Oh there is just something about wild flowers that makes my heart melt. I don’t know if it’s the bold combination of colors or the way that they are so imperfectly perfect when bunched together, but what I do know is that I LOVE wildflowers– especially at a wedding. Wild flowers are whimsical, dreamy, organic, and just plain pretty to look at! I love the endless amounts of possibilities of combinations with wildflowers. You can either go with bright colors or muted colors, more blooms or more greens, tall or short, full or light and airy, etc. If you haven’t decided on your floral arrangements for a spring or summer wedding, check out wildflowers…. but be careful… you’ll fall in love!
Planning a summer wedding? Don’t know which direction to go? Well, what better way than to just embrace all things summer?! Bright colors, luscious florals, lemonade, mason jars, bold patterns… ahhh why can’t it be summer year-round? For a cheery, relaxing summer affair, embrace the pinks, purples, blues, oranges, and greens. Go for a variety of florals and place them in mason jars. Look for a bold patterned table runner. Serve yummy iced drinks to keep your guests cool and comfortable. If I could give you ONE piece of advice for a summer “themed” wedding: choose things that make you smile! What better way to celebrate the biggest day of your life than with happy, bright, cheerful things around you!
In my opinion, nothing says summer like green and yellow! Bright and vibrant colors are the epitome of summer sunshine! I personally love yellow and green as a wedding palette because there are so many options. Either pale yellow and green to a create a subtle and sweet wedding or bright yellows and greens for a lively and energetic wedding. Using greens and yellows is also a great way to incorporate fruit as decor... lemons and limes are just too cute together! There are so many options with this palette and it is sure to create the ultimate lively summer wedding!
Plantation Weddings, set on the steps of an old Civil War-era home, have captured my heart. Remember this gorgeous Southern wedding by La Cosa Bella Events? I still can’t get it out of my head! For a truly Southern wedding, Brides need to look no further than a wedding at Lowndes Grove Plantation in Charleston. This venue sets the bar and is decked out with lush florals in shades of pearl, peach, and dusty silvers. Ever since I got into the floral industry, I seriously obsess over flowers at weddings! These arrangements of white peonies, pink anemones, the david austin juliet rose, and ranunculus. All my favorites, y’all! Riverland Studios captured every moment, be sure to check them out when looking for a photographer in Charleston.

Baby’s breath is no more an inexpensive, blah choice for wedding flowers. It has been reborn and is on its way to making huge strides in the wedding industry. I love how light, airy, and whimsical baby’s breath is– especially when it is all bundled up! It is so simple yet beyond elegant. You can incorporate baby’s breath into various aspects of your wedding– reception decor, boutonnieres, hair accessories, centerpieces, etc. The best part about baby’s breath is the price! It is so affordable. Take a peek at the images below for some inspirational ways to incorporate a fresh baby’s breath of air in your wedding….
