Summer Wedding Blooms
Updated: Nov 19, 2021
Summer weddings are incredibly popular, especially in areas like Edmonton where the weather is only warm for a short period. If you’re planning a summer wedding, there are many wonderful flowers to choose from. Here are six of our favourites.
This is one of the most popular wedding blooms. It’s available in a variety of colours, and it is relatively easy to source in the summer. It is both large and bold, as well as delicate and pretty.
These dramatic flowers can be a bit pricier, but as long as your wedding is in June or mid-July, they are easy enough to source.
Hear me out – we know chrysanthemums seems like a simple flower, but that’s its beauty. It comes in a variety of colours, is affordable, readily accessible, pairs well with other flowers in bouquets, and is sturdy in the heat.
This is a new flower on the summer wedding scene – a cousin to the ranunculus flower and a cousin to the anemone – and it resembles a butterfly as it blooms. It is typically available in June and July, and comes in a variety of colours.
If you need a large flower to anchor a bouquet or to stand out on its own, a dahlia is a great choice, and relatively easy to source for an Alberta wedding.
If you’re planning a rustic wedding, a sunflower is a perfect choice, and screams “big Alberta sunshine.” It is large enough to go solo, but alsp looks wonderful in a bouquet.
