The days are getting longer and I couldn’t be any more excited that winter is officially behind us. One of the concerns my husband and I had with moving to the Seattle, Washington area was the lack of sun during the non-summer months. We weren’t sure how we would handle living without Colorado’s bluebird skies, of which there are many. Denver gets almost 300 days of sun compared to Seattle’s 152 days.
While I am excited for the arrival of summer, which is supposed to be quite spectacular in Seattle, I am enjoying experiencing spring in the Pacific Northwest. There has been rain, but there have also been days with sunshine (some with quite a bit of sunshine!). You can feel a new energy in the atmosphere as the earth is waking up and coming alive. The days feel cleansing and invigorating. What I have enjoyed the most here in Washington, however, are the blossoming trees. They are EVERYWHERE! Trees with pink blossoms, trees with white blossoms, and even trees with yellow blossoms. Isn’t Mother Nature amazing?
With the first official day of spring just last week, I want to take a look at some beautiful bouquets for springtime weddings. Floral designs that are soft, delicate, and fresh embody a lovely springtime feel. And you can take advantage of having lilac, blossoming branches, or hyacinth in your arrangements.
Are you thinking about having a spring wedding in the Seattle area in 2020 or beyond? What spring flowers do you envision for your event?
Spring is such a lovely time to get married, despite the precariousness of the weather. If it rains in Seattle (or perhaps snows in Colorado!) on your wedding day, just remember that precipitation is a sign of good luck.
