Summertime's sunshine brings about some of the prettiest flowers around. So, it should come as no surprise that some of our favorite wedding bouquets were carried by summer brides. This season is also associated with bright, happy colors—another big win in the bridal clutch category. To see what we mean, check out the following slides, which showcase an array of amazing summer wedding bouquet ideas.

Ahead, you'll find arrangements featuring popular wedding flowers (plus a few unique ones) that are available in the summer. In-season varieties include everything from dahlias and zinnias to protea and clematis flowers. There are also tons of year-round staples—from roses to eucalyptus—featured here. When choosing your assortment, it's important to consider the weather this time of year. That's why we've spotlighted sturdy plants like succulents, too—they'll withstand the heat of the dog days.

You'll also find a whole bunch of definitively-summery colors, from sunshiny yellows and oranges to bright pinks and even blues. Get inspired by the diverse array of shades and how they're combined for bridal bouquets. We didn't limit our picks to "classic" summer hues, though. We've spotlighted how to pull of more creative choices, as well.

This poppy clutch with citrus accents exemplifies exactly what we're looking for in the perfect summer wedding bouquet. The Alicia K Designs arrangement had both seasonal flowers and seasonal colors. For more ideas as stunning and seasonally-appropriate as this one, click through the rest of our gallery. One thing's for sure: Each of these beautiful bouquets truly represents this unique time of year.
