Depending on where you are (continent), the flowers in season are different, this might account for why you are finding the complete opposites.

In canada, september flowers are mums, dahlias, lisianthus, sunflowers, hypernicum, some anemones, Delphinium, Hydrangea, Stephanotis, Scabiosa.  Basically summer flowers are still available early sept.  Spring bulbs like tulips are not, nor are peonies.

 

In Sept, the cheapest will be hydrangeas, dahlias and mums.

I’m having a september wedding as well!

My Fiance and I just met with our florsit on Saturday and I asked her what flowers will be in season around the time of our wedding, for budget reasons. But she reassured me that we are able to get any types of flowers we wanted (albeit the florist is a very close family friend) around here (sunny southern california). So for my bouquet, I will be having peonies!! My bridesmaids will have classic roses, as will the groomsmen. Parents and the grooms, as well as the centerpieces, will be orchids. 

Hope this helps!

It really depends on where you live.  Flowers in September in NY are going to be different that the flowers available in September in So Cal.  I’d meet with a few florists and get their input, but don’t commit to anything yet.  Another option would be to go to your local farmers market in September of this year to get an idea of local available flowers during that time of the year.

I like http://www.growersbox.com

when you look at a flower it tells you when it is in season, and stuff. They have wedding boxes that you can put together, and all sorts of great deals since they are whole sale and have farms all over the world. My FI’s sister used it for her wedding, and her flowers were great! I however, still don’t know what I want to use because there are so many choices.

My wedding is this September and we are having primarily Dahlias (love the bright colors and poofiness) with some anenomes and gardend roses.  If I had just Dahlias, it would have been a little less expensive.  Peonies will definitely add to the overall cost of the flowers.

Being in California, it won’t be too hard to get flowers that aren’t in season for a reasonable price, except for bulbs and peonies.

One of the florists that I am meeting with here in MD, sent me a list of in-season flowers for my area.  Not sure if it’s applicable outside of my state, but you can see it below.

The florist is Local Color Flowers.  They’re located in Baltimore, MD and use only local and seasonal flowers.  I am meeting with them tomorrow, hopefully the price is right!

Any good florist should have a chart showing which flowers are in season in your area.  I went into my first meeting with our florist having no clue and a low budget.  He came up with a beautiful floral scheme…my favorite is my bridal bouquet (of course)…it’s going to be a “presentation” bouquet of sunflowers, blue delphiniums, and heather tied off with raffia for a rustic “wildflowers” look.  I’m getting married in NY in September.
