Which Flowers are in Season for a Wedding

One of the most green things you can do for your wedding  is use flowers and food that are in season and local.  To help you out, I decided to create this guide for what flowers are available when. Unlike other guides, I decided to organize this based on the time of the year and the COLOR of the flower — just because that’s how I think! 🙂
