2014 WEDDING TRENDS PART 3

Fresh flowers at a wedding excite the senses, create the desired ambience, and transform any room, whatever your style. Although roses are always a popular choice for wedding foliage, the floral trend of 2014 is showcasing some unique blooms. Compact, over-styled arrangements are making way for a more relaxed aesthetic. Wildflowers are all the rage for 2014. A “just picked from the garden” look is soft and romantic, humble and bohemian. Clip a few sprigs of baby’s breath into your hair, arrange statice and trachelium in a mason jar, pin on a boutonniere cradled in dusty miller, and it will look like your wedding blossomed from a dreamy wildflower field.

A budget conscious and elegantly simple trend of 2014 is the single-flower bouquet. A single stem of your favourite flower in full bloom is charming and understated. Try a peony, dahlia, or hydrangea, just a few of the flower types that work perfectly for this floral trend.

A masculine yet chic and modern wedding floral trend of 2014 is the succulent air plant. Exotic and resilient, the succulent is the ideal floral accent if you are looking for something unique. It is a visually interesting accent to a centrepiece, looks totally fab as a wedding cake garnish, and is a lovely favour that guests will actually appreciate and display long after the wedding.

If you love flowers but are not sure where to start for your wedding selection, why not make a date and check out your local flower market? Gather a few of your favourite buds, and arrange at home to see how you like the combination. There are endless floral options out there; taking the time to make specific selections that reflect your style will add a level of detail to your wedding and make for a truly personalized celebration.
