Hello, my name is Hanna and I am so grateful for this opportunity to be an intern for Stylish Events for four weeks.
As this is the last day of my internship, I would love to talk about one of my favourite subjects – flowers for Spring and Summer Bouquets; probably the most important flowers you will ever choose.
Your wedding bouquet will not only be with you as you walk down the aisle on your big day, but it will also be a feature on the photographs that you will cherish forever.
Choosing your wedding flowers is never a trivial matter. Every season has different types of flowers and brides often want different types of bouquet styles.
I hope our guide to Spring and Summer Bouquets is the perfect place to start when considering what style will be the best to compliment you and your wedding dress.
Let’s start with Spring Bouquets. It’s the time of the year when there are plenty of beautiful flowers, from the iconic Tulip, the stunning Peony to fragrant Lilly of the Valley. Here are few ideas that you might find useful for your spring wedding.
Spring is full of colour, especially pastel colours. It’s the perfect time for a romantic selection of spring flowers. The most popular flowers for pastel bouquets are China blue Hyacinths, Freesias, Muscari and soft pink Roses.
Peonies and lots of greenery tied in a loose, natural style can give a romantic bohemian look. Peonies are among the most coveted flowers of the wedding season and bride’s ultimate favourite choice of flowers in Spring.
Not only are they the perfect mix of texture and softness, but also the flower represents ‘a happy marriage’. To create a perfect Boho Beauty bouquet, combine peonies with roses to create a bohemian look.
Roses are always associated with love and romance, so it’s no wonder roses are the most popular wedding flowers. Heavenly looks are created with specialty roses, for example David Austin in soft peach and ivory. The roses can be combined with elegant Calla Lilies and a little greenery.
Beside Hyacinth, Peony and Roses, there are other different types of flowers that can be perfect for your Spring wedding. For instance, Anemone, Ranunculus, Tulip, Sweet Pea, Muscari, Lily of the Valley, Lilac and Narcissi.
Summer is coming soon, and it’s an explosion of colour. Bouquets are vibrant and playful with luscious greenery. The flowers are a real celebration of the season too. Lovely Agapanthus, Peonies, Roses, Stocks, Hydrangeas, Dahlias, Sweet Peas and Nigella are desired in summer.
Bright and Beautiful
It is a playful look with popping colours and a very daring look for brides that choose bright and bold scheme for their wedding day flowers. The flowers represent optimism and work particularly well with seasonal flowers such as Peonies, Dahlias or Nigella.
This style is perfect for bride’s who want something different for their big day. Whether you are getting married home or abroad, tropical flowers are a very natural and bold look.
To create this look incorporate Strelitzia, Ginger and Heliconia. Gloriosa and Calla Lilies are also a good choice as they add structure and texture to designs.
If you’re unsure which flowers you want for your bouquet, we always suggest to our Bride’s a visit to Covent Garden Flower Market in London. It’s the most wonderful place to see every type of flower up close and personal.
I hope this guide will help you find the perfect flowers for your Spring or Summer bouquet.
Good Luck and Best Wishes
