It’s finally summer and that means that it’s time for summer weddings. Of course, things are different this year, but we’re so excited to have the opportunity to design beautiful floral arrangements for our clients, regardless! The flowers that we’re focusing on this summer are Hydrangea, Roses, and Sunflowers. Now you’re probably thinking… “Seriously? Those aren’t original!” And you’d be right; they’re totally classic.
If you peek into almost any backyard in downtown Charleston, you’ll likely see a hydrangea bush. Hydrangea is a genus of 70 – 75 species of flowering plants native to Asia and the Americas. “Hydrangea” is derived from Greek and means “water vessel,” which is in reference to the shape of its seed capsules. (We even have a heavily hydrangea-themed wedding coming up, so stay tuned to see how amazing it looks!)
We’re focusing on three different types of roses this summer: spray roses, garden roses, and traditional roses. Seen in the pictures below, the spray roses that we’re using as an example are white majolica spray roses. For the garden roses, we’re showing you some examples of Juliet roses, and lastly, the traditional roses are vendelas. If you click on the photos, it’ll tell you which type of rose is being shown!
Sunflowers aren’t for every taste, but they do look cute at a rustic wedding or rehearsal dinner! (We have a wedding with these beauties coming up soon as well!) Sunflowers are heliotropic, which means that they turn their blooms to follow the movement of the sun across the sky, east to west.
See if you can fit some of these classic summer florals into your wedding inspo! You won’t regret it!
