For many couples, flowers are one of the most important aspects of the wedding, as well as one of the most expensive. Incorporating seasonal flowers into your bouquets and centerpieces can let you have the beautiful and memorable summer wedding that you’re dreaming of without breaking the bank.
Why You Should Include Seasonal Flowers in Your Decorations
When flowers are in season, they’re readily available, easy to find, and affordable. Including flowers that are in season can help you stretch your budget further.
You can also use seasonal flowers to create a cohesive theme for your wedding. If you’re getting married at the beach or at another outdoor venue during the summer, including seasonal flowers in your bouquets and centerpieces can tie everything together.
This doesn’t mean that your bouquets and centerpieces should consist entirely of seasonal flowers. Some species are readily available and affordable throughout the year. You can use seasonal flowers as focal points and use other flowers as fillers to round out your bouquets and centerpieces.
Flowers You Can Include in Your Summer Wedding Bouquets and Centerpieces
When selecting flowers for your summer wedding, you’ll have a wide array of options. Irises, lilies, dahlias, and magnolias look exquisite when paired with other flowers in bouquets and centerpieces. If you want to go for something a little less traditional, you can use sunflowers in your floral arrangements.
How to Choose the Right Flowers for Your Summer Wedding
If you aren’t sure what types of blooms to include in your bouquets and centerpieces, get in touch with a local florist to find out which flowers will be in season around the time of your wedding. Discuss the colors you like, the theme for your wedding, and the type of ambience you want to create. A florist can advise you on which seasonal flowers to select and which other types of flowers you can use to complement them.
