In Season Now: Lily of the Valley


One of the most beloved wedding flowers by brides is lily of the valley — a classic and traditional bloom carried in bouquets by many an iconic bride (Grace Kelly and Kate Middleton, to name just a couple!). The bell-shaped buds are delicate and romantic, and really pop against their vibrant, emerald-green leaves. Not to mention the fragrance — heavenly! Lily of the valley is typically a pricey flower but is most affordable in the spring, when they are in season (a.k.a. right now!). Here are some of the prettiest lily of the valley wedding arrangements we've found.

Bouquet of Lily of the Valley and Ranunculuses (above): Surround a cluster of creamy-white ranunculuses with delicate lily of the valley stems for a classic, elegant look.

Lily of the Valley Bouquet: Though lily of the valley looks gorgeous mixed with other blooms, the blossoms also look stunning entirely on their own.
