Spring Wedding Flowers

If you're having a spring wedding, you're definitely choosing a prime time for flowers. Flowers that bloom in spring are some of the most lush 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 cool too!).

One of the most reliable ways to save money and get more bang for your buck when it comes to wedding flowers is to have your florist only use flowers and greenery that are in season. Using flowers that are out of season means that you're importing flowers which greatly adds to the cost. Plus, if you're getting hothouse blooms, they're just not going to be quite as lovely.

So what flowers are in season? Here are 15 of our favorite and most popular.

Peonies are versatile flowers—they pair well with lots of other floral varietals, but when used alone in a bouquet can end up looking a little too spherical. So diversify that bouquet!
