Must Have Flowers For Spring Weddings 2019…

As a wedding florist I get so excited about every season change… but there is something I truly miss about spring flowers during the wedding season… I thinks it’s because some have a natural cascading flow to them, which is essential in my work, to give that natural flowing look! In no particular order here are my must have flowers for spring weddings…


Dicentra… bleeding heart…
These little beauties have such a short season, just two months. They come in pink and white, I have both growing in my garden. I love them so much I have them tattooed on my foot, and featured in my own wedding flowers. For me it’s the natural curve with it’s dainty little heart shape flowers that almost drip from stem. They look just stunning trailing from bridal bouquets and table centrepieces…

Syringa… Scented lilac…
Don’t be fooled by their delicate little flowers, this is a statement flower and rivals the very much loved Hydrangea, in fact I think I will name this the winter Hydrangea! They mainly come in white, and of course lilac! I love to team these with delicate focal flowers and textured foliage, while they soften into the background creating lots of texture and depth. These beauties also featured at my wedding…

Ranunculus…
Seriously, who doesn’t love them! These blousy delicate blooms come in such a wide variety of colours and sizes, and the season can stretch as far as 5 months starting from late November to late April. They’re the perfect way to create texture within floral designs with their thousands of layers and petals….


Hellebore…
My heart flutters just a little when I see these little fellas. The season is pretty long for these guys too, some flower in my garden from December until June. Again I love to use these for their bendy, curving stems with heavy heads that create perfect natural flowing shapes to bridal bouquets and shorter wild looking arrangements such as urns. They make a cracking button hole too. The colour range is so unusual, always muted tones, moody hues, and speckled finishes.

Tulips…
Every year I say to my husband ‘please don’t buy me roses, grab a bunch of tulips’. I love nothing better than a vase packed with tulips and nothing else! They don’t need it. They’re a flower that just keep giving, they grow and change right before your eyes, even when you think they really should go in the bin they’ll gently curl over the side of the vase with their last breath of life looking as beautiful as ever! The variety of textures, shapes and colours make these an awesome product to play with too.

Fritillaria meleagris… Snake’s head…
There are many varieties of fritillaria that all have their own beauty, however meleagris is the one! Slender delicate stems push through the soil, tipping into a plum, or white bell shaped head, that has most intricate pattern I’ve ever seen… It resembles snake skin, hence its nickname… Sadly they don’t last very long. I get ever so excited when I see them pushing through in the garden. I love to use them in close up work and bridal bouquets where they can really be seen.

So go on girls… get a little inspiration from this blog and start planning your spring wedding flowers!
