June is National Wedding Month, so named because across the United States, it is the most popular month for weddings. Planning a June wedding in Port Charlotte does require a little extra thought, as our weather can tend to be a bit warmer than in many places. With so many details to finalize and countless dreams to fulfill, you’ll want to be sure that you are making the choices that will make your day the best it can be. During the hot summer months – and in South Florida, most of the year – it is important to be practical about what will work best for your location and budget – while keeping your flowers and your guests cool and refreshed!
It’s Different Here: Although the rest of the country shies away from weddings in January and February, we have no problem planning a special day during these months. Actually, it’s usually perfect weather! The experts at Port Charlotte Florist love the vivid and colorful wedding trends – summer florals are making a real statement this season across the board, but vibrant color is always in style in South Florida. Arrangements reminiscent of wildflower bouquets often replace picture-perfect flowers; but whichever style you choose, it is important to include flowers that can withstand higher temperatures. Roses, calla lilies, orchids, mums, sunflowers and gerbera daisies all do well; and by placing them in a large container of water, you can prevent nearly all wilting from taking place.
Of course, when planning an outdoor wedding you may already be considering an early morning or evening event to stay out of direct sunlight. Tents, canopies and naturally shaded areas are always a good choice, just make sure there is room for everyone to comfortably get some shade. You’ll want to give your flowers the same consideration – in addition to lots of water, move them out of direct sunlight as soon as possible.
Here’s a Hint: Provide vases of water along the back of your venue for your bride and bridesmaids to keep their bouquets in between photo shoots and walks down the aisle.
