Seasonal Spring Wedding Flower Inspiration

Great news that you are marrying in Spring as the flower choice in the UK is so pretty! However, just how do you choose your wedding flowers if you are marrying in the UK spring months of March, April or May? Allow me to share some of the seasonal flowers available in the UK, from early Spring, right through to late Spring to help pick your dream wedding florals.

It’s important to note that flower blooming time changes. Every year availability and timing of wedding flowers can alter due to the weather. Be sure to keep in mind that you may need to be flexible and work in cohesion with your wedding florist to ensure your perfect wedding blooms become reality.

One other tip is to remember that some flower types have a vast range of varieties that vary wildly in colour, shape and size. There is just so much choice!

Spring may just be one of the best times of year for wedding flowers in the UK. Are you ready to discover all the bouquets and florals? Me too.
