We are always keen to stay abreast of the latest developments in the floral world, so we’ve been taking a look at the new wedding trends destined to be big this year according to the industry experts…
Wild botanical is here to stay
Last year we saw popularity grow for natural, wilder, meadow-style flowers and British blooms were a key element to this trend. We are delighted to hear that this English Country Garden style looks set to stay and we are so looking forward to using lots of seasonal flowers from our very own Not So Secret Garden this coming year.
In contrast to the larger, wilder bouquets that have become popular, a new trend predicted for this year is for smaller, more compact wedding bouquets. The Duchess of Cambridge and Pippa Middleton both opted for beautiful and understated bouquet and perhaps helped set this trend. We’re all eagerly anticipating Megan Markle’s bouquet this May and wonder if she will go for compact too!
Traditional flowers with a modern twist
Another trend predicted to be big this year is the use of traditional flowers with a modern twist. Gypsophilia was very popular in 2017. It is extremely versatile – it can be used in combination with other flowers to give a fresh, light tough, or can be used alone for a beautiful Midsummer Nights Dream look – either in bouquets or flower crowns, aisle flowers or table centres. Experts are predicting other traditional flowers such as lilies and orchids to be big this year.
Impactful ceremony flowers
Not forgetting the ceremony flowers, experts are seeing an evolution of the traditional floral arch to a circular ‘moongate’ installation – this backdrop is perfect for framing beautiful surrounding and create a stunning focal point. Or why not look beyond and create something completely different these hops and willow sunflower structures we created at Wick Farm
It has also been predicted that wedding chair will be a focus in 2018. Adorning ceremony wedding chairs with beautiful flowers can be incredibly effective – chairs take up a considerable amount of space at the ceremony so gorgeous aisle flowers can have a fantastic impact. We got together with Wedding event and Prophire based at Hartley farm to have a play with Chairs and florals….
