Wedding Floral Designs

August 1, 2016

Wedding trends are always popular, and I wouldn’t be a good designer if I didn’t keep up with the new colors and styles that are constantly popping up in stores, magazines and of course all over the internet. But, what is most important to me to ensure an excellent design, is to listen to my clients wants and needs first.

This year I’m seeing a shift in wedding trends when it comes to floral design. The rustic, mason jar look seems to be going away and is being replaced with a more traditional and vintage appearance.

Roses, hydrangeas and peonies are still the most popular flowers, but now they are being mixed with lots of lush wild flowers and greenery. Arrangements and bouquets are coming out more loose and airy with complimenting colors tying the beauty of all the different flowers and accents together. Blush remains to be one of the most popular colors but I’ve had a variety of requests for different contrasting colors and flowers, which opens up the door for the most unique and custom designs.

Some of my favorite things this year has been warm and inviting arrangements that incorporate unique lighting, such as lanterns and string lights. I’m also excited to see faux candles becoming more popular, mostly since they are a non-fire hazard and the newer ones flicker just like the real ones, emitting the same warm and welcoming glow candles have always provided.

Matte metallic colors are becoming very popular as a bold accent with gold and mercury glass seeming to be the most popular, but I’ve seen interest in silver, bronze and copper as well. As long as it has a vintage or traditional look it will turn heads.

Floral arrangements aren’t just for flowers anymore. I’ve been seeing a lot of succulents, berries, wild flowers, greenery and even herbs all joined together to create beautiful accents for any wedding.

Since purple is my favorite color I’m always thrilled when a bride tells me that purple is one of her colors. It will be a sad day for me when purple stops being a popular color.

In the blue family I have seen more teals becoming popular but I’ve also had requests for lighter blues in the spring and darker blues in the summer and fall.

We all know that red is the official representative for the color of love, so red and white weddings have always been a popular classic. Red provides an amazing, bold pop of color, especially when parred with white.
