Spring is here again! While we start packing our winter coats into the back of the closet and begin dusting off our playful dresses, we want to feel the freshness of the new season in every aspect of our lives. If you're planning your big day for spring, bright colors and sweet smells are likely on your mind.
Selecting the right bouquets and floral arrangements for your event space can be a tricky process; often, you'd like everything to coordinate well without "matching" too much, which can be made more difficult for springtime weddings. Brides- and grooms-to-be may believe that a ceremony during this season will mean that their perennial concept is set in stone; however, innovation can be found practically everywhere if you look for it.
These 12 lovely centerpieces from real weddings feature different blooms and other trimmings perfect for any spring reception – whether you prefer your colorful blossoms to tower over revelers' heads or you'd like a more simple cluster of flowers to accent your understated motif, there is a springtime centerpiece for every sense of style. View the inspiring bunches below to give you ideas for your own nuptials! We promise that each one will put an extra "spring" in your step.
