Wedding and flowers are entwined together intricately that it is difficult to imagine one without the other. If you are the kind of bride who has chosen a romantic theme for the wedding day, chances are that flowers have a pivotal role to play at the wedding. Wedding flowers have come along way and the choices for a romantic wedding a few decades back were quite different from the one now. And if you are thinking, ‘well, of course, romantic means roses, how surprising can it be?’, hold your thought! You might be surprised!
• Dangling Daisies: There is something about a bunch of daisies which is incredibly sweet and pretty. The trend encourages a more disheveled take on a bunch of daisies, the long-stemmed dangly kind. Not only does it create a sweeping bouquet, but also it perfectly accessorizes a romantic wedding.
• Baby’s Breath: Mostly known as the ‘filler flower’, Baby’s Breathe or Gypsophila is a flower which works with most looks but especially so with a light and airy romantic wedding! The small springy flowers give the bride an ethereal and heavenly feel which is truly romantic.
• Minimal Carnations: Carnations. We love them. But this time the carnations are here on their own to shine. The take is minimal and simple with a few strands of carnations helping delicately a bride. No extravagant bouquets and ribbons and fillers. We love this look, especially when the carnation color matches the decor in the most delicate way and accentuates the wedding dress.
• Deconstructed designs: Deconstructed floral arrangements are here to stay and are looking as pretty as ever. Whether arranged in tiny mini-bouquets and hung from the arbor, or a single flower arranged in a floral curtain backdrop, the options are huge and are contained only by your imagination and each one is as romantic as the other!
• Sustainable and Local Grown: Flying off-season lilies from across the world is no longer a coveted act and is rather frowned upon. The trend is to support locally grown floral businesses, which is not only great for the local florists but is also sustainable and economic. Sustainable is a trend which is featuring in every area of life now, and here it is, in wedding flower trends too. And we are surely not mad about it!
• More Foliage, Less Flower: As more ‘green brides’ are to be seen every day, people are swapping the expensive flowers with more foliage. Don’t be surprised if your bouquet is looking a little sparse in the flower department and heavier of the foliage. The great news is that the effect is beautiful in a forest nymph, way, and we love it!
• One Large Flower: Let one large overgrown bloom be on the center stage and fill the bouquet up with foliage. This makes quite the statement, and the impact is quite dramatic. We love this trend a lot!
Flowers are nature’s decor and using flowers in weddings is as old as the institution of marriage itself. However, when it comes to romantic flowers, there are a select few which take the crown. But times are a-changing, as we have seen monochromatic and dried flowers and everything in between. People are opting for minimal designs with simple build in general, and the effect is just as romantic as ever!
We will be in touch soon.
