Let us help you to check something off your wedding list with our guide to Spring wedding flowers. In a time where we are ever conscious of the environment and reducing our own carbon footprint, buying seasonal flowers is far greener than shipping in flowers from overseas. There are so many questions when it comes to wedding flowers, we will help to answer some of them and give some suggestions of beautiful Spring wedding flowers.
Spring Wedding Flowers
Firstly, what is your colour theme for your wedding? Having a beautiful bouquet that matches or compliments your colour theme is vital. Whether that be a pop of colour as you walk down the aisle, or even for your centre pieces. What better for some colour than the beautiful colours of Spring wedding flowers.
Have you thought about what different flowers mean? The names of flowers come from Floriography, the language of flowers. So, it’s important to think about the meaning of your wedding flowers. For example, Roses symbolise romance, love beauty and courage. Peonies symbolise bashfulness or good luck.
Next, what is your wedding style? Everyone who gets married will have an idea of how they want their wedding to reflect themselves and their relationship. Matching your flowers to your wedding style is a great way to bring together the final details. Whatever your style, whether it is minimalist, rustic, romantic, there are so many choices when it comes to your flowers.
For those with a minimalist wedding, a great way to keep your flowers minimal is having one type of flower, a great Spring wedding flower is Cherry Blossom. It’s beautifully versatile with opportunities for bouquets, centrepieces, and some cascading decorations. You can also add some greenery for as a single colour that will also keep your Spring wedding flowers quite minimal. Having Choisya in your arrangement will give a striking contrast to your flowers but keeping them along the theme of your minimalistic wedding.
Cherry Blossoms symbolise a time for renewal
Maybe you are planning a rustic wedding, a perfect rustic Spring wedding flower arrangement with earthy, natural colours will complement the wood and lace that are traditionally seen at a rustic wedding. A great start to your bouquet is having some succulent green foliage that will contrast the natural colours of your flowers. However, Spring in the UK is not the easiest time to find greenery, so start your arrangement with some Evergreen Heather and add in some Pittosporum. For your rustic Spring wedding flowers, Lily of the Valley will complete your bouquet. This arrangement will make a beautiful centrepiece at your wedding breakfast.
Lily of the Valley symbolise purity, joy, love, sincerity, happiness and luck
Romanced in Spring
Now, a classic romantic wedding really does deserve a classic floral arrangement. We think the best place to start a romantic Spring wedding flower bouquet is Tulips. In flower from early Spring, they will brighten up your arrangement with lots of colour, from cream and pink to dark purple and violet. They are so versatile, they look amazing in a bouquet, centrepiece or as decorations for your reception. A great way to enhance your bouquet is with flowers that are different heights too. Hyacinths for example, would make a varied addition along with some Trailing Rosemary.
Tulips symbolise a perfect and deep love
Now, you can’t have a Spring wedding flowers blog without mentioning Daffodils. The most common flower in the UK in Spring, with more varieties than you can imagine they would make a standout bouquet or centrepiece for your reception, complemented with some beautiful Honeysuckle and Twisted Willow. The Honeysuckle will add some amazing greenery to the Daffodils along with gorgeous white flowers that will highlight the captivating Twisted Willow.
Daffodils symbolise rebirth and new beginnings
Many couples choose a wedding scent theme for their celebration. Rather than a unnatural scent, your Spring wedding flowers will make the room smell wonderful as your guests arrive. Often, herbs can be used as well because they have a stronger smell. Just be careful not to overwhelm your guests. Great herbs are basil and lemon balm, both have strong but delicate scents that will complement your bouquet.
