Statice is usually used as a filler flower but I think they are beautiful on their own also. You could experiment the look by trying out the combination of statice and other purple flowers or them alone.
Roses are available all year round and also known for being budget friendly. The commonly sold purple roses are a bit light in color so if you want a deeper shade of purple, they might cost you a bit more. For a summer purple bouquet, roses would go so beautiful with lilacs. Such a fragrant bouquet, I could imagine!
For a little bit higher price tag (however this is subjected to where you live, you might be able to get these flowers at a good price also!), there are also popular purple wedding flowers, such as: calla lily, orchid, lisianthus, lavender, iris, hydrangea, dahlia and freesia.
