Actor Robin Williams said:
Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!”
It’s such a poetic and sentimental season, and the wedding flower choices are just as romantic. Spring is bursting with blooms. It rivals summer in terms of the range of floral options available.
According to wedding planning experts, when it comes to selecting flowers for a spring wedding, color is king. This season is frequently associated with femininity, and it shows with the many pastel-hued floral options. Try out light lilac peonies for a splash of subdued, almost understated elegance. Add soft sophistication to a garden wedding with a centerpiece of poppies and ranunculus in muted sorbet colors such as mint, peach, and pale butter yellow. Flowering bulbs such as tulips are great choices also. And as bouquet fillers, dusty millers are great choices as its “powdered” look complements the flowers’ soft tones.
For those who have the means to splurge on wedding flowers, Lily of the Valley, also known as Our Lady’s Tears, is definitely worth every penny. These flowers are quite rare and only bloom briefly in April and May. Lily of the Valley is really exquisite with small, inverted bell shaped flowers that appear to be trickling down like tears. Again, this is one of the most expensive floral options out there and was used in Kate Middleton’s bridal bouquet.
Here’s a decor tip for your spring wedding: At the entrance to the venue – whether it’s the reception venue or the actual wedding venue – add a vine with budding flowers to serve as a delicate border. This definitely screams spring and will set the mood and ambience as your guests arrive.
Another tip: As mentioned, spring is about colors, and your floral arrangements can easily turn into dizzying kaleidoscopes. Here’s a secret from the experts. Make sure that each color appears at least twice in an arrangement. This will limit your use of color and will make look everything coordinated and festive without being too matchy-matchy.
