How many of you have been waiting patiently for our spring flower guide? Well, we’re beyond ecstatic that the weather is warming up, the springtime buds are blooming + the time has finally arrived for us to share!
There’s no doubting that spring is THE BEST season for flower lovers, so if you’ve just gotta have peonies – or maybe lilac or sweet peas – present in your wedding day design, you might want to consider choosing your celebration date based on the spring flower season. We wanted to share a mix of colorful blooms that are both well-known and a bit untraditional. A blend of different flower types, textures and foliages is (in our opinion) the best way to achieve a stylish, dynamic look for your bouquet + centerpieces. Need a little more inspiration? Check out our Flowers + Bouquets board on Pinterest to start to brainstorm your floral design!
So out of all the beautiful options available to us this time of year, how the heck did we narrow it down? It wasn’t easy, but we wanted to give you a list of pretties that would work seamlessly together + with other flowers and fillers. (We even created a fun DIY boho bouquet using almost every find above, so you can see just how good these blooms look side-by-side! Stop by next Friday to see the bouquet and get the step-by-step tutorial!)
Our faves for spring include heather (which comes in shades of pink, red, light purple, lilac + lavender), sweet pea, mimosa acacia, clematis, maiden hair fern, lilac, ranunculus (avail in a wide variety of colors in the spring), hellebores, pieris japonica, anemones, double tulips, lavender, Icelandic poppies, delphiniums, jasmine vine and, of course, peonies! We picked a dreamy light pink variety, known as a Sarah Bernhardt peony, but there are so many colors + types available in the spring! Another favorite of ours? The Coral Charm peony! So fun if you want a bright, springtime look to your floral design!
How many of you are making your own bouquets for your spring wedding? A super easy DIY bouquet would be a single king protea bouquet, accented by a few stems of maiden hair fern. Tie with a colorful ribbon + you’re in business!
And you can’t go wrong with another of our faves, the Icelandic poppy! So pretty for adding color to your bouquet!
If you aren’t having a spring wedding, don’t worry, because there are a bunch of super pretty options available to you year-round in most places. Dusty miller is one of our most fave accent fillers and those lotus pods would totally take a desert-y design to the next level. Talk about texture! See our year-round picks below.
