If your wedding is in the months of March, April and May then you should start to consider which types of flowers you want for the wedding. While there are a limited amount of seasonal spring flowers many are very beautiful and can be less expensive than out of season flowers. Discuss pricing with your florist to see if you can save by choosing some of the seasonal flowers listed below.


As a beautiful bulb flower with long think stalks you can incorporate the amaryllis into arrangements for the wedding. These flowers come in a variety of colors including white, red, pink and orange. Since they grow from bulbs they also make a great wedding favor as a single amaryllis bulb in a pretty pot. Whether you use them in your bridesmaid bouquets or flower arrangements, amaryllis flowers will make a beautiful addition to your wedding flowers.


If you live in the Hawaiian Islands or plan on having your wedding there you can find orchids for a very reasonable price. On the mainland however orchids are a very expensive flower to use for your wedding. These flowers are delicate and beautiful which is why they cost so much.

They accompany lilies wonderfully for a bridal bouquet or boutonnieres for your fiancé and groomsmen.

Be sure to ask which colors are available through your florist so you can choose the shades you love.


As a gorgeous and voluptuous flower you can easily use only peonies for your wedding flowers. They make wonderful arrangements and bouquets all by themselves.
