As we enter into summer, you might be one of the brides preparing for the much-expected Big Day. And while you surely have plenty of reasons to love summer (and to have settled on a summer wedding date), the truth is that there may still be some things you might have not considered when planning the Big Day.

No worries! There are plenty of small additions you can make last-minute to make your summer wedding truly comfortable and unforgettable for everyone there! Read on to find out more.

  • Order some extra flowers. Even with the highest attention to detail and even by choosing flowers that are highly heat-resistant, there may still be some flowers that cannot withstand the temperature outside. This can be easily solved by simply ordering some extra flowers (for the boutonnieres, for example). After all, it is better to stay on the safe side, rather than worry about this!
  • Offer refreshments for the guests. Wedding planning can be really stressful – so it is understandable if you have left some things slip away. One of the issues you absolutely have to handle though is that of the water and refreshments. The last thing you want is to make your guests feel sick due to dehydration!
  • Get some bug-repellent weapons. Insect bites are nasty, they can be really annoying and they can definitely ruin a guest’s party mood – so keep the fliers away from yourself and your loved ones by providing everyone insect repellent sprays. Also, remember that there are various natural ways to keep bugs away too – such as citronella candles, for example. If your venue allows candles inside, these ones would be a great choice!

Summer weddings can be a huge success – precisely because everyone has a lot more energy, the days are longer and you have a wider variety of options when it comes to décor, food and flowers too.

However, please keep in mind that it is absolutely crucial to choose the right flowers for a summer wedding. Otherwise, your beautiful flower arrangements and bouquet may wilt and even die much too soon, creating an unappealing ambiance for your wedding décor.

What are the best flowers for a summer wedding? We have gathered some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • In general, shopping locally and seasonally will ensure you that you choose gorgeous flowers that truly coordinate with your wedding season – and from multiple points of view. Plus, this can help you save a lot of money, so it is more than worth looking into the option.
  • Furthermore, it is also important to choose flowers that are more resistant when exposed to direct heat and sunlight. Sunflowers, orchids, succulents, dahlias, roses, carnations, calla lilies and freesias – these are just some of the best flowers to use for a summer wedding.
  • At the same time, there are also some flowers you should avoid. Generally speaking, flowers that are very delicate are not very suitable for summer weddings (e.g. peonies or hydrangeas). If you really cannot do without them, think of water-submerged centerpieces because this will protect the flowers from premature withering.
