Choosing your spring wedding flowers is important.
The idea of starting out on your married life together, just as the year is starting, is a traditional one that has been enjoyed by couples all around the world for centuries.
New flowers bloom, and that means you have a lot of choice for your wedding flowers. However, you do need to bear in mind that this is also one of the busiest times for florists. Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day both occur in springtime and this can lead to florists being very busy. Also, the price of flowers is at a premium due to the increase in demand.
This means that it is even more essential that you plan early, and consult a florist as soon as possible. They will be able to advise you about the best types of flowers for you to use as your spring wedding flowers.
The cheapest flowers to use at any time of the year are those that in season at the time. Of course, you can have them shipped in by your florist from other areas, but this adds to the cost.
Spring Wedding Flowers

Tulips, daffodils, irises and hyacinths are among the many wonderful spring bulb flowers.
Tulips are particularly ideal as they are available in a wide variety of colors.
If you are looking for white wedding flowers, then you may want to consider Lily of the Valley, Daisies, Lilies, or white Roses. All of these look stunning on their own, or combined with other, more colorful flowers.
Lily of the Valley has a lovely, delicate fragrance that enhances any occasion, but is perfect for table pieces and other decorations.
Tulips, Roses, Iris, Peonies, Primroses and Ranunculuses all have different colored varieties for you to choose from.
Your florist will be able to advise you as to which flowers compliment each other perfectly.
You may not have a budget that includes full rose bouquets, for example, but these could be combined with other less expensive flowers to produce an equally stunning effect.
The fresh green of the many different new leaves that grow in spring can also be used as natural fillers for bouquets.
Also remember that many small fruit trees can also be used to compliment your spring flowers. These are available in decorative pots, which provide a wonderfully fragrant, and interesting natural border for example, if you are having an outside wedding.
Colors Of Spring Weddings

Fresh clean colors like white and green are ideal for your wedding flowers as they match the feeling of newness that the season brings with everything bursting into life.
But modern brides tend to choose pastel colors for spring. The subtle hues of lilac, brown and pink are great wedding theme colors.
The wide array of colored spring wedding flowers that are available means that you can choose almost any color in them and find flowers to match.
The more traditional flower colors that many brides choose tend to be ivory or pale colors including pale lemon and lavender, but you can go for more brightly colored bouquets with flashes of red or fuchsia or other colors to suit your theme.

There are so many spring wedding themes to choose from. They can be inspired from natural elements from the season or the colors of spring. Below are some ideas for your wedding themes.
Use peacock feathers in your wedding flower arrangements even in the groom's boutonniere. They match perfectly with white flowers like tulips, roses and hydrangeas.
Use bird cages to decorate your wedding aisle, or even make them as your table centerpieces. Place artificial doves inside the cage or you can even place pomanders inside for the decoration.
Use fresh herbs in all your wedding flowers. Include rosemary, basil or thyme into your bridal bouquets and centerpieces. Gather a small bunch and turn it into the groom's boutonniere. Your groom will love them.
Citrus are a great accent to spring. Use citrus slices in your glass centerpieces. Use them in your round table centerpieces. They will look great among other bright flowers like gerbera daisies, daisies and mums.
Add butterflies into your wedding decorations, including your wedding cake. They create a garden look for your wedding and adds that spring feeling into your flowers.
