Spring brides have all the luck, don’t they?
With some of the most fragrant, lovely, and delicate flowers at their fingertips (including many Southern favorites!), it’s hard not to carry a gorgeous bouquet in spring!
Flowering bulbs, such as tulips and hyacinths come into season. Peonies are available from late spring to early summer; they are the favorite flower of many brides. Another popular spring wedding flower is the Hyacinth. The fragrant flowers of the Hyacinth come in shades of red, blue, white, orange, pink, violet, or yellow.
Many of the spring seasonal flowers are known for their fragrance, choose flowers with pretty fragrances that are not overpowering. Just a few stems of Oriental lilies can fill the air with a strong sweet perfume, so they are best used in larger ceremony locations. Stephanotis, freesia, stock, tuberoses, sweet peas and English Garden Roses bring the outdoors in and are truly a pleasure for the senses. They have a light sweet fragrance and are perfect for mother-of-the-bride and groom corsages and bridal bouquets.
Spring seasonal flowers are the most economical for weddings held in March, April and May. You can mix the seasonal flowers with flowers that are available all year round, such as roses, lilies, gerbera daisies, orchids, anthuriums, and other tropical flowers.
