Choosing flowers you like is obviously the best place to start but can these be used in the displays you want? Will they work for the venue? Fear not we’re here to help with our best in-season summer wedding flower suggestions, which will hopefully leave you feeling more knowledgeable about summer wedding flowers and more confident to know you are making the right choice when it comes to creating your beautiful and unique wedding day.
Firstly, your florist is there to help and advise you on choosing the right flowers and discuss with you what flowers will be in season on your chosen wedding date. Choosing seasonal flowers means you are being more eco, sustainable and lowering the carbon footprint. Imported flowers can come with a huge expense both monetary and ethically so working with a florist who works seasonally and buys from local British growers can have a huge impact. The choices are beautiful and varied and your florist can create something really special. Here are some beautiful suggestions of flowers that are in season throughout the summer months…
Summer Wedding Flowers
Summer is the prime time for flowers and there are lots to choose from! Classic wedding flowers such as roses are in full beautiful bloom so you’ll have your pick of the bunch. Hydrangeas are also in season meaning if you want dramatic centrepieces and a single flower bouquet they’re a great choice. also, using a bigger flower may mean that you need fewer flowers for your decor. Finding a florist that sources their produce locally too is another great way to add another ethical element to your wedding.

If being sustainable is really important to you then make sure to ask your florist about where they source their flowers or if they grow, and how they grow them. Depending on the date of your wedding, you might still want to crossover into having dried and everlasting flowers too. Often you can combine both fresh and dried to create something beautiful and seasonal that works to the style you love.
