New Jersey Wedding Planner - Flowers, Flowers, Everywhere
Well, it's almost winter time; I can't believe it's already December! The snow has started to fall, soon the hot chocolate will start pouring, and we'll all have to break out the winter jackets (if you haven't already). I know I was excited about the first snowfall yesterday, but when I look outside at the white blanket covering the ground, it's hard to imagine the beautiful flowers that were in full bloom just several months ago. I've heard several people talking about wanting a winter wedding, but they refuse to do so because they think no flowers are available. No need to worry -- don't change your plans! -- there are still plenty of elegant petals to choose from if you're planning on having a winter wedding. I have started a list of flowers for you that are in season during these chilly months for all of you out there who think the only time you can have great flowers is in the warmer months.
In Season in Winter:
Amaryllis, Anemone, Bells of Ireland, Camellias, Casa Blanca Lily (pictured), Cosmos, Daffodil, Forget-me-nots, Holly, Jasmine, Narcissus, Poinsettia, Ranunculus, Star Gazer Lily, Star of Bethlehem, Sweetpea, Tulip, Waxflower
And don't forget about these flowers that are available year-round:
Baby's Breath, Bachelor's Button, Calla Lily, Carnations, Delphinium, Eucalyptus, Gardenia (pictured), Gladiolus, Heather, Lily of the Valley, Orchid, Protea, Rose (pictured), Scabiosa
Many of these flowers come in different colors, so there is sure to be a wide variety to choose from no matter what your theme may be! Remember this is just a starting point -- I'd suggest talking with your florist about what he/she has available as well!
So now you know flowers are in style year-round! =)
