Summertime's sunshine brings about some of the prettiest flowers around. So, it should come as no surprise that some of our favorite wedding bouquets were carried by summer brides. This season is also associated with bright, happy colors—another big win in the bridal clutch category. To see what we mean, check out the following slides, which showcase an array of amazing summer wedding bouquet ideas.
Browse wedding bouquets online to discover beautiful bridal flowers unmatched in quality and design. Wedding flowers ranging from cascading white orchids to budding vibrant peonies are guaranteed to stun your guests as you walk down the aisle. Your bridal bouquet will be sophisticatedly arranged by hand and delivered with extra care, so you can rest easy knowing you're receiving the most premium blossoms.
But keep in mind that most of those beautiful arrangements and bridal bouquets you see in pictures or magazines were probably done by professional floral designers with years of design experience and floral know-how. But if you're up to it, make the project more fun than frustrating, more awesome than awful. The keys to beautiful wedding flowers are planning every detail, getting everything together in one place, and practice, practice, practice.
Flowers for the fitting: Plan to make one of your practice bouquets for the day you'll have your wedding gown fitting. Take the bouquet with you and critically evaluate the size, shape, length of stems, colors, and the style of your dress. Get the bridesmaids together at the same time. Make a note of the changes required to make them perfect. If some of the flowers don't look right (such as daisies with a silk beaded gown), make note of the changes needed. Confirm size, shape, and colors, too.
I ordered my silk bridal bouquet from you for my August Wedding. I just wanted to say that it was better than I ever imagined. Not only do my wedding flowers look terrific in photos, but even my guests could not tell they were artificial flowers. I had people come up and touch my silk  bridal bouquet just to check. It was absolutely stunning! Thank you for a great wedding bouquet that will last a lifetime!

A nosegay wedding event bouquet is most likely the most misconstrued of all arrangements (I'm certain the name is creating the bulk of confusion). You can personalize a nosegay wedding event arrangement according to your dimension.

Practice, practice, practice: No matter how simple your plan or how confident you might feel, plan to do at least one (preferably two) practice run. Purchase the flowers you've selected to construct one centerpiece and one bouquet and put them together. Keep track of how long it takes to prepare that one, then multiply the time by how many you'll need to make. This will give you a great idea of how much time you'll need to dedicate to the flowers when the big day arrives. You might find that you've bought more flowers than you need or that you need a fuller bow, requiring more ribbon. This is a better time to realize these things than on the wedding day.
More commonly known as the carnation, the dianthus is an extremely popular flower that comes in a plethora of vibrant colors. The name dianthus comes from the two Greek words, “dios” and “anthos.” Dios refers to the Greek god, Zeus, and anthos means flower. Thus, they are known as the “flowers of God.” As regal and beautiful as they are, dianthus flowers look best as statement fillers in bouquets.
I must say I was a little hesitant on ordering silk wedding flowers and especially online. I ordered them and I was totally impressed at how beautiful they were. They really don't look like fake flowers at all! They were absolutely beautiful and the color was perfect! The silk bouquets were better than I ever thought they would be. Thanks so much! I will definitely tell friends about your website!
More flowers are in bloom on the summer solstice than on any other day of the year, and summer brides can capitalize on this floral bounty with the wide range of fragrant and affordable wedding flowers available. Not only are these flowers most affordable and lush during June, July, and August, you may also expect to see some of these flowers in bloom if you have an outdoor garden wedding. 
Make a recipe to follow: Prepare a recipe for your floral arrangements just as you would write a recipe for a food you're preparing. Each centerpiece will need a container, a block of floral foam, 12 stems of roses, five stems of baby's breath, and three stems of ivy. Well, you get the picture. Be sure you have more than you need for what you expect to make.
The epithet name for the tree fern is virgatus, which means twiggy. Because of its extremely thin stem, the tree fern is one of the easiest types of greenery to use. Unlike its namesake, the tree fern has thin, wispy branches and leaves that are often used in corsages and boutonnieres. The tree fern also works well as a solid background in a colorful bouquet.
The awkward-sounding name of this bloom derives from Greek and means “love flower.” Most often available in shades of blue or sometimes white, these delicate flower clusters add volume without density to table centerpieces. Agapanthus is gorgeous on its own when tightly clustered into a bouquet but also adds a pop of color when combined with a neutral bloom such as baby's breath.
As you can see, the blossoms that you pick for your wedding celebration will certainly establish the state of mind. Knowing that, before you choose your flowers, identify what kind of wedding celebration and reception occasion you want to have. Picking the flowers will be a wind as soon as you do that!
My love story with wedding flowers started in college when I took a basic floral design class then found myself volunteering at the campus flower shop. I studied floral design the hands-on way for several years - learning every aspect of wedding design. When I graduated, I opened my own little specialty bridal flower shop. And in the late 1990’s, I switched over to a new marketplace – the internet. And TheBridesBouquet.com was born online in 1999. The early years of selling online were kind of crazy and almost like the wild west. It is hard to believe that 20 years have passed and now buying online is what everyone does, but it wasn’t always that way.
