Floral Inspiration — Choosing the Perfect Seasonal Blooms for Your Wedding

Flowers add romance and softness to your wedding venue. There’s something so magical about walking into a wedding ceremony or reception that’s adorned in flowers, not to mention how amazing they look in pictures!


Choosing wedding flowers that match your style as well as the overall theme of the evening isn’t easy, especially if you don’t know much about blooms.

Here are some seasonal blooms that are perfect for weddings:

Spring wedding flowers

Lily of the valley

Known to be a royal flower since it’s popular with the royals, this flower made an appearance in Kate Middleton’s beautiful bridal bouquet. These lovely and delicate white flowers symbolize the return of happiness and is therefore a popular wedding flower.


They may not be easy to pronounce, but anemones are another popular wedding flower that’s ideal for more vintage or rustic style weddings. They come in a variety of colors and are perfect to match any wedding theme. They move through shades of lilac, purple, pink, and scarlet.


These stunning flowers stem from the buttercup family. They come in vibrant colors and are full of petals and texture. They’re ideal for floral arrangements at a country garden-style wedding reception. These flowers represent charm and great character.

Summer wedding flowers


With the warmer months come more popular flowers like peonies. They’re a favorite among brides because of their versatility. They can be used in bridal bouquets as well as centerpieces around the venue to wow your guests.


Hydrangeas are most popularly used for their vibrant colors and are a hit for summer weddings. They’re heavy on petals and make perfect pomanders for the venue.


How can we forget the ultimate symbol of love—roses? Roses are in bloom during summertime and I advise all brides to make the most of these flowers on their big day. They can make up an elegant bouquet and even be used for the décor. Roses come in a wide variety of colors so you’ll surely find something to match your theme.

Fall wedding flowers



If you’re looking to make a statement with your bridal bouquet on your wedding, Dahlias are definitely the way to go! They add color to your look and because they’re quite big blooms, you only need a couple of stalks for your bouquet.


These stalk-heavy flowers are ideal for tall centerpieces that are quite popular at the minute. They’ll give a modern touch to the wedding venue and lucky for you, they come in a number of colors.

Winter wedding flowers

Berried ivy

Blooms during winter time tend to be trickier. The cold weather is too harsh for the flowers. However, the berried ivy is ideal for more flamboyant vintage style weddings, like a great Gatsby-themed one.


Hyacinths come in a variety of bright colors and are known for their incredible size. They’re another show-stopping flower that can be used around the venue and perfect for blue-themed weddings. As you know, blue flowers aren’t easy to come by!
