Spring brides really have all the luck — this time of year, the flower markets are overflowing with gorgeous in-season blooms, including one of our favorites, pieris japonica. These pretty blooms resemble lily of the valley, with their small bell shapes. They're romantic and look beautiful spilling out of vases and urns, all the while keeping their wonderful structural, geometric shape. Pieris is usually available in white, but sometimes you can find varieties with a soft-pink tint on the bloom. Here are some of our favorite pieris japonica wedding arrangements.

Rustic Centerpiece (above): This reception-table arrangement by Studio Fleurette features tons of textural elements, like peegee hydrangeas, pieris japonica, and privet berries, in a square wood vessel.

Pieris Bouquet: Pretty pieris also looks stunning on its own, as demonstrated by this chic bouquet by JL Designs.
