Fresh Florals For Spring

We seldom see weddings at Bread & Chocolate that do not incorporate flowers in some shape or form. We are no experts on florals; however,  we've been inspired by some past spring weddings and we’ve done our research. We have curated a selection of colorful, in season flowers for your spring time “I dos.”

Spring is the season for flowers! For your arrangements and bouquets think soft and natural, with an organic focus. However, be bold with your color choices take advantage of the variety of color options and nontraditional buds, they will add dimension and upbeat energy while also being different, flexible and unique.

Tulips
A classic selection especially for a spring wedding. Tulips come in a variety of soft and bright colors to match any color scheme you wish. You can opt for an entire bouquet of these elegant flowers or incorporate them with other spring time blooms.
Meaning: declaration of love, honesty, happy years, memory

Succulent and Cactus Accents
Add these non traditional floral picks to your bouquet for a pop of soft green or purple. Succulents and cacti can complement a number of other botanicals, so it's easy to incorporate these blooms into any bouquet or centerpiece. Because these buds or stems are not as fragile as your regular wedding flower, they are extremely easy to ship, making them easily accessible for your spring time nuptials. 
Meaning: enduring harmony

Peonies
Unlike succulents or cacti, these fragrant blooms are a more traditional pick. These soft and delicate flowers are often imported year around and are most accessible from April to June. Peonies come in a variety of colors and look beautiful as full blooms or as unopened buds. 
Meaning: beauty, welcome, bashful

Hydrangeas
This fragrant and full flower that can stand on its own is at the height of it’s season in March. These flowers come in a range of colors from white to deep purple.
Meaning: devotion, remembrance, boastfulness

Anemone
These flowers have a striking jet black center, which creates an interesting contrast to their light petals. Their petals are very delicate and sometimes nearly translucent and come in a variety of cheerful colors. In season from October to May, making them a great selection for an early spring time wedding. These anemone’s look beautiful garnishing our naked cutting cake.
Meaning: expectation, protection

Greenery
Did you notice all of the beautiful greenery in each picture? Pantone's color of the year for 2017 is greenery so expect to see a lot of organic, vibrant greenery throughout the year!
