Planning on having a summer wedding? There are many creative ways that brides can get around the skyrocketing temperatures, such as making it an indoor event or hosting a morning ceremony before a brunch reception. Yet having a wedding during the hot season doesn’t mean you have to compromise on your floral arrangements. Arizona is home some beautiful flora, and many of them are at their peak in the summertime. The warmer temperatures cause many beauties to bloom, and they make excellent summer bouquet arrangements.
Garden roses and peonies are some of the more popular Arizona flowers. They are wonderful for bouquets due to their unique appearance and unbelievably delicious scent. Garden rose blooms are usually larger than the typical rose and naturally come in a whole host of colors ranging from white, to bright pink, to mellow yellow. Peonies are soft and feathery in appearance, and typically come in sweet pink shades. Another popular foliage that is used in Arizona bouquets are succulents. They are native to Arizona and incredibly hardy – an excellent choice for a wedding that captures the spirit of the desert. For a sweet burst of color, summer dahlias provide a beautiful visual element to any bouquet or centerpiece. White is a very popular wedding color during the summertime, and jasmine blooms are a perfect option for any bride wanting to emulate that classic look.
