The Best Bouquets For Spring Weddings

Spring brings some of the best flower varieties used for bouquets such as the rose, peony, tulip, poppy, hydrangea, narcissus, amaryllis and gardenia. From clean and elegant white posies to opulent bouquets with plenty of colour and texture, read our tips on how to choose the perfect bouquet!

Lush White Bouquets

Many brides prefer white blooms in their bouquet since they look timeless and very elegant. It is the best choice for all-in-white weddings and we love a classical mix of roses and peonies or a streamlined bouquet made from white tulips. Green makes the perfect contrast, so why not add a few leaves to your bouquet and give it more definition. With its puffy snowball shape Viburnum is also a fabulous addition to your white bouquet, while gypsophilia and Queen Anne’s lace can be scattered in between big blossoms which will definitely add a delicate touch to your posy.

Vintage Pastels

Vintage Pastels

While they might look too pale at winter weddings, soft pastel hues are just perfect for spring. Monochromatic bouquets with roses and peonies are perfect for any type of bride because they are very elegant and you can wear them either with a traditional white ball gown or match it with a trendy vintage dress. From soft pink to sky blue, pick a shade that corresponds with your wedding décor or matches your bridal accessories. You can also mix different shades to create a romantic, retro-style bouquet in muted colours like washed out peach or plum and blush pink. You can use details like pearls, lace or an old brooch to add some vintage flair to it.

Bright Blooms

If you want to brighten up your bridal outfit with a colourful bouquet, use flowers in vibrant shades instead of light pastel tones. There are many adorable spring florals to choose from such as vibrant gerbera, delicate freesia, stylish ranunculus and elegant lisianthus. Anemones also come in vivid hues so you can combine them with many other varieties, while bright yellow billy buttons which are available year round work well in any colourful bouquet. You can contrast two colours like yellow and blue or create a wild mix of shades from bright orange and red to lemon yellow and lime green.

A pop of white is a great idea if you want to make the connection to your wedding dress, so then add one or two blossoms in ivory. We also adore opulent cascading bouquets with a blend of very different colours from whites and greens to tender pastels and sharp, bright tones.
