My name is Leslie Hayes; I am the on-site wedding coordinator for Thistlewood Manor.  I have 10 year experience planning, designing and organizing weddings. I have also done most of the floral work for these weddings. From this I would like to take some time and share some floral knowledge.

Choosing your wedding flowers by yourself is a very difficult task. Some flowers do bloom year around and some are only offered during specific seasons. If you are planning a DIY wedding and want to create some of your own floral pieces, you might get a little frustrated with this. I have compiled a small list for you that have the most popular wedding flowers by season. I have also included the colors they come in and expense. I hope this helps all you DIY brides or even the brides that want to get a head start on pricing or design before heading to the local florist. In closing, some of these flowers can be ordered out of peak season, however you will pay a premium price. Enjoy!
