How To Use Flowers in June Wedding Themes
So you’re having a June wedding? That’s something to be happy about. June is considered as a lucky month to get married. Why this is so, nobody really knows. But what we do know is this: June weddings are made even more beautiful with the right selection on flowers. Using flowers for your June wedding is discussed in more detail below.
Roses are red
Rose is the traditional birth flower for June. And the fact that rose is the ultimate symbol of love and devotion, it’s perfect to use for your June wedding. Roses come in various colors. Each of these colors represents a specific meaning. And you have to know about this so you can choose accordingly. Red is the symbol of true love, respect and beauty. Lavender stands for enchantment, and pale pink means grace and joy. Thornless or de-thorned roses are not only more convenient to hold, they also denote love at first sight.
Seasonal flowers in bloom
Another thing to love about your June wedding is that many flowers spring forth during this month. This means that your choice isn’t only limited to roses. If you want something that’s a little bit different, go for other flowers that are in season. A good example is the sleek and tall calla lily that’s perfect for any contemporary wedding. You’ll also adore tuberose, baby’s breath and larkspur that look sophisticated when bundled all together. Don’t forget about hydrangeas, which can make a strong statement even with a single stem.
Flowers on your hair and in other places
After you’ve decided what flowers you want to have for your June wedding, the next step is to figure out where you’re going to put them. Using flowers as headpiece is always a great idea, particularly if you’re having an outdoor wedding. Of course, the bouquet is filled with flower blooms, and so are the boutonnieres and corsages. Don’t rely on just flowers though. Incorporate twigs, branches, foliage and other elements into the floral decorations to give way to variety and creativity.
What about wilting and drying?
Beating the heat is one of your prime duties for your June wedding. Sure, the lovely sunshine brings an abundance of blossoms. But at the same time, it can also cause flowers to wilt and dry before the ceremony. Watering and caring for the flowers to be used in your wedding is a must. You should put them under the care of an efficient florist. It’s also smart to stay away from flowers that easily sag under direct sunlight exposure such as tulips and hyacinths. Wilt-resistant blooms include daisies, roses, geraniums and carnations.
Take care of your budget well
As you probably know already, flowers can get quite expensive. It’s best to set a budget for your flowers and stick to it. Ideally, flowers should only be five to eight percent of your total wedding budget. To save money on the flowers, buy seasonal flowers as these are less expensive than imported ones.
