Spring wedding flowers

Monday, October 8th, 2018

If you’ve just got engaged and you are wondering which flowers are available for your spring wedding- look no further, these are some of the most beautiful: –

Peonies are a Spring brides dream flower, they are big, fluffy, lightly scented and truly romantic -real show-stoppers. They have a limited season from early spring through to the end of June and are available in various shades of pink, (from blush to nearly red)- ‘Duchesse de Nemours’ is the favoured white bridal peony, they also come in buttery cream, burgundy and of course the ever-popular coral peonies ‘Coral Charm’ and ‘Coral Sunset’.

They are grown in the UK during spring and early summer, in Jersey, Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire. Peonies come in both single and double verities and team up beautifully with other Spring flowers or are perfect just by themselves.

Some of our other favourite spring flowers include: –

Hellebores – available through winter and early spring.

Hyacinths –  readily available throughout spring they are highly scented and work best in ‘hand tied’ designs.

Muscari – (grape hyacinths) available from spring to early summer, they add a lovely texture to bridal bouquets.

Narcissus –   available throughout spring, they come in single and double varieties- perfect for the rustic style wedding, mixed with berries, thistles, daisies and lots of foliage.

Ranunculus – (buttercup) is available from spring to early summer, there is a vast array of colours to choose from. They work beautifully with the ‘boho chic’ style of wedding flowers.

Syringa – (lilac) Very fragrant, available spring to early summer.

Tulips –  Popular and an economical flower choice. Available winter through to early summer. They are showy and generally brightly coloured.
