Thinking of getting married this spring or next? Your florists will have a wonderful variety of seasonal flowers that create a romantic, charming spring style for your wedding.
Spring is the time for new beginnings, rebirth and growth! What more perfect season to choose to get married and embark on a new chapter in your lives together!?
As we make suggestions for those of you planning your weddings, we always like to remind you that you don’t have to choose every flower and foliage type that we’ll use at your event. That’s what we’re here for! We love collaborating with brides, but always suggest you leave the final decisions up to the florists, since a lot depends on availability and Mother Nature’s mood.
When we are talking about the spring seasonal flowers, we’re talking about those that grow in our region from March through May. Some spring flowers, such as peonies, will be very difficult to find during other times of the year. Others may be widely available year-round but freshest and most beautiful in our region during the spring. If you’re lucky, your local botanical garden’s wisteria arbor may be in bloom at the perfect time for your ceremony! How stunning would that be?
You can always mix the seasonal flowers with flowers that are available year round, such as roses, carnations, gerberas, and much more. Be open minded as to flower usage, cause as we said, Mother Nature is the ultimate decision maker in what we can source for your specific event.
Many of the spring seasonal flowers are known for strong aromas. Choose flowers with a fragrances that isn’t overpowering but rather adds another subtle layer to the atmosphere of your event.
Here are our suggestions for adding in subtle, sweet fragrance to your wedding:
Again, when working with the items that are in season at the time of your event, you’ll stronger, brighter, more aromatic product than during other times of the year.
Spring hyacinth blooms are also a wonderful and unique option for spring weddings. They have a lovely scent and spire-like shape that adds interest to your wedding flower arrangements. If you’re having an outdoor event, using a pre-existing wisteria arbor as your backdrop is a great solution for your ceremony florals.
