When you think of a wedding, one of the first things that comes to mind (after the bride and groom, of course) is the spectacular display of flowers! Flower arrangements for summer weddings are even more special as local florists usually have more choices due to the number of flowers in season.
Choosing the Perfect Floral Arrangements for Your Big Day
Choosing the perfect floral arrangements for your wedding may seem like a simple task on the surface. But with the hundreds of flowers and greenery to choose from, having a knowledgeable florist by your side can help you bring your vision for your special day to life. Here are some tips for choosing the perfect floral arrangements for your wedding day.
Consider the Time of Year
Flower arrangements for summer weddings in Toronto often are dictated by the availability of in-season flowers. Based on the month you plan on getting married and your theme, there are various styles to choose from.
Florals set the tone for any wedding venue—whether its big or small. If you’re planning a summer wedding on a tropical beach, in a stunning garden, or at a romantic hideaway, consider you can elevate the specific with the right flowers.
Determine Your Colour Palette
The colour palette of a summer wedding often includes vibrant shades of yellow, blue, purple, and green. When choosing wedding flowers, the various colour combinations of in-season blooms provide a stunning canvas for a talented florist.
A designer florist can interchange various flower species to create the appropriate arrangements. In the floral world, blue denotes peace and serenity while pink offers happiness and grace with red symbolizing passion and love. Most wedding coordinators recommend using white flowers within the theme to resonate bliss and purity of the marriage.
Choose the Right Flowers
Designing bouquets and floral decorations for summer weddings may come naturally to most florists. The availability of in-season blooms depends greatly on the location of the event. With summer comes the possibility of extreme heat, humidity, and/or a freak thunderstorm that can have an adverse effect on the flowers, particularly with garden weddings.
Thankfully, there are summer flowers that offer resiliency to summertime environmental conditions. Consider the more delicate petals that require constant watering such as hydrangea or lilacs for interior vase décor. Roses, calla lilies, sunflowers, and sugarbush offer a long-lasting beautiful appeal.
Design Bouquets and Floral Decorations
With flower decorations for weddings in Toronto, the bride’s bouquet is often the star of the show! But don’t forget about archways, aisles, and reception tables! Using flowers that will last throughout the day is essential in ensuring the completed look is uniform and “fresh”.
The possibilities to use wedding flowers as décor are endless! Bouquets, boutonnieres, aisle markers, hair crowns, table vases, and a flower wall can all be incorporated into any theme for a wedding. From shabby chic to luxury and modern contemporary, flowers can be the perfect wedding décor!
Work with a Professional Floral Designer
For the best luxury flower arrangement for summer weddings, you should work closely with a reputable florist. Collaboration with a professional who has experience and knowledge in designing summer wedding bouquets will be key.
When you have your consultation with the florist, make sure to discuss your expectations, your budget, preferred flower colours and species, and the overall theme for the ceremony and reception. As most brides have a vision for their wedding flowers, a professional florist can help coordinate and add inspiration to enhance your vision.
Consider Your Floral Budget
With a tight floral budget, it is essential to choose a florist that will understand and abide by your budget. If the flowers you want are not obtainable due to high shipping costs or availability, the florist should be able to recommend similar blooms within your budget.
For special occasion such as weddings, professional florists order more flowers than the original plan calls for to ensure there are no wilted, dead, or damaged blooms on the day of the wedding. As mentioned above, the summer heat and/or a sudden downpour can affect the liveliness of flowers, especially throughout the day and evening.
