Inspired By: Summer Florals

Summer has well and truly hit here in beautiful Queensland, which means there’s a whole new season of beautiful blooms available for summer brides! The best thing about summer fleurs is that there are so many colours and textures available, perfect for any wedding theme. I’m always inspired by how much prettiness there is in my own garden, and at the flower markets at this time of year!

I thought I would share some of my favourites below, to help you when you’re making decisions about your bouquets, and decorations:

King Proteas Proteas are so different, and hold well in extremely hot temperatures – perfect for Queensland summer!

Dahlias With their almost architectural petals, dahlias add a perfect amount of texture to any bouquet.

Lisianthus The perfect compliment to roses, these soft blooms look stunning when paired with David Austins, peonies, and a smattering of greenery. Their buds can also be incorporated into the bouquet.

So much texture in one little bloom! I love these grouped in a bunch, with tonnes of greenery to make them really stand out.

And if you’re a peony girl, they are generally still available in early December!

You might not be aware, but when you choose your wedding date, your favourite flowers might not be available. If you’re certain you want a certain bloom to feature, it’s best to take this into consideration when locking in your big day!
