Seasonal Wedding Flowers: How to choose the perfect blooms for your big day


Whether you’re planning a big summer bash or a cosy winter wedding, check out our guide to seasonal wedding flowers and find out how to choose the perfect blooms for your big day

When planning for your big day, one of the most important tasks on your to-do list is to choose your wedding flowers. The right floral displays can transform your event, bringing beauty and elegance to the ceremony and reception as well as helping to set the mood. To make sure you choose the best blooms for your big day, it’s important to consider seasonality. No matter whether you’re planning a spring wedding in the sunshine or an atmospheric autumn celebration, there’s a flower option to fit the bill.

Choosing the right seasonal wedding flowers for your big day

There are many different things to consider when choosing your wedding flowers; your venue, wedding colours, and personal taste will all play a part in defining the perfect blooms for your big day. It’s also important to have a budget in mind, ensuring that you choose the right seasonal blooms and arrangements for you without overspending.

Before you head online to start shopping, it’s always worth working with your florist or wedding planner to map out the different seasonal wedding flower options available. Your florist will be able to recommend the best blooms, help you determine the right colours and styles, and create a customised design for the day. Of course, if you’re feeling creative, you could try making some – or all – of the arrangements yourself!

Spring wedding flowers

Spring is a popular time for weddings – and it’s easy to see why. This is the time when we can shrug off the winter chill and look ahead; there’s a sense of renewal and possibility in the air, which makes it the perfect season to start married life. I think spring weddings pair best with vibrant, colourful blooms: think ranunculus, tulips, anemones, and pastel roses. These delicate seasonal flowers are especially well suited to outdoor garden receptions and rustic barn weddings.

Summer wedding flowers

Summer signals the start of the traditional wedding season. For me, weddings held at this time of year are all about enjoying the sunshine, drinking chilled cocktails and Champagne, and dancing under the stars. Summer weddings suit elegant, timeless florals: peonies, dahlias, sweet peas, and English roses are all great seasonal options. With their soft, romantic hues, these blush-toned blooms offer effortless style and serenity, whether displayed at the ceremony, the reception, or both.

Autumn wedding flowers

While autumn weddings are a little more unusual, I think it’s the perfect season to host a rustic, earthy, and cosy celebration. There’s something inherently romantic about this time of year as the leaves change colour, the nights start to draw in, and the holiday season is on the horizon. I love the rich, warm shades found in nature, from burgundy and rust to deep reds. Dahlias, chrysanthemums, and Japanese anemones are all great autumn wedding flowers. Why not add a playful nod to the season to your decor by incorporating pumpkins, gourds, and loose leaves?

Winter wedding flowers

Winter weddings have a certain magical element that can’t be replicated in any other season. It’s the ideal time to hold an intimate celebration, lit by candlelight and decorated with cosy romantic touches. Despite the cold weather, there are many seasonal blooms available. White flowers like lilies and orchids can help you to create an enchanting winter wonderland, while roses, ranunculus, and anemones are always elegant choices. If you’re looking to add depth, texture, and scent to your décor, consider adding pine, eucalyptus, and cedar foliage to your arrangements.
