Flowers set the tone for every wedding ceremony and reception. They allow you to coordinate color schemes and bring the whole decor of your event together in a cohesive manner. Floral arrangements are beautiful and come in multiple varieties. Here are 5 of the most popular flower types of flowers to consider for your summer wedding.

  1. Sunflowers are a classic flower for the summer months. Sunflowers are vibrant and joyful and can set the tone for your big day. The yellow color and large nature of sunflower make them pop and are unique to the summer season. They do not come in other colors, but yellow definitely signifies summer and the sun. Try pairing sunflowers with another complimentary flower such as Black-eyed-Susans to reduce the sunflower from being too dramatic or overpowering.
  2. You can never go wrong with roses. Roses always make a beautiful flower arrangement for a traditional look and style. You can choose from a variety of colors that will work with any color scheme and decor. In addition, roses are much cheaper to purchase from a florist during the summer months, which could save you a great deal of money on your floral arrangement budget. Roses will look fantastic alone or in coordination with other types of flowers depending on your personal preference. Roses stand for love and happiness, so their symbolic nature is relevant as well.
  3. Calla Lilies look sophisticated and stunning. They are available in an array of colors such as white, deep burgundy, peach, purple, and yellow.
