Envision the large planters on either side of the wedding arch and altar filled with blush and cream-colored roses, jasmine tendrils filling the air with a sweet aroma. Now a splash of Alchemilla, apple-green flowers to make the ensemble pop.
Pachelbel’s Canon in D Major delicately floats into the ears of guests taking their seats. They stroll by the pretty vases along the aisle containing elegant Delphiniums extending majestically upward to the bright blue sky.
Accompanying the fauna are sprigs of Ammi majus, a cultivated version of cow parsley, and Alchemilla Mollis that adds a green sparkle for added texture. Now a dash of heuchera flowers, their bright pink spears gleaming in the sunlight.
The groomsmen follow next, each fashioning a muted pink-coral peony boutonnière against the black fabric of their tuxedos. They’ve taken their position and watch as the bridesmaids begin their entrance, stepping gracefully along the path in porcelain pink gowns.
Stunning cream-colored peony corsages framed by wisps of Gypsophila match their beaming smiles.
The music changes, the familiar tune resounding as the bride and her father enter the walkway, arm in arm, containing their emotions as they make their way to the altar.
The bride’s bouquet, held tenderly in front of her, ties in every color around it. It features cream-colored roses, delicate sprouts of lavender, a couple of moutan peony, featuring a soft but vibrant pink. Bells of Ireland, the muted-green shoots, frame the fauna, along with a splash of baby’s breath and sedum.
The father gives away the bride under the arch, and she takes the welcoming hands of her future husband, a beautiful sight to behold.
If a more simple decorating approach sounds appealing to you, worry no more. A tuft of pretty white Shasta daisies dancing in the breeze and mimicking the joy of the bride as she carries them to her destination offers carefree, innocent beauty.
Liatris, or pink sage, only available at this time, can add another splash of color to the natural, free-feeling arrangement, as well as Heliopsis, known as false sunflowers, small like daisies and contributing a spray of soft orange.
Beauty does not equal complicated.
Whichever your preferences, a June wedding gives you plenty of gorgeous flower selections to embellish your day.
