Choosing the Right Flowers and Color Palette for Your Wedding Season


May 3, 2019

If you’ve been following along, we’ve recently discussed why choosing an event planner that also specializes in floral design is an ideal choice for planning your big day. Now, let’s take some time to really talk about floral design and what’s trending in color palettes and flower choices based on the time of year you’re getting married! Your color choices can change based on which season you’re scheduling your wedding, so it’s always helpful to keep up with what’s trending so you can find a color palette that reflects your style and who you are as a couple. 

Going Bright and Bold for Your Wedding Colors

This wedding season, bright color palettes are dominating styled shoots as well as weddings. We’ve seen the classic white and green color scheme take a back seat to bold, highly pigmented blooms. While you’re staying in season with your color palette, I always recommend choosing flowers that are in season to your area, as well.

Using the Right Flowers for Your Wedding Season

In our area, we will see tulips and daffodils of all colors make their statement in early spring. June will bring peony season with big red, pink, and yellow tones. And September we will fall in love with our local dahlias – remember, dahlias don’t typically ship well, so it is especially beautiful to see them right here with our local farmers. All of these blooms are known for their bright, eye-catching colors and will really make those seasonal arrangements pop!

Source Your Flowers Locally 

I always suggest buying locally grown, in-season flowers. Not only are these blooms more readily available, giving you more color and style options, you’ll also be saving on shipping costs. If you have your heart set on a certain variety, be prepared for the extra expense of shipping them. But consider trusting your floral designer to suggest alternatives, as she is intimately aware of what is in season – literally and trend-wise.
What colors are you thinking of for your big day? Whether muted, neutral, or bright tones – work with your florist to discover the perfect shades for you!
