Some of our all-time favorite flowers are in season during the summer: Peonies, hydrangeas, dahlias, and more! It's no wonder, then, that summer wedding bouquets are among the most stunning of all. We asked our fabulous Facebook followers to share photos of their summer wedding bouquets, and it was almost impossible to narrow down the submissions to our five favorites. Thanks to these photos, we may never run out of inspiration for beautiful, summery wedding flowers.
One of our all-time favorites is the vibrant bouquet seen above, which bride Calonda Henry shared with us. We love how the subdued dusty millers play off of the blooms' bright colors.

This romantic arrangement, shared by bride Ashlee Hietanen, shows how soft peonies look before the reach peak bloom. Their pale pink hue mixes well with the other flowers and the overall look is lovely for a garden wedding.

Rosehip Social in Brooklyn arranged this bouquet for bride Allyson Pace. The deep purple succulents are very heat-friendly, while the mix of anemones, greenery, and roses feel eclectic enough for a bohemian wedding. To top it off, Allyson wrapped the flowers with part of other mother's and grandmother's wedding dresses, a great idea for a wedding in any season!

Bride Viry Arellano carried this colorful bouquet on her wedding day. It perfectly captures the sun-dappled scenery that is a trademark of summer months, and we love the mixture of classic flowers like daisies, roses, and greenery.
