Picking Your Wedding Flowers Just Got Way Easier

Before you meet with your florist to discuss all-things bouquets and centerpieces, it's important to have at least an idea of what kind of wedding flowers you're considering — plus, if they come in the colors you want and if they'll be in season when you tie the knot. Just pinning pretty bouquets isn't enough. Compiling that dream wedding bouquet is equal parts inspiration and knowledge, and lucky for you, we've got them both covered in our comprehensive guide to wedding flowers by color.

Have you ever wondered if hydrangeas come in other colors than just blue? (They do!) Are you curious as to whether or not you can find orchids year round? (You can!) And we even have photos of each bloom in each available color so you really understand what you're getting.

Plus, we've gathered up more than just the popular wedding flowers and found some truly inspired petals that you're going to love on your big day. Did you know fragrant (and super pretty!) blossoming oregano is an ideal accent for your dinner place settings? Or that fluffy double tulips look so similar to bridal-favorite peonies but cost about a third of the price? Whether you're searching for the right flowers to stand up to high heat, trying to combine different blooms in the same color family, or want to find out what's actually in your budget and available around the time of your wedding, we're here to help.
