When we think of the summer, we always think of spending time outside. There are few things better than a long summer day that ends with a barbecue in a backyard surrounded by a garden that’s overflowing with growth and flowers in bloom. It’s a season that never feels as though it’s going to end during its peak, yet one we know will slip away all too soon. But, we love how soirees, like weddings, ensure we delight in celebrating before fall’s colors and cooler temperatures arrive.
Just like spring, summer and gardens go hand-in-hand. As a result, the summer boasts one of the greatest varieties of in-season flowers. And, these blooms are meant to be included in your wedding’s showstopper piece—your wedding bouquet. Whether you’re planning a seaside celebration or a modern soiree in a hotel, we’re sharing some of our favorite summer wedding bouquets.
