As winter revs up in the Big Easy, it will have many dreaming of sunnier days and warmer weather. It's the perfect time to start thinking about spring; and that includes your budding spring blooms.
The beginning of spring, March 20, is a little more than four months away. If you haven't picked your florist, or your wedding flora, yet then this is crunch time. (Typically, the high-demand vendors like florists should be picked around nine months out, no later than six months away from the wedding date.)
In the early days of Let Them Eat Cake, we chatted with the brain behind Poppy and Mint Floral Company. Destiny Pinson shared with us the perfectly appropriate blooms for every season.
For spring, Pinson suggests lilac, hyacinth, anemones, tulips and peonies. We absolutely love these picks because they are bright, colorful and embody the best parts of the season. Pinson also noted that peonies are currently the most requested wedding flower, so adding them to a wedding bouquet keeps the bride and her wedding beautiful and on trend.
So whether you choose peonies or a lovely bunch of tulips, you're wedding will be singing of springtime.
Lagniappe: If you're looking to put together a few winter flowers for an upcoming shower or engagement party, amaryllis, privet berries and helleborus are sure to have your flowers full of holiday spirit.
