It’s officially 2015! You’re wedding isn’t that far away—it’ll be here before you know it!—and you really need to decide what you’re going to do about flowers. There’s so many ways to decorate weddings with flowers and the array of colors are never in short supply. Maybe it would help you make a decision if you explored a few flower wedding trends for 2015.
In the past few months, floral halos have gained fame on social media and it’s anticipated that these floral halos will become even more popular during the new year. A pastel halo would be the perfect accent to your spring, summer or even fall wedding. As you select flowers for your crown, you should think about what you want your general wedding style to be. If you want to attract more attention to yourself, then flowers such as hydrangeas or roses will do the trick; however, if you prefer a delicate, more low-key flower halo, obtain smaller flowers such as baby’s breath or miniature flowers will create a beautiful headpiece as well.
Luxurious and Lavish Bouquets
2015 is slated to be the year that brides will go all out on lush bouquets—especially if they’re trying to create a celebrity-type wedding. Yet, if your wedding budget doesn’t allow you to spend much on flowers, you can still accomplish the same affect. One option is to use fluffy, grand flower blooms which will scream romance. Another great idea would be to select some high-end flowers for your bridal bouquet or include two or three of these flowers for all the bouquets. Several wonderful flower ideas to use for this lovely trend in soft pastels could be open roses, orchids, hydrangeas, peonies and hyacinths.
Centerpieces Fresh from the Garden
Here’s another trend that got its start last year and this easy-going, quaint trend is expected to gain in popularity throughout the spring and summer. Table centerpieces are created to appear somewhat wild and unorganized and have the feel of freshly-picked flowers from a garden. To achieve this look a supply of sweet peas, roses, tulips in addition to other mixed flowers are used. A splendid idea is to incorporate a small part of the season you’re getting married in; for example, for an autumn ceremony you could create centerpieces with orange, gold and red flowers intermingled with fall leaves and pinecones. A mixture of branches and ferns with brightly-colored flowers will make any centerpiece pop at a country wedding. Likewise, soft, pretty pastel colors for an English Garden wedding are sure to be all the rage this spring.
Whether your reception is outside or inside, utilize your location to your advantage and fill it with hanging flowers. For instance, if your ceremony is going to be outside and the area you’ve selected is breathtakingly beautiful, search for a central feature to intensify its beauty such as an arbor or tree; once you’ve found your focal point, hang garland or bottles filled with flowers from it. You can make these hanging flowers as elaborate—such as flower chandeliers for indoor nuptials—or as plain as you’d like.
Elegantly Clean Bouquets
If your special day is going to be more on the traditional side, stay with a clean arrangement for your bridal bouquet. The most favored colors will probably be cream and white; however, try having some fun with your bouquet by putting in some contemporary touches with vivid shades of red, orange or fuchsia. It doesn’t matter what your wedding colors are since there’s always an abundance of hues to choose from. It’s essential to go with one kind of flower such as roses or calla lilies so you don’t lose the simpleness but still create that wow-factor you desire.
Never be afraid to think “out of the box” when you’re considering flower designs for your big day. Anything is possible—your florist will be happy to create the arrangements you want to make your wedding as special as it can be.
