Flowers are a crucial aspect of any wedding. Not only do they add pops of color to a venue, but they are a great way to help portray a particular wedding theme. Every season brings a variety of beautiful flowers. A wedding must have flowers that will not only align with its theme, but also be of season. Listed below are some of the best and most popular flowers based upon the different seasons:
