Ten Florals for your Summer Wedding
Summer is right around the corner and that means you may be meeting with your florists to finalize your order details! I sat down with The Flower Cupboard and together we came up with our top ten faves to use in summer weddings! What is even better is you can use any combination of the following in your wedding florals!
1. Let’s start with my all time favorite! The Ranunculus- this delicate flower almost looks to perfect to be real! But, I might be biased. The bloom is layers upon layers of tissue thin petals that make it perfect for your elegant summer wedding. They come in a few different colors including white, blush, yellow, deep pinks and reds and oranges.
2. We will tell you the Flower Cupboards favorite next, the Anenome - yes, I feel like Nemo saying this too. This crisp, round flower is known in its white coloring with a striking dark center, but can also be found in blue, and pinks.
3. Need your something blue? Delphinium is your answer! Not only does it give you a beautiful blue hue to your flowers, but it also give you a unique shape! These are really excellent for unstructured bouquets.
4. Lisianthus is our next floral. Sometime these are actually mistaken for spray roses because of their bell shape bloom and swirled petals. This is a small white bloom which pairs perfectly with the above and are great for boutonnieres!
5. Dahlias are another favorite of the Flower Cupboard because of the uniqueness and depth they can bring to your floral pieces! These come in a variety of bold colors and their petals look like little cones.
6. Another great flower to add texture and depth to your bouquet or centerpiece is the Peony. This bloom is bright and lush and can add a lot of character to your decor.
7. Getting into greenery and filler now. Silver Dollar Eucalyptus is one of my favorite pairings, especially for an unstructured bouquet. This plant has button shaped leaves that hang naturally in your arrangement, and add fullness.
8. Ruscus is another great flowing green, perfect for unstructured and cascading arrangements. This is a great greenery to use if you’re having a garden or outdoorsy wedding theme.
9. Dusty miller is another favorite of mine because of its color. Its more of a sage blue, than a green filler. Great for a more classic structured white bouquet, or coastal weddings.
10. Last but not least, is another type of eucalyptus - gunni. Unlike the silver dollar, this type of eucalyptus is not round, but more oval in shape. Like Ruscus, Gunni is great for an unstructured arrangment.
Now that you know our faves, tell me yours in the comments! I cant wait to see what your summer wedding florals look like!
