A Bright Summer Bridal Bouquet Recipe | Calie Rose

We get almost weekly inquires on this bouquet that was featured on Style Me Pretty from some years ago so we thought it’s time to answer many of the questions we get on this bright, summer wedding bouquet in this post! 1) What flowers did we use to design this bouquet? Clematis vines, Juliet English Garden Roses, Coral Charm Peonies {our favorite!}, stock, clematis vines, queen anne’s lace, Ilse spray roses, hypericum berries, and mock orange blossoms. 2) If the blooms are off season where I’m getting married {many of you brides or florists that contact us are in other parts of the country and getting married during the non-summer season} what can we use for similar substitutes? It depends on the season and what’s available. Your wedding florist should be able to make some great recommendations. Stock, hypericum berries, Juliet English Garden roses, Ilse spray roses, and queen anne’s lace should be available year round. Clematis vines have many similar substitutes such as southern smilax vine, jasmine vine, honeysuckle vine, and italian ruscus-it has a bit of a different shape but could still work. Coral Charm peonies are in their peak May and June though depending on the grower and what parts of the world they are sourced, I’ve seen them available in April, October, November, and December. David Austin has a lovely english garden rose called Romantic Antique that we like to substitute in place of the Coral Charm peonies if they are unavailable. Mock Orange blossoms can be substituted for any white spring blooming branch such as cherry blossoms, pear blossoms, flowering dogwood, etc. Winter time I’d recommend white hellebores flowers or even astilbe, and Fall can get a bit tricky but veronica, snap dragons, or stock could create a similar feel!
