Let the colors of summer inspire your wedding decor.

Many couples choose to get married in the bright, warm summer months. It’s a beautiful time of year and you have a good chance of great weather for outdoor nuptials. Get married by a lake or under the climbing roses of the Albuquerque Botanic Garden. The sun will smile on your wedding and your guests will enjoy the fresh air and beauty of your surroundings. Embrace the fun of the season with summer weddings ideas and tips from Peoples Flowers.

Seasonal Sensations
Summer evokes warm shades of yellow, orange and red. Use these cheerful colors to add spice to your ceremony. They can be reflected in the bridesmaids dresses, decorations, and floral arrangements. The abundant fruits and vegetables of the season can give you inspiration for food and cocktails for the reception.

A summer theme wedding might be your cup of tea. Beach and garden themes are fun and allow you to put your own unique stamp on the celebration. Think outside of the box with a desert theme wedding that embraces cacti and the rich reds and ochres of the New Mexico high desert. Use your imagination and tap into your creativity to personalize a summer wedding theme to fit you and your fiance.

Summer Blooms

Gerbera daisies

Use Gerbera daisies for a fun flair.

The flowers of summer are bright and memorable. These include lilies, roses, sunflowers and Gerbera daisies. Daisies can be either dainty or flashy, making them a versatile choice for any summer wedding. Check out examples of Peoples’ daisy arrangements with a peek at our delicate Dashing Daisies and vibrant Gotcha Gerberas.

You can really bring the feel of summer into your celebration with a collection of sunflowers. These make great centerpieces for tables and add a warm flair to accent arrangements at your wedding venue. Stop by any of our Albuquerque metro area locations to see our spectacular summer blooms in person and find inspiration for your own custom floral decor for your wedding.

Remember the Shade
Many couples choose summer weddings for the opportunity to have their ceremony outside. If you’re getting married in New Mexico, that means you may have to contend with high temperatures and the occasional monsoon rain. Don’t let the fickleness of the weather dissuade you from your dream wedding.

You might want to choose a venue that also offers a shaded or rain-protective place to exchange vows should the weather get fussy. Provide guests with parasols or umbrellas to ward against sun or showers. Have lots of cold liquids available to keep everyone hydrated and happy. Lemonade is a refreshing option.

So much planning goes into a wedding. You have to choose a location, set a date, decide on a cake, try on gowns, fill out the guest list, plan the reception and select the flowers. Whew! That can seem overwhelming, but you there are lots of people ready to give you a hand with the planning. When it comes to floral design, Peoples is your wedding partner. Check out some wedding flower ideas to spark your creativity.

Get Colorful
White is the traditional color for weddings, but many modern weddings step outside that palette and into an exuberant array of other colors. Is red your favorite color? Play with bringing shades of red together and consider unusual wedding flowers like daisies or carnations for their bright exuberance. Pink is a very trendy color to consider. Think about coordinating your flower choices with the color of your wedding gown or with the bridesmaids’ dresses.

Creative Containers
Add some flair to your arrangements with creative vases. If you enjoy the thrill of the hunt, browse thrift stores and garage sales for unusual, antique or colorful containers that can double as vases, whether for large arrangements or for holding bouquets on tables at the reception. Look for old blue glass bottles, painted pitchers or vintage champagne glasses. Mix and match and be playful!

Flowers in Unusual Places
Flowers bring a special flair and beauty to any setting. Arrange roses around the cake on the table. Hang orb-shaped arrangements from the ceiling for an ethereal fairy-tale look. Flowers can be strung together and suspended in doorways or on walls. Decorate for an outdoor wedding with garlands of your favorite flowers, hung from trees or poles. Continue the floral theme with edible flowers as garnish for salads.
