Wedding Bouquet Trends

Just as wedding dress trends change with time, wedding flower trends are also constantly evolving and you could call this the year of vibrancy! Color is not to feared when picking out floral arrangements for your bouquets or centerpieces, while adding dashes of greenery is still hot, hot, hot!

But let’s face it, at Mike Staff Productions, we pride ourselves on being music nuts, photography perfectionists and videography nerds... flowers are simply not our expertise. So, we scouted local experts from Twigs & Branches Floral and Blumz by JRDesigns to help break down what we’re seeing in wedding bouquet trends!

Twigs & Branches Floral

Mike Staff Productions: Big & showy, small & dainty — what are you seeing brides ask for when it comes to bouquet size? 

Kevin Miller: I am seeing a little bit of both!  I see a lot of the organic styles going on, with greens flowing and giving the showy look.  I am also seeing a lot of brides with a simple look with a few garden roses and mixed greenery for a nice petit bouquet.  Loving both styles right now!

MSP: What kinds of flowers are popular this year, anything new from your standard seasonal selection?

KV: Floral Design has come to a whole new level these last couple years.  I feel like clients are venturing into your out of the norm florals.  I am seeing requests for ranunculus, anemone, king protea, Acacia, peonies, and garden roses.  Some of these are definitely still staples, but texture is in!

MSP: Is greenery still big? Why has this been such a hit? How do you create that look?

KV: Definitely seeing a lot of greenery still!  I feel like it has been reinvented and people are using it as accents now instead of the focal.  I think this was a hit because of the organic look that is has been so big.  It is also a lot more cost effective depending how you use it.  You can create this look with using some of the popular greens like silver dollar eucalyptus, plumosa, and seeded eucalyptus.  Whether your wire it together in a garland for down the table or filling up vases for centerpieces.  Greenery is easy to work with and can last a lot longer than certain flowers as well.

MSP: Color — I am sure you see a little bit of everything and of course it depends on season — but overall, what colors are dominating? Jewel tones are back I hear?

KV: LOVE COLOR!  It is definitely making a comeback!  I am seeing a lot of coral accents going on.  I love how brides are getting creative and mixing brighter colors with a few muted colors as well.  Example: Coral, Peach, Slate Gray, and Yellow.  Jewel Tones are in!  I am seeing a lot of that more as pops of color again depending on the season.

MSP: Bridal party – anything​ fun and new happening with the bridesmaids bouquets?

KV: Bridesmaids are getting some fun looks these days.  Seeing a lot of feathers, cotton, air plants, grasses, and even herbs.  Again the textures are where it’s at.  I can only appreciate this because it makes our job fun to pull in unique elements like this.

Sadie Quagliotto:  Big and showy seems to be the latest trend.  Lots of brides are obsessed with a big, lush, garden greenery bouquet. We even had one recently that was spilling over with peonies.  It was gorgeous but almost too heavy to hold! Big is beautiful but it can be heavy, which most brides forget!

MSP: What kinds of flowers are popular this year, anything new from your standard seasonal selection?SQ: The flowers are very seasonal, right now it’s all about Peonies,Dahlias, and Ranunculus.The quicksand rose has also become a popular flower that we keep having requests for.

MSP: Is greenery still big? Why has this been such a hit? How do you create that look?

SQ: Greenery is still huge. We think it’s a hit for 2 reasons…

1) It is the opposite of traditional, usually brides were looking for something that was round and compact, These days they like the loose, textured, whimsical nature of greenery. I think it reflects the mindset of this generation, they are more open and free spirited, less structured or controlled than previous generations. There’s also a resurgence of connecting with nature and that hippie/boho vibe/attitude so I think this is another way people express that.

2) They hear from all the blogs that greenery can lower overall cost and they are looking for an easy way to get the big beautiful look without spending a fortune.

MSP: Color — I am sure you see a little bit of everything and of course it depends on season — but overall, what colors are dominating? Jewel tones are back I hear?

SQ: The biggest request is muted colors with possibly a pop of color blush & burgundy, blush & navy, blush & white/cream. Blush dominates for sure. Champagne is another big one. Or just whites with greenery, that’s not necessarily color but that’s one of our most requested looks as well. Jewel tones were nearly as dominant back in fall/part of winter, in my opinion faded out when spring came, but still seems to be big for this upcoming fall.

MSP: Bridal party – anything​ fun and new happening with the bridesmaids bouquets?

SQ: Maids bouquets are still “smaller version” of the bride. I have came across the maids bouquets being “downsized”   for the bride to stand out more.
