With spring in full swing around here, we’ve been thinking a bit about what will be blooming in the next couple months (aside from Morgan’s chive plant which has already begun growing at unreasonable extremes in April…). Flowers play an integral role for weddings in the decor, the mood, the photographs… and the budget. If you’re operating on a budget (and who isn’t?!) we recommend keeping in mind what flowers will be blooming close to your big day- think seasonal.
The more flowers available, the more competitive vendors are bound to be; and excellent example of the “supply and demand” principle we learned in middle school.

If you are working with a florist, they will know all about what blooms are in season and how to get the best deal possible, so make sure to ask them any questions you might have.
