We here at United with Love are in a fantastic mood since Spring has officially sprung, the days are getting longer, and the flowers are beginning to bloom outside! Everywhere we look there seem to be vibrant colors and fragrant florals, not to mention some pretty great cherry blossoms! All of these things have inspired us to do a round-up of sorts of the best spring flowers to include in the décor and design of your DC area wedding! We teamed up with the fabulous Shelly Bagdasian of B Floral Event Design, one of our absolute favorite UWL wedding vendors! Also, be on the lookout this Saturday for a photo gallery complete with some of the best flowers that spring has to offer!

Peony: This is one of the most popular flowers for bridal bouquets and centerpieces, and honestly we just love to have them around the house as well! We also think they look darling on the tops of cakes. These full, soft, luxurious flowers comes in a range of pinks, white, coral and red.

Ranunculus: A very round flower, these tend to be on the smaller side with a great range of color. There are two types of ranunculus; the standard variety that is about the size of a sweetheart rose and the Cloni variety, which is much larger and opens to almost garden rose size. Colors come in white, peach, blush pink, orange, yellow, pink, plum, red. These hardy flowers are perfect for bouquets, centerpieces, and make a great boutonniere.

Hellebores: These flowers can be great accent and details that are often used in looser, garden style arrangements. They are resilient and one of the first to arrive on the scene in very early spring. The color palette for these beauties is so unique and has an antique quality to the coloration.

Anemone: With their rich colors and contrasting dark center, anemones are great for those looking to include a striking color variety to their day. You can find these flowers in the traditional white as well as bright red, pink, magenta, and purple. Another early spring flower that is great for bouquets and centerpieces.

Flowering Branches: A flower option that is most unique to early spring would be flowering branches. These are fantastic for large dramatic show stopping arrangements. Local options include the white and pink cherry blossom, perfect for a DC spring wedding. The white or pink dogwood is an underutilized flowering branch that is also gorgeous, or include bright yellow forsythia for a real burst of color!
