Dynamic colors and dramatic contrasts are creating a splash with wedding flowers this summer! Popular summer wedding flower trends emphasize bright hues, such as orange, hot pink, or lime green, to keep ceremony and reception spaces unified and to create a playful, summertime floral presentation. To recreate the warmth and vividness of the summer months in weddings, brides can make a bold statement with one-color centerpieces and dramatically contrasting colors in the linens.
Beyond the wedding flower colors, Hafner Florist creates a playful presentation with citrus fruits, such as slices and peels from lemons, limes, and oranges in centerpieces. Such “upscale picnic foods” convey images of relaxation and happiness beneath the warm summer sun. Wedding designers at Hafner Florist can even utilize other fruits, such as hollowed-out watermelons, to design summery centerpieces with a unique feel. These centerpieces produce floral presentations bursting with color and liveliness.
Popular summer wedding flower trends emphasize the natural beauty of the outdoors; in addition to citrus fruits, brides can also choose natural wood containers, recycled glass vases, and watering cans or other tins for an organic, rustic feel. Choosing locally grown herbs, greens, and flowers is not only less expensive and eco-friendly, but it will help ensure the survival of a bride’s flowers in the heat.
Ultimately, summer wedding flower trends highlight the relaxed, playful aspects of such an enjoyable season. Bright colors convey a joyful, whimsical tone that integrates summertime happiness into any bride’s special day.
