If you are a bride in love with flowers, buying them when they are in season is a budget friendly way to go. Even though most of the flowers are grown year round, they are cheaper when bought during bloom season. The following are a few flowers based on seasons:
|Dahlias||Fall, Summer||Orange, pink, purple, red, white, yellow||Full an fluffy, best bloom in late summer and early fall|
|Gardenia||Summer||White||Full scented, finger oils can damage flowers over time; expensive|
|Hydrangea||Summer, fall||Blue, green, pink, purple, white||Bloom is full, great for round arrangements. Dries beautifully|
|Poppy||Summer||Orange, pink, red, white, yellow||Vibrant colours, wirey stems great for arrangements,|
|Rose||Year round||Orange, pink, purple, red, white, yellow||Classic; Garden roses are a great peony alternative|
Other summer flowers are Bells of Ireland, Calla lilly, Gladiola, Iris, Lily, Sunflower, Stephanois, Tuberose. Please speak with your local florist for more ideas.
