Which flowers are in season in February I hear you ask?! More and more spring flower varieties are becoming available now that we are in February, however my firm staples that I love to use in wedding flowers are narcissi, ranunculus, hyacinths, muscari and tulips. They offer total spring joy and can suit a huge range of wedding themes. For those of you who are looking for a fresh, spring pallette within your wedding flowers then these blooms will provide you with just that.
This bridal bouquet contains white narcissi, white parrot tulips, blue muscari and eucalyptus foliage. Tightly packed in a lovely hand-tied this is a gorgeous bouquet for a laid-back spring wedding. The pale blue muscari just lifts the white flowers and the scent of the narcissi really does add to the depth of the bouquet. Tulips provide great green foliage on the stems so the tiny leaves shooting up through the bouquet adds a different dimension of green, working well alongside the eucalytpus foliage.
Spring buttonholes work great as tied little bunches, here I have tied together muscari and narcissi with pale grey foliage tied off with a quirkly little ribbon. This type of eclectic mix of buttonhole is becoming more and more popular with couples wanting that relaxed, countryside feel to their wedding day.
Hyacinths are also a beautiful spring flower to use within weddings. They are a hugely perfumed flower and can last for ages. I like to use hyacinths as cut flowers, or as spring bulbs in containers. A real true, blue flower, hyacinths can look stunning with the paler blue of the muscari and white flowers. Here a bridal bouquet features hyacinths, muscari, white ranunculus and narcissi, with eucalyptus foliage. I added in some scabiosa seed pods for extra texture and to give the bouquet a modern, quirky edge… I Love this bouquet!!
If you are looking for a fresh palette of blues, ivory and pale grey then these spring wedding flowers may be for you! Tulips are available in a huge array of colours, however the muscari, hyacinths and narcissi work so well within the blues, purples, ivory and cream colours. If you are getting married and are looking for wedding flowers then get in touch, I would love to hear from you!
