Wedding Flowers Featuring the Lovely Dahlia

Dahlias have become a favorite of mine and my brides over the past few years.  Especially the amazing Cafe’ au lait dahlia (above). I think the reason they are so popular is they have such a romantic feeling to the blooms.

I love designing with dahlias when they are at their peak growing season here in Northern California from July to October.  Dahlias are best when I use them straight from the growers.  Nothing is better than seeing buckets of fresh-from-the-field dahlias arriving in my workroom!

Dahlias can be a little delicate and difficult to work with at times.  But we have a few special ways of processing and handling them to get them to their very best before they are placed in bouquets and arrangements.

If you are planning a summer/fall wedding here in Sacramento I hope you will consider adding the dahlia to your list of possible blooms to use.  I love them and I am sure you will too!
