When you plan the flower arrangements for your wedding, the availability of the flowers should be kept in mind as not all flowers are available all year round. Another important thing to keep in mind is special calendar days that have an effect of the flower prices, such as Valentine’s Day, Mothers Day, first day of Spring, Secretary Day and Christmas.  Flowers are usually quite a bit more expensive because there is a higher demand for flowers at those times.
