Seasonal Summer Wedding Flowers

It’s the end of June which means we are right in the middle of the summer wedding season! We absolutely love helping brides plan their perfect summer wedding, and we understand that flowers are a significant part of your budget. There are many reasons to choose your flowers by what is in season, not the least of which is improving their quality and decreasing their cost. Here are some of our favorite seasonal summer flowers that are perfect for your wedding decor. 


Cornflower is a lovely addition to your wedding flowers by being that something blue. Cornflowers are highly heat tolerant, and add a touch of wildflower to every bouquet. 

Queen Anne’s Lace

The faux version of this gorgeous plant can be found growing on the Alabama highways as soon as the last frost of the season is over. This heat loving summer floral is great for adding volume to any wedding arrangement. Utilize Queen Anne’s Lace over baby’s breath to get a delicate appearance without sacrificing fragrance. 


Sunflowers are the iconic flower for rustic weddings, but their use doesn’t stop there. Sunflowers can come in a range of sizes and colors including chocolate, burgundy, lilac, and white. If you choose to utilize sunflowers, make sure to request the pollenless variety to avoid yellow stains on your dress. 


Zinnias are a heat loving versatile flower that can complement any flower arrangement. Zinnias come in several varieties with colors ranging from pastel to near neon pink. Zinnia varieties include open faced beauties that resemble over full daisies and ball varieties that mimic mini dahlias. 


Freesia is a simple white bloom that acts as a great backdrop for your wedding flowers. Freesia has a lovely but strong fragrance that wafts several feet away from your bouquet. When using Freesia in wedding flowers, take into consideration how fragrant you would like the area to be. 

These are just a few of our favorite summer blooms for your summer wedding decor. We would love to help you plan the wedding of your dreams on any budget! For one on one assistance, please call or visit our shop in downtown Russellville to schedule your bridal consultation.
