Spring weddings are especially auspicious in terms of the availability of seasonal flowers which bring the freshness of the new season and fragrance which heralds the rebirth of nature for lush abundance of greenery and colours. Spring is maybe the most exciting time of the year when all nature is born again for life and the renewal fills the atmosphere with the vibrant energy of rejuvenation.
It is important for people who are planning spring weddings to be aware of what flowers they can find in florist shops as well as what their characteristics such as longevity, aroma, etc. are. In this manner they can prepare the most appropriate floral arrangements for spring weddings, or order such arrangements with a florist.
Seasonal flowers for spring comprise columbines which are wildflowers and are great for mixed bouquets and for casual flower arrangements for spring weddings. Columbines have a dainty appearance and last for up to 10 days in vases; they are available in different colours. For large arrangements such as reception floral designs, forsythia flowers with their bright yellow clustered flowers are the solution. Because the forsythia flowers are formed before the leaves, their vibrant yellow colour stands out in vases or urns.

The freckles like spots inside the foxgloves flowers adds to the effect they deliver.
