Today’s trends are easy to adapt and make your own- whether you’re a bodly bohemian bride or you’re trying to knot with a chic traditional ceremony, your posies will look perfect!
When you’re choosing your florist, it’s a good idea to meet with approximately three florists to compare their pricing, style, and if they’re a good personality fit. Ask your wedding and reception venue if they have anyone they would recommend and take referrals from family and friends, especially if you liked the flowers at their recent nuptials! Focus on learning about your florist’s services and approach- be sure to ask for their wedding portfolio.
Once you’ve settled on “the one”, make the most of your appointments! Make sure to bring fabric swatches of the bridal party’s dresses, pictures of your dress and the venue, and some ideas that you love. Come with an open mind; like all wedding vendors, these specialists understand how to create the show stopping look you want while staying within your budget. They’ll also have great suggestions for flower pairings, be able to recommend blooms that are in season (or look so fabulous you won’t care that they’re out of season), and present a few amazing design ideas for you!
Wondering what we’re saving in our inspiration file? Here are our favorites
Loose and Unruly: Both bouquets and arrangements are saying goodbye to tight, traditional shapes in favor of organic shapes bursting with beautiful blooms! Greenery, branches and ferns add interesting texture and volume that compliments this perfectly imperfect vibe.
Freshly Picked: Consider featuring local, in season flowers for an English- garden inspired look that is both beautiful and environmentally friendly.
Traditional Favorites: Flowers like carnations and chrysanthemums have often been eschewed as overused but they’ve made a comeback thanks to the beautiful heirloom varietals cultivated by independent flower forms.
Vases with personality: Gather your flowers and greenery in unique containers! Add a bit of glimmer with mercury glass and antique cut glass vases or embrace the shine with metal containers in rose gold, copper, silver, or gold. Embrace interesting shapes too: geometric pots, are a great way to spice up your arrangements without distracting from your florals.
Creative Centerpieces: Think beyond simple arrangements on round tables; get creative with opportunities offered by long Kings Tables or add variety with multiple arrangements in different complimentary styles. Consider one large centerpiece paired with smaller complementary arrangements on large tables or a family of smaller arrangements.
Sweet Succulents: Succulents are a lovely option for adding a soft greenery to your table; plus if they’re potted individually, they make thoughtful wedding favors.
Beautiful backdrops: Create a eye catching backdrop for your ceremony with a flower wall or garland covered gazeebo. While luxurious Pinterest worthy flower walls can be expensive, you can get a similar look by incorporating vines and greenery with the blossoms.
Go green: Looking for unique alternative for your florals? Ditch the flowers! Consider embracing trees, succulents, ferns, and other greenery for décor that is full of texture and personality
