After hearing from Sally about how to choose your wedding flowers seasonal flowers are the best way to keep the cost of your wedding flowers down. So here are her top picks for spring flowers and for those who love a bit of symbolism all suggestions will spread some wonderfully good karma on your wedding day!
The Main Attraction
Iris' Hyacinths Tulips
While the purple and yellow is the most commonly recognised Iris they come in lots of different colours, as do hyacinths and tulips.
The Iris commonly represents wisdom, hope, trust, and valour. The Hyacinth is the flower of the sun god Apollo and is a symbol of peace, commitment and beauty, but also of power and pride. The meaning of tulips is generally perfect love. Like many flowers, different colours of can carry different meanings. Red tulips are most strongly associated with true love.
Viburnum Opulus Pussy Willow Eucalyptus Tree Fern
Most Viburnum flowers are bright white. This means that these flowers share in the general colour symbolism of innocence, purity, and calmness. In Chinese tradition, pussy willow represents the coming of prosperity. Eucalyptus is said to have purifying cleansing effects that clear away negative energy, while the tree fern symbolises eternal youth.
Because of their long-lasting blooms stock flower meanings include lasting beauty, happy life, and a contented existence. Stock flowers are also known as gillyflowers. Again they come in a range of colours to suit any palette.
