Love isn’t the only thing blossoming during the summer. Just in time for a summer wedding June, July, August provide beautiful and bright colored flowers such as Sunflowers, Jasmines and Geraniums. Whether you choose to weave one variation or multiple types in your wedding day floral arrangements, the wedding planners at The Manor will help your bouquets, centerpieces, and aisle to look elegant and smell fragrant. The Manor is here to help hand-select the best summer wedding floral arrangements for your wedding.

Creating A Balanced Color Palette

Summer flower arrangements have copious color and sizing options depending on the display, volume and proportion you wish to feature. You may choose larger bold flowers like peonies, or smaller delicate flowers and petals like mini roses to intertwine, creating a breathtaking floral arrangement. Similarly, the colors you choose can offer eye-pleasing contrast. For example, white and cream flowers pop when surrounded by bright red and rusted orange flowers. Add a few feathery lilacs to bring a hint of contrast to these stunning arrangements.

Colors for a vintage summer wedding include buttery yellows, pale greens and crisp whites. Meanwhile, a traditional summer wedding features colors of champagne, fuchsia, cherry red and beige flowers. To enhance your warm sunny day, pair hues of golden yellow, grapefruit pink, and frosted white floral arrangements. This color combination brings an eccentric and happy feel to any wedding venue.

Selecting Summer Wedding Flowers

Long-blooming perennials are ideal for summer wedding floral arrangements because they bloom throughout the summer and can withstand weather elements such as the beaming bright sun and scorching heat. Also, filler steams act to fill in the floral arrangements, thereby creating volume and depth to your display. You can find filler stems year-round and in a variety such as Waxflower, Gypsophila, Solidago, and Satice Sinuata.

Creating Floral Centerpiece Designs

Tabletop displays at your wedding reception can make a grand impact for your guests to admire. When selecting your floral arrangements, be sure to select a style of case that will best complement your floral arrangements. Vases are important design piece to hold flower arrangements and can help to compliment an entire decorative display.

For an elegant wedding, consider glass vases for your centerpieces as they can hold long-stemmed roses or flowers that have a weighty stem. For a modern wedding, consider colored ceramic vases to hold your floral arrangements. Choosing a colored vase that will contrast with your flower arrangements can make your centerpieces pop.

Furthermore, to create whimsical or art deco design feel, line the inside of a glass vase with cut up citrus fruit. Lemon and lime slices on the inside of the vases, adding a fun summertime refreshing flair to your wedding.
