During the Victorian era flowers were used to send messages and express feelings to someone. Tussie – mussies also known as a word posy was a small bunch of herbs and flowers with symbolic meanings.

When thinking about spring flowers for your spring wedding, you might like to use  flower colour combinations. Here are some ideas for you I have put together for you.

Pink – pink peonies, pink spray roses and a touch of cream sweet peas  -  pink ranunculus, ivory roses and pieris

Purple  - lavender and mauve freesias  -  lavender coloured roses, white peonies and rosemary  -  mauve freesias, green roses and white daisies

Yellow – yellow tulips, yellow freesias and white daisies  -  yellow freesias, ivory ranunculus and rosemary

Green and White – lily of the valley amongst its own leaves

For pioneers I  imagine that the bride would have carried a natural looking bouquet freshly picked from the garden using a combination of flowers and herbs such as roses, daisies, freesias, blue bells, snow drops, daffodils, sweet peas, ranunculus, lavender, pieris, rosemary and thyme.

Little flower girls would have worn sprigs in their hair and carried posies. Tables would have been adorned with simple jars filled with these beautiful scented flowers picked from their very own gardens.

If you are having a country, rustic style wedding, then a pioneer pretty dress would be perfect for your flower girls to wear on such a special occasion. With a sprig or wreath of spring flowers on her head the look would be picture perfect.
