If you have a summer wedding on the books, then the great news is that you won't have problems finding flowers in bloom. There are so many different flowers to choose from, regardless of what type of look you are going for. By choosing in-season blooms, you will be able to save money because it will be easier for your florist to get the flowers you want. Plus, they will be fresher. Here are some of the more popular flowers that are in season during the summer that you may want to consider for your wedding.
Gardenias are larger in size and have a strong, yet sweet scent. They are available in white and cream, which makes it the perfect flower if you are opting for a sophisticated, chic, or vintage theme. These flowers work well in the bouquet, as a centerpiece, and for boutonnieres. Keep in mind that these flowers are a bit pricier than others, so you may want to consider incorporating other less expensive flowers so that the gardenias don't completely take out your flower budget.
If you prefer a wildflower look, then you may want to consider freesias. These flowers have a bell-shaped bloom and offer a sweet fragrance. Although available in an assortment of colors like red, pink, orange, yellow, blue, and purple, their white blooms look magnificent with greenery pieces. Freesias are a more affordable option when you don't have a large flower budget for your wedding.
If you are looking for sophisticated flower that can add a statement without overpowering you with its scent, then look no further than the dahlia. These flowers are perfect for a late summer wedding. They come in a variety of sizes and have a unique texture. You can find dahlias to match almost any color scheme, as they are available in anything from white and soft pinks to various shades of oranges and dark burgundy. Dahlias work well in a rustic-themed wedding or a more sophisticated-style ceremony. These flowers are in-demand, though, and because of this, they are a bit more expensive.
Although carnations tend to get a bit of a bad reputation, they are a beautiful flower that will not break the bank. Carnations have a simplicity about them that can work with a traditional wedding where simple is key. These flowers can be used as fillers to dress up sophisticated bouquets, or they can be used in a stand-alone bouquet with some greenery for more of an old-fashioned look.
