Ideas For Wedding Bouquets


Ah, Spring, a season of new beginnings, budding new life, longer, warmer days and a great time of year to have a beautiful wedding. The spring also brings in a new range of blooming flowers that can be beautifully integrated into your special day for a truly authentic Spring wedding.

If you have opted for a spring wedding, the seasonal blooms on offer can add a fresh, natural note to the whole day. Part of the beauty of floral arrangements is their delicate fragility, but if you are worried about your flowers being damaged, remember that reputable wedding insurance can offer you financial protection.

Floral arrangements can be expensive: in 2008, the average cost of wedding flowers was £520. Picking seasonal flowers can be gentler on your budget, as most flowers are cheaper when they are in season. Thinking seasonally isn’t simply about your wallet, however, as it also creates an appropriate, connected look for your whole day.

Spring can be an uplifting time to wed. The season itself symbolises new beginnings and as the days start to get longer, everyone seems to have more energy. Suddenly, the frosty landscape is dotted with bluebells, crocuses and daffodils joyfully trumpeting the end of winter. Incorporating these familiar blooms into your bridal bouquet can add a cheerful, authentic quality to your floral arrangements without losing that delicate feel.

Other spring flowers include snowflakes, which are similar in appearance to snowdrops; their bell-shaped blooms have small green dots at the end of each petal and each flower offers a subtle, fresh fragrance to bring a scent of spring to your wedding day.

For a delicate, natural look – and an incredible aroma – sweet peas hold a real charm. They have a long season and come in a wide range of colours. Sweetpea flowers are small and feminine and their stalks send out curled, green tendrils that coil around the bouquet in ringlets. This might even tie in with your hair style, if you have opted for a soft, ringlet ‘up’ do.

If the thought of a scented bouquet appeals to you, lavender can add a calming perfume and a touch of colour to cream arrangements. Countryside blooms such as these create a natural, unfussy look and are best suited to a hand tied bouquet.

If you prefer more structured floral styles, tulips are available all through the spring. One of the advantages of tulips, along with their opulent form, is their astonishing colour range. You can choose between hues that are bold and daring or opt for subtler shades that are romantic and demure. Although tulips have a tendency to droop, your florist should be well equipped to prevent that from happening with just a trusty piece of stiff wire.

If you find yourself worrying about the condition of your flowers before your wedding, bear in mind that reputable wedding insurance can protect you financially. If your floral arrangements are damaged or lost, up to six hours before the wedding or up to four hours after the reception, your insurance company should offer financial compensation.

With quality wedding insurance and a wedding themed with stunning, spring flowers, your future marriage is sure to blossom beautifully!
