Top 15 Most Popular Wedding Flowers

mixed boquetWhen it comes to weddings, flowers can be just as important as the bride’s dress. Not only does she have to walk down the aisle with an exceptionally beautiful wedding bouquet, but flowers are also used for many other things like decorating the ceremony venue, the reception hall, centerpieces, boutonnières, etc. Many people don’t realize just how important flowers can be and for some, adding flowers can make their wedding day more beautiful. Doing a little research can go a long way, but before you make a list of all the flowers you would like, first find out what flowers are actually in season. Buying flowers that are not in season will cost you more since your florists will most likely have to order the flowers from a different country. Another thing to consider when buying flowers is the time of year. Generally, during certain months, like February and May, the price of certain flowers tend to increase, due to popular holidays. So to help you out and make things a little less stressful for you, I’ve come up with a list of the most popular wedding flowers and listed when they are in season. Check it out to see if your favorite flower has made the list:
