Tulips are not only a beautiful spring flower, but they're also super versatile. The classic blooms are available in hundreds of unique varieties and colors (fringed, variegated, frilly) - way beyond the basic types you see at your local grocery store. Best of all, they're in season right now, so if you're planning a spring wedding, ask your florist to find a way to include the pretty blooms into your wedding arrangements.
To help get you inspired, we've put together a collection of our favorite bridal bouquets featuring picture-perfect tulips for every kind of bride.

Bright-Pink Bouquet: These giant parrot tulips look so whimsical when their petals are wide open (instead of tightly closed, as we so often see with the bloom). This Kat Flower-designed bouquet also includes roses, ranunculus, tweedia, veronicas, bunny tail, and jasmine.

Peach Tulip Bouquet: Variegated parrot tulips, deep-toned amaryllises, and peach-colored Juliet garden roses make a stunning bouquet when combined together in this bouquet by MMD Events. The gold cord wrapped around the handle is a chic way to add a touch of formality.
