Picking seasonal wedding flowers can help you make the most of your flower budget, as well as being kinder to the environment! Here are our suggestions for picking your wedding flowers by season…
Spring is a wonderful time for wedding flowers, as there are so many available! Our favourite are traditional British Spring flowers such as bluebells, daffodils and tulips, but you can also get blousy classics like ranunculus, roses and peonies. There are also plenty of highly-scented options about, such as sweet peas, hyacinths and narcissi, which are perfect for making the most of that Spring fragrance.

When it comes to Summer wedding flowers, you really have your pick of the bunch. You could pick dainty, pastel flowers such as the ever-popular gypsophila (also known as baby’s breath), hydrangea and muscari, or go for hardy, bold brights like sunflowers, dahlia and gerberas. You could even put together a beautiful all-blue bouquet with cornflowers, delphinium and nigella! You have loads of choice when it comes to Summer.

Autumn is the perfect time for bold and beautiful wedding bouquets. We love the bright oranges, reds and golds of flowers like marigolds, calla lillies and roses, especially when filled in with hypericum berries. You could easily have a statement single-bloom bouquet using moth orchids (which are prettier than they sound!) or gladioli, or put together a pretty scented bouquet using freesias and lilac.

- Moth orchids
You may be worries that having a Winter wedding means you’ll have fewer choices for flowers, but that’s not the case! There are still plenty of gorgeous options available, ranging from classics like roses and lillies to Christmas flowers such as poinsettias and amaryllis. You can always bulk out your blooms with festive details such as pine cones, sprayed metallic branches and even a bauble or two!
