This probably comes as no surprise, but a majority of weddings in the U.S. occur during the summer season, with June being among the most popular months every year. Of course, beautiful, warm and sunny weather certainly never hurt anyone's wedding ceremony! And because of the nicer weather during the summer months, many couples actually opt for outdoor weddings over this period of time, which can call for a varied selection of flowers that best accent your natural venue. So, let's run down some of the most popular flowers for summer weddings!

Dahlia: With its large variety of colors and sizes, the dahlia makes for a fantastic choice for your summer wedding arrangements. The dahlia is a showstopper in any arrangement due to its extravagant shape and eye-popping color.

Rose: No one should be shocked by the inclusion of the rose in this list, as it may well be the most popular flower in existence. The rose has long been a symbol for everlasting love and beauty, and it makes for a wonderful inclusion to any summer wedding bouquet. And while the classic red rose is likely the most well-known variety, the flower is also available in a handful of other colors that can better match the aesthetic of your outdoor wedding. No matter what, though, the rose will always be a standout in your summer wedding bouquet!

Hydrangea: Hydrangeas are not only a solid choice because they symbolize devotion, but because of their sizeable floral heads, which can be a highlight of beautiful color in any arrangement at your summer wedding. Hydrangea also come in a variety of colors, including pinks, purples and hues of blue that you can choose from to match your style.

Gerbera Daisy: Gerbera daisies are another amazing choice for your summer wedding bouquet, as they often add striking color to an arrangement. Gerbera daisies come in an almost never-ending array of colors, so you can easily choose the right ones to match your aesthetic.

Sunflower: You may not immediately think of sunflowers when imagining your summer wedding flower arrangement, but its large size and bright, colorful petals make for a striking focal point in any bouquet. The sunflower also symbolically fits the occasion, as they are often described as symbolizing loyalty and adoration. Pairing the sunflower with other colorful fillers can make for a unique and exceptional summer wedding bouquet.

Of course, these are just a handful of our favorite flowers for summer weddings, but there are so many other great options to choose from!
