Three Popular Wedding Flower Styles for 2022
Dried flowers have become a huge trend in the past few years, both in weddings and home decor. Not only do they look chic, but they also last well in less-than-ideal weather conditions (if it’s too hot or too cold for fresh cut flowers) and they make great keepsakes for the bridal party.
Brides love to pair palm spears, dried hydrangea, bleached ferns, pampas grass, and bunny tails with terracotta and ceramic containers for a modern-bohemian look.
If your customer is adventurous and longevity isn’t a factor, they can also pair with a variety of palettes, like blush and white. Use bloom such as “Playa Blanca” roses, astilbe, and astrantia or even foliage like monstera, ferns, and eucalyptus.
Garden-style blooms have been, and will continue to be, one of the most popular looks for wedding flowers. If a bride wants garden-style blooms, their florist should select stems like peonies, dahlias, garden roses, tulips, sweet peas, ranunculus, and jasmine vine.
Typically, garden-style seeking brides select romantic, pastel tones for their weddings. Soft lavenders, peaches, blushes, and buttercream yellows are very popular colors. Garden-style also looks terrific in all white for a slightly more refined, upscale appearance.
When designing in the garden-style, don’t be afraid to create asymmetrical, loose, and airy insertions. These brides also love green vines like ivy and smilax to be left long, spilling out of their containers and onto the tables.
Haven’t you heard? Cottagecore is all the rage! Your Gen Z brides will be seeking a causal yet romantic style for their weddings. Wildflower designs can be so fun to make! Pair filler flowers like solidago, stock, chamomile, Queen Anne’s Lace, and limonium with seasonal blooms like daffodils, gomphrena, cockscomb, cornflower, ageratum, rudbeckia, tulips, peonies, marigolds, zinnias, and dahlias. Feel free to use eucalyptus and plumosa to finish off the look.
Wildflower weddings will look sweet with vintage glass budvases and wicker baskets as decorative items. Use heirloom lace or linen ribbon to wrap the bouquets as a completely charming detail!
