Do zinnias flower uninterrupted?

I'm growing multiple varieties for an August 1st wedding.

The varieties include:

Benary Giant, Salmon Rose (hazzards): These are about 6 inches high with buds just beginning to form. Smaller than a pea

Gigantica, bright pink and white (hazzards): The white ones are in the same boat as the Benary, the bright pink has already flowered! My mom started one plant in the basement and it has 8 buds forming already.

Lilliput, white gem (hazzards): these were transplanted the same time as the Benary Giants, they are about half the size but have larger flower buds forming. About the size of a pea.

Envy (burpee)

Northern Lights mix (botanical interests)

My question is, now that the one has flowered it looks like the next flowers are still a while out.

Will the other plants that haven't flowered yet be going strong by August first? If they flower by the third/fourth week in August will more flowers arrive in time?

I can post pictures if that would help, not home right now but I will be shortly =D

Happy 4th!

Once they get going, they will pump out the bloom continuously. If you see flower buds already, I don't see why they wouldn't bloom at the beginning of August, which is 4 weeks away, that's plenty of time.
