Ideas for a Seasonal Wedding Bouquet: Flowers with Meaning

Deciding on your wedding bouquet flowers is wonderfully exciting. I remember how planning for my own filled me with child-like anticipation.

Are you noticing that even though you were pretty sure about what flower(s) you want, you keep getting swayed?  I did, all the time!

What I learned since then is that one of the more savvy ways to narrow down your choices is to look at the flowers of the season. This not only makes a seasonal theme complete, but it can also have a profound effect on lowering your floral budget.

Flowers can also be symbolic. The type you pick can have special symbolism and can help add to the meaning of your day and your vows.

This page will go over the most meaningful flowers for each of the seasons. For more information on flowers of that season, click the links to visit those pages.

So, What Kind of Flowers are Most Popular for YOUR Wedding Season?

There are certain flowers that are popular for pretty much any season or theme - roses, gerberas, and hydrangeas are a couple of the most popular. But, there are some that tell the story of your season so incredibly well.


The Peony is one of those blooms that feels perfect for a spring bouquet. In the east it is a symbol of prosperity while in the west it is symbolic of being "deep-rooted". Both I believe are excellent symbols for marriage. Go see more ideas spring wedding flowers.


A field of daisies is an image that comes to mind for summer, making it a lovely flower for summer. The daisy is a symbol of innocence - a charming way to look at your new beginning as husband and wife. Go see more ideas for summer wedding flowers.


The lily, in all its glorious colors, is an amazing color for an autumn wedding. Symbolically it too stands for innocent. I love this theme because we all go into marriage renewed and innocent. Go see more fall wedding flowers.


Winter isn't exactly a time for blooming flowers. Giving a bouquet that winter look can be done with additions like pine cones and evergreens. The white rose is a great option because it stands for purity. Go see more ideas for winter wedding flowers
