Tuesday, June 5, 2012
The unusual warmth has made any semblance of spring come and go and we appear to have gone right into summer, so it may seem like planning for your 2013 spring/summer wedding florals may need to be tweaked a little bit to accommodate what's in season.
Luckily, there are lots of flowers that can be used through the seasons to work with your vision. Here are some of our favorite summer and fall florals from Enchanted Florist that will fit any floral fancy, whether it's pastel and angelic, or bold and colorful.

Fortunately flowers like roses, hydrangeas, mums, and daisies can be easily bought practically year-round (pictured below). They come in a huge array of colors and can be combined for different types of looks. Use certain colors as striking contrasts or go with soft whites and pastels. Enchanted Florist works with their brides to build the perfect centerpiece or bouquet.
For this wedding, the bride and groom's signature color was robin's egg blue which came from the blue hydrangeas. (Photos by The Collection)

Enchanted Florist: "Contrasting colorful flowers with unusual accents like dried wheat, crystal details, or feathers can dramatically change the end result so don’t feel limited by particular seasons. Many of the bouquets featured below use common flowers like roses and gerbera daisies that are reasonable priced and available all year round. Opting for a strong color palette quickly takes basic to bold and just might be the wow factor your wedding needs."

Enchanted Florist: "Purple has long been associated with royalty and what better day, than your wedding day to be treated like royalty? While this color is trendy among our 2012 brides, we have long been in love with the endless shades of purple blooms. Opt for a deep plums or eggplant purple if sexy drama is part of your wedding day vision. Brides wanting sweet and romantic should consider soft shades like lavender, perfect for a springtime garden wedding."
