This is the throwback flower you’re about to see at *every* summer wedding

Most people associate carnations with old-fashioned prom corsages and boutonnieres. But the carnation is making a serious comeback this spring, so if you’ve been invited to a wedding this summer, expect to see some colorful blooms on your table (or maybe even in the bouquet). Carnations are affordable, too, which is likely one of the reasons they’ve earned themselves a reputation for being less cool or classy than other flowers. But carnations are beautiful! And they come in SO. MANY. COLORS. Which means there are so many options for making arrangements, bouquets, or perking up your living room with a tiny vase of carnations.
