When it comes to choosing the perfect flowers to create your bouquet, there are many factors to take into consideration. Among the most important to consider are color, budget, and season. Luckily, the gorgeous California weather gives you many more options to choose from!
Spring: If you are celebrating in the Spring, the most popular colors are bright blues, pinks and yellows. Some brides choose to feature pastels in their wedding bouquet arrangement as well. Anemones are available in most months, except for summer. In recent years it has been featured in black and white themed weddings. A Star Gazer Lily offers a bit of dramatic flair to a bouquet because of their large blossoms. A peony is one of the most popular picks for a Spring bride. Spring colors are perfect for a California bride.
Summer: If you are having a wedding during the summer months, the most important thing to consider when choosing your flowers is whether or not they can withstand the California heat. The most popular choice is the Gerbera Daisy. It is inexpensive, comes in a wide assortment of bright/summery colors, and is widely available. Sunflowers are a great choice for a late-season, California wedding. Other perfect summer flowers are forget-me-nots, hydrangea, and asters.
Fall: This is the season with the most limited flower options. If the wedding is planned closer to Summer, many of the flowers are still available for California brides and will still look just as stunning. Many late-season brides choose to get more creative with their bouquets and add pumpkins or gourds to fill in for the flowers. Marigolds come in red, orange, and yellow and are the most common picks for California Fall brides. Chinese lanterns are a gorgeous addition to a rustic fall centerpiece. Dahlia's are a great combination of a rustic look with vibrant color.
Winter: Many may be surprised to know that Winter has an abundance of flowers to choose from. Many tropical flowers begin to bloom during this season which are perfect for a California beach wedding. Some spring blossoms become available for your bouquet. Poinsettias are perfect for a wedding in a warmer climate. Tulips are a popular pick because of their bright colors. Many brides add holly and hypericum berries for a wintery twist to their California wedding.
