Wedding flower options during the summer are at full bloom. Many experts consider summer to be the best season in terms of the quality and diversity of available flowers. Brides and grooms have literally acres of wedding fields at their fingertips. Having this array of options is good, but it can also be overwhelming.
Your choice of wedding blooms is dependent on your overall wedding theme. A professional florist can easily advise you what flower species will enhance the mood of your celebration, but it’s really not rocket science.
If you’re having an outdoor ceremony – the sky is clear so why not bring the celebration outside – and you want to evoke the fun ambience of the season, color is important. Multi-hued sunflowers, snapdragons, hydrangeas, and stocks that are almost carelessly bunched together will lend a country feel to any wedding. You can also add to the rustic feel of your wedding floral arrangement by using aromatic herbs and summer berries as bouquet fillers.
For a more romantic feel, you may opt for shades of purple, burgundy, cabernet, and magenta. Rather than putting them in a bunch, you can ask your florist to arrange them in a cascading manner to have that soft look and feel.
Roses are also associated with summer. If you want to deviate from the ubiquitous red and white, why not try out peach-colored roses. There’s something about peach roses’ dainty, almost shy blush that imbibes the feeling of romance and warmth simultaneously.
For grooms and brides who are off to a tropical beach wedding, Martha Stewart recommends checking out tropical wedding flowers such as zinnias, dahlias and hibiscus.
