Seasonal Flowers

Posted: 19 January 2023

Do you have a favourite flower?  Did you know that it can massively increase your wedding costs to have a specific flower at your wedding day?  With this in mind, we have put together a list of flowers and the optimum time of year to have them.  For example, Peonies in December would have to be imported from expensive greenhouse growers, which would increase the cost substantially.   

With the energy price increase currently gripping the world, some of the larger manufacturers in places such as Holland are turning their greenhouses off over the winter months, which has had a knock-on effect on price and demand.  So be aware that there are alternatives available, in artificial florals, which have massively improved in quality over the last decade.

So without further ado, sit back and wander through the TWP meadow to pick those perfect petals for you.

When having your first floristry appointment, it is always good to have an idea of what kind of flowers you would like.  Why not check out our shape guide to see what fits best for you.

Whether it is a tight posy or a loose unstructured nosegay bouquet, your flowers will give you that comfort element to hold on to as you take your steps towards the love of your life and are a great place to incorporate those all important secret touches that only the two of you know about.  Think a locket with your pictures in, a special piece of fabric from your first date outfit and simply a love note rolled up inside from your beau.  The main purpose part of your day is what you say to each other, everything else is just scent.
