Floral arrangement from Jan. '13 issue (Story: Urban Oasis)

And while most anything can be flown in from across the globe, the premiums are steep. The less stressful (and more budget-friendly) option is to choose flowers in season for your big day. Aside from a handy list below which details each season's flowers in bloom, here are a few additional basics to keep in mind: For those in want of a large variety of pink, spring and summer will present the most options.
