We’ve got 10 gorgeous bouquets — made by local florists — guaranteed to get you excited about picking your blooms for your springtime celebration.
Hello, brides with spring wedding dates — I’m talking to you: Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Because today is the first day of March, and that means that whenever your warm-weather wedding is, it’s truly just around the corner. Which means you are on the verge of tackling lots of those fun, aesthetic details.
Perhaps one of the most fun, the most pretty — the girliest — thing you get to do coming up is design your wedding bouquet. It’s what you’ll clutch as you make your way down the aisle, and it’s what you’ll carefully press between the pages of your album, so you can be reminded of its beauty for years to come. So before you sit down with your florist to choose the blooms that will make up that bouquet, we thought we’d give you a little inspiration.
One thing to keep in mind, though, when choosing your spring flowers, says Donna O’Brien, Owner and Creative Director of Northern Liberties’ Beautiful Blooms, is to make sure you’ve got a knowledgeable florist who carries quality blooms. Especially with spring blooms, she says, “Your florist needs to know the life of the flowers you’re using — and when they should be brought in, so that they’re in full bloom on the day of your wedding.”
And to get you excited about the gorgeous flowers that’ll be in season for your wedding—and the amazing colors, textures and scents that come along with them — we’ve compiled a gallery of some of our favorite spring bouquets, designed by florists you can find right here in Philly.
