Hello All 🙂
Are flowers significantly more expensive in the winter (January)? I am in the process of finalizing our wedding date, and it’s down to January 2009 or April 2009. I want to consider all pros and cons of each day, so I would realllly appreciate the advice! Thanks in advance!

I’m also a winter bride! But I’m opting for non-floral centerpieces at my wedding so I really haven’t priced too many flowers. I do know that "normal" type flowers are the same prices – I am doing a bouquet with cream colored roses and they are only $19.99 a dozen. I suspect if you picked flowers which are usually grown in the summer time they may be more expensive.
It’s probably best to get some quotes from a florist. I doubt the price will be that much different. I think you’re better off deciding what time of wedding you want to have – winter v. spring!
good luck 🙂

I’m a winter bride too. 🙂 I agree with MsB – if you go with flowers that are in season, you should have no problems. If you are curious as to which flowers are in season in Jan vs. April, this website tells you avaibility by month (they also sell flowers in bulk!).

Thanks for the comments ladies!
I think I’m leaning towards white branches. To save costs, I might even spraypaint regular branches white.
Good Luck to you all 🙂

I think that would look awesome. I think it would look really nice to spray them either with silver or gold sparkles – depending on what matches your color scheme. You could even hang little decorations from the branches.
