Pomegranate, Apricot and Eucalyptus 

Deep into the summer, deep into the countryside, these colours are about embracing a little grit and keeping it classy at the same time. Let your hair down, get dancing, and let's toast the bride and groom.

Loose wedding bouquets and wild, cascading arrangements and centrepieces placed on top of outdoor banquet hall style tables are popular floral decorations. 

Apricot, Mint Green and Gold

Feel beautiful and full of summer's wondrous warmth with these pretty and light pastels and metallic accents to make your wedding absolutely perfect. Outdoor venues are ideal. Spacious, fresh air, natural gardens, and perhaps a pond or running water tucked away somewhere—there's nothing better.

Purple, Blood Orange and Maroon

This is an outdoorsy, evening wedding reception palette that will match perfectly with the shades and hues of a summer sunset. As the dusk settles around your wedding celebration, you’ll notice the warmth and vibrant atmosphere filling the patio, garden and mixing with the candlelight.

Orchids, lilacs, anemones, roses and lilies are just the right flowers you’ll want for your floral arrangements and wedding decorations. They’ll promote a sense of lush intimacy and allure for an extravagant, sexy finish on any arrangement.

Shades of Blue, Lavender and Light Green

To pull this off elegance is a must. This early summer and late spring colour combination works beautifully within urban garden settings and with shabby chic wedding decor (a cocktail bar and rooftop views of London wouldn’t hurt, either!).

For wedding centrepieces, you are going for candelabra, cascading flower arrangements and greenery, long tables and ornately patterned table clothes; natural wooden furniture—tables, flooring and chairs—in cherry wood, walnut and beige or tawny yellow upholstery.

Grey-Green, Gold & Off-White

Equally elegant and refined, this light green, gold and variation-on-white combo is probably one of the more flexible wedding colour themes. Yellow hues in the white flirt with the gold, while bringing out the lighter striations in the grey. You can really plan to use these colours during any season.

Red, Minty Green and Bright White

Most people might think this is a Christmas colour palette—but not so. If you work with a wedding florist and get your shades just right, then you’ll have a combination of wedding colours and flowers that are super fun, less formal and more relaxed.

The red should be bright, leaning toward orange, and the green several shades lighter than evergreen, like a mint leaf. The white has a balancing effect. These colours are ideal for seaside and destination weddings, taking place right on the beach or set back from the harbour, with a grand view of the sea.

Summer Wedding Flowers: Create the Natural Look for Your Summer Event

Sunday, May 15th, 2016

The natural, woodland look is perfect for summer wedding flowers. Even if the big day isn’t held outdoors, the sunlight and blue skies inspire the desire to bring the outside indoors and have decorations featuring greenery and rustic touches. Wedding bouquets are ‘undone’, centrepieces evoke the magical florist and everywhere are touches of nature to bring charm and beauty to the proceedings. Be inspired by the natural look and speak to your London wedding florist about how to tailor it to your style.

Natural Wedding Bouquets

Summer wedding bouquets for natural theme need to have the undone look, with different shapes and textures arranged together in a relaxed style. Bouquets should feel abundant and overflowing with flowers and foliage: pair full blooms like peonies and roses with tall stocks, dainty daisies and trailing foliage. Fasten with natural elements like twine or hessian. You can use a similar style for wedding buttonholes, bridal posies and floral place settings. Instead of wedding flowers, go eco-friendly and modern and choose a green wedding bouquet where foliage is the main feature. Incorporate kale flowers, berries, succulents or herbs for an unusual and charming look.

Magical Wedding Centrepieces

A glass terrarium filled with pebbles, succulents and air plants will make for an unusual floral table decoration and will be a talking point for guests. Incorporate natural elements like moss, twigs and woodland flowers to create stunning wedding centrepieces inspired by the forest. Wildflowers are low-key but beautiful options for wedding table arrangements: think chamomile daisies, cornflowers, bluebells and foxgloves. Summer wedding flowers gathered from the garden like sweet peas or English roses can be arranged in vintage vessels or simple glass vases for an elegant and natural look.

Charming Chair Decorations

Green, luscious foliage can be attached to the backs of chairs for the ceremony and reception with floral wire. Adorn with ribbons and flowers or just stay with the green and create a beautiful woodland vibe for the big day. Tie lavender to the backs of chairs to create a scented and delightful look, or tie posies of summer wedding flowers to the edge of each chair. These extra touches will really wow your guests and make the day magical and memorable for all.

Au Naturel Place Settings

Mini succulents make great on-trend place settings and also double as favours – they’re great, low maintenance plants that will brighten the bathroom or office. Napkins can be decorated with herbs like lavender or rosemary, or wildflowers and elements of the bride’s bouquet. Or instead of summer wedding flowers as place settings, write guests’ names onto natural found items like pebbles and shells. This means they’ll have a souvenir to keep to remind them of the special day.

Summer Wedding Flowers – Let There be Light!

