Floral Wedding Trends We’re Excited About in 2018
Brides in 2018 are asking wedding florists for brighter, more vibrant blooms instead of softer, neutral tones – and the same goes for our flower delivery bouquets. Vibrant wedding bouquets usually include one central bold colours matched with a few complementary tones and rounded out with an abundance of natural greenery. They are lush, brave and eye-catching, the perfect floral accompaniment for a confident bride.
Another wedding flower option that has been steadily gaining popularity over the last year is foraged bouquets and centrepieces. Foraged florals include a lot of natural elements that aren’t traditionally included in a bouquet, like branches, vines and herbs that could very well be plucked right from your own backyard. Mount Maunganui and Papamoa are great places to forage. Of course, your Tauranga wedding florist will do the foraging for you so you can spend the lead up to your big day getting ready!
With television shows and new engagement announcements, there has been a newfound obsession with the Royal family. For brides with a penchant for the regal, copper vases, candelabras and teapots are becoming sought-after pieces to bring a touch of majesty to wedding centrepieces.
Borrowing from Europe in a completely different way is the up and coming trend towards the styles of the Mediterranean. Med-inspired florals include brilliant wedding flowers in shades of bright orange, cornflower blue and lavender purple accented with cream, beige and pale peach tones. This contrast between natural off-whites with coastal colours resembles the food, style and architecture found in towns and villages along the Mediterranean Sea. Mediterranean bouquets also make for a lovely flower delivery to brighten up a loved one’s day.
It might sound like something out of an old-fashioned scrapbook, but dried flowers are becoming a wonderful and unique addition to any modern wedding. Making use of dried palm fronds and grasses brings an earthy feel to a down-to-earth wedding, perfect for down-to-earth, bohemian brides.
