We went straight to the source to find the best blooms for your buck—Denise Porcaro of Flower Girl NYC helped us select the most affordable options available in different seasons, colors and sizes. Whether you're looking to create a lush, romantic arrangement or a festive, unstructured bouquet, your florist can help you achieve the look you want without compromising your finances.

1. Alstroemeria

Also known as Peruvian lily, this patterned flower comes in more than 150 different color and marking combinations, ranging from white and golden yellow to red, pink and purple.

Blooming season: late spring or early summer

2. Baby's Breath

Baby's Breath ceremony aisle decor"Baby's breath has made a major comeback, " Porcaro says. "Lots of brides like baby's breath in or on its own in big arrangements. It looks gorgeous with long, trailing pastel-colored ribbons for a more ethereal bride, and it's nice to make flower crowns that are delicate and airy."

Blooming season: summer

3. Carnation

Carnations typically make an appearance at weddings because of their lengthy, sturdy set, ideal for tall arrangements, and their reputation as one of the longest-lasting blooms after being cut (hello, wrist corsage). They also have unique serrated petals that add lovely texture to a bouquet.

Blooming season: late spring

4. Chrysanthemum

Otherwise known as mums, these pom-pom-like blooms boast lush, exotic blossoms in multiple colors—without the extravagant price tag. Just specify which type of stem you prefer: Florist mums are the big, spidery blossoms, while garden mums are smaller, more compact flowers.

Blooming season: late summer and fall

5. Daisy

For a cheery springtime bouquet, white daisies are a classic (but never boring) go-to—whether they're helping out as a filler flower or making up the entire arrangement. They naturally grow white blossoms, but thanks to food coloring they can be tinted purple, blue, neon green—almost any color of the rainbow.

Blooming season: late spring

6. Freesia

For a long-lasting floral, consider this fragrant stem—freesia can last up to three weeks in a vase. As many as eight blooms grow on one stalk, and they come in multiple colors like white, yellow, red, purple and pink.

Blooming season: spring

7. Gladiolus

If centerpieces with height speak to you, this towering, ornate blossom fits the bill. It can grow between two and six feet tall, comes in a variety of hues and looks striking enough to stand on its own (so you don't need as many!).
