Summer weddings are a popular choice amongst brides; perhaps because of their versatility. Summer weddings can be dressed up or dressed down to fit any couple’s special day.
Determining your wedding style and look,whether it’s formal, semi-formal or somewhere in between, will also help determine your type of wedding flowers. Specific wedding flower choices will help you achieve your desired wedding look.
Claire from koyalwholesale.com blog recently gave a run down on “The Top Summer Wedding Flowers” and also gave a great plug for using silk wedding flowers. Her top 10 summer wedding flower picks were: Calla Lilies, Daisies, Hydrangeas, Iris, Poppies, Ranunculus, Roses, Sunflowers, Tulips and Water Lilies.
After running down her top picks Claire shares, “Depending on your setting, you’ll want to choose flowers that are either formal or semi-formal.” Once you have your wedding flowers narrowed down, “Consider using bulk silk flowers that can be reused as home décor and wedding favors. These flowers look just like the real thing and last for much longer than your wedding day. Mix and match different flowers with silk flowers to create a multidimensional flower arrangement that will save you time and money.”
Any of Claire’s picks are beautiful summer wedding flower choices. But where do you start? Narrow down your wedding flower choices by starting with the type of wedding you are looking for, as we talked about before. A more formal affair could be looking at the traditional, romantic rose, a modern, chic orchid or lily. Casual arrangements of wildflowers like sunflowers or hand-tied bouquets of hydrangeas or daisies will lend themselves to less formal weddings. As you start narrowing down your choices search those types of silk flowers to see different arrangement options and ideas to see what you like best and what will work to bring your special day to life.
