Daffodils are a trumpeting symbol of spring so one might suspect pollen. Fortunately, daffodils produce less pollen than most flowers; they are generally pollinated by insects rather than the wind.  If your dream wedding day looks like a celebration of spring, daffodils are a vibrant and iconic bloom of the season. While they're not entirely pollen-free, daffodils are definitely hypoallergenic flowers for weddings.  Daffodils are available seasonally, typically December through April, and offered in both standard and mini sizes. Color options range far beyond white and yellow; choose from unexpected tropical pink to orange blossom and many mixed color combinations in between. If new beginnings fits your wedding day theme, Daffodils will say "spring is here" in your wedding bouquet, ceremony arch and centerpieces.

This wedding flower is also great for those who are allergic to pollen because Hyacinth has very low levels. However, if a strong floral fragrance will also trigger your allergies, then Hyacinth is not for you. Hyacinth is often available year-round but crop production may fluctuate especially during the summer months. The garden-inspired look of Hyacinth is bright and festive with clusters of star-shaped blooms that give the illusion of a single cylindrical bloom.  Hyacinth color options include hot pink, lavender, peach, coral, yellow, blush and purple. For outdoor and garden wedding designs Hyacinth is a stunning and colorful, hypoallergenic wedding flower.
