With warm temperatures and nature in bloom, this celebratory season is pretty much the ideal time to say "I do." Once you set a date and venue for your summer affair, that's just the beginning of your wedding planning process. Now you can get into all the fun details that can help you craft and achieve your vision. Whether you're picking out the fashion to wear while walking down the aisle or choosing the florals and table settings that will enhance your reception, there's definitely a few choices you'll need to make to make your dream summer wedding a reality.
Opting for in-season flowers means you'll have a ton of choices for your bouquets and centerpieces.
Standards like roses and carnations are certainly available, but you can also find statement pieces such as dahlias or sunflowers during the summer months. The best part about in-season blooms is that they're easier for your florist to get, so your flowers will be fresher and you'll likely save on your floral budget. “Choosing flowers that are locally in-season is the least expensive way to go,” says Laurel White, owner of Adornments Flowers and Finery. “The higher the demand, the more expensive.”
