Are you considering a Spring Wedding?
Spring Wedding Flowers

Are you considering a Spring Wedding? Spring is colourful season with signs of new life everywhere. As the the spring flowers burst into life and everything looks so fresh and green. Snowdrops, daffodils and crocuses start to appear followed closely primroses and violets then a carpet of bluebells in late April to May.

This is an exciting time for Spring brides – and florists – as the choice of flowers becomes wider. Beautiful spring flowers like peonies and sweet peas come in vibrant colours and look fabulous in bouquets or in floral centrepieces.

For a spring wedding your theme may be influenced by the choice of blooms available. In early spring cherry blossom, snowdrops and crocuses will bring a hint of spring to your bouquet.

Spring brides should remember though that the weather is unpredictable so choose your venue carefully. Hope for the best but plan for the worst. You may be lucky and get spring sunshine but look at the your options if the weather doesn’t turn out so well.

Make sure your venue gives you the option to have photos inside as well as outside. A good photographer will look around the venue with you to look at what shots can be done indoors. You may be lucky and get some sunshine but it won’t be warm so your guests will need somewhere to wait in the warm even if you can get some outside shots.

Here are our top tips for a spring wedding…

Choose a venue for indoors and outdoors options
Book early! Spring weddings are becoming more and more popular
Go seasonal – choose flowers that are in season
Be prepared – wraps, umbrellas and some fancy wellies might be required!
A Sunday before a May Bank Holiday weekend might be an option
Spring bulbs as wedding favours are something a little different
