With so many varieties of flowers available, it can be difficult to pick a favorite. Color, fragrance and design all matter when planning your perfect day. Check out some popular and favorite Spring wedding blossoms:
Generally a classic wedding flower, roses are considered a symbol of beauty and love. More than three thousand varieties of roses are grown commercially, are available year-round, and are surprisingly affordable. This flower is available in solid and bicolor varieties, as well as striped and tipped. And though roses are associated with fragrance, not every rose is scented.
Gardenias are known for their intoxicating scent. These flowers are available in large three- to four-inch blossoms, as well as a miniature variety. Gardenias make lovely corsages and hair accessories, and look beautiful tucked into a floral bouquet or in a centerpiece.
The elegant calla lily symbolizes “magnificent beauty”. Two types are commonly available, giving you options for boutonnieres and tall floral arrangements and bouquets. Ivory is usually the most popular color, but this lovely flower is also available in yellow, orange, pink, and dark purple.
Tulips represent “consuming love” and “happy years”. These flowers are usually available most of the year, and pricing can range from very affordable to very expensive. Tulips are available in a wide range of colors including white, cream, pink, yellow, peach, magenta, red, and purple.
This popular flower has a big bushy head and comes in intense shades of pink, white, green, blue, burgundy, and purple. Hydrangeas are perfect for floral arrangements, bouquets, and boutonnieres. The wide variety of color available make it a great choice for any wedding color theme.

The lily of the valley comes in white and rosy-pink. These tiny flowers have an unmistakable aroma, and while they are available all year round they can be expensive. Lily of the valley looks lovely as a few stems infused in a bouquet or centerpiece with its wonderful fragrance.
