Little compares to the excitement of your upcoming wedding day. The planning and preparations signal the promise of wonderful things to come. Part of this expression is the mood that is set by the floral arrangements you choose for your special day. Here’s the latest in wedding trends for flowers to help you create an atmosphere that captures your personality as a couple.
Look at what’s in season
Seasonal flowers and plants can have a particular sense of fittingness about them. They are a great way to really enhance the sense of time and place in your wedding celebrations. Fortunately at this time of year there is plenty to choose from.
Creating the right atmosphere
Floral arrangements can be grand and dramatic, colourful and sweet, natural and romantic. Flowers on mass are popular at the moment, as are rambling, natural looking arrangements, often with a single, unusual standout bloom. Branches and leaves can create sculptural effects, mini potted plants and succulents can add an unexpected element.
Plants that tell your story
Perhaps there are flowers that have particular meaning for you and your partner. Including these in your wedding bouquet and floral arrangements will make them deeply personal and add to the special memories of your day.
Current wedding trends have seen an abundant and playful mixing up of the centerpieces. Pick a colour palette and mix together a whole range of flowers and leaves. Some current favourites are peonies, magnolia branches, tulips, camellias, orchids, begonias, hydrangeas and anemones. Whites and off whites are popular choices for colour palettes this season, and roses never go out of fashion.
Go for the unexpected
Stretch the boundaries of the traditional floral centerpiece with the unexpected. Spice things up with unusual additions; branches bearing fruit, vegetables that can add both colour and texture, leaves for sculptural effects, or a bright scattering of berries. You might like to bring in the hint of an Australian theme with beautiful plants like Waratahs, scented Eucalyptus leaves, the striking Kangaroo Paw, or branches of wattle with their delicate sprays of flowers.
