Flowers play a vital role in cementing the elegant, romantic theme every wedding should be about. Used throughout your ceremony and reception spaces, your choice of flowers can reflect your wedding colour scheme, communicate your big day style, enhance the historic setting, add a truly luxurious look and feel, and successfully frame your day as the unforgettable occasion that it should be.
By opting for seasonal flowers, you can set the scene and complement the season you’re marrying into perfection. In-season flowers also look their very best, which will add another wow factor to your wedding day as Vicinity Weddings explains:
“When you buy flowers in season they are grown and cut when they are naturally thriving, so they are at their strongest, biggest and therefore, most beautiful. Tiny roses on weedy stems at Valentine’s Day are the consequence of them being grown and cut when nature is not ready, whereas roses in June and July are unrecognisable from their February counterparts.”
As a season well known for its natural beauty and stunning floral displays, spring is a popular time to say “I do” and offers tons of floral inspiration with its in-season blooms. Read on to discover the top spring flowers to include in your bouquets and buttonholes…
Daffodils are bright, eye-catching blooms that we haven’t been able to escape since the beginning of spring.
As a symbol of new beginnings, however, the daffodil is the perfect seasonal flower to represent this new phase of your relationship. Pair daffodils with more understated varieties to ensure they are the stars of the show.
Forget-me-nots are a stunning filler flower that packs a serious colour punch. These tiny blue flowers look great with white roses (another in-season flower), providing a vibrant pop of colour that looks stunning all season long. They can also be used to create beautiful bouquets and buttonholes all on their own, with their bushy appearance able to provide a shapely, sophisticated finish or a more rugged, rustic touch.
Peonies may be a popular wedding flower all year round, but they are officially at their blooming best during May.
This wedding favourite is available in a plethora of colours, meaning you’re certain to discover a shade that suits your unique wedding style. This variety can be used to create the prettiest peony bouquets. Representing a happy life and marriage, peonies have the meaning to go with their stunning good looks.
Thanks to their popularity, peonies aren’t the most budget-friendly option. You can however team peonies with more cost-effective blooms like daisies, spray roses and gypsophila to create a spring-inspired, seasonal bouquet that’s bang on budget.
For another iconic springtime look, why not opt for the strong, structured and simply stunning tulip? Accessible in a multitude of colours, the timelessly elegant beauty of tulips can be used to create equally graceful bouquets, buttonholes and displays. They can also be paired with more intricate flowers and fillers to add colour and a varied, delicate texture.
