Wedding flower trends to consider for your big day

If you are planning your wedding this year, you will have quite a few things to consider. Apart from creating a guest list, picking a venue and deciding what will be on the menu, you will also need to choose the perfect wedding flowers. Here are some of the current floral trends to consider for your big day.

Bold colours

Many couples are choosing to go big and bold with their wedding flower choices this year. Warm pinks are especially popular and they can be perfectly contrasted by pure or off white and some lush greenery. Warm colours are excellent for the warmer months of the year and they are so romantic too. Consider pink roses, carnations and even gerbera daisies.

Earthy tones

If you prefer more understated wedding flowers, you could choose an earthy colour scheme instead. Some of the top colour choices include pale pastels like light pink or peach, off white, and dusty green foliage. If you are able to add some brown accessories here and there, this will also help emphasize the natural, earthy theme.

Rich in texture

Your wedding flower arrangements don’t need to be limited to fresh blooms. You can always include other elements like large ostrich feathers dyed to the appropriate colour or colours. You can include various types of materials include metal (like copper) and wood.

Remember, when you select wedding flowers, you will need to consider your table arrangements as well as your bouquets. Make sure that your florist designs something extra special for you to carry down the isle and pretty bouquets for all the bridesmaids too. You should also use similar or the same flowers to decorate your ceremony location as you do your reception area. You can even take some or all of your ceremony flowers to the reception for extra décor. Just make sure that you arrange this with somebody who is not a member of the wedding party.
