Spring symbolizes new beginnings and is a fabulous time to get married - with the flowers to match! 💐 Not sure what flowers to choose or what is in season? Here is a list of some of our favorite spring flowers to pick from:
These unique flowers are known for their black centers. The most popular anemone color is white but also comes in ivory, red, pink, orange, yellow-green, blue, purple, and red-purple. Anemones work well for both bouquets and centerpieces. They are great for winter and spring weddings as the season runs from October through May.
Grown in greenhouses, these gorgeous blooms are often mistaken for peonies. One of the main benefits of these flowers is that they are typically available year-round. Garden roses can be utilized in bouquets, boutonnières, floral installations (ceremony arches, flower walls, or hanging centerpieces), and table centerpieces. Some well-known colors of these blooms are pink, red, yellow, purple, orange, and white.
These very fragrant flowers are typically blue but can also be orange, pink, white, purple, yellow, and red. Hyacinth is very popular for bouquets and gives great height to table centerpieces. They are famous for their fragrance and typically bloom in the early spring.
This gorgeous yet needy flower is one of my favorites. It calls for constant water and ideal temperatures (not too hot and not too cold). You have more than likely seen white and blue hydrangeas, but they come in green, purple, pink, and red. These lush flowers are best suited for table centerpieces and floral installations - since they wilt quickly when not in water. As you can see below, paired with roses the hydrangeas do an amazing job of filling in the middle of this centerpiece.
If you love bold colors, these purple beauties are a great choice. They can also be white. Unfortunately, they do have a short blooming season. Lilacs are great for bouquets and have a sweet fragrance as well.
Such show stoppers! Orchids are so versatile, working well in wedding bouquets, centerpieces, and other floral installations. Phalaenopsis and cymbidium are brides' favorites. They come in many colors such as white, yellow, red, blue, and light pink. They are a higher-priced flower, so may want to use them sparingly. Orchids are perfect for beach or island weddings as many are grown in the tropics.
One of the most stunning, sweet-smelling flowers you can incorporate into your wedding decor. Timing is key for peonies, mid to late spring is the perfect time for these flowers. The most popular colors are white, blush, orange, yellow, red, and pink. Some even change color as they bloom. Peonies work exceptionally well in bouquets, boutonnières, wedding centerpieces, and floral installations. They are also one of the most expensive flowers you will buy.
These are beautiful, delicate blooms are super popular. March is the ideal time for ranunculus, even though they bloom in late winter and early spring. They come in many colors, such as red, burgundy, pink, cream, apricot, purple, and pale yellow. Ranunculus adds great texture to boutonnières, wedding bouquets, and centerpieces. They are paired well with anemones, garden roses, and peonies.
Great for late winter and early spring weddings. These beautiful, bright flowers come in yellow, white, cream, orange, red, purple, violet, also can be seen in a pretty, pastel pink. When you are looking to make a statement or keep it more refined, tulips are a great option for wedding centerpieces.
On average couples spend about 7-11% of their wedding budget on florals. Let's break it down, if your budget is $50,000, your projected floral budget will be somewhere between $3,500 and $5,500. Just like everything else in your wedding, this is based on many factors - for example - your preference, your wedding location, your style, and your wedding party size and guest count.
Pro Tip: Try to stick with in-season and locally sourced flowers to lower costs so you make it rain (flowers).
