At First Class Designs, one of our missions is to demystify your wedding florals. Just because you don’t know the name of every flower or when it’s in season doesn’t mean you can’t have spectacular florals for your wedding. All you need is a love of flowers and the belief that great florals can elevate your day. In this comprehensive guide, we will delve into the best florals for your season, offering insights and inspiration to help you create a truly memorable wedding day.

Why does the season matter?

In some ways, it doesn’t. With today’s global economy, we can get all types of flowers shipped to us overnight. Roses, for example, are always in season. However, we can’t truly fight against mother nature. There are some flowers and some varieties that simply cannot be sourced during particular seasons. In this article, we’ll explain some of those restrictions and explore why choosing seasonal blooms is pivotal for enhancing the overall aesthetic and theme of your wedding

Spring Elegance: A Symphony of Blooms

April showers really do bring May flowers.

There are so many beautiful blooms that thrive in the spring. Tulips, cherry blossoms, wildflowers, and those ever popular and beautiful peonies are only a few of the abundance of flowers that bloom in the spring. Focus on soft pastel color palettes that celebrate nature. Peachy pinks, butter yellows, light blues, and spring greenery will create gorgeous arrangements.

Summer Bliss: Vibrant and Lush Floral Extravaganza

Step into the vibrancy of summer with roses, dahlias, and sunflowers. Don’t be afraid to go bold. Dahlias come in an abundance of shades and sizes and make a stunning addition to bouquets and centerpieces. Poppies come in bright orange, yellow, and coral adding a whimsical splash to your palette. 

The other aspect to consider when choosing your summer wedding flowers is the weather. If you are getting married in July and August, the potential for intense heat is high. Flowers such as hydrangeas and snapdragons are beautiful in the summer, but even with an adequate water source can wilt in the heat. If you are getting married outside or in an unairconditioned barn (a favorite in Indiana), talk to your florist about finding alternative flowers. 

Fall Opulence: Rich Hues and Warmth

Embrace the opulence of autumn with rich hues of red, orange, yellow, and burgundy. As fall weddings have gained extreme popularity, particularly in the midwest, growers have focused on special varieties of flowers that fit into that warm fall color palette. Spiced chrysanthemums, dark dahlias, tinted solidago, and fall foliage all complement lush arrangements that celebrate the season.

A note about dahlias – as beautiful as they are, they cannot be guaranteed the later into fall you get. Once the farmers sell out or experience that first frost, dahlias are nowhere to be found. Talk to your florist about alternatives that are equally as beautiful. 

Winter Whimsy: A Snowy Wonderland of Florals

Winter weddings, while absolutely stunning, pose some difficulties with flowers. Amaryllis, evergreen greenery, and even a few varieties of peonies are available. But not much else is in season and even flowers like roses can be in short supply. Don’t let this scare you! Just start to work with your florist early so they can work with their suppliers to get the flowers you need. 

Another common problem with winter weddings is straddling the line of winter and Christmas. I am approached by brides having weddings in November and January who want to bring in accents of evergreen but don’t want the wedding to feel like a Christmas celebration. My recommendation is to mix in those elements – pine, spruce, cyprus – with other year round greenery like eucalyptus and ruscus. This will highlight the ambience of winter without overloading on Christmas (unless that’s what you want!)

The choice of seasonal floral arrangements is a powerful tool in crafting a cohesive and visually stunning wedding. Choosing flowers that are in season will guarantee the freshness and vitality of the blooms. If you are unsure of what is in season – ask! Here at First Class Designs we are happy to walk you through your options to help you choose the right flowers so we can build absolutely stellar floral arrangements that will wow your guests and elevate the aesthetics of your wedding.
