Wedding Flowers by Season – In the cooler climates of Europe and North America, specific flowers bloom in specific seasons. This means that brides must choose wedding flowers based on what is available from local flower markets during the Spring, Summer, Autumn (Fall) and Winter months. Out-of-season flowers must be flown in from elsewhere in the world but the northern hemisphere brides are a little more blessed in terms of flower availability and can easily import fresh exotic blooms to their country with relative ease.
In South Africa, the seasons are not as clearly defined. Our climate enjoys short intervals of Spring and Autumn that lead to glorious months of warm and cooler temperatures. Our country is blessed to enjoy a warmer climate year-round and we are therefore surrounded by many more wedding flowers that are available to South African brides year-round. We are truly living in an incredible country rich not only in its diversity of peoples but of flowers too.
Check out the Infographic below: 8 of the Most Popular Wedding Flowers and Their Meanings.
Did you know that there are around 400 000 species of flowering plants in the world? Cape Town specifically is home to 9 000 species of fynbos which is included in the worlds six floral kingdoms. Deciding which flower or combination of blooms that is just right for your wedding day can potentially be a challenging decision. With so much beauty to choose from we are very spoilt for choice as South Africans.
