What can I do if my flower is not in season?

If your favourite flower is not in season for your wedding date, don’t panic all is not lost. Some flowers can be imported in from another country at any time of the year!

Speak to your florist as they will know which flowers they can import and also which flowers are similar looking, that could be used instead.
