Top 5 Summer Wedding Flower Picks
Flowers and weddings have long enjoyed a fruitful marriage, dating back to Ancient Greece when the bride and groom would wear a garland of flowers around their necks to symbolise new life, hope, and fertility.
Whilst flowers now serve a distinctly decorative function, the mastery of floral creations in enlivening and endearing a wedding setting cannot be overstated.
Despite its association with lightness, brightness, and unbridled vibrancy, the summer season is in fact one of the hardest to cater to when it comes to floral displays and bouquets. The heat can prove problematic in keeping blooms fresh and maintaining their appearance throughout the day.
Choosing flowers that are both in season and that can be sourced locally will prove a great help in ensuring your flowers champion the high temperatures.
Drawing on our experience as a unique destination-wedding venue (thanks to our inimitable All Saints Chapel, beautiful beachside setting, gourmet menu options, and experienced specialists), we’ve compiled a list of our top five picks for summer wedding flowers. Whether you’re planning your wedding for summer 2019, or beyond, take note!
Light, delicate, and available in a variety of colours, the Hydrangea is a great accent for weddings, whether used as an addition to a bouquet, or as the star of the centerpiece, for those seeking understated luxury and undeniable sophistication.
Exotic and iconic, the aromatic frangipani flower’s waxy texture means it can withstand high temperatures very well. Available in crimsons, pinks, yellows, oranges, and more, it is perhaps the simple and standout white frangipani that is best known and beloved: a tropical accent for the fun-loving couple.
Bold and bright, Asiatic Lilies are statement flowers that never fail to impress. Whether opting for elegant white, or an enticing shade of pink, red, purple, or orange, Asiatic Lilies are strong and sturdy: ideal for the summer season.
Casual and yet striking, the Gerbera Daisy’s perfectly concentric petals and typically bright colours are a must for couples seeking to inject a little energy and vitality into their wedding set-up.
Feathered and full textured, the Dahlia makes for a sound summer wedding flower option. Layer with local greenery, such as olive or eucalyptus leaves, for a rustic yet regal outcome.
