March is such a tantalising month. With spring just around the corner, it can be such a beautiful time of year. It’s no surprise that more and more couples are choosing to have a March wedding.
If this is your wedding month and you’re planning your wedding flowers, then we’ve got all you need to know right here.
Keep it seasonal
Using seasonal wedding flowers on your big day is always a great idea. Not only are you avoiding imported blooms but you’ll also get the most for your money. But more importantly than that, spring wedding flowers are always so joyful after the dark days of winter. As wedding florist Sarah Diligent from Floribunda Rose explains, the colours available for your March wedding are so fabulous:
“Spring promises delicate pastel colours, glorious scent and deep jewel tones. Whilst you might not notice a huge change in flowers available in floristry shops as they’re imported all year around, by using locally grown flowers for your March wedding, you’ll see a real change every week.”
Exquisite flowers for your March wedding
Exactly why are locally grown blooms so perfect? Well, if you want to create something wonderful with your wedding flowers then you really have to stick to the seasons:
“Local growers grow the most beautiful flowers and foliage,” says Sarah. “They often have flowers which you’d never find at a market or in the shops so these blooms are really, really special.”
To make the most of everything that’s bursting into life in time for your March wedding, speak to your florist in advance. They’ll be able to advise you and liaise with their suppliers to check availability. You can also leave the exact selection of flower varieties to your florist. This gives them freedom to work with the best available flowers and buy at the best price. You can still agree the colour and design of bouquets and decorations in advance then look forward to a seasonal surprise.
