Inspiration: Midsummer Wildflowers in Northern Minnesota

Posted by

Last week on a trip home to the Furey family cabin, I was delighted to find everything abloom (a very different landscape than northern Minnesota in January!). Pulling out the same trusty wildflower book I've been referring to since my single-digit years, I learned a bit more about some midsummer classics.

Minnesota wildflowers remind me of so many happy summers that I'm sure they will bring cheer and luck on my own wedding day.  (Particularly Buttercups- one of my all-time favorites.  They remind me of my Grandma Fran and the crowns she used to weave me from her backyard)

Depending on where you plan to get married, local wildflowers may be abundant along roadsides and behind the garage but absent from flower markets. Get inspired by what's growing wherever you are for gorgeous, meaningful (and free!) bouquets and arrangements.
