Because flowers are grown internationally, it's definitely possible to buy nearly any flower that you want at any time of the year. But for the best quality and prices it makes sense to order wedding flowers by season.

As we continue our series on wedding flowers, this week we will talk about selecting your flowers. When choosing your wedding flowers, keep your wedding date in mind. For the biggest, freshest blossoms, pick flowers that are in season. Seasonal flowers are less expensive, allowing you to get the most bang for your buck. And with the rising costs of wedding planning, most brides are trying to save money whenever they can.

Of course, there are thousands of varieties of flowers to choose from, these are just some of the most popular and readily available for weddings. Some flowers that are available pretty much year round include Baby's Breath, Calla Lily, Carnations, Freesia, Gardenia and Orchid. You can make the most of your bouquets and decorations by infusing some of these year round flowers with seasonal varieties.

If you have your heart set on a certain flower for your bouquet, don't worry if it's not in season. You might have to pay more and import them, but almost every flower is grown somewhere at any given time of year. Just keep in mind that exotic, imported flowers will generally cost at least three times as much as locally grown, seasonal blooms.
