Summer is the perfect time to showcase your special wedding day. There are some very sought-after varieties of Wedding Flowers that naturally bloom and showcase their beauty. What is lovely for the Wedding Flowers for Summer 2021 is that couples are using colour palettes that reflect their own personalities and connections.

Intricate dahlias and fluffy peonies are always popular Wedding Flowers with brides; however, we are also seeing smaller blooms creeping into the spotlight more. The texture of Wedding Flowers is being explored more using both dried and fresh flowers together. Couples are not always wanting greenery in their flowers, but they do not want the flower ball used in previous years.

Every couple will have their own favourite colours and style, but it is the texture and design that make them strike and stand out. So, what are some of the trends …

Ideas for the bridal bouquet

This is very personal to each bride’s personality, and it is important to remember there are no rules as to what is allowed. Most brides want it to stand out and enhance the beauty of the dress and flowers of the venue. Do not be afraid to be experimental and choose the flowers that reflect your soul, inner love, and beauty.

Previously brides wanted the tidy ball effect with not a leaf or petal out of place.

This has somewhat changed, and shape and composition has varied a lot. The natural, no frill’s rustic theme is now very trendy using a variety of textures and softness to the floral design. The use of wildflowers, dried flowers and pampas grass are extremely popular.

Pale Pinks

Popular pink is always a fond choice of many brides. Pink signifies purity and beauty and is an incredibly soft and subtle shade to add to any colour theme. They perfectly suit the weddings of all seasons and places. Many brides love the peonies and large fluffy head garden roses with soft eucalyptus and succulents.

Blue and purple

This colour compliments the blue suits worn by many grooms at today’s weddings. It also suits the blue, silver and purple dresses worn by bridesmaids. This colour along with purple offers a strong sense of rest, glory, and royalty. Hydrangeas look stunning alongside the creams and soft lilacs.

Peach is a colour choice for the contemporary bride, add in some creams and it is a real hit for the perfect bridal bouquet. It offers sophistication, romance, and innocence. The perfect blend that compliments each other and offer a natural, softness and elegance.
