Seasonal Flowers? How To Get The Wedding Flowers You Want

Did you know that there are brides who plan their wedding according to which flower is in season? I didn't quite got that far, but I was very conscious that peonies are in season in late May / June, and Lily-of-the-Valley in late April / early May. I love both blooms, and I was really keen to include them in my bouquets {I had two weddings - find out why!}, so I was thrilled both came into season right on time. One bride I know wasn't so lucky. Her favourite flowers are dahlias, and she was genuinely distressed that they weren't in season for her summer wedding. Her mother-in-law even tried to force them in her greenhouse! Luckily I've stumbled across a solution - artificial flowers. I'm not talking about the plastic cheapies that you find on the tables of dodgy restaurants, but truly beautiful silk blooms. I have a bouquet of pretend peonies on my dining room table right now, and everyone keeps asking me where I've found them in autumn. They're that realistic! And the added benefit is they've saved me a fortune - artificial flowers are so much cheaper than the real thing, and they last forever - a great money-saving tip for budget-conscious brides. You could keep your bouquet forever! Enjoy these pictures and take a look at my Pinterest board for some serious bouquet brilliance.
