Flowering Magnolia

Only in season from August to September, the Flowering Magnolia is one of Kate’s top picks for its rarity. Another major benefit of this flower Kate points out is the heavenly scent it provides, which can transform your wedding reception and create the ultimate atmosphere. Coming in white, pale pink, musk pink and purple tones the flowering magnolia is ideal for a romantic setting. This flower can be used to create beautiful bouquets and breathtaking hanging installations.

Flowering Helleborus (also known as the Winter Rose)

The beauty of this flower for Kate lies in its flexibility to be used both as a flower and as foliage. Available in white, pastel pinks, purples and greens the flowering helleborus has a classic wedding appeal. In season from June to September this flower is perfect in bouquets and table arrangements.

Hyacinths

Ideal for winter weddings hyacinths are in season from June to September. The hyacinth has found a spot in Kate’s top winter picks for its ability to be styled as a cut flower and just as beautifully in its bulb form. Used in bridal bouquets and table designs, hyacinths come in stunning pastel pinks, whites, purples, blues and peach tones, ensuring that while the winter weather may be a tad dreary outside, inside can still feel bright and fresh like spring.

Lily of the Valley

Similar to the flowering magnolia, Lily of the Valley is only in season from August to September. Aside from its delicate beauty, the heavenly scent from the Lily of the Valley has ensured this flower secured a place in Kate’s top 5. A little known fact Kate revealed is that it is common for Europeans to give this flower to each other as a sign of friendship. This beautiful meaning only strengthens the appeal of this flower for its use in weddings.  Perfect for bridal bouquets and table arrangements, the Lily of the Valley only comes in white.
