Summer weddings are synonymous with bright colors that vividly express the cheerfulness of the season. This year, the citrus color trend takes center stage for weddings, featuring shades of green, lime, orange, and yellowish, paired with neutral-colored roses. Alexandra Farms' collection of garden roses is perfectly suited to fit this trend, and most importantly, start boasting the colors of summer which are coming in strong.

Prolific bouquets, arrangements, centerpieces, and wedding decor adorned with garden roses such as Rose Catalina featuring a lemon-yellow color, Rose Sunset, boasting an orange color, Rose Princess Midori Spr in green, and Rose Effie (Ausgray), showcasing a lovely yellow color can infuse weddings with a tropical, summery feel. Fresh and lush — two characteristics that are expressed by these spectacular flowers.

2. Bold Colors as the Main Character of Table Centers and Bouquets

Bold, statement-making colors are also bound to steal the show as couples opt for eye-catching table centerpieces and bouquets. Garden roses, with their large head size, infinite petals, and rich shades serve as the perfect focal point at weddings. Picture tables adorned with arrangements featuring bright red, orange, and bright pink garden roses accompanied by greens and a few extra filler flowers. Or picture a bride holding a spectacular wedding bouquet with deep red tonalities.

Many brides opt for neutral colors for their weddings because they look more classic to their eyes and colors may be easier to combine as well. These colors' understated softness and grace add a touch of romance to the arches, building up the romantic atmosphere of the moment.
