Spring wedding flowers

Many couples underestimate how important flowers are on their wedding days. The truth is, they will likely be visible everywhere you turn. Many couples choose to have flowers as decoration during both the ceremony and reception.

Additionally, it’s likely that the bride and bridesmaids will have their own spring wedding bouquet. Smaller flowers are often ordered to go alongside suits on the big day.

Of course, it’s your wedding, so there should be no pressure to do things traditionally. You should always choose each element of your wedding exactly how you want it to be. At the end of the day, it is your wedding day!

Some people also choose to use seasonal blooms as part of their wedding cake decoration. Read our blog on wedding cake table design ideas.

Simplicity does not need to be boring! Spring is the season of new beginnings, which means a lot is possible when it comes to the flowers in your bouquet. Some people choose to have many smaller flowers in their bridal bouquet, whereas others might choose to have fewer, larger flowers.

When it comes to a simple bouquet, you can still add plenty of colour. Maybe you’ll choose to have a neutral-coloured bouquet or a very bright one. You could even combine the two!
