From the bride and her dress to the music, decor, and guest list, the royal wedding between Meghan Markle and Prince Harry was full of firsts and delightful surprises. As expected, it was a grand event of poise and pageantry. But at the same time, the couple found ways to make their nuptials feel intimate, personal, and full of sentiment. Watching along with the rest of the world, we still sensed that Meghan and Harry had created a day for themselves, one that they will be able to look back on years from now knowing that they did it out of love and commitment to each other rather than to meet protocol and expectations. And as we learn new details, the idea that this was a royal wedding like never before becomes all the more true.

With it’s delicate character and lovely fragrance, it’s no wonder that the freesia flower is a favorite among our spring brides. This bell-shaped bloom grows in a variety of colors including red, yellow, orange, pink, purple, and white. Lovely and playful, freesias look wonderful on their own or can be used as an accent flower.

Originating in South Africa, the story behind the flowers’s name goes back to the 19th century when the botanist, Christian P. Ecklon, named the bloom after his colleague, Friedrich H.T. Freese, to honor their friendship. Since then, the freesia has been associated friendship, trust, and innocence. What a perfect flower to have close by on the day when you are about to marry your best friend! From bouquets and centerpieces to the wedding cake, here are pretty wedding decor ideas that incorporate freesias.

We love when our brides find ways to incorporate their passions into the wedding day celebration. Music is a very important part of Kate’s life. Her relationship with Chase deepened over their admiration for music. If their wedding were to be an authentic expression of their love for each other, music would have to be involved. This week, we talk with Kate about how combining floral decor with musical elements worked to create a wedding ceremony that exceeded all expectations.

After the ring is slipped on, one of the first things a bride-to-be thinks about is what she’s going to wear down the aisle. And when you have a specific vision of how it will look, finding the perfect dress can take some time and effort. Just ask Kate, our featured bride for May. “I was looking for a design with floral appliqué and lace. An open back was important as well. I had tried on so many dresses and none of them were what I hoped for. That is until I went to Spina Bride. It was like stepping into a wedding gown boutique set within a fairytale,” she remembers.
