Ask any florist the best time of year to get married and the answer will be unanimous: spring. Beautiful, lush spring blooms are abundant at the flower markets right now and one of our favorites? Muscari (also sometimes called grape hyacinth). Delicate and sweet, muscari comes in white and pale-pink hues, but the most common varieties are in beautiful shades of blue, making them one of the rare naturally blue flowers (perfect if you're working with a blue wedding color palette or searching for a subtle "something blue"!). Here are a few of our favorite muscari wedding arrangements.

Blue Bridal Bouquet (above): There aren't very many naturally blue flowers but this bouquet by Amy Merrick combines the best of them: muscari, forget-me-nots, and delphiniums.
