Even though the season will be wrapping up soon, there are still some summer brides and grooms getting ready to exchange vows. With the warm weather and the breaks from work and school, couples often see this time of the year as an extension of the typical spring “wedding season.” For those who enjoy the heat, the longer days, and the overall relaxed atmosphere of June, July, and August, hosting your nuptials in the summer is likely at the top of your priority list. One of the most important aspects of any marital celebration is the floral design of the day – and summer is no exception.
When organizing the flowers that will be featured in the décor of your ceremony and reception, you’ll want to select blooms with significance to you – either by type or hue. For a summer wedding, focusing on blossoms that thrive in the heat – such as dahlias, garden roses, calla lilies, orchids, etc. – along with those that display a complementary color scheme to your chosen motif, is pertinent. For the most intimately used arrangements of the day – your bouquet florals – you’ll want to pay extra close attention to the details you’re incorporating.
