Seasonal Flowers for a March Wedding in Florida

Ask the Expert: Seasonal flowers for a March Wedding in Florida?

I am getting married in central Florida on March 21st. I would like to use as many local flowers, or at least grown in the US, as possible. What are some options? How would I go about getting orange blossoms?
Thanks! Jaime


  1. Jaime,

    First congratulations on your upcoming wedding. The issue of seasonal flowers isn’t as important as it once was. The global market place has taken the strain off of seasonal flower issues and most flowers can be obtained year round. As to whether they are grown in the U. S., it is hard to know without talking to your local florist and determining who their supplier is. Of course there are still price differences depending on the time of year. I assume that is the reason you are concerned about seasonal flowers.

    The best rule of thumb is to choose flowers that are naturally blooming during the season your wedding will take place. For example tulips, hyacinths, Gerberas, daffodils, freesia, snapdragons, larkspur, forsythia blooms and flowering quince bloom in the late winter and early spring in Florida as well as other places in the U. S. as well as many other flowers. A good place to find the availability of seasonal flowers is the California Cut Flower Commission and they have a March Seasonal Flowers Page. This will tell you if the flowers are available during your wedding season. Then create a short list of the flowers you like and take it to your local florist. They will be able to tell you if the flowers are at a premium price during your wedding or are at a normal price level.

    Peach tree are an early spring blooming tree and very likely considered in season for your wedding. Many florists are able to order peach blossom during the blooming season. However, these will be considered a premium flowers with a price to match and will have to be specially ordered. Because these only bloom during a very short period of time, you will need to discuss the use of this flower with your florist extensively including the worst case scenario of unavailability due to environmental factors.

    I hope this information has been helpful. Please keep me posted.
