In the light of recent events, Covid-19 has altered our lives completely in such a short space of time.
Your wedding plans have halted and gotten postponed, such a difficult thing to have to deal with when you've worked so hard for such a special day.
Plenty of my couples have asked a good question, with your original date being rescheduled to a few months’ time or even next year. Will your flower recipe differ?
So, I thought I'd pop together a little flower availability calendar for you to check out! I’ve based it on what’s available seasonally from a local grower and what’s available at the flower market which comes from the Dutch auction in Holland.
Spring, what can I say, an abundance of choice, we’re truly spoilt!
Tulips, Muscari, Narcissus, Anemones (rather popular with my brides currently)
Ranunculus, Freesia, Hyacinth, Stocks
Here are some examples of bridal bouquets with the spring flowers incorporated
Summer, a riot of colours and blousy blooms, what’s not to love!
Peonies (Whoop!) the start of Dahlia’s, Lavender, Cosmos, Scabiosa, Astilbe (pinks and whites) Freesia, Sweet Peas, Sunflowers, Stocks, Delphinium
Here are some examples of bridal bouquets with the summer flowers incorporated
Autumn, oof those rusty and burgundy tones are insane, the last of nature’s bounty
Dahlia’s, Scabiosa, Dried Flowers, Ilex, Red Astilbe, Freesia, Sunflowers, delicious Viburnum Berries, Stocks, Sedum
Here are some examples of bridal bouquets with the autumn flowers incorporated
Hypericum Berry in an array of red tones, white, pinkie and greens, Thistle (comes in blue and white) Astilbe (white) Freesia, Wax Flower, Ranunculus, Sedum
Roses, Hydrangea, Lisianthus are a staple flower that are usually available all year round from Holland.
Hope this has helped by breaking it down visually.
