“Changing seasons may affect your selection of specific flowers, but this doesn’t mean you have to compromise on everything.”

Chat things through with your florist
Your florist can guide you through your flower choices and replicate your original designs as much as possible within seasonal constraints. This will mean adapting the exact flowers, but you should be able  to retain the same colour palette if you wish to do so.

The big one – peonies…
If you’re a big fan of peonies, as so many brides are, sadly these won’t be available. But, all is not lost, incredible flowers like Café Au Lait dahlias can take the place of their Spring counterpart.

Warm colours
Or, why not embrace the change? If you are getting married in the September-October season, make a splash with warm oranges and yellows, bringing colour and a seasonal vibrancy to your day.

Winter hues
If you’re getting married in the deep mid-winter, your flowers doesn’t have to feel ‘Christmassy’. Leave pine for your door wreaths and use foliage such as lichen, rosemary, hellebores and catkins.
