Long sunny days, bright blue skies and abundant scenery – with all that the season has going for it, summertime weddings are a favorite choice for many engaged couples. Zeidler’s Flowers has provided the bouquets, centerpieces and venue arrangements for hundreds of weddings; with summer fast approaching, now is the time to contact us regarding your summer celebration!
As beautiful as a sunny day can be, it can also get quite warm. Choosing flowers that are resistant to the heat and humidity will help your arrangements to look fresh all day long. Some of the most classic wedding flowers are actually quite hardy during the summer season – roses and orchids are among the choices that resist wilting. Filling in your bouquet with unique succulents serves two purposes – not only will your arrangements be striking, but the desert-native greens carry their own water with them, making them nearly impervious to the heat.
Expert Trick: Keep jars, jugs – or any other interesting container that matches your theme – full of water and in proximity to the photos, ceremony and reception. Then when the bouquets are not being used, they can be placed in the water, allowing them to re-hydrate while doubling as floral décor.
When decorating for your outdoor summer wedding, there are many ways to use live flowers and keep them fresh. Utilizing shepherd’s hooks to suspend vases of water, you can adorn aisles and venues with cut flowers that won’t fade or wilt even on the hottest day; these rustic touches make for perfect accents at alfresco ceremonies.
