From freesias, to peonies and more...
Choosing your wedding flowers can be overwhelming with the huge selection available. Luckily for you, we’ve pulled together a guide of our recommendations of the wedding flowers that work for each month of the year. Enjoy!
With the colder weather, orchids or other tropical blooms create the perfect contrast. It can be a tricky time of the year for cut flowers, so our advice would be to opt for imported flowers so you have more options.
Say hello to tulips! British-grown tulips can be adapated to any style of wedding. There are endless colour options and their stems can be worked into different designs. These wedding flowers would look perfect as part of a table centrepiece.
Freesias have a beautiful sweet, fresh scent which really stands out at this time of the year. White and cream shades are always popular with brides but there are also blue and yellow shades that would look lovely too.
With Spring officially here, anenomes should be your top flower of choice. They’re closely related to the ranunculus, but with bolder colouring and delicately layered petals. Pair them with other flowers to create a mixed bouquet or create a huge impact by using them alone.
May actually marks the start of the british-grown flower season and cornflowers are a fabulous choice. The blue shade is instantly recognisable, but they’re also available in white, pink, purple and deep red.
What would a wedding flowers guide be without peonies? Beautiful, extravagant petals and a delicious scent – we might only have peonies for a short time, but that makes them even more special!
Lisianthus are available throughout Spring and Summer and come in a variety of colours. If you’re having a romantic theme, these white wedding flowers are perfect, and actually look quite similar to roses and peonies.
Dahlias are spectacular during August. There are so many colours to choose from, from simple white shades to brightly coloured florals. If you’re looking for a focal flower to include in your bridal bouquet, this is the one.
We love chrysanthemums, because they’re great for variety and versatility. You can opt for large, single blooms to be used as focal flowers or the spray varieties to be used as fillers. Plus, they’re not a bad choice for your budget either.
Calla lillies come in beautifully romantic shades such as cream, peach, yellow, pink and red. They are perfect in shower bouquets, but they can also be used alone and be designed into curves like tulips.
At a rather dull, grey time of the year, carthamus offers the perfect pop of colour. They are a bright orange or yellow thistle-like flower that adds something unexpected and look fantastic when paired with other wedding flowers in a mixed bouquet.
For a Christmas wedding you need Christmas flowers and hellebores (or “Christmas roses”) can add elegance and pure simplicity to winter floral arrangements. Think light greens, whites, pale pinks and deep purples.
