Spring is a wonderful time of the year to get married, it’s now as popular as the summer. If you’re planning your spring wedding, here is a guide to some of the most popular spring wedding flowers.
Currently the most popular spring wedding flower is the peony. It has a wonderful large bloom with a mass of delicate petals. It always amazes me how such a large bloom can come out of such a small bud.
Peonies come in a variety of colours including classic white, the very popular soft pink, deep pink, peach and burgundy.
They have a beautiful fragrance and I just love having them in the workshop as their fragrance fills the room. They are a great choice for vintage and country style wedding themes as well as the soft romantic wedding look.
Peonies work well in posy bouquets on their own as seen in the photo at the top of this page, created with the pretty Sarah Bernhardt peonies. They also work well with roses and freesias as seen in the photos above and below.
Here you can see how I placed them in-between the tiers of a wedding cake, I teamed them with white hydrangeas.
The flower meaning: Bashfulness.
A beautiful delicate flower with a vivid dark centre. The anemone comes in a variety of colours from white, red, deep purple, burgundy, cerise pink, pale pink and a vivid blue/purple.
They work really well for vibrant spring wedding colour themes.
Anemones look really good when teamed with other spring flowers including tulips (see photo above left). They also look fantastic on their own as seen above decorating this rather delicious looking chocolate wedding cake.
In the photo above left you can see how I have combined the anemones with roses, freesias and ranunculus to create this very rich looking bridal posy bouquet.
The flower meaning: Sincerity.
Ranunculus are one of my favourite flowers, I just love the range of colours this pretty little flower comes in. They are available in white with a pink strip (as seen in the photo below), white, burgundy red (as seen in the buttonhole photo below) cream (also seen as a buttonhole below). Other colours include vivid yellow, orange, peach, dark pink and red.
This flower has the appearance of a giant buttercup with its mass of delicate petals. It works very well in posy bouquets for a natural relaxed country and wild flower wedding look. You can team it with roses and freesias as seen above. It also works very well with other spring flowers such as anemones, astrantia and sweet williams.
The flower meaning (I like this one): I am dazzled by your charms.
If you want to add a splash of colourful sunshine yellow into your spring wedding flower theme then there is nothing more perfect than the daffodil. It works really well when used on mass. You can see in the photos below how I have used the sunny yellow daffodils to produce the handtied posy bouquet this bridesmaid is holding. For the flower girl I used the pretty smaller headed version.
The small tête-à-tête make into perfect buttonholes when clustered together. You can see the ones I made for this spring wedding in the photo below.
You can also get daffodils in white and there are many different varieties available.
Flower meaning: You’re the only one.
