The 6 best blooms for August weddings

09 August 2021

What we love as wedding florists is how unique each couple is getting married. You all have your own style, favourite colours and flowers, personality and ideas for how you want your wedding to look. Which gives the Feehily's Florist team the exciting challenge of making your dreams come true! We are also here to give you valuable guidance about flowers - seasonality and availabilty, scents, what will suit your venue and working to your budget.

If you are planning your wedding day and set the date for August, then read on for 6 of the best flowers for an August wedding!

#6 Bold Hydrangea

A large head full of lots of little petals, the Hydrangea is a distinctive flower to make a statement. Available in shades of white, pink, blue, purple and green which gives lots of flexibility to suit any wedding style or theme. If you are thinking about floral installations such as romantic flower arch for your ceremony or Instagram worthy flower wall, then hydrangeas mixed with seasonal foliage are a great idea, as the size means they don’t get lost and create the impact you want. 

#5 Classic Rose

The beautiful rose, perhaps the most popular wedding flower and our Feehily’s Brides go wild for them! Available in so many shades and varieties to suit different styles, but for us nothing can beat the classic pretty pastel pinks and cream roses. For Summer weddings, English Garden roses add a seasonal touch that work perfectly in bridal bouquets, venue floral displays or like below, ceremony decorations for that extra special detail.

#4 Trendy Gyp

While these petite, wispy blossoms are often thought as additions to a bouquet, they look striking on their own too. We love a Gypsophila (or babys breathe as its also know) as a bridesmaid bouquet, and then adding a dash to the brides bouquet to tie the look all together - take a peek at a wedding we have done before where this looks FAB.

#3 Tropical Orchids

Stylish and elegant, with a twist of tropical, we adore Orchids for summer weddings. They make great statement flowers alone for boutonnaiere for the grooms men and corsages for mother of the bride - and not forgetting the bride, Orchids create stunning cascading shower bridal bouquets.

#2 Cute Carnations

These fab flowers have made a come back! Fluffy petals in ripple effect create a really pretty look, especially when mixed in with other statement flowers. We loved this wedding vase display created for one of our most popular wedding venues which could be made to incorporate carnations - the stunning and magical Markree Castle in Sligo.

#1 Happy Sunflowers

Big, bold and beautiful is the best way to describe the sunflower. The ultimate August wedding flower, as sunflowers are so seasonal to this month and add a really stylish Summer feel to your big day. These statement flowers look perfect for rustic or outdoor weddings, especially when combined with purples and pinks for a tropical vibe.
