Roses and dahlias (mmmm, dahlias!) might work!

I’m pretty sure lisianthus will be blooming in August but I’m not sure how expensive they tend to be.   

Statice would be another one to look at.  It’s not a large flower but it’s cheaper and it holds up very well in bouquets. 

This website lists some popular wedding flowers by season (one of the biggest ways to keep the floral bill down). 

And I will add that Freesia smells amazing! 

Edited to add: I’ll be using dahlias but my wedding’s not until mid-September.  I’m not sure how reliably you’d be able to get them in August.  They also have a rather short vase life so talk to your florist before you get your heart set on them.

Just adding anemones to the list.  They aren’t huge like hydrangea, but maybe if you mixed with carnations, it would work.  I love anemones.

Some of the ones used for my wedding were lisianthus & iris… I’m not sure if iris would be in season, but I was lucky that it was in April since it’s one of my favorites!

Try looking into ranunculus. They come in a Telecote Purple and are very full! I love them!
