There really isn’t anything prettier than a spring wedding in the Smoky Mountains. The wildflowers are blooming everywhere, the weather is warming up, and wedding season is just around the corner!
To honor the first flowers of the year, we at HearthSide at the Preserve have put together a small wedding flower guide or many of the beautiful flowers found in the Smoky Mountains to help couples find out what their floral arrangements say about them.
Daisies are a great staple flower for any spring wedding in the Smoky Mountains. Their white petals give a subtle floral accent, and the bright yellow center adds just enough pop of color to still make a statement.
If spring had an official mascot, it would more than likely be the daffodil flower. Offering a yellow, white or mixed petal color, these flowers are well-known for canvassing the ground for just a few short weeks before the weather reaches summer temperatures. Daffodils symbolize respect, good fortune, and chivalry–everything you want in a marriage!
The official state flower for Tennessee, the Iris represents faith, wisdom and inspiration. The ideal way to symbolize you and your loved one’s faith in one another, as well as the future, this flower would make the perfect addition to any boutonniere or bridal bouquet.
One of the few wildflowers that are safe to eat, Tulips are always a fun way to spice up any floral arrangement. Not to mention, with the symbol of True Love behind it, these vivid colored flowers are also one of the most romantic choices.
Orchids are a statement flower. They look beautiful both in a bouquet or standing alone as a centerpiece. With the visual impact of these flowers, it’s no wonder that the meaning behind them is love and beauty.
What else do all these beautiful flowers have in common? Along with being a must-have for any spring wedding, these flowers are also commonly found in and around the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Although we do not suggest guests pick their own flowers from the park, it is something to keep in mind when thinking of ways to add little area touches to your Smoky Mountain wedding.
