Summer Poppy Wedding

It's difficult to plan a summer wedding and stay away from the generic beach themed reception. Take inspiration from other fantastic aspects about the summer to center your wedding theme around. You can also start your planning with an invitation that strikes your eye.

This Poppy Pocket Invitation by Birchcraft caught our eye and we thought it was great for a summer wedding. Poppies are a beautiful and full flower with rich color and a unique look. The invitation itself is also beautiful and a great option for wedding invitations because it holds all the wedding stationery in one place. This lovely claret red pocket invitation features a square tab on the front with your chosen names printed beneath a vibrant poppy flower. When opened, the pocket reveals your event details on a bright white invitation with a second claret poppy flower in the bottom left corner. Add your personalized text to complete the look. Complete the wedding suite with the response card, reception card, and directions card and you will have everything you need to have this wedding go without a hitch!


We like to keep the wedding plans simple and clean, and add splashes of poppy red here and there for a dramatic look. Create a chic chignon or bun and add beautiful silk flowers to complete your bridal look. Red Poppy Flower Hair Clips by BelleBlooms

Designing with poppies is also easy because of there shape and color. We love this simple bouquet with just red poppies and some silk ribbon to band them all in place in the wedding bouquet. Poppy Bouquet by RealWeddings.com

Wedding cakes can act as a blank canvas to enlist your creativity upon. We love the subtle pinks and oranges drawn from the poppy flower in an almost watercolor effect to give this wedding cake a very modern twist. It is understated yet elegant. Watercolor Poppy Wedding Cake via Pinterest
