When it comes to wedding planning, many brides look forward to choosing their flowers as much or more than any other decision. After all, when else does a girl get to select dozens of her favorite blooms, much less carry such a gorgeous bouquet? If you are hoping to shirk tradition and create truly unique florals for your big day, then take advantage of these on-trend options that will make a great statement!
Succulents Aren’t Just for the Desert
Succulents might be popular in home décor, but you don’t have to reserve them for your windowsill. Many brides are opting to incorporate these gorgeous blooms into both their bouquets and their table décor.
Plus, because they are so hearty, succulents make great gifts for guests to take home after the wedding, as well!
Cascading Blooms Are Having a Moment
If you want dramatic flowers, then instead of going for traditional round bouquets or centerpieces, consider cascading blooms instead. This works well for bridal bouquets, and also on archways or altars.
Create Interest with Fun Containers and Colorful Touches
Another way to make your flower arrangements extra special is by placing them in unique vessels instead of traditional vases. This works especially well if you let your wedding venue serve as inspiration. If you’ve chosen a rustic space, for instance, opt for vintage canning jars or carved wooden pieces.
For instance, fill vintage coffee or tea tins, pitchers or even watering cans with eclectic centerpieces. You could also use books to elevate decorative elements, then add moss and fresh flowers right on top. The sky is really the limit, when it comes to creating unique centerpieces.
And for bouquets, wrap them with unique fabric such as vintage lace, or opt for colorful grosgrain or velvet ribbon. Brooches and antique pins also make great additions, especially if they can serve as both your “something borrowed,” and your “something old.”
