Spring is a time of birth, awakening, warmth, and beauty. And a springtime wedding can be symbolic of all of those things enfolded in a couple’s love. Likewise, wedding bouquets are especially lovely and memorable with spring flowers that are in bloom just in time for the big event. Here are five of the best spring wedding flowers to consider for your floral bouquets and arrangements.
Said to represent love, lilacs are a popular choice for wedding bouquets. They bloom in early spring making them perfect spring wedding flowers. Rich in fragrance and yet moderately priced, they are lush, small star-shaped florets in pyramid-shaped clusters. Lilacs give a lovely, woodsy, wildflower feel to bouquets and arrangements.
A soft, delicate flower, tulips are perfect for wedding bouquets. Tulips are one of the first signs of spring’s arrival, so how ideal for a spring wedding. They are fairly inexpensive and are very versatile. Therefore, they can be used in large quantities throughout your affair, whether it’s a formal ballroom wedding or casual outdoor event. And tulips come in a wide variety of colors to fit nearly any color palette.
Best known for their amazing, sweet fragrance, hyacinths are beautiful spring flowers that can be found in blues, purples, pinks, and whites. It’s a popular flower for brides looking for a unique way to incorporate blue into their wedding décor. Hyacinths are perfect for low arrangements, since their stems are not very long. They look beautiful in small centerpieces, on cakes, and in hand-tied bouquets.
A fun, bright and versatile flower, Gerbera daisies come in a huge variety of colors from bright orange, yellow, and pink to the softest shades of peach and pink. Although they are lovely in spring bouquets, they are actually available year-round, making them less expensive than some other flowers. Use them by themselves or mix them with roses and tulips for a stunning look.
With their fluffy, full blooms in white, cream, yellow, pink or red, peonies are gorgeous in spring bouquets. They can be pricey, but their strong fragrance, fullness, and vibrant color are popular with brides. To save money, consider using peonies as an accent flower within an arrangement of more affordable blooms. Since they are so voluminous, fewer stems will still make a big impression.
