Tulips are known for their Danish influence, and their sturdiness, simplicity, and unique shape make them perfect for spring weddings. Depending on the color, the meaning reflects passion, charity, abundance, and enduring love.


Orchids are a symbol of beauty, love, and fertility, and come in a variety of sizes and colors. So, no matter what your definition of “beauty” is, you are likely to find a floral arrangement that suits you.


Peonies symbolize love, happiness, and ambition, which is a sweet sentiment for your special day. These flowers are in season during the late spring, making them the perfect for the spring and summer wedding season.

Baby’s Breath

Baby’s breath has come back into style as of late and symbolizes innocence. This dainty flower is fairly inexpensive and in season year-round!


It is truly no wonder why roses rank as the most popular and beloved wedding flowers — they are a symbol of love, romance, and beauty, and are shockingly affordable. They are also available year-round, making them perfect for a wedding in any season. Bright red makes an excellent statement flower for a winter wedding, and white roses are an elegant and classy way to spruce up a spring or summer wedding. Regardless of what color you choose, you can never go wrong with choosing roses as your wedding flowers!


Sunflowers mean adoration and loyalty. The reason for this is because the head of the sunflower is known to follow along with the sun throughout the day as it moves across the sky. Both the bright colors and the symbolism make them the perfect flower for a rustic summertime wedding.


Zinnias are an affordable flower option, but definitely do not lack in meaning or beauty. They symbolize lasting affection, daily remembrance, and “thoughts of friends,” making them the perfect bouquets for bridesmaids, corsages for groomsmen, and centerpieces at tables for your loved ones.


These bright and springy flowers represent happiness and kind regards. If you are planning your wedding in the spring, keep these beautiful flowers on your radar as they are both inexpensive and in-season!


Perfect for outdoor weddings, magnolias mean “love of nature.” While most magnolia trees grow in the south, you can get these luxurious and beautiful flowers almost anywhere during the spring and summer months.


Lilies represent truth, majesty, and honor, making them fit for royalty. This flower boasts a lovely fragrance and is perfect for summer weddings when they are fresh and in-season.

Calla Lilies

This lightly fragrant, tropical flower originated in Africa and represents “magnificent beauty.” Calla lilies are perfect for spring and summer weddings, which is when they are in season.


Gardenias represent purity and joy, which are two things that are strongly associated with weddings. These flowers are gorgeous, dainty, and have an incredible aroma that will add an intoxifying essence to your wedding day.


The meaning behind lilacs is “love’s first emotions,” making them the perfect, romantic flower choice for weddings. They exude a beautiful purple to pink color and are perfect for adding a nice pop of color to your special day in a dainty, elegant way.


The elegant dahlia is a symbol of a commitment and a bond that lasts forever, making them the perfect flower for weddings. Dahlias are bold and bushy yet elegant and classic. These flowers are best used during summer and early fall weddings when they are in season.’


These colorful flowers are often underrated and misunderstood. Each color symbolizes something different — with pink symbolizing boldness, red representing love, and white indicating talent. These flowers are also inexpensive and fresh year-round, making them perfect for weddings of any season.
