Summer is coming, and that means gardens bursting with beautiful flowers. With the popularity of rustic and boho wedding styles, bold and bright bouquets and arrangements that look like they were just gathered in from the garden have become very popular. However, just as it is in makeup, it takes a lot of effort to look as if there was no effort at all. (Which is why you need a great florist like Bella Flowers!)  The results, however, are worth it. Bright garden flowers, lots of assorted greenery, and an organic, rather than rigidly symmetrical shape are the hallmarks of this style. Fruits, berries, interesting containers, and long, trailing ribbon ties are frequent accompaniments.

Brightly colored dinner plate-sized dahlias are one of the stars of the summer garden, and a couple of them, mixed with spray roses, make a bold and spectacular bridal bouquet when mixed with spray roses and other small garden flowers.

Smaller dahlias are just as striking in a mix of complimentary colors.

Other brightly colored summer flowers include poppies, delphinium, and, of course, the ever-popular wedding classics: peonies and roses.

Gorgeously bright orange poppies tied with fashionably trailing ribbons:

If you have your heart set on blue flowers, tall, showy delphiniums are for you.

Blowsy, ruffled peonies are a classic garden flower, as well as a beloved wedding classic. The mixture of different trailing ribbons and the loosely gathered arrangement creates the informal style.

This bold and bright style isn’t just for bouquets, it works wonderfully in centerpieces and other container arrangements.

This arrangement consists of white and other pale flowers, but the liberal use of greenery makes it appear nearly as bright as some of the more tropically hued arrangements.
