What's Hot in Wedding Flowers and Decorations

Floral Trends
Today’s brides are following the old adages, “less is more” and “use your imagination” The sayings may be cliche – but the latest trends in wedding flowers are anything but.

Daring Colors
Gone are the days of adhering to light pastels and muted shades in wedding decorations, obviously. Today’s brides are opting for bold and interesting pairings of colors in their wedding flowers and floral schemes. Not afraid of mixing purples and orange’s, or multiple shades of one color, the modern color palette is expanding.  Read more on choosing your wedding colors.

More than just Flowers
Mix it up a bit by incorporating produce. One of the hot trends in wedding flowers is arrangements featuring fruits, herbs and even veggies as a playful and fun approach. Their naturally vibrant colors coincide with the daring color trend. Many brides are also turning to the woods for inspiration. Green grasses add dimension and structure and can elicit a warm, summery feeling. Feathers, bird nests and twigs can bring an earthy, ethereal feel to your décor. This list of unique wedding decorations has even more blossom-free arrangement ideas.

Adding peacock feathers gives this bouquet an ethereal feel.

Dynamic Tables
Table arrangements are also becoming more dynamic. Instead of conforming to identical floral arrangements on each table, some brides are using different containers, varying the heights, or grouping an assortment of low centerpieces together.

Keep it Simple
Gone are the days of overpowering floral arrangements adorned with excess filler flowers. Today’s brides opt for a more natural and tailored look to their wedding flowers. One bouquet style rising in popularity is the hand tied bouquet. The fresh bunch of flowers presents the look of simple elegance that brides desire.
