Wedding flowers have come undone for 2015. Forget perfectly symmetrical bouquets and polished monobotanical centrepieces; in their place we see loose, cascading bouquets, walls and tabletops adorned with wild greenery and ceilings hung with lush floral chandeliers.
Many brides are also reconsidering traditional wedding floral elements, opting for corsages for their bridesmaids in lieu of matching bouquets.
Our first wedding floral trend: Wild, cascading florals.
1. Wild, Cascading Florals
After years of compactly arranged, tightly wound bouquets, the cascade is back and it’s beautiful. This style of bouquet is definitely a throwback — it was a go-to floral style for ‘80s brides, popularized when Lady Diana Spencer walked down the aisle with a jaw-dropping cascade of white blooms in 1981.
Wild, undone wedding flowers will extend beyond the bouquet in 2015. You’ll see this style of blooms sprouting up in everything from aisle decor to centrepieces as well. Here we’ll show you five ways to work unruly blooms into your big day.
2. Bridesmaid Corsages
Tiny matching bouquets are on their way out. This year more brides will forgo bridesmaids’ bouquets entirely and instead opt for pretty wrist corsages. These functional floral accessories range from single-bloom designs adorned with whimsical ribbons to large, cascading creations in dramatic hues. Here we’ll show you five ways to interpret the bridesmaid corsage trend.
3. Herb Boutonnieres
Who says boutonnieres need to be made entirely of blooms? In 2015 grooms will be getting more adventurous with their lapel accessories opting for boutonnieres featuring a variety of herbs. These fragrant plants look equally lovely on their own or paired with succulents, berries and mushrooms. Here we’ll show you all the different ways you can incorporate herbs into your groom’s lapel adornment.
4. Wall Floral Decor
Reception venue floral decor isn’t limited to centrepieces and garlands. In fact, the more flowers you can incorporate the more beautiful your space will be. Fresh floral walls and wall hangings, in particular, will be huge in 2015. Ever since Kim and Kanye tied the knot in front of a wall of white roses in 2014 this trend has been on the rise. From pretty green wreaths to bountiful swags, the options are endless so let your imagination and your floral designer’s talents be your guide!
5. Floral Chandeliers
Have your table tops and wall decor handled? Now it’s time to think about the ceilings! This year, focus is shifting off of traditional centrepieces and moving skywards to jaw-dropping floral chandeliers. From ethereal orchid arrangements to luxurious bundles of roses, these lovely ceiling adornments are sure to transform your wedding venue.
