Simply Stunning Flowers recommends beautiful summer florals

Summer is the best time to embrace bright and beautiful flowers. You could consider a tropical design filled with anthurium, ginger flowers, orchids and protea all finished with palm leaves and monstera. This would create a vibrant palette of hot pink, coral, peach and white.

For the more rustic couples, it has to be sunflowers – the bigger, the brighter, the better! A cluster of these yellow giants softened with gypsophila and gorgeous grey-silver eucalyptus is all you need. For late-summer weddings, it has to be the quirky dahlia. With so many colours and styles, they give the ultimate wow factor all by themselves.

The colour trend for 2022 is orange and peach, and I can't wait to get stuck in. So summer couples, be brave, be daring and add a splash of colour to your day!
