Spring Flower Guide

 

Spring Wedding Flower Ideas

Are you planning a spring wedding? If so, this spring flower guide is a must have! Knowing what flowers are in season during your wedding planning may not only help you save money but also help you stay seasonal with your decor. I also created graphics below to show what spring flowers grow in what colors. Since I'm not a professional floral designer, I have the help of Esme from The Fleurella to make sure I have all my facts right. She will specifically discuss what flowers typically grow in spring and how that may effect their price. Enjoy, and I hope you find this helpful as you plan your spring wedding!

From Esme regarding how choosing flowers that are in season may effect their price.

  • "When a flower is "in season" it means that it blooms naturally that time of year, in your part of the world.  Some flowers are similar to fruit.  Sure you can get strawberries in January, flown in from somewhere far away, but they won't be half as splendid or abundant as the ones you eat in July from your local farmer.  Likewise, you can get peonies in the winter, but they will be slightly less expensive, but more beautiful come May.  However, for a florist, "in season" can be a complicated answer, as some flowers that typically bloom in summer, can be just as good, and priced the same, in the winter.  Its best to talk to your florist about what you want, when it looks it's best, and if there is a better time of year to get it.

There are some flowers that definitely have a season, when they are more readily available, slightly cheaper, longer lasting, and/or more beautiful.  In my opinion, the best, most splendid flowers will alway be what are grown naturally in your area."

With that said… here are some of our favorite spring flowers for weddings!

Year Around Flowers

Regarding flowers that are available year around...

  • "What is "in season" in a garden does not always apply to the floral industry.  Some flowers are abundant year around, and since the demand is consistent, the prices do not really change season to season.   Roses are a perfect example because in the garden they bloom around June, however, for florists they are readily and dependably available year around because they are flown in from places like California and South America.

Some that are good year around:  Roses, snap dragons, carnation, alstroemeria, lily, chrysanthemum, gerber daisy, eucalyptus, stock, wax flower, orchid."
