Summer weddings are a great time to use natural décor for your wedding, and what better natural décor then flowers? Flowers for a summer wedding are a great way to add some color, beauty, and visual impact to the wedding or reception. The following is a look at the best flowers for a summer wedding:
Some of the best flowers for summer weddings are the ones that come in the colors that you love. For example, if you love pink, you could carnations, bachelor buttons, orchids, gladiolas, hydrangeas, dahlia and bleeding hearts. So, first thing first, decide what color of flowers you want, as this will help you determine the best summer flowers for your wedding.
Next, consider your budget. Some flowers are inherently more expensive than others, either because they require complicated arrangements, are rare, exotic, harder to keep alive, so need to be delivered day of, only, or a number of other reasons that hike up the price. The best flowers for a summer wedding are the ones you can afford. Gerbera daisies are a great choice for a popular, beautiful, sturdy, and affordable flower. They can come in bright colors, are easy to arrange, and look great as part of a mix of flowers, or on their own. They are the perfect choice for the person who doesn’t want to pay someone else to arrange their flowers. They are long lasting, which makes them the perfect flower for a summer wedding with multiple locations, or that spans several days.
Third, consider your preferences, and the various options for summer wedding flowers:
Calla lilies are the perfect summer wedding for someone who wants more exotic flowers, or the ideal white wedding. You can get other wedding as well such as stargazers, or more. Other exotic flowers that make great wedding flowers in the summer, especially if you are having a destination wedding include the bird of paradise, hibiscus, or orchids.
Freesia is a great summer wedding flower, as a filler for arrangements or bouquets. In addition, they are great for the outdoor summer wedding because they do well in hotter outdoor weather. This means your bouquets won’t be wilted and looking limp at the ceremony.
Sunflowers are the embodiment of summer, and make a great, inexpensive, and high impact vision flower for your wedding.
Peonies are also a great summer wedding flower, as they are huge, and come in great colors for a wedding. They give a soft, lush, whimsical feeling to the wedding.
Jasmine is yet another perfect flower for a wedding day. They are small, white, and full of scent. They are wonderfully heady, which gives you a nice scent to tie into the feeling and emotion of such an important day in your life. They work well for a white wedding, or compliment a number of other flower choices in high colors.
