Here are a few examples of what you can expect seasonally.

Winter:
Winter-theme weddings can be chic and ethereal, filled with nostalgia and holiday reminiscence. Use these ideas to create your very own winter floral wonderland.

Color palette:
New-fallen snow – Even though we are in Southern California, winter still conjures up visions of snowflakes and diamond white ice. Use whites and creams accented with silver or gold;
Winter sparkle – ice blue or navy accented with silver;
Black tie – black is especially suited for a winter wedding when paired with white, silver, or gold. Holiday theme – Decorate with evergreens, pine branches, wreathes, poinsettias, ornaments, bells, or twinkling white lights.
Added interest and texture – Incorporate holiday greenery or tiny crystals into your arrangements.

Winter Flowers In Season:
White stephanotis, poinsettia, holly, amaryllis, camellias, roses.

Spring:
The tulips are blooming, the temperatures are rising – what a perfect time for a wedding! Get inspired with these ideas for spring flowers.

Color palette:
Green and white – an elegant accompaniment to a garden setting such as Alice Keck Gardens or the Mission Rose garden.
Yellow and green – another fresh, natural color pairing;
Pretty preppy – combine hot pink with green or mango (think polka dots and gingham);
Chocolate brown – this trendy hue works well for spring, paired with pale blue or pink.
Add some greens – Grasses and greenery are a natural for outdoor garden settings. Drape over arbors and incorporate in arrangements. For tropical beach weddings, pull in palms and raffia for a natural, organic look.

Spring Flowers In Season:
Classics include tulips, daffodils, lilies (especially calla lilies and easter lilies), carnations, hydrangeas, gerbera daisies, roses, etc.

Summer:
Set the scene for a sunny summer wedding with vibrant colors finding inspiration in the great outdoors

Color palette:
Bright and bold – hot pink and deep red or mango and fuschia;
Yellow and green – another fresh, natural color pairing;
Nautical – perfect for beach weddings, navy and white is a clean summer classic. Accent with touches of yellow, red or gold;
Seaside – combine aqua with beige, peach or white to draw in surrounding colors such as sand, seashell, and sea!
For a beachy look – Incorporate shells and pearls, and accent your aisle with tiki torches draped with flowing tulle and fresh tropical flowers.

Summer Flowers In Season:
Use bright and cheerful blooms like sunflowers, peonies, mums, daisies, dahlias, zinnias, and roses. Or create a breezy, airy look with white on white – using roses, stephanotis, calla lilies, snowball mums and daisies – and incorporate a touch of blue – like blue hydrangea. Tropical flowers such as lilies, orchids, etc are always hot hot hot in summer months!

Autumn:
The change in seasons does not affect Southern California in the same manner that it would our East Coast friends, however autumn brings about a change in mood and element that can be beautifully reflected in your choice of florals

Color palette:
Colors of the season – work in concert with mother nature’s majestic color palette using reds, oranges, browns, rusts, and yellows;
Jewel tones – create pizazz along side the traditional autumn color scheme;
Mix with metallics – gold, copper, bronze for added pizzazz;
Back to nature – Use simple décor to subtly enhance the season’s natural bounty. Use the autumn harvest for inspiration; think gourds, pumpkins, squash, gold-dipped fall leaves, bales of hay, jugs of cider…you get the idea.
Create zing with a little bling!: Accent your bouquet with antique broaches, pins, or hair clips.
Natural texture – Incorporate leaves, acorns, feathers, and/or delicate sprays of wheat.

Autumn Flowers In Season:
Popular fall flowers include aster, hypericum, mums, zinnias, sunflowers, roses, and daisies.
