May wedding florals: Inspiration for a beautiful Spring wedding

Are you dreaming of lush, romantic blooms for your May wedding but struggling to picture what will actually be in season? As a floral designer, I get it - imagining those vibrant spring arrangements with little flower knowledge or a reference point can leave you feeling a bit stuck, but I promise you are in for a treat. I absolutely adore what nature has to offer in May.

Let me show you two of my favorite pastime May weddings.

The florals I created for these two events were completely contrasting in aesthetic, yet both showcase the beauty and varieties that can be achieved for your spring Wedding.

This time of year can seem equal parts exciting and daunting when it comes to choosing the perfect wedding flowers, it might seem like the Season is just getting going but trust me, there is so much available.

Wether you are aiming for colourful wedding flowers or would prefer to keep the tone more neutral, there are plenty of options for you.
