One of my favourite elements of the entire floral aspect of a wedding is undoubtedly the consultation. Meeting with brides to be with future husbands in tow to discuss florals, venues, fabrics, colors, dresses and everything in between. With the 2015 wedding season well underway I have been fortunate to collaborate with brides on every spectrum of the scale. Here are a few concepts, designs and schemes that I am noticing on the horizon for this years wedding season.
Blushes, creams and gold bouquets have been adorned across Pinterest boards worldwide these past few years. While these colours continue to be a front runner, I’ve noticed brides requesting them to accompany richer hues. Elegant, classy and full-bodied blossoms can make stunning focal points or create a statement piece when used in mass. These colours play well with heartier options such as raspberries, chocolate, and shades of green.
Calling all Boho brides. Styles of bouquets have shifted. For years we were used to seeing the roundy moundy ball like handtieds. Garden varieties and airy styles are all the rage right now. The natural designs are mimicking a free flowing outdoorsy look. These bouquets are larger and wider in size. They are welcoming to natural elements such as twigs, vines & garden foliage.
Lets talk wearable flowers. The Flower Crown is making a comeback in a big way. Depending on the theme of your wedding, these can be delicate and subtle or a dominant statement piece. Brides, bridesmaids and flower girls are all getting in on this fun trend, which also include combs and clips.
Foliage is everything. Instead of having massed formed rose arrangements, we are welcoming large lush urns, garlands, & arches. Fresh from the garden foliage with blooms nestled amongst to compliment has become all the rage.
There is a growing popularity for trailing ribbons on bridal bouquets. Varying in widths, colours and multiple strands. Plant dyed, silk ribbon in particular is proving to be the most popular amongst brides.
