After the snow melts and the flowers bloom, it’s time to finally pull off the wedding of your dreams! The beauty of planning a spring wedding lies in all the floral possibilities that are not as accessible during other seasons. You can expect to find a whole array of flowers with plenty of different colors, shapes, sizes, blooming periods, and price ranges. Here are a few suggestions of popular spring wedding flowers that are widely available during this vibrant season.
Aside from the ever popular roses, tulips are probably the most widely-used spring flower. They have an absolutely enormous variety of color options including: peach, white, pink, orange, lavender, deep purple, red, variegated (2 color mixes), and even a rare black! What’s especially great about these flowers is that they bloom at the dawn of spring in mid-March all the way through May, which allows for plenty of flexibility in picking a spring wedding date. Tulips look great with any combination of other flowers including calla lilies, peonies, and baby’s breath, which are in bloom at the same time. Lisianthus is also a great pairing option if you are hosting a late-spring or early-summer wedding.
With their distinctive style and vibrant color, tulips also look just as beautiful in a bouquet all by themselves–it’s simplicity at its finest! Having a bouquet of tulips says, “Take a deep breath because Spring is here and the weather couldn’t be better!” It’s easy to see why these cheerful buds are often portrayed as the symbol of spring! Make your bouquet simple and sweet, wild and passionate, or colorful and modern, thanks to the tulip’s versatility, there’s nothing you can’t do!

The gerbera daisy is a classic spring bloom with tons of sunny personality. With their long, bursting petals and colorful centers, these flowers are the perfect match for a sun-kissed wedding. What makes the gerbera daisy particularly great is not just its vivid appearance, but also its lengthy growing season. Gerbera daisies bloom in early spring and can go all the way through summer into early autumn, which leaves a lot of room to choose the best wedding date and still get your flowers at in-season prices. We recommend pairing gerbera daisies with other classic blooms like roses, hydrangea, or sunflowers for an early summer wedding. Hypericum berries also add a lovely touch to gerbera daisy bouquets, especially if you want a little more texture and height in your design. You can also use gerberas alone for a sweet and minimal look. There are plenty of colors to choose from (including: white, light pink, magenta, yellow, blush, peach, bright red, orange, deep scarlet, bi-color and more), so you can mix and match to get just the right color combination. When compared with other popular wedding flowers, gerbera daisies tend to be fairly inexpensive, making them a great choice for brides on a budget!
Ranunculus is a great choice for any wedding bouquet, especially since it blends so seamlessly with all other flowers. Ranunculus plants thrive in warm, drier climates, making them ideal for an Arizona wedding. The blooms have a tightly ruffled appearance similar to that of a peony or garden rose, with delicate, paper-thin petals. Although it is slightly more expensive than tulips or gerbera daisies, ranunculus is still a rather inexpensive wedding flower. It is a wonderful alternative if you don’t have the budget for peonies or garden roses. Also, even if you do have a budget for these more luxurious wedding flowers, adding ranunculus to your bouquet of peonies and/or garden roses is a great way to increase the volume and size of your design. These flowers are fairly small, so they are almost always mixed with larger blooms that will take up more space. However, bouquets made up entirely of ranunculus are not unheard of. Ranunculus comes in plenty of colors and different varieties too, so it is easy to get either a uniform or a varied look while using only ranunculus flowers. With their fun and wild stems, ranunculus also makes an adorable centerpiece when placed in a variety of glass jars in the center of your tables. Is ranunculus the perfect wedding flower for you?

Anemones are simply unmistakable–They’re big, they’re showy, and you really can’t miss them in any bouquet. They are a bit rarer than some of the other spring flowers and much more delicate as well. Anemones will cost you a little more, yet you don’t need many to make a statement in your wedding bouquet. Try mixing them with full and fluffy peonies for a luxurious look, or with white roses for a beautiful twist on a classic style, or with dahlia, wild grasses, and soft spray roses for an English garden inspired bouquet. For smaller, auxiliary additions, baby’s breath and hydrangea are perfect picks to fill in some of the open spaces and add more dimension to your design. Anemone is available in a pearly-white hue with either a black center or a deep blue center. It is also available in rarer shades of red, pink, orange, and even purple!
