HI, Nicky,
If you live in an areas with cold winters, the best way to have flowers for next May is to grow them in a greenhouse. Keep them cool in the winter, watering every two weeks or so (or more if they are too dry) and then about a month and a half before the wedding, raise the temp in the greenhouse. I live in Southern California with mild winters. My 'tender' fuchsias are in pots and flower all year round. They lose some leaves in autumn/winter but since we don't get frost/freezing, they don't stop blooming.
All the best,
Kathy C
