Spring Wedding Flowers

Although summer is the height of wedding season, more and more brides are choosing a spring wedding for their nuptials. If you’re wondering which flowers are best for your big day, here are a few suggestions:

Ranunculus: These blooms are often available throughout the year but spring is when they are at their prime and outshine their summer counterparts because of their large blooms and sturdy stems.

Anemones: The dark or black center on these delicate blooms adds instant elegance and drama for a chic, sophisticated look. Anemones are available in white, fuchsia, red and purple/blue.

Tulips: Also available mostly year round, tulips still say “SPRING” and are most readily available at this time of the year. Their unique nature causes them to continue to elongate after they are cut and their stems often curve toward the light.

Daffodils: If they work with your color palette daffodils are a lovely choice because you don’t get to see them too often in wedding work making your bouquet instantly different. They work well with pastels but are bright enough to fit right in to a bolder color scheme as well.
