For weddings in the spring months such as March, April, May or June, flower bulbs can make a nice gift for your guests! Your guests can take their bulbs home after the wedding and immediately plant the bulbs, and enjoy the blooms later in the year to remind them of your special day! For brides and grooms who want to use bulbs as favors at their spring wedding, the following bulbs work best: Oriental Lilies, Asiatic Lilies, Calla Lilies, Gladiolus, Oxalis, Crocosmia, Buttercups, and Peacock Orchids. Some bulbs such as Lilies, Calla Lilies and Gladiolus can be handed out as favors by giving each guest 1-3 bulbs. Smaller bulbs like Oxalis, Crocosmia, Buttercup and Peacock Orchids look best when each guest is given at least 3 bulbs.
A fun option if you aren’t sure that all of your guests will want a flower bulb, is to make a bulb buffet where guests can pick and choose which bulbs they would like and how many of each. If you are going to make a bulb buffet for your spring wedding, get some cute boxes or organza bags, and ask your guests to fill the box or bag up with their favorite flower bulbs as a way to remember your special day!
