There are few things more beautiful than a spring wedding; the sun is (hopefully) shining, the birds are tweeting and all the most beautiful flowers are in bloom.
If you’re having a spring wedding, it makes sense that you make the most of the flowers that are in bloom during the prettiest of seasons and fill your bouquet with beautiful spring flowers.
Which flowers are in bloom in spring?
Large, flamboyant starry trumpets in white, red, peach and even striped varieties.
Perfect for: Larger bouquets and centrepieces where you need height. Can also look great as the focus of a bouquet.
Nothing says spring quite like a sunshiney daffodil. Creates natural-looking arrangements. Available in 50 varieties, ranging from tiny to large yellow or white flowers with single or double blooms.
Perfect for: Displaying en masse for inexpensive table centres.
Loved by brides and Instagrammers alike, thanks to its large, fragrant blooms. Colours include white, pink and the palest peach.
Perfect for: A simple bridal bouquet. Peonies are also available in November so are popular for winter weddings too.
Lily of the Valley
Tiny, bell-shaped white flowers with a wonderful sweet fragrance and fresh green foliage. Rather expensive so you’ll probably need to find other flowers for table centres.
Perfect for: Small, delicate bridal posies. It looks wonderful on it’s own or as an addition to a larger bouquet.
Available in more than 100 varieties. The brilliant pinks, purples and reds are popular for weddings.
Perfect for: Brightly coloured wedding bouquets. The oversized variety looks lovely displayed on its own.
Small, highly scented flowers in bright colours. One of the prettiest varieties is ‘Ballerina’.
Perfect for: Headdresses, bouquets and buttonholes. Particularly good in posies for younger bridesmaids and flower girls.
A buttercup-like flower available in a variety of colours and a popular choice for brides.
Perfect for: Adding to single-colour bouquets and simple table decorations at the reception venue.
A classic favourite available in a wide variety of different colours. Can also look very contemporary.
Perfect for: Unfussy bouquets simply bound with ribbon. The frilly-edged parrot tulip is ideal for table arrangements.
