For summer 2023, wedding bouquet trends are set to be bold, beautiful and big budget. We’re talking huge effervescent roses in a mouth-watering palette of sherbet shades alongside delicate seasonal blooms and swathes of plant-dyed trailing silk ribbons. What could be more gorgeous?
We’re excited for the vibrant colours and extravagant designs set to hit the wedding scene, particularly when it comes to bridal bouquets. Read on for our pick of summer wedding bouquets to inspire your own spin on wedding flower trends this summer.
Ivory and yellow summer wedding bouquet
Ivory and butter yellow is a beautiful and surprisingly under-used wedding colour palette that we see being fully embraced this summer. Reminiscent of milk and honey, it is a soft and elegant choice that looks perfect in the golden glow of summer. David Austin offers a gorgeous array of fluffy scented roses to achieve this look, including our white collection and three yellow beauties – Beatrice, Effie and Edith – which range in tone from creamy blonde to rich amber.
Blue and yellow summer wedding bouquet
If you want a classic floral colour scheme that truly represents spring and summer, yellow, blue and white is a fail-safe choice. Joyful and fresh, this colour scheme works with any wedding style whether you prefer modern or bohemian, traditional or rustic. Yellow is such an eye-catching statement that you can work in just a small pop of colour with a few well-placed blooms if you’re not sold on the idea of carrying an entirely yellow bouquet. Here we’ve used yellow butterfly ranunculus and our golden-coloured rose, Beatrice adding warmth to the ivory tones of Leonora, Eugenie and Purity within this gorgeous summer bridal bouquet.
Vibrant orange and pink wedding bouquet
As the temperature rises in the height of summer, we love to see clashing brights like yellow, orange, coral and hot pink. Mix and match roses like Capability with Beatrice and Edith for an eye-catching summer bouquet that’s sure to make a statement. Or pick a bright focus rose and soften the look with supporting flowers in more muted tones. Your florist can create a structured look if you’re going for an elegant classic wedding, or a looser freeform design for a touch of bohemian luxe.
Pink ombre wedding bouquet
What could be more romantic than walking down the aisle to meet your beau carrying a dreamy bouquet of ombre pink roses? From our palest blush roses like Eugenie, Purity and Keira to the watercolour tones of Constance and pillowy candy-pink Miranda, the fluttering petals, delicate hues and heavenly scents combine to make a bouquet fit for a modern fairy-tale. For your bridesmaids, go for a pretty tonal look with different pink floral print dresses or choose a contrasting colour like green, blue or navy for a more vivid look.
