Picking Flowers by Season

Bride And Groom Celebrating With Guests At ReceptionMost brides pick flowers based on color, but if you’re like me, you love all flowers! Picking just one or two of your favorite colors is too hard. In that case, you might like to pick flowers based on the season. Fortunately, May is a truly lovely month for flowers. See some of our favorites below:

  • Peonies: This flower is lush and soft. They’re often chosen for their romantic pinks and pair well with Astilbe, Cornflowers, or Queen Anne’s Lace.
  • Irises: These dramatic, colorful flowers make a wonderful focal piece. They come in as many colors as you could choose and look graceful alone or in a boquet.
  • Lilies: These large flowers also come in a variety of colors ranging from shocking pink and yellow to demure white. They also smell divine.
  • Lilacs: Another delicately fragrant flower, lilacs are generally only in season for a short time, however, they are simply too romantic to pass up. Pair them with sweet wildflowers or Lily of the Valley for a classic cottage look.
  • Gerbera daisies: Often considered one of the cheerfullest flowers, these flowers come in high voltage colors including orange, yellow, red, and hot pink. They’re also long lasting—a plus in any bouquet.
  • Kangaroo Paw: is a funky, lime-green filler which adds playful shape and texture to boquets.
  • Orchids: They’re classic shape and refined coloring make this a graceful addition to any table.
  • Snapdragons: Another favorite of may, this colorful tall flower adds a nice juxtaposition to many boquets.
  • Dusty William: This unique plant has velvety, grey-blue foliage that is a perfect contrast to many flowers like sunflowers, daisies, tulips, and more.
  • Billy Balls: This is an adorable flower. Tiny, yellow, and round, the Billy Ball is perfect alone or in a grouping. Place with soft candlelight to compliment the sunny yellow.
