Flowering bulbs, such as tulips and hyacinths bloom in early spring. Peonies are available from late spring to early summer and they are a must in a spring wedding! This is the time of the year where this flower isn’t so expensive!
Spring seasonal flowers are the most economical for weddings held in March, April and May. You can mix the seasonal flowers with flowers that are available all year round, such as roses, lilies, gerbera daisies, orchids, anthuriums, and other tropical flowers.
Here some ideas for your spring wedding flowers!
- Hydrangea. I have several hydrangea in my garden. My dad collected these beautiful plants from ’70 and my grandma before him. Hydranges make a nice presentation in both bouquets and centerpieces. It is a very full flower which gives the arrangement an extra fullness. They come in light blue, white, pink and green. You can use dry flowers too!
- Flowering Branches. When I was a little girl in spring our house was full of forsythia branches and it was the most obvious sign that spring has sprung. If you don’t like yellow flowers you can choose cherry blossom, apricot blossoms, apple blossoms. They are sure to make an impact in any tall centerpiece.
- Hyacinths. I adore these fragrant flowers. unfortunately my bulbs aren’t strong enough and they bloom for one or two years, not more. They are not only visually stunning but their fragrance can be your signature perfume on your wedding day. Hyacinths are lush flower with adds dimension and body. They come in shades of red, blue, white, orange, pink, violet, or yellow.
- Ranunculus. They are especially beautiful during spring time. Their thin delicate petals give a very romantic appearance. They come in a variety of beautiful colors for most every color scheme. Stylish like a peony but with a little more edge, these beauties pop when added to simple floral arrangements.
- Peony. This beautiful bloom is an all-time favorite for brides. In Lazio, Italy there is a huge peony garden that usually open around Easter. Peonies are a luxuriant flower which make a very lush and charming arrangement. They are adored for their delicate petals which give them a soft romantic appearance.It’s the perfect mix of softness and texture, and the pastel varieties complement so many wedding color palettes.
- Tulips. Gorgeous at a rustic wedding or a colourful modern affair, tulips are a great choice for couples who want a streamlined look. Tulips are of course the most popular spring flower. They come in a variety of sizes, shapes and colours. They can be incorporated into both centerpieces and bouquets due to their extensive varieties. They look great both closed and open. They are scentless which make them a great choice for those that prefer not to have florals with a fragrance. The best place to see a massive tulip garden is Amsterdam, Holland of course!
- Sweet pea. This elegant purple climbing flower adds color and texture wherever it's featured. Gorgeous at a lilac-themed wedding or highlighted as an accent color, sweet peas are a spring star! I tried so hard to have sweet peas in my garden but my chickens love these plants so much that they eat every peas I plant!
- Rose. It’s a must have! Classic and beautiful, you can never go wrong with a rose bouquet, boutonnière, or centerpiece. I love especially english roses but they can be extremely expensive!
- Lilac. I love lilac fragrance! If you are looking for a pink or purple spring flower lilac is for you! Fill your ceremony or reception with this sweet-smelling flower and invoke memories of childhood fun, first loves, and sunny afternoons.
- Calla. Simple and sweet, calla lilies are beautiful wrapped in a soft, satin ribbon and held lovingly by a bride or bridesmaid. they came in several colours like white, pink, orange and black too.
- Lily of the Valley. It was made popular by Grace Kelly and more recently Kate Middleton is a classic spring wedding flower. It is both delicate and sophisticated. For someone looking for a more traditional bridal bouquet, this is an excellent choice.
- Magnolia. One of the most elegant spring flowers, the magnolia is best carried alone down the aisle for maximum wow factor.
