Flowers on a Budget

One thing to consider, when planning your floral budget, is to consider what is in season for the time of year you are getting married. Calla Lilies (which aren't really a flower at all, but a large horn-shaped extension of the stem) are most available from March through June, and come in a small variety of colors that range from pure white to orange to dark magenta. Dahlias, which are available in a variety of rich colors and easiest to get in the summer and early fall, these full-bodied blooms laden with petals are great stock flowers for centerpieces, pew decorations, and other sturdy arrangements. Daisies, which bloom from May to July, represent hope, purity, and innocence. Whether mixed with greens in a bridal bouquet, placed in bud vases for airy centerpieces, or hand-tied in minibouquets for the bridesmaids, add the joy of daisies to your summer wedding celebration. Chrysanthemum, Daisy's spiny-bloomed cousin, is also most readily available during the long, hot months of summer. If you are considering doing your own bouquets, be sure to practice ahead of time, and know that for your flowers to be their freshests, bouquets can't be done until you are within 24-48 hours of your wedding.
