If fresh flowers are important to you, then a little insight into which flowers are in season during your wedding is something you'll need to talk over with your florist. The good news is that Randi of Jet Set Planning, a Nashville area wedding planner, is here today to help us navigate which flowers to choose in your wedding season. If you love anemones (like me!), then chances are you won't be able to make those black and white floral dreams come true in the fall. But if you do love a good peony (also me), then having a late spring or summer wedding is going to be the best route! I'll let Randi give us the low down!
If floral is a priority item for you, then picking the right season to wed is super important too! You may have visions of peonies dancing in your head, but if you are also hoping for a gorgeous fall wedding, well, those two things just don't mix! At least, not without some serious creativity and an added zero or two on your budget!
A well skilled & knowledgeable florist is key to helping you get the floral design of your dreams! I've seen some magical creations with a few simple silk additions. But fresh is always best!
Floral budgets can vary greatly, but if this is a priority for your wedding day, we recommend a minimum of $3,000.
