What Wedding Flowers Are in Season in March? (Here Are 9 Excellent Ideas)

With Mother Nature in full bloom, March is one of the loveliest months to tie the knot. So, let’s take a look at what wedding flowers are in season in March?

Some of the most eye-catching seasonal blooms in March include anemones, daffodils, hyacinths, daisies, alliums, ranunculus, and several others!

To help you find the perfect flowers for your March wedding, we’ve listed some of the best blooms for wedding bouquets, arrangements, accessories, and more.

Let’s dive right in!

1.  Anemones

A long-time favorite of florists and brides, anemones bloom abundantly throughout March and most of the spring. 

If you want to make a statement at your wedding, anemones have your back. Although they don’t carry the sweet scent of spring-like some of the other blooms on this list, their showy looks more than makeup for it.

Anemone bouquets are for the bold and daring. With their delicately full petals and black center, they’re the best choice for modern weddings.

These flowers look great on their own, but they really shine when mixed with other March flowers such as sweet peas, garden roses, ranunculus, and black dahlias.

Anemones represent deep love, protection against ill wishes and disease, and excitement, making them a wonderful choice for weddings!

2.  Daffodils

Daffodils are the quintessential symbol of rebirth, new beginnings, and good fortune.

They’re esteemed for their ability to bring forth positivity and prosperity, so it comes as no surprise that they’re the official symbol of the Chinese New Year.

Plus, they’re the official 10th wedding anniversary flower!

In the US and most parts of the world, daffodils bloom in late winter to early spring—just in time for March weddings.

Daffodils come alive in massive blooms when arranged in a glorious bouquet. They’re vibrant and eye-catching all by themselves, but if you want to wow your guests, combine them with tulips, hyacinths, crocuses, and other spring-blooming perennials like Bleeding Hearts and poppies.

3.  Hyacinths

Like other flowers on this list, hyacinths bloom between early to mid-spring.

With cheerful spring colors of white, rose, apricot, pink, lavender, and cobalt blue, these flowers fit almost every theme under the sun.

As the flower of the sun god Apollo, hyacinths symbolize peace, beauty, and commitment, as well as power and pride. In Christian churches, they represent happiness and love.

Hyacinths work best as table arrangements and centerpieces. For bouquets, they go particularly well with daffodils, tulips, viburnums, and calla lilies, plus eucalyptus and Ruscus for greenery.

4.  Daisies

If you’re going for a cottage or a spring-themed wedding, daisies are the way to go.

Due to their bright and cheerful nature, these flowers symbolize purity and innocence. They also represent new beginnings and rebirth, as well as gentle admiration and long-lasting trust. Red daisies, in particular, represent romantic love.

Snowy-white daisies with a yellow center are the most common color used in weddings. They look wonderful in hand-tied bridal bouquets, especially if the bride has a touch of yellow on her dress.

You’re not limited to just white daisies, however; they also come in yellow, blue, pink, purple, and orange. If you go for colored daisies, we recommend mixing them with other seasonal blooms, particularly anemones and ranunculus.

5.  Alliums

Alliums represent everything you’d want in life with your partner: unity, prosperity, good fortune, and patience.

These globe-shaped flowers come in varying shades of purple, burgundy, blue, and pink. They’re also available in white variations, but they’re not as popular as the colored varieties.

Alliums are a great way to add texture and color to your arrangements. They shine brightest when paired with other flowers like tulips, scabiosa, and carnations. If you’re going for a garden-themed wedding, pair them with peony roses, Limoniums, and larkspurs. 

6.  Ranunculus

Known to symbolize charm and enthusiasm, ranunculi are the perfect addition to a March wedding.

Blooming between January till May, these delicate flowers stand out on their own with their rose-like blossoms and stunning colors. Frankly, they’re almost too perfect to be real!

If you’re one to mix and match, don’t worry; ranunculi are complementary enough to pair with bold blooms like garden roses or peonies.

These flowers come in multiple types, with the Ranunculus ‘Hanoi’ and the Ranunculus ‘Bloomingdale’ being the most popular among brides. Their multi-layered blooms and elegance make them a global favorite.

Ranunculi are available in a multitude of colors, ranging from white to orange, purple, red, yellow, and pink.

7.  Sweet Peas

Blissful pleasure and good wishes: that’s what sweet peas represent—perfectly on par for weddings! 

These March blooms not only look amazing but smell as sweet as their name suggests. They have an intense, rich perfume that smells much like a cross between hyacinth and orange blossom, with just a tiny bit of rose.

Sweet peas come in a variety of colors, from coral pink to royal purple to just about any shade in between. They come in multiple types, too; in fact, the genus consists of more than 150 species!

Sweet peas look stunning on their own, but they also look great when mixed with other springtime blossoms. Since they’re so versatile, they can be used in centerpieces, accessories, or even as cake decor.

8.  Freesias

If you have yet to experience freesias in full spring bloom, you’re in for a real treat! 

Available in white, pink, purple, and yellow, these magnificent flowers produce foliage in the early winter months and bloom from late winter to early spring.

Like gladioli, these funnel-shaped flowers grow from a central stalk and are covered with sword-shaped leaves. It’s for this reason that they’re a florist favorite for centerpieces and bouquets.

In Victorian times, freesias were given as a sign of trust. The meaning hasn’t changed much in today’s time; they still represent trust, but they also symbolize confidence, innocence, and thoughtfulness.

Freesias shine especially bright when displayed alongside other spring blooms, like tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths.

9.  Tulips

Timeless, elegant, and charming, tulips are an all-time favorite in March weddings. They suit most wedding themes, from traditional to modern, and go well with almost every March flower on this list.

Tulips are available in almost every color of the rainbow. Some varieties even have multiple colors in a single bloom. You’ll also find them in dark shades such as black, purple, and maroon, which fits royal-themed weddings.

Each color has its own significant meaning; red tulips, for example, symbolize true love. White tulips symbolize purity, respect, and honor. Yellow tulips stand for cheerfulness and hope. 

In all of these meanings, tulips represent one major thing: perfect love. It’s no wonder why they’re often used at weddings!
