Flowers are so much more than simply part of the décor at a wedding. They can add a much-needed pop of colour – or bring a theme to life (quite literally). Here are some trends you need to see if you are short on inspiration.
Subtle posies are for your windowsill at home. These days, bouquets are bursting and exquisite and ‘bigger is better’ is definitely the general trend – that goes for ribbon too. Mostly though, these bouquets simply draw your eye towards your beautiful wedding dress.
All white flowers bring a touch of elegance to any wedding – whether you are doing a black tie dinner or a harvest-table country lunch. These flowers below would work perfectly for the latter, so just remember to choose flowers that will ‘match’ and enhance your décor.
Cascading bouquets are huge at the moment and draw all of the attention to you – especially if your wedding retinue goes for a slightly less lavish look. You can still keep costs down though… if you opt for greenery, instead of flowers, to make up the cascade.
Flowers in clashing colours are a fun, standout feature at any summer wedding. Fortunately, ‘feminine’ and ‘masculine’ colours sit comfortably together with the addition of a simple blue ribbon.
A ‘DIY messy bridal bouquet’ is gorgeous. At once elegant and unfussy, it works with just about any wedding theme. Choose one substantial bloom, such as a Protea, and build your bouquet around it. This is also a very hardy bouquet and will dry nicely as a keepsake after your big day.
A mix and match bouquet allows you to tie in with numerous colours in your décor scheme. By adding a succulent, it means that you can transfer this idea for wedding favours and corsages too.
Rich, deep hues, such as burgundy and berry, exude elegance and allow you to be flexible with colours. Opting for the underlying tones of colours means that these can be translated into ombre bridesmaids’ dresses. Gorgeous.
One bold pop of colour can be just as lovely. Add texture and interest by picking an array of beautiful blooms in the same hue.
A sunflower bouquet is a must for a country wedding. It is lovely in it’s simplicity and gives you the pop of colour that you are after, without trying too hard.
Berries, wild flowers and foliage are unexpected wow elements in your bridal bouquet. They are an easy way to add bulk, without spending a fortune. Plus, opting for unripe berries in pink and green hues allows you to tie in with just about any colour palette. A must for muted fans.
