Summer is one of the most popular times for weddings, and it is a season of joy and celebration. If I could dream up one word to describe summer, it would be “vibrant.” Most summer weddings call for bright, vibrantly colored flowers rather than pastels. Today let us bring the wonderful feeling of summer to your wedding with a beautiful Summer wedding palette that we’ve included those lovely summer wedding flower ideas in our palette.
Summer wedding flowers in season
Summer has an abundance of stunning flowers to choose from when choosing your wedding flowers. Whether you want you wedding to have masses of colour, be a classic white, or something in between, you’ll be able to find the flowers for you. Here are just some of the blooms you can pick in summer.
Roses : The rose is an ever popular choice for wedding floral arrangements, whether it’s summer, winter, spring, or autumn. With the ability to create a chic, stylish feel or a more relaxed, country garden feel, depending on the theme of you wedding. This blush pink roses arrangement created such an elegant look for an English country garden wedding.

Gerbera Daisies : If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, then these flowers are a very popular choice most brides would have difficulty in ignoring these wedding flowers. This simple little flower can be a gorgeous addition to your wedding’s flowers. The white variety can add an easy going feel to a wedding, or the gerbera, with its vivid colours, can add an eye-catching effect to your summer flower arrangements. Like this image mixed wild flowers + roses and daisies decorated chairs for wedding ceremony, it stopped us in our tracks the minute we first laid eyes on it.

Sunflower : A lovely and bright summer flower, the sunflower is fantastic for adding a splash of colour to your wedding. The vivid yellow will provide a great contrast to white linen or your wedding dress….Lovely a big bucket of sunflowers and wildflowers as a wedding centerpieces of marquee, which sat on a rustic chair.

I love this! All different colors mixed together for a country wildflower feel. So laid back and easy. Use a variety of blooms in vintage bottles of all shapes and sizes to brighten up your top table.

Bold & Bright Summer Wedding Ideas
Summertime is the best time for an outdoor setting. Places like gardens, a beautiful park or a beach are ideal for a wedding. It might be a good idea to celebrate the wedding in the afternoon, when it isn’t so hot anymore; take advantage of the beautiful flora, which surround you during the celebration. The nature gives you and your guests the right atmosphere for an unforgettable day.
Simple colourful wedding signs
Bring the wonderful feeling of summer to your wedding with a great wedding cake. Summer is a season known for its fabulous flowers. You can have your cake accented with summer blooms in either a neutral palette, like white with a touch of yellow or pink; if your style is a little bolder, choose bright and cheerful flowers. You can either use fresh flowers or have your baker create sugar flowers. For a fondant cake, flowers like gerbera daisies would look fresh and modern. On a buttercream cake, think about summer favorites such as hydrangea. And for a naked Victoria sponge cake use bright flowers such as Dahlia, cornflowers or sunflowers and summer fruits.

Wedding lawn games
Love these. This avoids people sitting getting bored or just standing around.
Lawn games like croquet, bocce ball, beanbag toss and horseshoes are simple to set up and easy for kids and adults to play during cocktail hour and after dinner. Not a bad idea when there’s a big gap between wedding & reception.
