,
fern, pansies, peonies, ivy, daffodils, lilacs, lilies and lily of the
valley, dogwoods, irises, forsythia branches, hyacinth, larkspur, sweet
peas, apple or cherry blossoms.

For summer, the seasonal Wedding Flowers are daisies, roses, dahlias,
zinnias, asters, iris, larkspur, Shasta, stock, calla lilies,
delphinium, geraniums, hydrangeas, sunflower, sweet William, greenery,
beech leaves, ferns, meadowsweet, stock, goldenrod, Jacobs ladder and
Queen Anne's Lace.

During the fall, most wedding arrangements include both flowers and
foliage but not necessary. The mix of these elements is always a decision
of the bride who can choose from a single flower theme to combined floral
arrangements with or without specific foliage any time of the year.
In Autumn, Wedding flowers include asters, dried hydrangeas, roses,
zinnias, statice, marigolds, chrysanthemums and gerbera daisies while the
most commonly used foliage are autumn leaves, yarrow, rosemary and
rosehip.

Wedding Flowers for winter include the classic poinsettias, as well as
orchids, amaryllis, camellias, jasmine and forget-me-nots in addition to
accents of pine, ivy, fem, spruce and rhododendron leaves, so there is no
need for dried or artificial flowers as many brides still believe.

Apart from the flowers already mentioned, there are some others available
anytime when brides seek fresh flowers, including a variety of carnations
and roses, besides of gardenias, baby’s breath, snapdragons, stephanotis
and ivy mainly used in wedding bouquets.

Wedding flowers are part of your special day, but can take a large
portion of the wedding budget if not planned in advance. However, their
importance should not be underestimated because they are symbol of joyful
celebration, prosperity and fertility contributing to the atmosphere of
love joining the bride and groom’s lives together.
