Your Ultimate Guide To Wedding Flowers by Month and Season

Some of us spend a major chunk of our lives planning (or daydreaming) the perfect wedding. Those of you in the process of realising your dream wedding and currently in the planning phase of things might already know the importance of wedding flowers.

From reception table centrepieces to ceremony decor, boutonnieres, and bridesmaids and bridal bouquets, your wedding will likely be filled with floral arrangements, making it one of, if not the most, important aspects of your wedding planning.

You may already have a mood board lying around from decades ago or some colour preferences in mind, but, spoiler alert, not all your choices of wedding flowers will be available in your wedding month.

So, to make things easier, and to help you narrow down your search for the perfect wedding flowers, we’ve created this all-encompassing list of popular wedding flowers by month. So, let’s get right to it!

Best Wedding Flowers for Each Month


Baby’s Breath

Since you’ll have fewer greenery and filler options during your January wedding, Baby’s Breath, which is available all year round, is a great option to consider. It looks similar to Queen Anne’s lace.


Sporting a vibrant red colour, the amaryllis is a statement winter flower and Christmas wedding arrangement option. 


The anemone brings a modern vibe to wedding decor with its distinctive black centre and can be incorporated into garden-style bouquets as well as bud vase centrepieces.



Perfect for boutonnieres, this hearty bloom perseveres in the rough, cold temperatures during February.


Greenery and roses compliment this bloom fairly well and it’s easily distinguishable due to its tightly-packed petals. You can add a hint of cheer and whimsy to your bouquets by incorporating ranunculus.


Orchids are popular eye-catching flowers and they come in two different varieties, dendrobium and cymbidium. You can use a single flower as a boutonniere or create a luxurious wedding bouquet.



Tulips, much like daffodils, are widely available during early spring and late winter. Their different hues, from pastel pinks to bright yellows, can help you create refined and elegant wedding arrangements, including bouquets and centrepieces.

Sweet Pea

One of the best-smelling and amazing-looking March wedding flowers, Sweet Pea is readily available during early spring or late winter.


Ranunculus, although procurable throughout the year, naturally blooms during early spring and late winter. So, if your wedding date is in March, you’ll find the most sprightly and fresh-looking ranunculus for your wedding.



Hyacinth features purple, pink, or white shades and is quite similar to the shape of lilacs. The plant’s height specifically benefits spring centrepieces.

Lily of the Valley

Lily of the Valley is a small bloom and a favourite of the British royal family. They typically look great at garden weddings.

Sweet Pea

Sweet Pea grows in purple, brown, peach, and pink hues and offers a unique look to wedding flower arrangements.



If you’re a fan of purple hues and want to incorporate this colour into your wedding bouquets, this spring flower is one of the best options.


Hydrangeas typically wilt when temperatures are relatively higher, but right before then, you’ll find these blooms at their peak. Your florist will use their expertise to keep hydrangeas well-hydrated if you’ve incorporated them into your centrepieces or bouquets, but they’re better suited for large-scale displays.


Peonies are a favourite amongst most to-be-weds. If you’re one of them and your wedding is set to take place in May, you’re in luck. These blooms have a very short growing season and they’re mostly pre-ordered to avoid mishaps. Consider pre-booking peonies for your arrangements or wedding bouquets.

Did you know? Roses are available all year round, making them a perfect choice for wedding flowers.



Carrying a gardenia wedding bouquet or incorporating them into your boutonnieres may be tricky due to their distinct and strong scent. If you have sensitivities to certain smells, we’d recommend steering clear of this one. However, they’re a great option for an elegant and romantic arrangement.

Delphinium (Larkspur)

Delphinium look similar to stock or bells-of-Ireland and their stems are perfect for statement arches or ceremony aisle wedding flowers. They bring great heights to arrangements.


Roses are considered one of the best June wedding flowers as they’re easier to come by than most other popular choices.


Gerbera Daisy

If you’re planning a backyard summer wedding, gerbera daisies and their variety of vibrant colours will prove to be a great option.

Calla Lily

Calla lilies are popular choices for boutonnieres and bouquets, especially for July weddings, given they typically bloom in early summer. They are long-stemmed and sleek, making them great for arrangements leaning toward a glamorous look.


If it wasn’t for their green stamen in the middle, lisianthus could easily be mistaken for a rose. If you’re looking for flowers similar to roses but small enough for boutonnieres, look no further than lisianthus.



Cosmos are a great option if you prefer wildflower-style, petite flowers for your arrangements. They come in a wide variety of colours, including purple, red, pink, yellow, bright orange, and white and have narrow stems, making them easy to incorporate into your decor.


Typically used for corsages and boutonnieres, zinnias represent perseverance and strength. They’re used similarly to daisies and are available in almost every colour imaginable. Available in white, lavender, pink, orange, yellow, and red, there are a lot of combinations and ideas you can attempt with these.


Available beyond August, Protea carries a tropical look, making it a good choice for August wedding arrangements.



Although you may be able to find carnations all year round, they look their best during the late summer and fall seasons. Just like ranunculus, carnations are great for seasons when other blooms are harder to find and pair really well with roses.


Marigolds have a distinct orange colour and are widely used as wedding flowers for Indian weddings. However, you can also incorporate them into your early fall and late summer wedding. They usually look the most aesthetically pleasing in backdrops and installations. You may also be able to find them in brown, red, and yellow shades.


Dahlias, coupled with foliage and greenery, make for perfect seasonal centrepieces or wedding bouquets. They’re like the peonies of fall–widely popular but only available for specific windows of time.



Amaranthus is a vine-like flower that hangs down instead of standing up like most flowers, making it a perfect choice for cascading bouquets.


Dahlias and chrysanthemum share similar petal structures but the latter is typically more budget-friendly.


Depending on where your florist is sourcing flowers from, October is usually the tail end of the dahlia season. These are especially versatile and can perfectly fit any wedding theme–thanks to their strikingly wide variety of shapes and colours.

Perfect for large-scale arrangements, stock is a tall bloom that’s similar to snapdragons and delphinium in nature. They’re widely available during early winter, when it’s just starting to get too cold for other popular flowers to bloom, but can also be found beyond this month.

Celosia (Cockscomb)

Celosia comes in two different varieties. You may find tapered, feather-like celosias, or those resembling sea coral. Regardless of its shape, this flower sports a vibrant variety of jewel-toned hues that are perfect for November weddings.


Fall wedding arrangements and bouquets requiring a bit of texture and a beautiful pop of colour can greatly benefit from scabiosa, which is similar to chrysanthemums’ pom-pom shape. These flowers are typically available in white, pink, dark red, and periwinkle shades.



Aesthetically, camellias are a cross between dahlias and roses, making them a perfect alternative for those who love dahlias but can’t move their wedding date for the sake of preferable floral arrangements.


Their greenish-purple colour and dusty appearance, make hellebore a good option for boho arrangements. Look-wise they’re quite similar to eucalyptus. Since they’re also relatively smaller, you can consider adding them to your wedding boutonnieres.


Roses, as you may already know, are available all year round and are known as THE most romantic flower available. Since you’ll likely have fewer options to consider for your early winter/late fall wedding, you can consider different hues of roses for your floral arrangements.
