After nearly a year of cancelled events, the 2021 wedding season in proving to be busier than ever, combining two years into a single timeframe. Typically, nuptial celebrations take place between late spring through fall and peaks in the months of June, September and October. Now, it seems as though they are nearly ever weekend.
With all of the back-to-back ‘I dos’, flowers are the perfect accent to every outfit for everyone. They compliment colors, speak to our unique personalities, and can be exceptionally eye catching (but not more eye catching than the bride and groom, of course).
We’ve rounded up the perfect flowers to accentuate your wedding season outfit, based on color and style.
Deep and delicate
No matter what temperature or time of day, some of us live in darker hues. If your wedding season outfit consists of deep reds or purples, navy blues or richer greens, you’ll want floral accents that blend in while adding some flair.
Chocolate cosmos are a dark maroon color with a light, thin stem ideal for knotting together. Wear them as a simple flower crown, braided into your hair, or tucked behind the ear.
Black calla lily has a deep blackish-purple tone. Its trumpet like shape makes it stand out, an organic statement piece to any ensemble. The thick stem makes it ideal for pinning on clothes or placed in a button hole.
Burgundy peony, how we love thee. The plump, roundness of this flower is best suited for corsages or placed in a lapel.
In the summer months we live in pastels— especially when it comes to wedding season. Pastels are the perfect palette for an airy, lightweight aesthetic to any outfit. All three of these flowers complete any wedding season outfit as a single stem accenting a lapel, button hole, pinned, or tucked behind the ear.
Peach ranunculus is similar to a peony, and oftentimes confused, but we love it for its smaller, flatter bloom.
Blush peony can match any wedding season outfit and any color because of its light shade.
Blush garden rose is a timeless floral accent to wedding season.
For the formal venue that won’t soon be forgotten you’ll want a floral accent that will blossom into casual conversation.
The white rose, white lily, and white hydrangea are all breathtakingly simple flowers that will add a touch of style, without detracting from your already exquisite ensemble. Pin them or wear them on your wrist, you can’t go wrong.
Rustic and laid back weddings are here to stay with their understated beauty. But that doesn’t mean you can’t make your outfit stand out.
Feverfew has a strong stem that makes it an unmatchable hair accessory— reminisce of innocence.
Poppy is brightly colored with simple petals and a dark center. It’s well suited for flower crowns or tying together with other thin stemmed florals.
Blue delphinium possesses a gorgeous color will and tall, bountiful stem that will have everyone talking. It’s cascading design can be pinned as a single piece or even tied back in a pony, or half-pony, tail.

When it comes to choosing the perfect bouquet, or creating your own, freshness matters. You want your blossoms to last. That’s why it’s important to know what’s in season. Whether you’re planning a wedding, attending an event, or simply want a beautiful centerpiece to come home to, this summer pick the perfect flower for any room.
We love sunflowers and their association with the summer season. However, the sunflower’s wide, disk-like shape and sturdy stem make them difficult to pair with other florals, which is why we don’t use them a lot in our arrangements.
Simply put, they’re not as trendy anymore, and have more of a rustic vibe. As wedding season approaches, there’s been a decrease in interest from wedding parties to use the sunflower— which sets the tone for the floral industry. Brides are now leaning into more of a whimsical and romantic floral arrangement, full of pastel and neutral toned colors. That’s where the peony comes in.
When it comes to summer flowers, the peony is picturesque. Not only does everyone love it for its soft, pastel appearance but it looks gorgeous combined in any arrangement. Or it can be created as a bouquet on its own, surrounded by other peony stems that vary in length.
Our collection of peonies come in 7, 10, or 15 stems. As our favorite summer flower, we choose from our collection of Bellini, Coral Charm, Glow, Pinkredible or Resplendent. When it comes to the peony you really can’t go wrong (but we still recommend trusting us to help you).
Peonies, poppies, scabiosas, veronicas, delphiniums, geraniums, dahlias, clematis, black-eyed Susans, salvias, lavender, hydrangeas, zinnias, snapdragons, and cosmos— they’re all used in our arrangements. And it’s okay if you don’t know what all of them are— we are here to guide you.
What’s fun is that some of these summer flowers are easy to spot while walking around the New York/New Jersey area. Two that we mentioned are the hydrangea and cosmos.
Hydrangeas look like clusters of flowers grown together to form a ball shape. It’s often seen blossoming in whites, blues, and shades of pink surrounded by lush green leaves.
Cosmos are a daisy-like summer flower with yellow centers and a bowl-shaped head. It appears in shades of pinks and white.
Beyond the bouquet, we love it when we spot petunias or pansies. These two summer flowers beautify a landscape almost instantly.
Petunias are a trumpet-shaped flora that come in shades of reds, blues, purples, and pinks. Sometimes it grows as a solid color and other times it has an ombre, or dark to light (and vise versa) look.
Pansies are distinguished by their five overlapping petals. Their yellow spot in the center is typically surrounded by a two colored hue that ranges in colors from magentas, yellow, blues, and whites.
