Wedding or no wedding, the summer season is one of the best times of the year for flowers, since so many of them are naturally in bloom between May and September. While your exact wedding flowers will depend on your budget, your wedding florist, and your wedding style, it never hurts to start looking at inspiration! In the meantime, we're sharing these summer wedding bouquets to help you figure out what you do and don't like, so you can share your vision with the pros later on. (Reminder: we suggest hiring your wedding florist at least 10 months before your special day.) Here are 30 summer wedding bouquets for any style.
What are the best summer wedding flowers?
- Peonies: Arguably one of the most in-demand wedding flowers, peak peony season is typically between May and June, making these beautiful flowers perfect for an early summer wedding bouquet.
- Garden roses: Roses thrive in the sunshine, which makes them really pop during the summer months. While you can source roses year-round, summer is ideal for the most naturally fragrant and colorful varieties, like cabbage roses and heirloom roses.
- Lavender: While lavender will add a fragrant element to your summer wedding bouquet, this sun-loving flower is also popular for wedding centerpieces, boutonnieres, or even lavender-infused cocktails and foods (it's edible!).
- Hydrangeas: Hydrangeas are a classic summer flower—chances are, you'll see them almost everywhere from early spring through early fall. They grow in a handful of colors, from green and white to blue, purple, and pink, depending on the type of soil.
- Delphinium: As one of the only naturally blue flowers to exist, delphinium is especially pretty for a summer wedding bouquet, especially if you want a long-stem presentation bouquet. It looks similar to larkspur, which blooms in different colors including white and pink.
