Best Flowers for May Weddings via Bloompop

Wedding flowers in season in May: May is a wonderful time to have a wedding, when it comes to flowers. But - some of the most expensive wedding flowers in season in May (like peonies) can be pricey! 

We’ve rounded up some of the best flowers for a May wedding that are both beautiful AND in season AND tend not to break the bank. (Okay fine, we couldn’t resist including the peonies anyway). Gardens explode with blooms in May, so it was very difficult to whittle down to just these. But we did it, because we heart you!
