Congratulations! If you’re having a Spring Wedding, then you’ve chosen one of the most beautiful times of the year to say ‘I Do’, and with it, the option to incorporate some truly stunning Spring flowers into your big day.
This week, we’re taking a look at the flowers that lend themselves perfectly to a Spring Wedding, and some floral trends that have given us a spring in our step!
It’s really important to bear in mind that the month you marry has a bearing on which types of flowers are available, and at what price. Whilst our wonderful florists are able to secure almost anything at any time of year, if a particular bloom you’ve fallen in love with isn’t in season, then you’re going to have to pay a massive premium to secure it. By choosing flowers that are in season, you’ll find you have access to much greater availability, and also be in a much better position to secure a good price.
Spring Wedding Stars
We’ve put together a list of some of our favourite flowers that are in plentiful supply during Spring to help you plan your Spring Wedding floral stars.
Equally suited to a colourful, country, rustic wedding as to a contemporary style wedding, tulips come in a vast array of colours, meaning you’ll be able to easily find a shade that complements your colour scheme. They are elegant and streamlined and look stunning bunched simply together, or combined with greenery.
Ideal for dreamy, romantic weddings, ranunculus are like a small peony and are very stylish and elegant. With their delicate close layers, they are absolutely stunning when styled simply with just a few other accent stems.
Romantic, delicate and stylish. Peonies are a popular choice but can be extremely pricey so if you’re opting for a Spring Wedding, you’re in luck as these beauties are in season. They are never cheap, but at this time of year they’ll be at their most affordable.
Quite a traditional choice, the rose is a hugely versatile flower as it’s available in literally hundreds of varieties. With a wide range of colours and sizes to choose between, roses are perfect for use in everything from bouquets and buttonholes to centrepieces and dramatic arches.
Gerberas are quirky, bold and fun and ideally suited to a bride who is planning a colourful wedding day. With their daisy-like looks, these cheerful blooms are perfect for contemporary weddings and look wonderful when used as buttonholes and on wedding cakes!
These large headed blooms can be a very cost-effective option as due to their large size, only a few stems are required to make a big impact! These look great as table centrepieces or created into hanging balls on ribbon for younger bridesmaids to carry in lieu of a bouquet or posy.
These short stemmed flowers are highly scented and are wonderful in posies and bouquets. They are available in beautiful shades of lilac, yellow, orange, pink, white, cream, red and purple and it’s the red, orange and white varieties that tend to be the most highly perfumed.
Manor By The Lake Loves… Spring Wedding Floral Crowns
We absolutely love to see a bride or bridesmaids sporting a stunning floral crown. There’s something delightfully romantic about these wonderfully natural creations that are no longer only spotted at boho-chic weddings. The trend has spread and we now see plenty of stunning country brides wearing flowers in the hair instead of jewelled hair accessories and veils.
We love the fact that floral crowns can be as delicate, or extravagant as you like. From simple, small crowns of gypsophila, to full on crowns bursting with ranunculus, roses and gerbera heads, this is one trend begging to be indulged at a Spring Wedding.
At Manor By The Lake, we would love to help you plan a Spring wedding and we even have our very own in-house Creative Designer who can work with you to create bespoke floral arrangements for your special day!
