wedding is the daffodil. This bright yellow flower brings a sunny
flair to any celebration. Other good choices for your March wedding
are Bird of Paradise, Calla Lilies, and Tulip.
April -- The daisy is the traditional flower
for the month of April. If daisies are a little small for your
taste, then how about lavender, rose, carnation or freesia? These
are all great choices for an April wedding.
May -- For the month of May, why not go with
the traditional lily-of-the-valley? Other great choices for May
wedding floral arrangements include rose, gardenia, orchid, and
love in the mist.
To incorporate spring's delicate beauty into your
wedding celebration, why not try wearing spring wildflowers in your
hair? For a spring wedding, your colors draw from the beauty of the
natural world. Soft pastels in shades of pink, peach, purple, and
even soft blue are great spring choices. Green is also very popular
for spring weddings and reflects the abundance of nature.
No matter what colors you end up going with, you're
sure to have a gorgeous spring wedding if you decorate with lots of
beautiful spring-blooming flowers!
