Foxgloves may just be available for your day if you are having a May wedding. These tall stems with bell-shaped flowers evoke a fairy feel thanks to tales of their markings being fairy hand-prints.

Alliums are part of the onion family, but don’t let that put you off. In fact, they are one of my favourite spring bulbs to grow! So easy to plant as well as care for, they grow super tall and grow back year after year.

If you are looking for wow-factor large purple wedding flowers to grow yourself, these could be perfect.
