春天是,毫无疑问,the season for flowers. We can make a strong case for a summertime wedding or tying the knot in the fall, but ultimately, if you have your hopes set on a wedding day that’s full of florals, beginning to end, we’d be remiss if we didn’t tell you:AprilandMayare the months to consider in order to show off nature’s natural bounty.

When it comes to your reception, centerpieces are the star, which gives you all the more reason to throw the doors wide open to the endless possibilities that await because ofwhat’s blooming during the spring season. “Spring is probably the best for so many wedding styles as so many flowers are in season,” says wedding planner Erica Estrada.

Meet the Expert

Consider this lineup: peonies, tulips, foxglove, heuchera, ranunculus. All are capable of withstanding the pressure of being the “it” flower for a variety of wedding design styles. With so many varieties in bloom, you can start with a color palette and work your way up from there. Estrada encourages couples who’d prefer tohost their wedding outsideto consider spring as their season of choice: “It’s generally not too warm temperature-wise, which is particularly important for the more delicate flowers.”

Channel a kind of soft, romantic design with large statement centerpieces, create a floral runner that stretches on and on for a head table covered in hydrangea, and embrace peony-pink arrangements full of pastel blooms with leafy petals for unique texture and perspective. “I love when clients use flowering branches, such as spirea, dogwood, and forsythia in their wedding day florals,” says Estrada.

Ahead, 20 wedding centerpieces that will give you major spring fever.

Sometimes you can do more with less. We love the idea ofsimple, minimalistic, mono-floral arrangements; with just a handful of stems, you can create a look that alludes to having just cut them from the field.

Poppies are great for this look, as their wavy petals and long stems can create a unique shape for the centerpiece without much extra styling.
