Flowers in Season for August
August weddings are very popular in South Florida. The mid-year months bring a variety of gorgeous florals that are perfect for outdoor weddings and sun-kissed beach weddings. Summer weddings are often chosen by soon-to-be-brides because they opt for a bright, colorful and outdoorsy themed wedding as opposed to mysterious, deep colored evening wedding. Summer weddings take place at nighttime as well, but we’ve found that it’s the sunshine and vibrant sunsets that these couples often seek.
So we have gathered the best types of flowers in bloom to help you envision color schemes and floral placement if you’re planning an August wedding.
- Sunflowers– These flowers are perfect for country themed weddings. The bright yellow and gold compliment the noticeable green stems.
- Alstroemerias– Also known as the Peruvian Lily, this is another long stemmed flower looks great with tall crystal vases and mixes well with a variety of colors.
- Daffodiles– Keeping in the yellow-toned family, Daffodils, are a beautiful sign of a bright and sunny wedding. They’re perfect for outdoor weddings and ideal for blending with sunflowers.
- Snap Draggons– We love these flowers because they add height to balance out a room. They’re very statuesque and allow centerpieces to rise above eye level.
- Lillium Stargazer– If you like to think outside the box, the Lillium Stargazer is perfect for you. Their long petals express romance and mystery while their pink and purple tones showcase fun and excitement.
- Orchids– Whether it’s the Orchid Paphionopedilum, Orchid Cymbidium or the Orchid Cymbidium, each orchid species add creativity to floral arrangements. We love to add them to table centerpieces and even hang them upside down in tall vases. You can never really go wrong with any of these stellar orchid plants.
- Roses– Do we need to even get into this one?! Roses are brides go-to flower 95% of the time. We all know roses as a symbol of romance and love. We almost always add roses to a wedding in some way. It doesn’t have to be a full bouquet, but it’s at most weddings somewhere in the room, trust us 😉
- Pussy Willow– The perfect plant to create drama in your florals. Anytime you need to need to either fill in space or add a calm accent, the Pussy Willow is come in handy.
- Freesias– Known for their vibrant colors, Freesias can often bloom in bright purple and even hints of hot pink. A lot of our brides choose to incorporate these beautiful flowers for their coastal weddings in South Florida.
- Magnolia– Who doesn’t love a freshly bloomed Magnolia? What’s so great about these flowers is they’re gorgeous as they are, but since they’re neutral shades, they look great painted into the colors of your choice.
