What are the best flowers to use in a wedding bouquet? Wedding will be in January and the motif of the ceremony is red. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I am a florist by trade and feel competant to answer this question. First of all, you will need to decide what your formality of the wedding is. Will it be inside/outside, what time of day is the wedding, what will you and the groom be wearing etc. Once you decide on the formality, you can begin to choose bouquet styles. I always suggest that brides thumb through the latest wedding magazines to find a picture of something similar to what they are looking for. A good florist can then take that picture and make a bouquet with the same color scheme and feel as the picture, regardless of the time of the year. January is a good month, and you can get most flowers, with the exception of some exotics. Roses, cala lillies, carnations, alstroemeria, poms, even iris can be purchased at that time of the year. Your best bet, is to go to your local florist and talk with them. They will be more than happy to help you pick a suitable flower for your wedding. Congrats on the upcoming wedding! BLessings!
