A wedding is a joyful celebration. Preparing for the wedding, you need to arrange a venue, order food, choose music and decide on the flowers for the special day. You don't need to spend a fortune in order to have a beautiful floral bouquet or centrepieces for your tables. Summer flowers purchased from your local nursery or even grown in your own backyard can be equally appealing and just as stunning.

Dahlias and Baby's Breath
Dahlias come in a wide range of colours from bright yellows to vivid pinks and lavenders. The flower heads can be as large as a dinner plate and as small as a saucer. These flowers can be grown in abundance in most backyard gardens during the summer and are ideal for a summer wedding bouquet. Include sprigs of delicate baby's breath or gypsophila to the bouquet. These clusters of tiny white flowers grow on a long thin stem and add a bit of delicacy to your wedding arrangement.
Trumpet Lily and Astilbe
The Trumpet Lily has an exotic look and a wonderful scent. The lily comes in colours of white, orange, yellow, purple, red and pink and are trumpet-shaped with thick green stems. Create a monochromatic colour scheme for your wedding bouquet by using three or more large white lilies mixed with stems of the feathery white astilbe plant or add stems of lilac, white, pink or red astilbe for a complementary coloured bouquet.
Glads and Eucalyptus Leaves
Gladiolus (glads) are beautifully bold flowers that look perfect in tall vases as centrepieces on summer wedding tables. Because of its wide array of colours, you can match the flowers to most bridal wear. The funnel-shaped, fragrant flowers grow along a tall stem and you can place the flowers in a fan-shaped arrangement in a tall, clear, glass vase and add some greenery, such as eucalyptus leaves or ferns, to complete your arrangement.
Zinnias and Baby's Breath
Zinnias make lovely fresh cut flowers. They are usually deep, brilliant hues of red, orange, yellow, lilac and multicoloured and work equally well in table centrepieces as well as in bridal bouquets. Choose flowers with a single row of petals, the dome-shaped variety in solid colours, or have a mix of colours. Pair these flowers with baby's breath to create a colourful inexpensive summer wedding flower arrangement.
