From colourful fruit bouquets to dramatic floral arches, here are some gorgeous summer wedding flower ideas from Instagram
There’s lots of reasons to love a summer wedding – the long days, the warm weather, the sunshine (hopefully), the Bank Holidays and the fact that everyone is generally in a happy mood.
Another great reason to hold a summer wedding is that it’s flower season so you’ll have the pick of our native flowers without having to spend a fortune on expensive imports. Roses, peonies, stocks, daisies, lavender, they are all there for the picking, you just need to decide how to you use them.
Classic Hand-Tied Bouquet
We never tire of looking at beautiful hand tied bouquets. Relaxed and unstructured is the look of the minute and this just-picked style of bouquet is perfect for bohemian and rustic weddings.
Fruit and Florals
For a modern take on the classic bouquet why not add fruit into your design? Trailing grapes work well in a cascading bouquet while smaller, more structured fruits such as strawberries, limes, lemons work well in a tight posy design.
A pretty alternative to a tiara or piece of hair jewellery, a floral garland is the epitome of summer and perfectly compliments a casual beach wedding or outdoor wedding ceremony.
No wedding reception is complete without a floral table centrepiece. From small and simple, to tall and imposing, table flowers are guaranteed to give your reception room the wow factor.
Don’t hold back when it comes to using flowers in your wedding day decor (while staying within budget obviously!). During the summer months flowers are cheap and abundant, so you should be able to get more for your money. Put them to good use and place then where they’ll make the most impact. Think about the locations you’re most likely to have pictures taken in too – the church door, the aisle, the reception room etc.
TIP: Use large bunches of flowers to brighten up a dull corner or hide an ugly feature.
