My mother has been a florist for over 35 years so flowers, and wedding flowers in particular, have always been a common part of the conversation growing up. I have always adored flowers, from the ones we have growing on my family’s acreage to the beautifully strung together bouquets my mum often surprises me with.
Choosing the right wedding flowers is a vital step in creating a day you’ll never forget. We’ve found out the major trends for 2019 weddings to help you decide what flowers will be adorning your wedding.
For a few years now, lush foliage-only bouquets and cascading all green table pieces have risen in popularity and are now a choice made by many brides. This more natural look does not only deliver beautiful, vibrant pieces but offers a more affordable option to brides whose budget is not quite equipped for fresh flowers. If this organic look is your style, fill your bouquet with things like cinerea gum, long-leafed eucalyptus or passion fruit and jasmine vine which are very popular with Queensland brides. If you don’t mind a splash of colour, pepper berry is a beautiful foliage with a brilliant pop of berry red.
The elegant peony, in both bud and bloom form, was the shining star of many bouquets in previous seasons. 2019 will see a slight change, with flower varieties such as Dahlias & Ranunculus expected to be the precious picks of bridal looks.
Hues of blush pink and ivory were seen at many weddings throughout 2017 and 2018. Brides can expect more muted, deep shades such as plum, burgundy and sage green to be all the rage next year. To lighten and compliment these colours, pastel tones such as lilac or pale pink are blended throughout, inspiring a romantic, renaissance feel. This combination creates a unique, otherworldly floral arrangement perfect for the bride looking to stand out and make a statement on her big day.
While major statement installations like flower walls have seen a huge surge in popularity lately, from now on it will all be more about looking at the space your working with and altering your flower plan around it. Florists are suggesting adding one or two key statement arrangements involving the architecture of the space and then adding more modest decorations across table tops and chairs. When searching for your perfect wedding venue, make sure to keep an eye out for how you will integrate your flowers with the space.
Flowers have the ability to transform the feeling or mood for your wedding, with every type boasting its own unique textures, colours and beauty. They give you the opportunity to express your personal style and create a memorable theme to your wedding day.
