2016 has brought us many beautiful wedding trends, and flowers have been no exception. The vintage and rustic feel has been with us for a few years now and isn’t going away anytime soon, but we are now seeing the flowers leaning a bit more towards an organic and sometimes woodland feel. Colours of white and green are very hot this year, as well as blush, but we are also seeing bold colours like deep red.
The wedding bouquet, a quintessential accessory for every bride. Lately we’ve seen many a bouquet loosely tied, with a variety of field flowers like astilbe, corn flower, and even some varieties of thistle. Matronly blooms such as peonies and dahlias are hugely popular, along with long trailing greens like jasmin and ferns. We are also seeing broad wide bouquets using an eclectic mix of blooms and greenstied off with a mix of long ribbons. I think it’s safe to say the traditional round bouquet of roses is long gone.
Mimicking the bouquets, centerpieces have become eclectic in style and are being designed with woodland and garden style accents like ferns, eucalyptus, and wildflowers. Old is new again using vintage style blooms like garden roses and lisianthus. We are also seeing an opulent use of greenery, especially as long trailing garlands running down the center of the tables.
Flowers are so beautiful, brides are using them everywhere they can! Swags of greenery and flowers on the backs of chairs, flower wall backdrops, and sprigs of greens like myrtle and Italian ruscus placed elegantly on the napkin’s place setting. These are just a few examples of how brides are tying in flowers to their wedding décor.
