If you're having a summer wedding, you're definitely choosing a prime time for flowers. Those blooms are some of the most lush and beautiful of the year! However, flowers are one of the biggest (and most surprising) expenses to any wedding (if you're choosing to have them—hey, non-floral decor can be cool too!).
One of the most reliable ways to save money and get more bang for your buck when it comes to wedding flowers is to have your florist only use flowers and greenery that are in season. Using flowers that are out of season means that you're importing flowers, which greatly adds to the cost—plus, if you're getting hothouse blooms, they're just not going to be quite as lovely. We know, we know, you want big, beautiful fluffy peonies everywhere, but if you're getting married in the dead of winter, that probably isn't the best choice. Bummer. But hey, we're getting ahead of ourselves—this is about flowers that are in season in July, not January! July isn't prime peony time, but it's a beautiful month for blooms nonetheless!
This beautiful summer month is bursting with exotic tropical flowers and hardy wildflower blooms, from orchids to cornflower. So what other flowers are in season in July, you're asking? Here are 15 of our favorite summer flowers perfect for your July wedding.
