Wedding Flowers in Season – Find Wedding Flower Availabilities and Colors

I found this fabulous article from About.com that I thought would be fantastic enough to re-publish here.  I see brides all the time having trouble picking colors and dates, but still have no idea what types of flowers they want to use for there wedding.  Hope this helps….

Picking wedding flowers in season can save you a bunch of money. Sure, growers are now able to fly almost anything in from the other side of the world, but you’ll pay a premium for that. Here is a US guide to what flowers are generally in season to help you get started. Talk specifically to your florist or grower about what is available.

This chart can also help you decide when to get married. If you want huge amounts of different pink flowers, fall might not be the best time for you to get married. On the other hand, if adore zinnias and dahlias, perhaps you should have a fall wedding.

Be sure to scroll down and see wedding flowers that are available year-round.
