Eternally loved for timelessness, tulips are one of our favorite flowers for wedding bouquets. The natural elegance a tulip exudes, whether pastel, vibrant, or crisp white, lends itself to any wedding style. “When done right, you’ll never look back on a bouquet featuring beautiful delicate tulips and regret that decision,” says Kelly Lenárd of Intertwine.
Intertwine by Kelly Lenárd is a destination floral design studio led by florist, designer, and creative director Kelly Lenárd , who travels worldwide for weddings big and small.
“Their graceful stems and flowing petals can add dimension, movement, whimsy, elegance, drama, and old-world charm to bouquets,” shares Lenárd. From standard tulips like the Big Smile and Menton varieties to exciting Parrot Tulips, you can find them in just about any color. “Many varieties even have a painterly quality to their petals, making them blend easily with a wide array of colors.”
Tulips are extremely versatile, with most varieties available for purchase year-round, while the more unique varieties will only be available in the spring. “Their sleek form is also a lovely juxtaposition to more intricately petaled flowers and fillers,” says Lenárd.
Each variety differs in price; work with your florist to determine what’s appropriate for your budget to get the most bang for your buck.

“While they certainly work well with elegant and romantic weddings, with so many colors and varieties to choose from, they could easily enhance modern, artistic, dramatic, moody, minimal, and eccentric wedding styles,” says Lenárd. Embrace Muted Tones
Neutral pastels never go out of style. Keep things muted but still striking with a subtle color palette comprised of creams, grays, and light pinks, perfect for a spring wedding with a bit of a romantic flair.

A great option for a traditional wedding is a round bouquet. Opt for tulips that have not fully opened in order to create a more classic, symmetric shape. Make It Monochromatic
While white is an easy choice for an all-tulip bouquet, change things up with a monochromatic masterpiece in an unexpected shade of pink. Keep things small in size, with a […]
