Wedding Bouquet Ideas: Our Favourite Floral Trends
Here's a reality check brides are all too familiar with – Weddings. Are. Hard. From coordinating bridesmaids' outfits and dealing with confrontations, to trying to be diplomatic to your parents even when they continually add to your guest list, planning a wedding can test even the most patient bride-to-be. But the one thing that's guaranteed to rouse the romantics? Flowers.
Breathtaking blooms shape the entire day, but can be difficult to choose from. Plus, factor in selecting colour schemes and arrangements and you have quite a task at hand. Need inspiration (and help)? Here are some of the biggest floral trends to please even the fussiest of brides.
For a free-spirited feel, think native bouquets overflowing with wattle, king proteas and eucalyptus leaves. An "imperfect" arrangement adds character and charm to your big day, and will make your photos look divine.
This trend can be tricky, but when done correctly the result can be incredibly gorgeous. A variety of green foliage will compliment a traditional colour scheme stunningly. If you can't quite commit yourself to the trend, a simple baby’s breath bouquet will still add rustic charm and a country feel.
These stunning arrangements are time-honoured yet modern. By using blooms such as hydrangeas or daisies in lieu of roses and lilies, your arrangements are guaranteed that “wow” factor.
Think roses, especially peonies – round or oval-shaped bouquets, in whites, pinks and peaches. Structured blooms paired with minimal greenery add sophistication and luxury to a classic wedding theme.