A rustic summer wedding is best held outdoors – although this can be difficult with the unpredictable English weather! If you are lucky enough to have a warm and sunny day, create a magical look with paper lanterns, candles and fairy lights strung through trees and trailing over the chairs and tables. Candles can also be incorporated into floral wedding centrepieces and place settings.

Alternative Wedding Flower Ideas for Summer

Friday, August 28th, 2015

It can be hard to choose the wedding style of your dreams: from the venue to the dress to the food and the flowers, there are so many wonderful things to choose from to make the day really special. And for the more alternative bride and groom, looking for something unique and maybe a little quirky, there are plenty of options. Why not choose a bright pink wedding dress, a venue on the beach, a bouquet of feathers or sparklers instead of confetti? Here is some fabulous inspiration for a truly unique wedding that will be remembered for years to come.

Unusual Wedding Venues

A church ceremony, a stately home or a hotel – these are all traditional and favourite venues for weddings in the UK. But why not consider something different? After all, there’s only one day in your life to get married and if you’re looking for alternative ideas, the event promises to be truly memorable.

Make it a museum: there are many interesting museums in London and beyond that offer interesting wedding spaces for the special day. The Horniman Museum in South London offers a beautiful glass house for the occasion, while the Museum of Brands could make a perfect venue for a modern design-focused couple.

Quirky bars: perhaps it’s a place of special significance or perhaps it’s just the style that gets you: plenty of stylish bars and restaurants in London and other UK cities have wedding licences for an urban do.

History in the making: many historical buildings can make a special wedding venue, such as the Globe Theatre, Hampton Court Palace or Leeds Castle.

Natural settings: if the weather is benevolent, what could beat an English garden, forest or beach for a summer wedding spot? There are even caves that offer weddings in the UK, and of course plenty of city places – like Kew Gardens – can provide an outdoor option with indoor spaces if needed.

Unique Wedding Dress Ideas

Many women choose classic white, full length gowns for their special day, but there’s no need to go with the flow. Nowadays, anything goes – from bright coloured dresses to shorter looks.

Add some colour: symbolising purity, white has long been a popular option, but who’s to say you can’t choose your favourite colour? Blue, yellow or even red wedding gowns are all available – or go for dip-dyed, patterned or embroidered numbers.

Top of the crops: two piece numbers and cropped dresses with high waisted skirts are very fashionable at the moment – why not apply to wedding dresses? This look can be truly classy whilst also strikingly modern.

Try trousers: trousers don’t just have to be for the groom – there are many elegant styles to choose from the special day. Or even try a jump suit, playsuit – or go all out with shorts for a laid back summer wedding.

Glitter ball: metallic styles – such as those in gold and silver – add a true touch of glamour to the proceedings, whether as embellishment or all-over sparkle. This, after all, is the bride’s chance to really shine!

Alternative Wedding Bouquets

Flowers are a classic and beautiful choice for wedding bouquets, but for brides looking for something different there are plenty of options. Roses are more traditional wedding flowers but for summer there are lots of choices for bride and bridesmaids bouquets: such as peonies, sunflowers, wildflowers or sweet peas. More exotic choices could be anthuriums or orchids. For alternatives to flowers completely, here are some unique ideas:

Fabric flowers: silk or flowers made of another fabric mean the bride has an everlasting memento of the special day. They can be made to any specification and adorned with pearls, jewels or feathers if desired.

Paper flowers: some brides choose a single giant paper flower, and slightly smaller ones for the bridesmaids. Or the bride could hold a bouquet of paper flowers made of coloured paper, or even out of maps or book pages to create  more meaningful design.

Rustic realisations: wheat sheaves are lovely rustic ideas for an outdoor wedding, or choose herbs like lavender, sage and rosemary for a truly traditional (but unusual) option. Herbs were the original components of bouquets and said to ward off evil spirits.

Haberdashery: bouquets can really be made of anything that suits the personality of the bride – consider brooches, buttons or feathers to create colourful displays.

What to Throw Instead of Rice

There is a common misconception that throwing rice at weddings is bad for birds – this has been proven to be untrue. However, paper or plastic confetti certainly isn’t good for birds or the environment, and at the very least means lots of clearing up (many venues won’t allow it to be thrown) so here are some alternatives to throwing rice or confetti.

Bird seed: give your guests cute little printed packet of seed to throw for a nature-lovers weddings. The birds will do the job of clearing it up themselves!

Leaves: even more environmentally friendly, throwing leaves – especially autumnal ones in red and gold – will look beautiful as they flutter around the bride and groom.

Paper planes: a lovely symbol of the journey the couple are going on. Guests can make their own with different coloured paper and write on them a message for the bride and groom. Best to throw over them rather than at them though!

Sparklers: having guests wave sparklers will make truly stunning night-time photos, perfect for winter weddings but also lovely choices for the summer.

Bubbles: a whimsical idea ideal for summer weddings, especially if there’s a fairground theme for the occasion.

This special day is a chance for the bride and groom to really express their personalities, and these are only a few of the possible options for a couple looking for something a little bit different for that special day. Wedding flower ideas and venues abound online so you’re sure to find your perfect style.
