Wedding Flowers: Warm Weather Bloomers
We've always been big fans of summer weddings, and it seems we're not alone.
Online wedding planner Bride Book has revealed that two-thirds of nuptials for 2017 & 2018 will take place during the summer months.
And it's easy to see why weddings in June, July and August are so popular: the warmer weather, the lighter evenings, and the gorgeous flowers in bloom.
And whilst we love seeing seasonal flowers at weddings, our floristry knowledge is zero.
'That blue one, please...and *pointing* the red one, oh what's the one next to it? Yeah, I'll have six of those.'
^ literally us at the florist.
So we thought we'd put some pictures to petals and list a few of our favourites that are sure to look ideal in bouquets, boutonnieres and on top of tables over the coming months.
We'd love to hear what your favourite blooms are, too.
These make for excellent centre pieces but can also be used in bouquets, too. Their delicate petals make them ideal for both elaborate or simple arrangements, and their spread of colours mean they're easy to match to a theme.
Gerberas add a fantastic pop of colour in vases or bouquets. Bold and beautiful, they'll help ramp up a colour theme in your reception venue or they can be a gorgeous accent of colour to break up soft minimalism.
With petals that look like they could have been painted in watercolour, freesias are soft, subtle and delicate and they're gorgeous amongst clean and understated decor. And they smell amazing!
There's no pretensions with this flower. Colourful and simple, this flower stands out on its own or can add wonderful depth in the background of a bolder, brighter bloom.
Do you have a favourite warm weather flower? And what would you have at your wedding or, indeed, what did you have. We'd love to hear about it.
