If you are planning the perfect summer soiree, you need the right floral display to represent you as a couple. I have rounded up some of the most popular and seasonal summer wedding flowers featured on Whimsical Wonderland Weddings to help you decide on your floral displays.
Peonies are one of my favourite blooms, open and fluffy or closed and neat. They come in white and pink and are mainly in season late spring/early summer in the UK.
Stocks are great at adding height to floral arrangements and come in a variety of shades. I love them in hand tied natural bouquets.
Daisies are having a resurgence at the moment, on their own or mixed with other flowers they add a delicate pretty element to wedding bouquets.
Lavender is usually around in the later summer months and obviously adds a divine scent to your event, they can be dried and kept fairly easily too. Find your local lavender farm to pick swathes at great value before your wedding day.
Hydrangeas give lovely volume and a single head can create a gorgeous bouquet, or spilt them up to add to natural bottle arrangements for example.
Carnations are great value for money and are available throughout the year. There are also many shades and colours available making them a really versatile wedding flower.
Sweet peas are delicate and smell heavenly. Perfect for a summer wedding, or a fragrant aisle to walk down.
I love a spikey voluminous Dahlia, they look great in mixed arrangements or standing alone.
Chrysanthemum’s are perfect to bulk out your wedding bouquet, such as the green stem below.
I adore the bold colour of the Iris and the usual shape. Perfect for something a little different at a wedding.
Gerberas were huge in the 90s, but i think they will be back with a vengeance soon. Big bold heads, available in many colours. They can be used in a variety of different arrangements.
Succulents are fairly new on the wedding scene, but they sure do pack a punch. I love these unusual eco friendly blooms in earthy green tones.
Gypsophila will be here to stay for a little while, fantastic value for money, versatile, pretty and in neutral white you cannot go wrong with fluffy bouquets of them.
Roses are a classic, chic, stylish and timeless.
Ohh i really do love flowers. Have you decided on your summer wedding flowers? What are you having? XOXO Lou
