The lush blooms of summer make for endless options for vibrant arrangements. This means the summer bride can have her pick of the many in-season flowers for her bouquet.
Sunflowers, yellow roses and daisies are all great choices for the summer bouquet. These sunny hues are undeniably fun and offer a uniquely summery vibe.
Snapdragon and hypericum are great for filler and offer lighter tones.
Pinks and purples
Hot pink Gerbera daisies are eye-catching and pair well with yellows. Pink roses are classic, while bright stargazer lilies also are a summery sight.
Deep plummy calla lilies make a statement, while cooler purple aster, flox, freesia and alstromeria also are appealing. Add punchy pinks to a mass of lavender blooms for a unique aesthetic.
Orange-hued blooms also seem to have been ripped from the landscape of summer. Gerbera daisies, oranges, carnations and snapdragons all can add a warm touch to a bouquet.
If you want your bouquet to play a less prominent role, use a more subtle palette. Mix pale pink and yellow roses, or pair yellow and white blooms for a light, airy feel.
Mix it Up
If your color scheme embraces a wide variety of vibrant colors, a host of summertime flowers fit the bill. Carry a rainbow of alstromeria blooms, Gerbera daisies, roses or day lilies. The sky is the limit when it comes to incorporating colorful blooms.
A white metal basket spilling over with weighty peonies. Bright daisies resting in crystal clear glass vases. Clumps of lavender in blue-tinted glass jars. Summer flowers are made for adding punches of color to centerpieces. To add height to the table, the reach of striking phalaenopsis orchids draw the eye upward.
For the ceremony
Add interest to the aisles with kissing balls of blooms, either hanging from each chair lining the aisle or a shepherd’s hook, or lying on the ground.
