We always say that no bride should be forced to listen to the opinions and objections of others when it comes to planning her wedding day. However, when it comes to flowers, Mother Nature might have a say in terms of flower availability… and unfortunately this is one instance where you have no choice but to listen up.

Flowers aren’t exactly the cheapest element of the wedding day, and if your chosen flowers are out of season to boot, the cost can easily sky-rocket right before your eyes! But before you start to panic at the thought of a flowerless wedding, have a look at this list of seasonal flowers before to help you make your final selection:

*Please note that this list does not contain all flower species and flower availability might differ from region to region. Consult your local florist about available flowers in your area.
