The best thing is that ordering flowers in season makes it easier for your florist to obtain them, your blooms would be fresher, and you might even save money on your floral budget.

·       Anthuriums:

Anthuriums, which are native to South America's tropical rainforests, are among the best flowers for a beach or island wedding. These flowers are also known as flamingo lilies. They are long-stemmed flowers that bloom in various bright colors, including pink, red, purple, green, yellow, and multi-color varieties.

·       Dahlias:

Dahlias are a stunning choice for making a statement in any bouquet or centerpiece, thanks to their intricate texture and a wide variety of sizes. These are the ideal flower for July and August weddings. They don't have a fragrance, but they come in a wide variety of colors, from soft pinks to deep dark burgundies to bright oranges and plain white, and they can be used for a rustic look or stand alone for a refined look. Dahlias are a perennially common flower, which causes their prices to fluctuate, but sola wood flowers have resolve this issue.

·       Delphinium

Delphiniums are tall and stemmy statement-makers that generally fit well alone in an arrangement. They come in a variety of blue and bluish-purple colors, as well as white and pink hues. They are ideal floral option for a bold, rustic vibe, and they have a light fragrance that won't bother any sensitive guests.

·       Gardenias:

Gardenias make perfect boutonnières thanks to their heavy, sweet fragrance and large size, but they're also a stunning choice for a standalone bouquet at an elegant wedding. Gardenias are a delicate flower with a touch of Southern charm, and they only come in white or cream. The petals turn brown when they begin to die, so plan for storage if you want these lovely blooms or go for its sola wood version. You'll need a strategy to keep your bouquet and centerpieces looking their best, particularly because of their high cost.

·       Hydrangeas:

The hydrangea, a staple in floral design for decades, has become even more common in the last ten years. This flower is adored by all Southern belles who grew up seeing it in their mothers' and grandmothers' gardens. While hydrangeas aren't usually fond of sun, but still brides love to use them in their sola wood form. It's worth noting that these flowers take a little extra attention, but they are available almost all year, and each head measures four to eight inches in diameter, giving brides more bang for their buck.

·       Iris:

Irises are most often associated with a vivid purplish hue. Still, they also come in various other lovely colors, such as pink, yellow, and white. Some iris flowers even have a sunset or ombré coloring, making each stem distinctive and lovely. Some varieties have no fragrance at all, while others may have a fruity aroma. White irises add color and a hint of frill to a bouquet, close to the effect of sweet peas. On the other hand, a standalone bouquet can provide a stunning, enchanting look for a romantic wedding.

·       Lavender:

Lavender is a small flower with a strong scent. It's prevalent during the summer because its color scheme complements the pastel palettes popular among spring and summer couples. Lavender makes a lovely bouquet because it has a soothing smell as well as a hint of purple that reminds you of summer. It can be used in various design styles, from rustic and traditional to modern and elegant.

·       Orchids:

Orchids are a beautiful, elegant alternative with a contemporary twist. They come in a wide variety of colors and shapes and endless varieties such as mini orchids, large orchids, and every form imaginable. However, keep in mind that each variety has its distinct fragrance, ranging from sweet floral to rather putrid. White orchids are the most common choice for wedding bouquets, but pink and purple orchids are also available. If you're on a budget, however, be sure to talk to your florist about prices or choose sola wood version of these elegant blooms.

·       Peonies:

The peony, with its billowing petals and fresh fragrance, is undoubtedly the flower that screams summer. It's no surprise that it's one of the first flowers that florists consider for summer weddings. Peonies come in various bright pink, yellow, and white hues, extremely fragrant, and have a larger bloom size, so you get more bangs for your buck! It's important to note, however, that peonies are only in season for a few weeks. Their season lasts from the end of spring to the middle of summer, so wedding florists use sola wood peony flowers.

·       Roses:

A rose is the epitome of romance and eternal beauty. It's plain, elegant, and undeniably stunning. Due to their fantastic scent, high petal count, and textured look, these are a favorite of brides, particularly during summer season. Garden roses are generally available year-round and are an excellent replacement for peonies when they are unavailable. They're also less expensive than peonies, depending on the variety, so they can be more affordable summer wedding flowers while maintaining the same fairytale look and sound.
