Having a summer wedding? Then there’s a great selection of summer wedding flowers for you to choose from whether your wedding is modern or traditional.
There’s a natural explosion of colourful blooms available; these include everything from tall flowering plants that are ideal for venue arrangements to delicate flowering annuals that add a soft touch to bridal bouquets, buttonholes and stylish table decorations. Wedding Flowers can have symbolic meaning, and thus should be coordinated by style, colour and symbolism.
The popular wedding flowers are all available at this time of year and will add a gorgeous scent to your wedding day.
Roses are out in abundance and are a popular choice for many brides. Nowadays there is no problem in getting roses year round from florists.
Lilies and calla lilies will be seen at many summer weddings. One of the most distinct varieties is calla lilies which are perfect wedding flowers for white themed weddings. Stargazer lilies can be used in venue arrangements as their large blooms and scent make them popular choices. Be sure that your florist removes the lily pollen in order to avoid it staining your beautiful white dress.
Gerberas are another colourful choice to brighten the atmosphere. These perfectly round wedding flowers are great for bridal bouquets, as well as for adding fun and interest to reception arrangements.
Many more brides are now interested in having tropical wedding flowers due to their bright colours, their modern, chic look and because they’re available year-round.
These striking flowers originate from Central and tropical South America, and are commonly known as Flamingo flowers. Anthuriums can work well in bouquets and should remain the star of the show with other flowers as secondary.
These have been a favourite with modern themed weddings and tear drop bridal bouquets. There are a number of different varieties including moth orchids (phalaenopsis) and cymbidium orchids. These delicate wedding flowers are well-suited to bouquets and also look good as buttonholes. Cymbidium orchids are robust and one of the most versatile flowers.
This plant gets its name from the crinkled, velvety flower head that resembles a rooster's comb. It's a great flower to add texture and bright colour to a bouquet and other arrangements. It is available in a variety of colours including red, yellow and pink.
Latest Floral Trends – Accessorising Flowers
The latest trend this season is accessorising your favourite blooms. Using accessories is a perfect way to make your wedding flowers unique and personal. You might think that the tiny details may not get seen but it's amazing what people notice and how much of a difference paying attention to the details can make.
Adding a touch of ‘bling’ to your bouquet and table arrangements is an elegant way to add a touch of sparkle. It's all about the size and quantity of the diamantes you use, balanced with the impact you want to achieve from your flower arrangements.
Butterflies are an extremely popular wedding theme and a perfect accessory to run throughout your wedding, and are very effective when added to the table centrepieces. You can decide if you want them to play a small role and only just be seen, or if you want to go for a much larger prominent feature.
