Flowers can easily become the WOW factor for a wedding. From alter to dinner tables, your floral arrangement can have a big impact on your entire wedding’s design. As you think about your florals it’s important to think both in terms of your budget and the season. If you’re planning to incorporate any lighting think about those details in tandem with your floral vision. The two really go hand and hand. Visit our Pinterest page for more inspiration here!
Rose, Sweet Pea, Hydrangea & the beautiful Parrot Tulip. Four flowers that are very common but not used enough! Meghan Perlow, founder and owner of Poppy Floral, suggests Tulips for stretching a budget, “Even the ruffled parrot tulips are affordable, and open fully once placed in an arrangement, opening throughout the evening adding drama and life to your table settings.” Perlow also suggests a color range of purples or raspberries through her suggestion of Sweet Peas. “Plus they smell amazing!”
New Leaf Flores suggests carnations to stretch a budget which we’re loving. They share, “Believe it or not there are some really unusual and beautiful Italian carnations that have been introduced into the market in last last year.”
Many florists are gushing over flowering Branches this season. From Speira, to Larkspur, cherry blossom and Quince, these branches are creating quite the buzz. Gregory Costa-Saint John creator of Flou(-e)r is “over the moon excited” to begin working with Cherry Blossom this season. Specifically? “7’ high pink cherry blossoms that make a huge impact with just a few stems that we will infuse with hydrangeas, roses, larkspur along with accent greens to bring a true Spring has arrived feeling.”
If you do plan to make your flower design the main attraction in your wedding’s aesthetic, here are the to-die-for, splurge-worthy, spring selections. Kim Lamothe, the creative director of Greenlion Design, suggests a floral choice that many of us many not be familiar with, Fritillaries. “Look them up!” Lamothe urges, “they’re SO gorgeous!” These beautiful plants droop over at the very top. The bulb, almost upside down, creating an elegant hanging light effect.
With a limited season, Costa-Saint John rushes at the chance to take advantage of Peonies during the Spring. “With a very limited season and high demand these blooms aren’t the least expensive blooms but certainly make an impact with their heavy petal count, frilled edges and big blooms. Always a favorite of ours.”
Last, but certainly not least, the ever so timeless Lilac. Poppy Floral uses the natural features of Lilac to their advantage, “[they] smell heavenly, and drape beautifully in arrangements” says Perlow. “They also come in various shade of purples and even white, which is incredibly elegant.”

The truth is I hated planning my own wedding. I felt like I was going it alone and was surprised by how hard it was to find partners who embraced my vision. Thankfully, the guy was worth it and that experience is what led me to become a wedding planner. After a decade of planning luxury weddings I am bringing my process to you.
