In Honor of Wildflower Week, Top Dallas Wedding Florists Pick Their Favorite Wildflowers

Happy first week of May! You know it’s spring when blue blooms sweep across the plains like an ocean wave. Bluebonnets will always hold a special place in the hearts of Texas natives (ever since we learned about, and started taking an unnatural amount of pride in them, in 4th grade). But Lady Bird Johnson didn’t set up a wildflower center in her name exclusively for the tiny blue-podded stems. This week is also wildflower week, so we’re taking the opportunity to appreciate the incredible flora that adorn our landscape, beyond the blue. We asked local wedding florists their favorite wildflowers and why. Prepare to fall in love. As the former First Lady and East Texan native said, “My heart found its home long ago in the beauty, mystery, order and disorder of the flowering earth.”

“We love working with thistle in bouquets because it gives a great added texture to the bouquet and a subtle blue tone for our brides in that color palette.”

—Madison Spears of Bella Flora of Dallas

“We love using wildflowers in our bouquets! From thistle and solidago reminiscent of East Texas Plains to fragrant chamomile with its delicate daisy-like blooms, wildflowers are a great way to add personality to bouquets.”

—Sarah Amond of Dr Delphinium Designs & Events

“Our favorite wildflower is the sunflower. I like them because they are so versatile in that you can make them look chic and high-end as well as rustic and casual.”

—Taylor Pritchett of Lilium Floral

“We love to use wild foliage to accent our floral arrangements! Our favorite is white spioria, which is just now coming back into season. It is a kind of greenery with blooming white buds on the end. We love how it is elegant and dreamy—plus, it looks amazing paired with florals for a more organic-styled weddings!”

—Taylor Davis of Something Pretty Floral
