You want your wedding to be distinctive and inimitable, suited to your unique sense of style as a couple. Choosing a one-of-a-kind floral theme can be a magnificent way to make a beautiful impression on your guests and create memories to last a lifetime. Perhaps the most optimal theme is one centred on the season of your special day.
When you select seasonal floral arrangements, you can ensure that you will have the freshest flowers, greenery and other embellishments possible. Flowers in season are always more economical than those grown in a greenhouse or imported from another climate. They will be more readily available, as well, giving you the benefit of a wide variety from which to choose. Consider several factors for arrangements and bouquets based on your chosen season to guarantee stunning results.
Spectacular Spring Buds
Depending on where and when your wedding will take place, you have so many bright, bold and brilliant options for springtime wedding floral arrangements and themes. In most regions, breath-taking bulbs bloom in early spring, providing choices such as tulips and hyacinths, which would be lovely for a vintage theme.
You can never go wrong with roses, which appear throughout the spring months. Since they are available in virtually every hue, you can have flower balls formed for centrepieces that perfectly complement your ceremony's colour scheme. Spring wildflower bouquets boasting beauties such as daisies, baby's breath and forget-me-nots add sweet and simple elegance to a rustic wedding theme.
Sunny Summer Blossoms
With gorgeous weather and time to travel, summer weddings are traditionally popular. The good news is that floral choices abound during the summer months, many of which are sure to fit your wedding theme.
Asters, mums and hydrangeas in combinations of bright and muted tones are classic choices for a summer garden party. Dazzling yet delicate dahlias and gorgeous, graceful white lilies are sophisticated yet unpretentious, making them a superb selection for beach wedding bouquets. You would be hard-pressed to find a more charming choice than flourishing sunflowers for a country ceremony and reception.
Fresh Autumnal Botanicals
If you are planning an autumn wedding, you may believe your floral arrangement options are limited. In fact, numerous fetching seasonal flowers and add-ins convey autumn's rich colours and cozy ambience, perfect for any autumn theme.
Deep purple and gothic in appearance, "Black Forest" calla lilies are magnificent for Halloween-themed weddings, which are growing in popularity. Clusters of carnations and chrysanthemums in pumpkin-orange, deep gold and rich red shades will suit any harvest-themed reception, while collections of fall succulents paired with eye-catching foxglove and antique roses will enhance a bohemian celebration.
Whimsical Winter Blooms
The colder months may not be known for bright flowers, but there are enchanting seasonal wedding arrangements to be had. Choices depend largely on the time of year and your bridal theme.
A wedding bouquet comprised of snowdrops and large-leaf winter lilies embellished with striking, silvery Brunia is ideal for a snow-white wedding theme. Few flowers could be more appropriate for a Christmas-themed ceremony than red amaryllis and poinsettias mixed with snowy Star of Bethlehem buds. Romantic reds and pinks are perfect for a February, Valentine's Day theme; think gerberas, ranunculus and rose geraniums for in-season options.
Finding the perfect floral arrangements and bouquets for your wedding can be simple when you consider your theme and seasonal availability. Add in your own personal flair and you are sure to create an unforgettable setting.
