Spring wedding bouquet ideas
Looking for inspiration for your spring wedding bouquet? Look no further! Here, we bring you the prettiest seasonal picks to give you plenty of ideas for your spring wedding.
Spring is the perfect time for romantic arrangements in more muted tones. This pretty spring wedding bouquet in pale pastel shades boasts a delicate and feminine selection of spring flowers including china blue hyacinths, Muscari, cream and peach roses and freesias. The hyacinths and freesias will add another dimension to your wedding flowers and leave a beautiful scent at your venue.
Take your cue from nature and choose a yellow colour theme for your spring wedding. Partnered with zingy green foliage yellow flowers create a very fresh, zesty look. In this contemporary style bridal bouquet gorgeous sunny ranunculi, craspedia and yellow roses are arranged in a compact posy punctuated with green accents and subtle touches of silver grey.
Bright and beautiful
Celebrate your post-winter wedding with a medley of colourful blooms. This rainbow-hued line-up is vibrant and playful with plenty of luscious greenery — just the way we like it. The flowers are a real celebration of the season too. Gorgeous parrot tulips, cosmos flowers and clematis conjure up the image of a spring garden in bloom. As the weather gets warmer, bouquet shapes tend to get looser, helping to achieve that natural style that is so popular with spring brides.
Cool, contemporary and chic this monochrome wedding theme with a pop of pink is perfect for a sleek city wedding in spring. Combining roses, hydrangeas and carnations with fragrant spring blooms such as sweet peas and hyacinths means this pretty bouquet is as fragrant as it is beautiful.
It’s the most coveted flower of the wedding season and it’s easy to see why the beloved peony is an all-time favourite for brides. Not only is it the perfect mix of softness and texture, its flower meaning – ‘a happy marriage’ – could not be more fitting. Combine big blousy peonies with equally charming speciality roses for a full on romantic look. The inclusion of wispy thlaspi gives this picture perfect bouquet a whimsical, bohemian vibe.
With their romantic associations of love and romance, it is no wonder that roses are an enduringly popular wedding flower. For a spring take on a timeless wedding bouquet choose sumptuous speciality roses (we love David Austin varieties) in soft peach and ivory and combine them with elegant Calla lilies and a little greenery. Shower bouquets are back in vogue and we think this beautiful design looks stunning, spilling from the bride's hands.

Flowers to wear in your hair
If you love beautiful blooms and aren’t content with just carrying them down the aisle, why not wear flowers in your hair on your wedding day? Whether you’re dreaming of a being a boho bride or a Grecian goddess there’s a flower crown or floral headdress to suit every wedding theme and hair style. Here’s some ideas on how to wear flowers in your hair on your wedding day.
Wedding flower arch
Spring brings warmer days and longer evenings, which means that the wedding party can enjoy time spent outdoors. Enhance the natural beauty of your wedding venue’s outdoor space with a wedding flower arch. A beautifully decorated arch is not only a great focal point for the celebrations it makes a real feature for photographs too.
Flowers for the wedding venue
Carry the spring theme through to your wedding venue with an explosion of seasonal blooms arranged on tables in tall glass vases. Look beyond the obvious when thinking about how to decorate your wedding venue. Chair backs, wedding favours, flower walls and floral wreaths are just some of the ways you can use flowers to add the WOW factor to proceedings and set the scene for a real celebration.
