If you are having a spring wedding, you are definitely choosing a prime time for flowers, because those flowers are some of the lushest and beautiful of the year! However, one of the most surprising expenses for any wedding is flowers.  if you're choosing to have them; hey, non-floral decor can be great too!

One of the most reliable ways to save money and get more bang for your buck! When it comes to wedding flowers your florist only uses flowers and greenery that are in season. Using flowers that are out of season means you are importing flowers, which greatly increases the cost. Also, if you are getting flowers greenhouse, they just won't be that beautiful.

Style: Preppy / Classic

We can fall in love with all varieties of tulips (these have fringes, but we love parrots, doubles, and French tulips too! ), and each type has a different style and feel. They come in different colors that can fit your wedding theme. To most couples, tulips symbolize love, and one that is for the long term, as these flowers tend to hold up very well. They’re found in many home gardens, and give you that comforting, familiar feeling.

Another perfect flower for a boutonniere, freesia is a sweetly fragrant spring favorite with up to 10 small bell-shaped flowers on each stem. They are very fragrant in a good way. They have a huge range of colors.  In fact, they have one of the largest in the plant kingdom. They are not the cheapest flowers although some rarer varieties can be very expensive, they are not as expensive as peonies! They’re quite delicate, and they can definitely make an impression. Pair lavender-colored freesias with voluminous peonies for that eternally romantic vibe.

Snapdragons

Style: Boho

We love snapdragons. They're whimsical, come in plenty of color choices, and look statuesque whether in a bouquet or used sparingly with mixed flowers. Price-wise, these are less expensive. These annual blooms are able to endure cold weather and are perfect for fall and winter weddings. This adds to the fun, off-beat wedding vibe.

Gardenias

You would think gardenias were a Southern bride’s choice blooms for a bouquet. With their strong, sweet aroma and large size, gardenias make perfect boutonnieres. These types only come in shades of white or ivory and but be warned, they can turn brown when they start to wilt. They are widely available, yet very fragile. So while you might find them in abundance, make sure these are handled with care to avoid them wilting quickly.

Roses

Style: Boho / Traditional

Irises are very unique, quite distinctive, and a very special kind of flower that brightens your bouquet, especially when you’re looking for that beautiful pop of color.  In our opinion, irises are greatly underestimated Texture and little frills, similar to the effect of a sweet pea. Irises are very striking, but give off that dainty feel at the same time. If you’re having a blue-themed wedding, you’ll want these in your floral decor, or best, your bouquet.
