Spring, with its palette of vibrant hues and soft pastels, awakens the world with its bloom. It’s a time of renewal, making it a poetic backdrop for beginning the journey of marriage. For those with an eye for beauty and a heart for the natural world, spring is indisputably the best season for wedding florals. Here’s why this enchanting season reigns supreme for tying the knot amidst a floral fantasy.
Spring offers an exclusive array of flowers that are truly season-specific. While global growers can supply various blooms year-round, there’s a marked difference in quality and price when flowers are in their natural growing season.
This is the time when the blossoms are at their peak – more vibrant, fragrant, and affordable. These seasonal specialties fit a realistic budget without compromising the lush and opulent vision of your special day.
Here are a few of our most sought-after Spring flowers from years past:
Peonies, the beloved darlings of wedding florals, come into their prime from mid-April through July. These blooms are the epitome of bridal elegance and are fervently sought-after for their lush, voluminous petals. In spring, peonies are not only more stunning and fuller but also more accessible, adorning weddings with their romance without the exorbitant off-season cost.
Another couple's favorite, ranunculus, is pivotal in crafting contemporary wedding designs. The “Clooney” variety, with its large, enchanting heads, and the “Butterfly” variety, known for its delicate, ethereal appearance, are both springtime treasures. These blooms add depth and sophistication to any arrangement, making them a stylish choice for modern nuptials.
More flowers that are quintessential and are in-season in spring:
Anemones: These early spring beauties, with their bold centers and delicate petals, are a symbol of anticipation, fit for a wedding.
Double Tulips: Known for their extra petals, they resemble a peony and offer a stunning alternative or complement to other blooms.
Lilac: Their intoxicating fragrance and lush panicles of purple or white flowers bring a sense of nostalgia and romance.
Viburnum: With globes of blossoms that add texture and greenery, viburnum is a fresh addition to any arrangement.
Sweetpeas: With their sweet fragrance and ruffled petals, they’re the epitome of cottage garden charm.
Helleborus: Also known as Lenten roses, they bring an air of sophistication and understated elegance.
Hyacinth: Available as standard hyacinth with its classic shape or the more whimsical “Grape” variety, known as Muscari, these flowers are renowned for their heady scent and intense colors.
In the Washington DC area, spring ushers in a season of cool, comfortable weather. It’s the ideal climate for an outdoor celebration, where the air is fresh, and the light is golden, perfect for those cherished wedding photographs. The mild temperatures also mean guests can revel in the outdoor splendor without the discomfort of summer heat.
Beyond the cultivated beauty of wedding florals, the city and its surroundings contribute their own botanical wonders. The famous Cherry Blossoms, with their fleeting but breathtaking show, become nature's own wedding decor. Dogwood and Redbud trees dot the landscape with bursts of color, and Azaleas bring lush, vibrant hedges to life. Spirea, Forsythia, and a host of other blooms create an ever-changing tapestry of natural beauty, ensuring that every week of spring offers a unique and magical setting for a wedding.
