Popular flowers and colours for July weddings

Wedding flowers Credit: www.saralejon.comWe asked florist Carole Patilla one of your questions.

Q – We’re getting married next July and are hoping to book our florist. What flowers and colours are popular at that time of year?

"July is when British grown flowers really hit their stride, so if you’re looking for seasonal blooms, there is a lovely variety to choose from. Most colour schemes are easy to accommodate, whether it’s a classic cream and blush or a festival wedding in bright jewel tones. One hue that can be a bit tricky is blue. Many flowers tend to be on the lilac spectrum rather than a true blue, but in July, you may be able to get blue Nigella (Love in a Mist) and agapanthus.

"In recent years, I’ve seen a resurgence of colourful weddings, but restrained pastels haven’t gone away either, so like every other aspect of your wedding, you’re free to do it your way.

"Sadly peony season will be over by July, but there are so many other options. British grown flowers naturally available include roses, snapdragons, sunflowers, cosmos daisies, dahlias in every shape and colour (except blue!), lavender, sweet peas, and this is just a fraction of the loveliness available. Any good florist can advise you on what will suit your style and colours. Don’t worry about being an expert on flowers - that’s what they’re there to help you with!"
