Brides are always asking what flowers will be available when they get married. It’s a great question, so here’s a list of my favorite All Year Round flowers. Hopefully this will make your wedding planning so much easier.

Carnations: available in wide range of colors. A favorite color includes ‘Moonvista’ which is a deep purple.

Delphiniums: available in white, blues and purples, but it’s the rare Hybrid mauve that’s fantastic.

Gladiolas: typically line flowers but when you wire the florets, they take on a complete different look. ‘Emerald Isle’ which is a bright citrus green is one of my favs.
