Even if you don’t plan to chase the latest and greatest wedding trends, understanding them can certainly help make sure you create a stylish affair. It can also help ensure your wedding day is unique and yet relevant to today, instead of looking instantly outdated. So, if you have been wondering what florists are whipping up for 2016 weddings or what the most fashion-forward of brides are planning for their nuptials next year, let the experts guide you.
All That Glitters
Metallic vases and floral containers remain big for 2016. Think 1920’s glamour mixed with old Hollywood charm! Gold and silver have long been wedding staples, but rose gold and mercury glass are slated to be especially popular looks for 2016, and ones that can easily be incorporated in all kinds of details, from the flower vases to the candle holders, to wedding shoes and even cake design, as well.
To truly bring elegance to those metallic vases, consider monotone flowers in shades of pink, red, or even white, depending on the season of your wedding. This can be an easy way to add glamour and to keep the focus on the bits of sparkle you’ve incorporated.
Another way to add romance and drama is through the use of oversized and extravagant arrangements. Think billowing roses which are overflowing from their vases and archways filled with hundreds of seasonal blooms.
Even a rustic wedding can still be a great setting for an abundance of flowers. Just choose blossoms that go with your venue and wedding date. Sunflowers and other casual fall flowers, for example, make for great DIY wedding bouquets or centerpieces, especially for an October barn wedding. On the other hand, pink hydrangeas and peonies are beautiful additions to a spring backyard wedding.
