Once you've ticked off your venue, and your wedding dress from the list of a billion things that need to be planned for your Wedding. Consider bringing your wedding Flowers to the top of your to-do list (who want's to look at seating charts anyway?).
We've got some popular floral trends coming your way to consider for your upcoming wedding.
Picking the right floral arrangements can be tricky, so we've been keeping up with the top trends and key tips to keep in mind when deciding which blooms will accompany you down the aisle next year.
Keep an eye on the tips below to consider for your big-day!
Hang a trail
Trailing or hanging flowers from the ceiling have started to become very popular. This brings in a sense of intimacy or adds colour to the venue, making the wedding venue feel alive, as if you are dining under a hanging garden.
Tip: When first deciding on flowers, try to choose flowers that are in season (don't forget to ask!).
Go beyond the norm
A trend we've seen popping up is using garlands of flowers outside of the centre table, a nice way to enclose the area in which the wedding is sitting. Trailing blooms along and off the end of tables onto the floor also helps create gorgeous artistic colour and flair.
Note: Heat and location play a big part in how long the flowers will remain fresh and beautiful, we will take this into consideration as a florist, but you'll need to help us along the way with the choices of Flowers you want to bring into the mix. Petite bouquets
Instead of taking over or competing, smaller bouquets with fuller and more selected flowers ultimately complement the dress and surrounding arrangements. Often these bouquets with their smaller size in nature allow for a more refined look, providing often needed textures to the overall wedding look.
Tip: If it's hotter than expected and bouquets have to be looking perfect, make sure to have a spare bouquet waiting in a safe and cool place to be exchanged for freshness.
Add a touch of sparkle
Lots of little vases with loads of tea-light candles to fill the centre of tables with specimen blooms are a great trick. This is an effective and economical way to create a very pretty, romantic aesthetic. Another trick we've been seeing lately is adding LED string lights either around, or within the Flower Arrangements.
Tip: Consider placing vases of water at the reception on the bridal table. This is a great way to enhance the decoration once all the bridal party place them into water on arrival.
"Deep rich berry tones have started to be included with white flowers to add some depth and colour to the mood of the room."
Tip: Be sure to allocate a responsible relative/friend make sure the grooms party have all their buttonholes on evenly and straight. We always suggest considering one or two spares as they can sometimes get damaged after the ceremony and might need to be swapped over.
Flowers in her hair
Flowers around the neckline and trailing from the hair. There is more adventure taken when a bride decides to add flowers to her beauty look.
Tip: Always look at yourself and your bridesmaids in the mirror whilst holding your bouquets before you leave for the ceremony to establish a comfortable and attractive position for the bouquets. Always keep the pins towards to the body.
