Want to plan your dream wedding in spring?Flowers are a fundamental element of any wedding, and the decisions you make surrounding arrangements, bouquets, colours, sizes and varieties effectively set the mood and ambience of the event. In addition to this, the availability of your selected blooms is a major factor that must be considered. To simplify the ordeal surrounding flower selection and ensure that the execution of your wedding’s floral concept goes off without a hitch, base your floral decisions on the season of your.

However depending on what date you have chosen to say ‘I Do’ available wedding blooms generally change for each month. More times than not a wedding date is in place and it can be overwhelming and often a little upsetting for brides-to-be to find out that their dream wedding flower isn’t going to be available. It’s important to do a little research before getting your heart set on certain wedding flowers, and talking to your floral designer is by far the best way to access accurate information on seasonality and available wedding flowers for your day.

Sometimes imported wedding flowers are also available, and certainly we are experiencing a lot more access to global flower lines, but whatever the bloom, wherever it grows, it still has a season, and while importing can seem like a valid option, it comes at an increased cost and still doesn’t guarantee that you can access your must have wedding flower. Mother nature, regardless of the country, stills reigns supreme with what blooms when, and for how long!

So it’s no surprise when clients come to see us and are completely confused by what wedding flowers are available and at what time of the year.
