June is a month synonymous with romance and new beginnings, making it a popular choice for weddings. One of the most attractive aspects of a June wedding is the abundant selection of flowers in full bloom. If you’re planning a June wedding and looking for floral inspiration, this guide will help you explore some of the most stunning flowers available during this beautiful month. Let’s dive into the delightful world of garden roses, peonies, nigella, sunflowers, tanacetum, and astrantia.

1. Garden Roses

Garden roses are a timeless symbol of love and beauty. Unlike their more common counterparts, garden roses have a lush, ruffled appearance and a heady fragrance that can evoke a sense of nostalgia and romance. Available in a wide range of colours, from soft pastels to vibrant hues, they can fit any wedding palette. Their versatility makes them ideal for bouquets, centrepieces, and even as standalone arrangements.

2. Peonies

Peonies are the epitome of romance and elegance. With their large, fluffy blooms and intoxicating scent, they are a favourite for June brides. Peonies come in shades of white, pink, red, and even coral, providing a beautiful pop of colour. Their voluminous petals can make a bouquet look full and luxurious without needing many additional flowers. The peony season is short and of course, varies slightly from year to year which makes these blousy blooms even more special.

3. Nigella

Also known as “Love-in-a-Mist,” nigella is a delicate and whimsical flower. Its fine, feathery foliage and star-shaped blooms add an ethereal quality to floral arrangements. Nigella is available in shades of blue, white, and pink, making it a lovely addition to a soft, romantic wedding palette.  It may not be large and showy but It’s perfect for adding texture and a touch of whimsy to bouquets and centrepieces.

4. Sunflowers

For a touch of sunshine and a burst of colour, sunflowers are an excellent choice. These bright, cheerful flowers can bring warmth and happiness to your wedding decor. Sunflowers are particularly suited for rustic, country, or outdoor weddings. Their bold, yellow petals and sturdy stems make them perfect for creating striking arrangements that capture the essence of summer. Sunflowers are a popular choice for weddings, with brides and grooms often stating personal and sentimental reasons for their choice.

5. Tanacetum

Tanacetum, commonly known as feverfew, features small, daisy-like flowers that are hardier than they look! These delicate-looking blooms can add a touch of naivety and vintage charm to your wedding decor.  It brings memories of childhood and a wildflower look, perfect for outdoor weddings and dainty bud vases. Tanacetum is often used as a filler flower in bouquets and arrangements, complementing larger blooms and adding a soft, natural feel.

6. Astrantia

Astrantia, also known as “Starflower,” is a delicate and intricate flower that adds a unique touch to any arrangement. Its unusual star-shaped flowers and fine, textured petals make it a beautiful addition to designs.   Astrantia creates light and movement in both bouquets and centrepieces. Astrantia comes in shades of white, pink, and deep red, adding depth and variety to floral designs.  It’s my favourite!

Tips for Choosing Your June Wedding Flowers

  • Consider Your Colour Palette: Choose flowers that complement your wedding colours and overall theme. June offers a wide range of hues, so you can easily find blooms that match your vision, whether it’s delicate whites or a riot of colour.
  • Mix Textures and Sizes: Combine different textures and flower sizes to create visually interesting and dynamic arrangements.  Having flowers that step down in size always work to create a harmonious look.
  • Think Seasonally: Opt for flowers that are in season to ensure they are fresh, vibrant, and more affordable.  June is the best month for providing a huge flower choice!
  • Personal Preference: Ultimately, choose flowers that resonate with you and your partner. Your wedding day should reflect your personal tastes and love story.  Always go with what feels right to you. Although there are trends in wedding themes and styles, go with what you love – you’ll be remembering this day forever!


June weddings are blessed with an abundance of beautiful flowers that can make your special day even more magical. Whether you prefer the classic elegance of garden roses and peonies, the cheerful charm of sunflowers, or the delicate beauty of nigella, tanacetum, and astrantia, there’s something for every bride.
