Summer is the most favorite wedding season, not only due to the warm and pleasant climate, but also due to the availability of resources. There are ample vegetables and flowers in summer, which find their use in various wedding decorations. The weddings can take place in beautiful yards or on beaches, with the brides wearing strapless or short dresses.
No wonder, most brides pick summer for their weddings. Wedding decorations, which are incomplete without wedding flowers also look particularly good in summer due to the availability of flowers in all hues. However, the brides may find it particularly difficult to pick up flowers for their wedding bouquets, since all the flowers look equally stunning. Given below are some ideas for summer wedding bouquets.
Summer Wedding Bouquet Ideas
Since summer is a busy time for florists, you will have to choose the flowers and talk with your florist well in advance. One great thing about summer weddings is that you don’t have to ponder over the color of the flowers for wedding bouquets. You can go for a traditional white bouquet, or you may choose to play with colors by going for an exotic flower bouquet. Summer wedding flower bouquets can be made in any of the combinations given below.
Traditional White Bouquets
White denotes purity, and virginity and is often preferred for wedding bouquets as it complements the pristine white wedding dress of the bride. A bouquet made out of white roses and calla lilies exudes charm and elegance. A bunch of baby’s breath can render it a divine touch. For added grace, use a handful of gardenias for your bouquet. Do not forget to tie the bunch with a white satin ribbon or tulle for a more formal look.
Romantic Pink Bouquets
A wedding is the ultimate symbol of love and romance, and there is no better way than to fete it with a bunch of pink roses. Since, roses are available year-round, finding pink roses shouldn’t be a problem. Pink roses can be combined with white lilies to create a soft, subdued effect.
Classic Red Bouquets
Red roses are the most sought-after flowers in weddings. The red rose stands for love and passion, the two fundamental factors upon which marriage is based. If you want to go for Valentine’s theme, go for a combination of red and white roses. Alternatively, you may also combine red roses with bright flowers such as gerbera, gladiolus, etc.
Exotic Wedding Bouquets
During summer, you easily get exotic flowers like orchids and gerbera which are found in vibrant colors like purple, red, orange, and yellow. Gerbera is a perfectly round flower that is often used for bridal bouquets. Orchids look stunningly pretty with their twisted petals and lovely shades. Chrysanthemums and hibiscus are other brightly colored exotic flowers to watch out for during summer. Daisy, and sunflowers are some vibrant flowers that can add color to your summer wedding.
Unique Combinations for Wedding Bouquets
You may go for flowers of a single variety or you may choose to go for a combination of several local and exotic varieties. Roses and calla lilies look great in each other’s presence. The same goes for roses and orchids. If you want to include a bit of everything in the summer wedding bouquets, go for the combination of pink and white roses, orchids, yellow carnations, and gerbera in shades of white, red, and orange with some salal leaves. Another unique combination includes a bunch of dahlias, and hydrangeas with a handful of berries.
Summer weddings are colorful, vibrant, and delightful experiences. Summer wedding bouquets and other decorations add a lot to this colorful extravaganza.
