Spring is a beautiful season to have a wedding because everywhere is green and fresh and a lot wedding flowers are in season. This means that if you stick with seasonal flowers, you can have a sensational wedding without spending a king’s ransom in the process. To achieve this however, creating your wedding flower arrangement around a theme will make all the difference. Although there are several wedding flower themes, these 6 spring wedding flower themes are exquisite and evergreen.
1. The English Countryside
The English countryside is known for its beautiful and diverse flowers. Amazingly, a vast number of these are available all year round but more affordable during the spring months, make the countryside a tourist attraction. You can transform your wedding into day reminiscent of a beautiful English countryside by making use of flowers such as the Hyacinth, which is available in so many colours like white, peach, blue, navy, pink, yellow, deep purple and red.
Other flowers which will work well with an English countryside themed wedding are Bluebells and Snowflakes. Bluebells come in shades of blue and adds a lovely touch to wedding bouquets. Snowflakes on the other hand are delicate white flowers which have green spots on each petal. Mixed with other spring flowers, they make a beautiful addition.
2. Cherry Blossoms
Cherry blossoms have more of an Asiatic feel as they are popular with Chinese brides and are the national flower of Japan. Cherry blossoms also have a really unique meaning as they are symbolic for virtue and new beginnings. Therefore a cherry blossom wedding flower theme means that you will have really lovely flowers which could also hold deep symbolic meanings for you.
Creating a cherry blossom wedding flower theme is tricky because it is easy to use too much of it and ruin the effect. However a professional would know just how much of these gorgeous flowers to use to give it the overall feel without swamping your wedding with cherry blossoms.
3. Roses Wedding Flower Themes
Roses are available all year round but are particularly reminiscent of spring. The idea is to use a light hand on the red roses and focus more on pinks, whites and other colours. It is less stressful and less expensive to get your hands on the different colour varieties of Roses if you plan your wedding for spring.
4. Pretty Pastel Playground
Although some brides seem to be moving away from pastels, they still have the power to invoke romance when used in wedding flower arrangements. Making use of flowers like tulips, and iris to create vibrant pinks, yellows, reds, purples and whites will give your wedding a romantic hue. Freesia are a particular favourite of mine because they have such a wonderful fragrance and their stems arch gracefully as if peeking out of the designs.
5. A Valentine’s Special
Valentine’s Day is one of the most romantic days to get married on. So if you choose that day to celebrate your love, pick flowers that go with that theme such as red roses, carnations, tulips, orchids and lilies.
6. The Easter Wedding Flower Theme
Easter is a popular holiday in the spring and your wedding flowers can be arranged along that theme. To achieve this, white flowers like lilies make a great addition. However, others such as tulips and seeded eucalyptus will add flair to your arrangement. Pretty branches and Easter Eggs dotted in amongst the designs will add interest.
