Flowers are such a major part of your wedding, and you want to make sure that the blooms you pick are memorable and special. Three trends in wedding flowers have emerged for 2015, and all of them find a way to be gorgeous and affordable at the same time. If you want to have the latest trends in flowers for your wedding day, read here for the three main trends and how to use them.
Farm-to-Table and Foraged
You may have heard of the farm-to-table trend in relation to food, but this idea for sustainable products that go from the source directly to you is now being seen in wedding flowers. The key to farm-to-table flowers is that they be locally grown. Locally sourced flowers can also be surprisingly inexpensive. Many florists are now knowledgeable about how to source fresh and organic flowers from local floral growers.
If you are looking for an eco-friendly way to celebrate your union, foraged flowers are ideal. Foraged flowers are simply flowers and greenery that is available for no cost at all, found in friends' and family's gardens or just out in the wild or along the roadside. The look is simple, casual and authentic.
The color of the year for 2015 is marsala, a gorgeous, deep wine red shade. If at first glance you feel that the color is not quite right for flowers, think again. This color adds a bold accent shade that compliments pinks, corals, peaches, and raspberry. This deep, lush shade exemplifies another big floral trend which is to have deep, bolder, dusky colors in bouquets and centerpieces.
Flowers Worn as Accessories
Floral crowns have been around for as long as weddings have, but the trend has really had a resurgence recently. Throughout history, flower crowns have symbolized femininity, fertility and royalty. Worn with or without a veil, these headpieces are almost universally flattering to all face shapes. Flower girls look adorable with little flower crowns as well.
Wearable flowers also look fresh woven into an updo for your bridesmaids, as well as in combs with tiny flowers. Flowers attached to rings, bracelets and pins are another way to wear flowers as accessories.
As you can see, there is no need to spend a lot to achieve the trendiest looks for your wedding flowers. Simply turn to your florist and allow them to work with you to create your dream floral displays and looks that will wow your guests and make your day more colorful and festive.
