Flowers and Weddings - Enough Said

With the dawn of the spring season comes new beginnings, fresh growth and new adventures. Flowers and weddings are at the top of the chart during springtime.  With spring comes beautiful flower options for your wedding. One of the first things to do when planning your wedding is to choose your color scheme. Flowers that lend themselves beautifully to a spring wedding include tulips, daisies, lilies, roses, blossoms and of course my favourite hydrangeas. Colors can be soft and dreamy or vibrant and bold. Choosing wedding colors is a very personal choice, go with colors you really love not ones that you just settle with. This is your big day and you want it to reflect your taste and style.  Here are a few fabulous color combinations that would be gorgeous for a spring wedding.

Lavender with ivory

Purple with silver

Pink/coral with melon green

Baby blue with chocolate brown

Yellow with white

A visit to a florist or garden nursery can give you ideas for wedding colors and show you the types of flowers that are available and blooming in the spring. Once you’ve chosen your color scheme you’ll want to find all kinds of things that coordinate to ensure the perfect wedding. There’s the save the date cards, bouquets, table centerpieces, invitations, wedding postage, table seating cards and so much more.

I’ve been busy working on some wedding designs, so inspired by the flowers of spring. Here are a few below, if you’d like to see more come by my store Designs by Shell for a visit.
