Choosing Your Spring Wedding Flowers
If you're getting married in the spring, it may feel a bit overwhelming to choose which blooms you want to order. While you may love the look of a certain flower, don't forget to take these factors into consideration as well:
1.) Climate and Weather
What does spring weather look like where your venue is located? For some, spring weather means a chance of rain and mild temperatures, and for others it means lots of sunshine and warmer days. Keep in mind that more delicate flowers, such as the treasured Butterfly Ranunculus, will wilt faster in heat than hardier flowers such as daisies.
2.) Color palette and style
An essential part to ordering your flowers is understanding your overall vision. Will your spring wedding flowers be vintage-inspired, or full of modern flare? Are you getting married in a barn, a garden, or a chic museum? Is your color palette full of pastels and neutrals, or bursting with pops of bright color? As you browse for blooms, think about the overall style of your arrangements, and make sure to check to see what colors are available.
Staying within budget is a challenge for any wedding couple, but fortunately there are ways to get your spring wedding flowers without breaking the bank. Ordering wholesale flowers, and DIYing them with your wedding party, friends, and family is a great way to save money. Certain flowers also come with a higher price tag. It's up to you to decide where to splurge and where to save.
4.) Desired greenery
Finally, you'll want to choose the right type of greenery to match your flowers. Do you love sage greens like eucalyptus and dusty miller, or are you drawn to the rich green hue of ruscus? We also offer DIY greenery packs that come with an array of greens for your bouquets, centerpieces, and more.
