Six percent of your wedding budget is supposed to be devoted to flowers according to Mindy Weiss' 'The Wedding Book'. For some people, it can be much more than that. Buying flowers that are in season locally or regionally can be a big money saver. Although almost any flower can be bought out of season these days, importing them from Ecuador or Holland will cost you. Sticking to the "A March Wedding" theme, here are flowers that are in season throughout the spring.
Flowering branches such as apple, cherry, and dogwood
Freesia (available year round)
Muscari (grape hyacinth)
Sweet pea (into early summer)
