The last two years have brought many changes to the flower industry. It is now more important than ever to be very intentional about flower choices for weddings. You will want to work closely with a florist and start your planning early to ensure you have the exact floral look you are going for and that you receive your wedding flower arrangements on time. Let’s take a look at some summer wedding flower trends to get your creative juices flowing.
No Fear of Color
There will always be brides who go for the muted look, but more and more couples are opting for bright and bold this year. Part of this is due to the fact that more and more brides are looking to other cultures for wedding ideas. Many cultures use very bright, exotic flowers in celebrations such as weddings. It is okay to let your imagination run wild with the color scheme.
Tapping Into Texture
Another shift is in the trending appeal of mixing and matching different types of blooms to create a rich texture. A wide variety of blooms makes for an interesting backdrop for your special day. Another reason this is a good idea is because of the recent flower shortage. You may not be able to order very large amounts of one kind of flower. Varying the types of flowers you will use gives you a better chance of getting your entire wedding flower delivery on time. Being flexible and shifting on small details like this will make planning a wedding post-pandemic much simpler.
Instead of hyper-focusing on symmetry and perfection, more couples are allowing for arrangements that are organically designed, or designed with a more relaxed method. This benefits the couple by creating a flower order that is easier and quicker to create. This also helps to ensure that you will receive your order on time.
Big and Beautiful
For couples who perhaps had to postpone their weddings because of the pandemic, all that pent-up wedding planning energy is flowing out into big, bold designs. Think flower chandeliers, dramatic arches, and flower cascades.
There is a definite shift from cookie cutter, traditional arrangements to more creative and playful pieces. This is also seen in the centerpieces used for the tables. Just as more variety of blooms is being used, couples are requesting that centerpieces be varied. Each table can have its own unique centerpiece. This makes the entire flower ordering process easier when there is no need to lock in huge orders of the same exact flower.
