Wedding flowers for every month


Choosing flowers for your wedding can be a tricky business. Often times, you will have your colors and your theme set at some point. You are trying to decide what type of bouquet and table arrangements you want, and it can be difficult to customize your flowers to suit your aesthetic while staying on budget

You can get pretty much any flower any time of the year these days, but it will cost you a pretty penny to fly it across the equator. The more seasonal you keep your flowers, the better they will flow with your wedding bliss. Why not choose flowers that bloom for your home wedding date? This will reduce the florist’s bill and mean your big day will be more in tune with the surroundings.

Whether you’re a June bride or planning a Christmas ceremony, we’ve selected the best bloomers for each month.

January

If you’re planning your wedding to get rid of the January blues (and need an excuse to fly somewhere it’s beautiful!) There are some winter flowers that are perfect for wedding arrangements. Winter iris offers stunning colors against pale bridal tones and the texture of the ranunculus petals adds that extra omph. Paper whites have this elegant simplicity that is ideal for a wedding.

February

Spring begins in February. Why not celebrate it with daffodils, French tulips and daphnes? There are so many daffodils out there that you don’t have to have the bright yellow ones everywhere. Daffodils are the floral personification of spring, from multi-hues to almost white.

French tulips bloom earlier than traditional tulips and have longer stems so that your centerpieces are not restricted in height. Daphne is a shrub with small flowers and a lovely scent that will add a seasonal glow to your celebrations.

March

March

The bluebells bloom until March and provide a wonderfully rustic and wild bouquet with small, hanging islands of color. Cherry blossom, another flower of spring, blooms so fleetingly but with such an effect that it would be a shame not to include it in a March wedding. Finally, add some lilies of the valley to your bouquet as miniature wedding bells. These pretty bells have long been a bridal favorite, chosen as wedding bouquets by Kate Middleton and Princess Grace of Monaco.

April

April

These tulips are finally in full bloom as spring begins to lend itself to warmer temperatures and they will have vibrancy and strength for an arrangement. Queen Anne’s Lace is a popular choice, and its wild look adds a touch of softness to a formal occasion. Stock is another bright selection, with blistered blooms in a range of colors.

2.May

May is often considered the month of romance as the multi-petaled peonies and roses bloom. Peonies, the gorgeous blink-and-you’ll-miss-them bloom, are an excellent choice, with shades from white to pink offering plenty of texture and size. Antique roses may look divine, but often smell so strong that they became too much for one occasion. Look at David Austen Roses for the ideal wedding roses that offer a calm scent, like the Kiera or Miranda shown here. Orlayas add a touch of that windswept look to this bouquet and give it a gorgeous filler. Cornflower and sweet pea are also ideal for a May wedding.

June

June

Alliums have a simply stunning architectural bloom and stem when they come into season in June. When you pair them with the wild and twisted stems of the peas, you have a perfect combination. Alliums are also great for a seaside wedding as they resemble brightly colored sea anemones of the Barrier Reef in a pile. Poppies are also blooming this month as you can’t stop staring into their intricate palm-sized petals.

July

2nd July

The heat of summer is in full swing now and your bouquet should be too. Take advantage of the vivid colors that the warmth ignites and add dolphins, cosmos and tuberoses to your wedding flowers. The open happiness of the cosmos wonderfully complements the stiff tuberoses. During this time you will have a full variety of flowers. So why not get brave and include everything from delphiniums to gypsophilia?

August

August

Summer really starts to burn in August, as do the flowers. The head-turning sunflowers and symmetrical wonders of the dahlias can be dynamically coupled with the trailing stems and open areas of the clematis flowers.

September

September

The onset of fall allows for the introduction of natural crops without looking too chirpy. Frozen blackberries, blueberries and figs add wonderful flourishes to bridal arrangements. Freesias and chrysanthemums give your bouquet structure and beautiful shapes.

October

October

When the heat subsides, the flowers bloom too, but not badly. Hanging snapdragons work perfectly against the perfectly formed zinnia flowers. Gladiolus flowers provide vesicular flowers with structure, so your wedding bouquet can look soft yet fully formed.

November

November

Once you start sneaking into the depths of winter, it can be difficult to get flowers on this side of the hemisphere that are still in bloom. Hydrangeas should still be in bloom, however, and can add great texture, color, and depth to your arrangements. Amaryllis also bloom in winter and come in a variety of shades, from greenish-white to festive reds.

December

December

A Christmas wedding can only mean one thing: Hellebores. Hellebore is a winter blooming flower with angular five-petalled flowers that can be grown in different colors. Combine it with an anemone, a beautiful round, open flower with a textured and sometimes black center, and you have a stunning and strong bouquet of winter blooming flowers.
