In Season Now: Foxgloves


Many brides love foxgloves for their enchanting, bell-shaped blossoms — they begin to bloom at the start of summer and come in the prettiest colors, from bright pink, coral, and purple to more subtle shades of apricot, peach, and cream. The tall, bell-shaped flowers tend to face upwards, revealing their charming speckled throats. Here are some of our favorite wedding arrangements incorporating this unique, whimsical early-summer flower.
