Spring is such a popular time for weddings because of the use of bright colors and beautiful blooms! Many of the most popular blooms are in season in the Spring, such as peonies, anemones, sweet peas, and orchids.
We spoke to some of our favorite Wedding Florists to share their favorite spring color palettes and the flowers they use to create them!
Something Bright and Something Blue
By Mabry Hastings at The Flowered Blue
We’ll call this Mabry’s Viral Color Palette because this design alone has gone viral for Mabry FIVE times! Mabry says, “It’s bright and fun and has something blue every bride looks for on their wedding day. It truly evokes happiness because the colors are so happy.”
Mabry used Blue Delphinium, Coral Tulips, Orange Dahlia, Chamomile, and Peach Zinnias for this design.
Mabry Hastings is the Founder and Lead Designer at The Flowered Blue. Mabry started working with florals at 16 with her best friend.

Strawberries and Peaches
By Leslie Fuentes at Monarch and Marigold Studio
Rinna & Gabriel Sunset Elopement on the beach coast of Cape Kiwanda.
Leslie says, “My most favorite color palette would consist of strawberry & peachy tones complimented by soft touches of lavender & white. It reminds me of a stunning sunset after long rainy days in April.”
“As someone who loves to design with quirky, unpopular & specialty flowers all year-round, I would say that Spring is the peak season for all of my favorite blooms. Some of my top favorites include spirea, blooming jasmine vines, hellebores & sweet peas. Some of these blooms you could oftentimes find in any other season, but their quality is not the same as it is in the Spring.”
Leslie’s focal flowers for this design consisted of Sola Garden Spray Roses, Juliet and Symbol Garden Roses, and Dahlias. She also used Foxgloves, Yarrow, Butterfly Ranunculus, and Sweet Pea; for some added texture, foliage, and filler, she used locally grown and seasonal greenery and branches from the Seattle flower grower market such as Smoke Bush Branches, Pieris, and Nandina.
“I always take into consideration making my designs look exactly the way they’d look in nature, so using these seasonal blooms truly showcases that. Once clustered together, it gives a whimsical, overgrown, whimsical garden look every time.”

Vibrant and Bold
By Caroline James Carrillo at Caroline James Floral
Caroline says, “I’m a big advocate for color in design - ALWAYS. While often pastels are associated with Spring when it comes to weddings and events, this bridal bouquet is one of my favorites due to the light pastel hues, + the bold and almost aggressive colors thrown into the mix as well - the yellow and red-orange poppies, and the purple scabiosa. Spring is the time to do it all! Color for all!”
For this Bouquet, Caroline used Local Winkelmann Tulips, Ranunculus, and Butterfly Ranunculus, and Yellow Van Dyke Tulips, Local Grassdale Icelandic Poppies, Lavender Sweet Pea, and Dark Purple Scabiosa.
Caroline is the hands and eyes behind Caroline James Floral. She is passionate about thoughtfully curated designs and making beautiful things for the humans around her to enjoy in all seasons of life.
By Catherine Shannon at Catherine Rose Floral
Catherine says, “I love a mix of pastels and a few brighter pops for Spring. Anything that reminds me of a sunset or a bowl of sherbert, I think, is really dreamy!”
Catherine used Peonies, Ranunculus, Roses, Spray Roses, Carnations, Snapdragons, and mixed foliage.
Catherine always had an interest in design, but it wasn’t until she attended the Floral Design Institute in Portland, Oregon, that she discovered working in wedding and event florals was her dream job. She found that floral design offered the perfect balance of art, science, and business that she thrives in! Because of this, every piece that Catherine designs is genuinely made with love and heart.
