While Spring is almost gone, we couldn’t let the season end without recapping some of our very favorite Spring blooms! We asked Kimm of The Velvet Garden to pull some of her most requested flowers for spring weddings and she decided on these six: Lavender Lilac, Pink Fringe Tulip, Coral Ranunculus, Lavender Clematis, and Deep Purple Sweet Pea. All are soft and romantic, the perfect pastel colors for a spring soiree. Before pulling them altogether for a drop-dead gorgeous bridal bouquet, she gave us the run down on each flower. Some come in multiple colors, others grow on vines, and one is only available for a single month! Read on to get some little known facts from a floral expert on your favorite blooms!
