With florals featuring in all areas of design right now, it is not surprising that the face of the traditional wedding flowers has changed considerably. The trend for 2016 and beyond is about seeing the event location as one complete atmospheric space, rather than simply separate items on tables and in bouquets.
Cascading arrangements that flow from walls, staircases and windows are adding whimsy and romance; while vertical arrangements of greenery focus on being eco-friendly with clean, modern lines. Adding in pops of colour to vertical greenery is becoming a beautiful way to bring themes together.
Many brides and grooms are also looking to heirloom flowers of the past to bring a sense of nostalgia and style to their events. Hydrangeas, carnations and even baby’s breath are now being used in beautiful and modern ways.
How to choose your flowers:
Choose florals that speak of your love and your own personal style. Be creative with unusual varieties such as lotus, cabbage flowers or striking natives when you want to bring interest and make a statement.
Consider flowers that have important significance to you and your families. Perhaps include a flower from a special occasion you both shared and team it with Grandma’s favourite? Connecting families and experiences through florals is a beautiful way to personalise your event space.
Choosing flowers that are in season will ensure the availability of the best in quality and affordability. Teaming these with special accent blooms will keep the look personal but within a realistic budget.
Hold it or wear it?
Wearable florals are adorning wrists, décolletages and hair rather than traditional bouquets, offering adaptable and unique ways to keep florals as a central part of the day’s theme.
