Flower trends are difficult to define. Every wedding is so very different, as is every bride. They all have different, tastes, ideas and budgets but I do believe that floral trends are a lot like fashion trends and a lot of brides these days are becoming more adventurous, they will often do a lot of their own research before approaching florists with photos and ideas.
Brides are often looking for something different and unique to incorporate in their wedding bouquets. Suggestions include; unusual or ‘foraged’ foliage, herbs, dried materials, seed pods, feathers, a bouquet of just mixed foliage, or one large single bloom eg. a white king protea.
Roses are still a very popular choice of flower to incorporate in your wedding bouquet.
While we have a lot of requests for the ‘freshly-foraged’ style of bouquet where it is looser and unstructured we still get many requests for a more traditional style of look, which I believe will never really go out of style.
Something to consider when choosing the style is that you will be holding it for a long time so you really don’t want it to be too heavy and if it is too large it will also conceal a lot of the embellishments on your dress.
The shape of your bouquet has a big impact on the overall style of your wedding.
Generally speaking, a wild, unstructured or organic style of bouquet suit a boho or relaxed style of wedding, whist a rounded, dome or ‘ball’ shape suits a more formal style of wedding.
