Fancy Fruits

Traditional arrangements are instantly elevated upon adding fruit and berries to the mix, especially equally seasonal ones. Consider what fruit (or even vegetables) could do for your colour palette when they're added to your colour assortment. This palette of lilac, lavender, violet and greenery got a boost of buttermilk, tan, putty, ivory, sage and indigo thanks to the addition of unripe pomegranates and concord grapes.

Vibrant-Toned Blooms

Spring is the time to go bold and bright is pastels aren't your thing. Think colourful collections of stems combining pink, coral, orange, ivory, and leafy greens—or choose another palette that feels more evocative of your personality, like a spectrum of cooler toned blues paired with oranges, yellows, and lavenders.

Dark Romance

Don't let the seasons indicate which colours you can or can't play with. Rich hues like oxblood paired with ivory, nudes, gold, and an unexpected hit of turquoise seem to seamlessly transition between seasons, and feel adventurous for an affair in warmer weather.

Orchids Only

Sarah Falugo

When Christy Baird wed at the The Frederick Loewe Estate in Palm Springs, she opted for a simple, modern clutch of spring-available orchids to carry down the aisle—and it was super chic. This bloom comes in so many shapes, sizes, and specimens. We suggest you use them all for depth, dimension, and a look that's more dynamic.

Yellow Buds

Jardin Dubois

Group yellow, ochre, and butter-coloured blooms with lemon leaf, and other greenery for a decadent decor option that pairs well with natural, all-white porcelain, or chinoiserie tabletop.

Lush Lavender

Don't shy away from the most polarizing shade in the rainbow. Lighter shades of lilac and lavender made waves on last spring's runways—and there's no reason you shouldn't embrace the it-shade for your wedding day, be it in a monochromatic way, or as a pop of colour in your palette.

Citrus Centrepieces

Nathan Underwood

Adding in citrus fruit any time of year can add just the right amount of texture and colour to an already beautiful bouquet or centrepiece, but when paired with pinks, corals, and light yellows, it feels apropos for warmer weather.

Femme Florals

Shawn Connell

Elegant shades of blue and ivory blooms mixed with dark green leafy greens—inspired by the floral motifs of the fabric chair backs—made this Italian reception in Capri feel understated, yet elevated.

Dried Flowers

Cibelle Levi

When BAZAAR Bride and celebrity hair stylist, Justine Marjan, wed in an elopement in Santa Barbara, she requested a clutch of dried stems. Paired with her tawny bridal suit by Michael Costello and a wide-brimmed hat, it was a modern take on '70s style, and undeniably chic.

Blush et Noir

Burnished blushes and warm ivory blooms make a cheeky yet feminine statement when accented with hits of black, moody-centred anemones, and mod-printed table decor.

Cascading Vines

Opt for a handful of beautiful blooms and work with your wedding florist to create a cascading effect with overflowing vines and stems. This look, just on time for the release of the latest Little Women film is an update on a bohemian look, and equal parts ethereal and effortless.

 All The Warm Tones

Melissa Marshall

Muted colours in blush, peach, and orange pack a powerful punch when paired with natural greens and organic details, like this reception decor for Devon Windsor and Johnny Barbara's St. Barth's wedding, planned by Mindy Weiss and designed by the couple, in collaboration with their florist.

Minimal Mix

Pair lengthy waxflower vines with peonies and other stand alone stems for a springtime mix that is minimal and unique. Gestural branches pack a punch when it comes to scale and shape, without the flowers feeling too full, lush, or over the top.

Capri Cool

Ricardo Rivera

Bright punches of colour transport your guests to a place as stylish as the Amalfi Coast, the French Riviera, and beyond. Rather than a subtle pastel or an array of neutrals, pack a punch with tones that are quirky, vibrant, and eclectic.

Pretty In Peach

From orchids to sweet peas, a glamorous arrangement of peach-coloured blooms feels fresh, feminine, and undeniably classic for a springtime wedding.

Moody Mauves

This moody centrepiece full of chocolate cosmos and purple wax flowers proves that you don't have to have a pastel colour palette just because it's spring.

Blush Redux

Ricardo Rivera

To avoid styling your bridal party, decor, and more in basic blush, reinvent the standard shade with organic elements, greenery, and natural blues for a palette that suits both the romantic and the globe-trotting bohemienne.

Florals by Putnam & Putnam

Ruby Reds

Sarah Rhyanen

Red isn't just for the holidays. This centrepiece filled with a riot of spring flowers in deeper hues, including daffodils, parrot tulips and blossoming branches, is rich and stately for any springtime affair.
