A springtime wedding lends itself perfectly to the sweetest and simplest bouquets. Nothing stiff or formal. Not lavish or over the top. Just pure floral charm. And because these arrangements are so simple, they can be easily made by crafty brides or by family members. In this post, we help to show you how—with photo inspiration that you could readily replicate, as well as actual tutorials from great DIY blogs.
Charming Spring Bouquets You Can Make Yourself
Key to the appeal of these arrangements are:
- the freshest blooms in season—with dainty baby’s breath, cheery daisies, and sweet peas being favorite choices
- a casual bundling of stems as though gathered from a spring meadow
- a hand-tied style finished with a wrap of burlap, twine, colored ribbon or lace.

2 – We love the country charm of white daisies and muscari in this bridesmaid’s bouquet, created by Wild About Flowers.
4 – Such a sunny sight for spring! An all-daffodil bouquet in shades from golden yellow to creamy white, with a velvet ribbon wrap (a step-by-step guide thanks to Crafted Spaces).
