In Season Flowers for your Big Day


You’ve secured the venue, the date, the time and sent those RSVP’s – now what? Well, now come the vendors and one of those is your florist. When it comes to florists, they may ask “what are you thinking” or “do you have a color scheme you’re working with?” Unless you have a Pinterest board fully dedicated to flowers, you may not know where to start but don’t panic! Read on to find out what flowers are in season to help you when it comes to creating your dream floral arrangements!

Not only is it the perfect time for an outside wedding but Virginia Beach is blooming – literally! The grounds are lush and green, so why not add some Mountain Laurel pinks and White Blossoms for contrast? Some Coneflowers and a bouquet of creamy-white or pink Magnolia Blossoms for your wedding party can make a statement! Ask your florist about these other in-season flowers: Daffodils, Lily of the Valley, Delphinium, Anemones, Hyacinths, Irises, Hydrangea, Bluebells, Peonies, Tulips, Calla Lilies, and Roses.

Virginia Beach summers can sometimes feel like a heat wave which means you need to have flowers that can hold up well in the warm weather! You could go with Sunflowers, Spiderwort’s Three-Petaled Blooms of purple, white or pink. If those don’t tickle your fancy, try looking at Gerbera Daisies, Peonies, Delphinium, Irises, Orchids and Asiatic Lilies!

Add in all of the warm, fuzzy colors of fall with maroon, mustard, orange, red, and deep green florals. The autumn season has so many options from Hydrangea to Carnations and Marigolds to Viburnum and Narcissus! You can also think out of the box and add ribbons, pumpkins or even few autumn leaves in your bouquets or centerpieces. Not only will they look beautiful but they may even add a nice fragrance to the mix!


Outdoor wedding move indoors as the colder weather months come in but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a little bit of the outside while you’re inside! Every good florist knows that winter weddings call for some greenery and lighter colored flowers, so try Hydrangeas, Tulips, Camellias, Roses, Amaryllis, and Ivy to spice up your winter wedding!

    We had such an amazing wedding at the Lesner this past weekend. With all of the hurdles we had to go through with COVID protocols, Alexis, Kim, and Lindsey went above and beyond to make our day feel normal- and it was PERFECT! They were so attentive to detail and helpful with things I had not thought of during the planning process. They took care of every detail and we had nothing to worry about on the day of Our wedding except showing up. I even had some last minute changes to decor that they were able to help with. The food was amazing and the view is seriously one you can’t beat. The sunset deck is Covered, so some rain is not a total game changer- but it also gives the guests a nice break from the reception hall (which is inside), which made our guests comfortable with spacing out during these times. Luckily our weather was perfect and the photos are literally amazing- there is no better view in Virginia Beach. I would highly recommend the Lesner for a wedding !!

    I could NOT be happier with the service from Lesner Inn. Our coordinator Liz was SO helpful each time we met with her and had questions. The ceremony and receptions spaces were absolutely beautiful. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t change a thing and I would recommend this venue to anyone!

    Girls at the Lesner Inn, Wow! I can’t believe it’s been just about a year since Jon and I came through the doors and knew that this would be the place we say “I do”. You guys are awesome and made planning a breeze even for this bride who didn’t have it all together. Thank you guys so much for everything, our day was perfect!
