Perfect for spring, 'vineyard' style flowers are extremely romantic and highly fragrant, imagine a bouquets of lilacs in their own spring green foliage, or blue and lilac hyacinths with bear grass and pepper berries. Delicate lilac freesias will also provide the right color and scent, or choose a simple bouquet of white lilac, green foliage and trim with purple ribbon. Bridesmaids in lilac dresses with green sashes could complete the picture.

If you're planning a high summer wedding, the most stunning of this years color palettes is Midnight Sun; a rich mixture of sunshine and shadow in the form of yellow, gold and black.

Other excellent color choices include billy balls, yellow iris, or for the classic bride, yellow scented roses. Most florists roses have little scent, but you can still buy the 'old fashioned' kind, with their stunning natural perfume, from David Austen Roses.
