Flowers have the ability to completely transform a wedding venue. They add both color and texture to the space, and can tie the wedding aesthetic together. Depending on what time of the year they are getting married, couples have the task of finding flower options that are both in-season and fit with their color scheme and theme. Luckily, each season offers an abundance of beautiful flowers to choose from – and there are some great all-year flowers to check out, as well.



If you are throwing a spring wedding, you might have a hard time narrowing down your flower choices! Lots of flowers are in bloom during this time, so you’ll have your pick when it comes to creating your spring wedding floral arrangements. You’ll have your choice of beautiful pastels, and there are also a few bold pops of color as well. When it comes to springtime weddings, you can really play with different options that might work with your wedding style and color theme. Some popular spring wedding flowers include:


  • Peonies
  • Tulips
  • Lilacs
  • Daffodils
  • Hydrangeas
  • Ranunculus
  • Sweet Peas
  • Stargazer Lilies
  • Boronia
  • Poppies
  • Wisteria
  • Hyacinth


Many spring flowers are known for their fragrances. While you are picking out your flowers, keep this in mind – if you are sensitive to scents, you might want to avoid certain flowers. You also will want to avoid using heavily scented flowers for the centerpieces on tables where guests will be dining.



Summer is traditionally the most popular time to get married, and luckily for couples hosting a summertime wedding, there are plenty of gorgeous floral options to choose from. You’ll see a lot of brighter colored flowers start to emerge during this time, so there are plenty of options that will complement the sunny time of the year. Some great flower options for couples throwing summer weddings include:


  • Snapdragons
  • Sunflowers
  • Irises
  • Gerbera Daisies
  • Forget-Me-Nots
  • Matsumoto Asters
  • Chrysanthemums
  • Zinnias


Couples who want to play up the summer aesthetic can also include palm branches and tropical leaves in floral arrangements. This can give off a beachy or tropical vibe that will beautifully complement the summer flowers you choose.



Autumn creates a stunning backdrop for wedding celebrations. The warm hues that emerge in nature can create a gorgeous base for you color palette. Complement the rich colors of the season with some of these popular fall wedding flowers:


  • Marigolds
  • Zinnias
  • Chrysanthemums
  • Dahlias
  • Statice
  • Asters
  • Celosias


To create beautiful autumnal arrangements, implement other fall elements into your floral designs. Fall leaves, acorns, twigs, berries, and olive branches can all add an extra fall element to your floral centerpieces and bouquets.



Couples getting married in the winter might be worried about the availability of flowers during the cold season. Thankfully, there are still plenty of stunning flowers to choose from during the winter months! Popular winter wedding flowers include:


  • Anemone
  • Camellias
  • Amaryllis
  • Narcissus
  • Stephanotis
  • Cosmos
  • Forget-me-nots
  • Poinsettias


Just like during the fall season, couples who are celebrating their marriage in the winter have the opportunity to add stunning cold-weather natural elements to bouquets and centerpieces to play up the gorgeous time of the year. Fir branches, pine cones, silver brunia berries, and red hypericum berries are all beautiful additions to winter wedding floral arrangements.
