Wedding Bouquets

Posted by edisonfordwinterestates On July 17th

Flowers are essential to any wedding. Who doesn’t love seeing the bride’s bouquet when she’s walking down the aisle? While bouquets are a fun way to get creative, they can also be very expensive. The best way to save money on bouquets is to pick flowers that are in season when you are getting married. To give you a few ideas, check out the flowers and the bouquets that our brides have done in the past here at the Edison & Ford Winter Estates.

Calla Lilies 

Calla Lilies are unique flowers that can really stand out in your bouquet! The best time of year to choose Calla lilies is in the spring or summer when they are blooming.
