Flower picking for warm-weather wedding

A wedding bouquet and satin wrap feature the year’s most prominent color: ultra violet. Incorporating seasonal blooms into a bouquet usually is a wise choice that can yield a bit of economy, without cutting any lush look but an inch. Warm-weather blossoms provide endless options for vibrant arrangements. Think about what this might mean in a bouquet and as a complement to other wedding colors. Of course, the bouquet a bride carries is only a single element of designing with flowers. Yellows Sunflowers, yellow roses and daisies are all great choices for the summer bouquet. These sunny hues are undeniably fun and offer a uniquely vibe that is identifiable with the season in memorable photos. Snapdragon and hypericum make great filler in lighter tones. Pinks and purples Hot pink Gerbera daisies are eye-catching and pair well with yellows. Pink roses from ivory-shaded to brights are classic, while multi-colored stargazer lilies also are a summery sight with distinctive aroma. Veronica spikes partially open to add to a multi-hued display. Of course, the color of the year is ultra violet, which adds depth and sparkle in its many shades to any bouquet. Deep plummy calla lilies make a statement, while cooler purple aster, phlox, freesia and alstromeria also appeag. Add punchy pinks to a mass of lavender blooms for a unique aesthetic. Oranges Orange-hued blooms also seem to have been ripped from the landscape of summer. Gerbera daisies, orange-edged black-eyed susans and even sunflowers, carnations and snapdragons all add a warm touch. Softer colors A more subtle palette defines a softer feel or even lets a bouquet play a less prominent role perhaps letting other details shine brighter. Mix pale pink and yellow roses or pair yellow and white blooms for a light, airy feel. Mix it up If your color scheme embraces a wide variety of vibrant colors, a host of summertime flowers fits the bill. The sky is the limit when it comes to incorporating colorful blooms. Carry a rainbow of alstromeria blooms, daisies, roses or daylilies or make a statement with an all-rose bouquet. Centerpieces A white metal basket spilling over with weighty peonies. Bright daisies resting in crystal-clear glass vases. Clumps of lavender in blue-tinted glass jars. Summer flowers are made for adding punches of color to centerpieces. To add height to the table, the reach of striking phalaenopsis orchids draw the eye upward. For the ceremony Add interest to the aisles with kissing balls of blooms, either hanging from chairs lining the aisle or a shepherd’s hook, or lying on the ground or from sides of an archway.
