Wedding Flowers for Your Wedding or Civil Ceremony


Our recent post “When Should We Have Our Wedding or Civil Partnership?” looked at the best time of the year to have a wedding or civil ceremony.

The date you choose will depend on a number of things:

  • When you and your partner are available

  • The budget you have

  • The time of year that you'd prefer
We looked at the flowers available, too. Flowers often form an important element within a ceremony and are often carried through in the reception, too. Complimenting a colour scheme, they help to tie together a theme that is often repeated by the clothing, the tables and the decor. 

Once you've set your date, check which flowers are in season. Even if you don't commit to a colour or type, it's important to know what's available. Check with a local florist to see what's in bloom when you need it.  In the meantime, we've listed some of the flowers available during the year. We've tried to include different colours for each month, but many are in bloom throughout most of the year. Some varieties of sunflower, for example, are available all year round.
