Spring Weddings And Flowers
Spring is the time of new beginnings and when nature brings you a mass of color to replace the drab winter grays. That is why so many opt for a spring wedding. This time of year gives you a fantastic selection of colors of in-season blooms such as daffodils, tulips, hyacinths, and lilacs for everything from the bouquet, to the centerpieces.
Tulips are the most popular choice because not only are they at the peak of their season, but they come in an amazing variety of choices. They are perfect for brides on a budget because they are the most affordable during this time of year. Plus, you have a large selection of colors such as pink, yellow, orange, white and even near black purple.
A classic springtime flower is the daffodil. Traditionally and most popular is the sunshiny yellow color, but you can choose a white variety instead. Size is something else you have a choice with. The standard size is perfect for bouquets and table pieces and the mini-daffodils are the right size for corsages and boutonnieres.
With the right timing, lilacs make a lovely choice. They have a sweet scent that carries in the air and they are available in shades of purple and while. However, since they are in season for a very short time, timing is everything and you may need to choose your date around their peak season.
Orchids are an excellent bouquet choice because of their ability to hold their shape perfectly. Naturally, they come in whites, purples and greens, but you can find some dyed in whatever color you need. The nice part about this flower choice is that the arrangements can be made a few days in advance and still look fresh on the day of the big event.
The hyacinth has a lovely fragrance and a delicate shape, but they last much longer then similar flowers, like lilacs. The little bunches of flowers on each stalk give this a very springtime look, and are available in both purple and white. Many choose to pair this in a bouquet with roses or another flower, or use steelgrass to create a modern look an old-fashioned bouquet.
Choosing in-season flowers for your spring wedding not only allows you to save money with your floral budget, but it also provides you with the freshest flowers of the season. Spring blossoms offer the best and most vibrant colors of the season, and with choices like tulips, lilacs, and daffodils, it is hard to go wrong no matter what you choose.
