Incorporating the season of your wedding into your theme and decor is an easy way to create a sophisticated mood and cohesive design. You may opt to choose seasonal flavors for your menu and cake or choose seasonal colors for your wedding party. Another way to bring in seasonal elements is to choose in-season flowers for your bouquet and arrangements.

Selecting seasonal flowers brings you the highest quality blooms and may even be better for your budget if they are widely available to florists and vendors. From spring to fall, there are many beautiful flowers to pick from. Zola created a simple seasonal flower guide to help you identify the flowers in your wedding season. 

It’s important to remember that certain weather patterns may affect the blooms of flowers. If you plan on going with seasonal flowers, stay in touch with your florist as the date approaches to make sure they will be available. 

Always have a backup plan in case your planned florals don’t work out. Another way to balance out seasonal blooms is by using year-round flowers like roses and calla lilies. You can also add greenery and creative fillers like feathers, beads, and gems to spruce up your bouquet or centerpieces.
