Throughout my time as a floral designer, I have learned that for many brides, when they think of a bridal bouquet, they think of the traditional rose and they just aren't that excited about it. I totally get it. Traditional roses aren't for everyone, but I really believe that flowers are for everyone. So if roses aren't your thing, no problem; let's see what else is out there that will make your summer wedding stand out.
Dahlias are just big, fluffy flowers with lots of color variation and lots of petals. Have you ever heard of dinner plate dahlias? It's because they are literally as big as a dinner plate. During the summer months dahlias are in season so they get especially big and bouncy. Cafe au Lait Dahlias are my favorite, but they come in lots of different colors and are perfect for a summer wedding!
Blushing Bride Protea
Blushing Bride Protea are somewhat difficult to get when they are out of season. Which is why summer brides should take full advantage of these gorgeous flowers for their wedding! They have the perfect mix of creamy and pinky tones. Plus, they are called "blushing bride" which is just too cute and apropos for a wedding.
Is it a flower maze? Is it a flower brain?? Is it a flower alien?!?
Nope. It's coxcomb and it's so cool. It comes in super bright colors, too. Think bright magenta, bright orange, bright yellow. I love how funky it is and if that's what you're after for your wedding flowers, coxcomb is the perfect fit.
There are many, many more non-rose flowers out there that are perfect for summer weddings, and I think many brides just don't even know about them. So if traditional roses just don't tell your story, don't fret. I am absolutely certain that we can find the perfect flower to fit your style and personality!
