Spring is one of the best times of year to get married for plenty of reasons, one of the top reasons being the flowers!

With so much choice it can be hard to find your favourite, so we’ve rounded up the top trending flowers in 2018 for you to fill your wedding with.


Theses flowers are a romantic wedding classic. Roses have been a symbol of love forever and this symbol is often carried over to weddings. Roses come in a huge range of colours, to the traditional reds, to whites and yellows.


These flowers are native to Asia, Europe and North America. There are around 33 known species of peonies, each as beautiful as the next. They bloom in late Spring and early Summer so will be perfect for both Spring and Summer weddings. Like the rose they come in many colours, the light pink being particularly popular for weddings.


The petals of ranunculus are often really shiny. Many species are found near water so the name is latin for ‘little frog’. There are usually five petals on these flowers but it can range anywhere from three to seven.

Sweet Pea

The sweet pea is a climbing plant that can grow up to 2 metres tall given the correct support. In the wild these plants are various shades of purple but can be grown in shades of blue, pink, purple, and white among others. This is a personal favourite in the Marry Me Ireland office.
