Expert Tips: Wedding Flower Trends

Posted on March 16th, 2008 by Kori Ellis in Wedding Flowers No Comments

Your choice in flowers can really add to the beauty of your wedding ceremony and reception. Sometimes brides get overwhelmed by all the floral choices. Though the decision is ultimately yours, you should try to talk with florists, wedding experts and other brides to get an idea what is working (and not working) in wedding flowers this year.

Clara Varga-Gonzales, owner of Tiger Lily Florist in Charleston, S.C., which has been named Elegant Bride Magazine’s Top Wedding Designers for 2005 and The Knot Best of Flowers 2007, offers up the following trends they are seeing for wedding flowers:

First there is definitely still a curiosity about natural elements. Flowers and botanicals, such as grasses, pods, herbs and lichens, are incorporated into all aspects of the wedding – from boutonnieres to pew markers and cake flowers.

Designs that focus on grouping materials such as chocolate artichokes, fern curls and green Goddess Callas lilies are presented in artisan containers and gracing the tables at outdoor receptions.

In color palettes, green is still the most sought after color with accent shades of creams and white or hot pinks and mango coral. However, combinations of deep burgundy red Black Magic roses, Black Forest mini Callas and rich purple, almost black, tulips are striking against ornate damask linen. No more white linen on guest tables for sure.

Ceremonies that are being held outdoors are letting nature provide the back drop, which can be quite dramatic here in the Lowcountry. Emphasis on ornate aisle starters and chair markers allow the bride and groom to be the main focus for guests during ceremonies.
