Use grape colored hyacinths to create a wedding bouquet that looks and smells pretty.

Spring and summer brides have some of the biggest variety of flower choices when it comes to seasonal blooms. Use this seasonal flower guide to select your blossoms to create a beautiful spring or summer wedding bouquet. These flower choices range from pretty pastels to bold hues to fit every personality and budget. 

Spring
April showers bring May flowers, or so the saying goes. Here are some of the best seasonal flowers to use in your spring wedding bouquet:

Ranunculus: These luscious blooms are native to Asia but can be found in cool, dry climates throughout the United States. Ranunculus​es feature paper-thin petals that create a beautiful, cascading ruffle effect. This spring and summer flower comes in a variety of colors, including white, orange, yellow, pink and red. 

Anemones: These flowers are extremely pretty, but delicate. Keep these flowers reserved for the wedding table arrangements as they require ongoing hydration. You wouldn't want your bouquet to start wilting halfway through the ceremony, would you? We love white and purple anemones with a black center as they make the petals stand out even more, but you can also find this flower in pink and red shades with a yellow center.

Delphiniums: If you're hosting an outdoor or garden-themed wedding venue, the delphinium flower, commonly found in English gardens, is a great choice for a rustic, just picked from the garden feel. Blue, purple and white hues look great in a spring wedding palette paired with mint bridesmaid dresses.

Hyacinth: Create a beautiful wedding bouquet that not only looks pretty, but smells pretty as well. Hyacinths come in shades of pink, purple, white and yellow, and are known for their sweet, intense fragrance. Use hyacinths to accent your bouquet for a subtle look and fragrance, or create a large bouquet that's easy on the eyes and the nose.

Lily of the Valley: This luxurious bloom only comes around once a year. Use this flower to create a beautiful, cascading wedding bouquet fit for a princess. Create an all-white wedding bouquet using the lily of the valley combined with white freesia, white lilac (also a spring seasonal flower) and green hypercium berries to complete the look.

Summer
Although the summer flower list is significantly shorter, these blooms create knockout wedding bouquet designs:

Iris: Use irises to create a standout summer bouquet with a bold pop of color. The purple flowers with yellow centers are the most recognizable, but you can also find irises with yellow and white petals. Pale purple blooms are great for creating a pastel bouquet, while darker purple blooms really stand out against pink bridesmaid dresses.

Peony: This summer flower typically blooms in late May and early June, so it's not around for a long period of time. If your wedding happens to fall within that time frame, think about incorporating this delicate and delightful-smelling blossom into your bouquet. The peony flower head is quite large, so it only takes a few to design a luscious, full wedding bouquet. Red peonies are a bold wedding bouquet color choice, whereas white and pink peonies make a soft statement.

Allium: Have fun with alliums in your wedding bouquet design. These flowers are reminiscent of the bloom Horton carries around in the classic Dr. Seuss book, "Horton Hears a Who." Add alliums in purple, white or lavender to create a whimsical bouquet.
