Floral Inspiration for Your Wedding Day
April 25, 2017

Wedding flowers are so much more than just the Bride’s bouquet.  Obviously, the bride’s bouquet has a huge impact on her wedding day look but wedding day floral decisions extend much beyond.  Wedding day floral decisions extend to the look of the wedding party and can be a major player in both ceremony and reception décor.

“This beautiful display of blush pinks and deep burgundy colors has been a big eye catcher! The mix of colors are very elegant and can be very natural as well! It seems to be a big trend for a lot of brides this year!” the Floral Team at Crafts Direct shared.

“The blush pink palette is very popular again this year, but we're changing it up a little bit by adding a touch of burgundy and blue (believe it or not, that's exactly what the trend forecasters said would happen, and we doubted them!).

Mixed metal colors are as pretty as ever. Not just mixing silver and gold, but shades and finishes of all different types of metals. Shiny, matte, textured, smooth, they're all combined for a really rich appearance,” explained Rhoda Paurus, of St. Cloud Floral.

Jen, with Wedding & Tuxedo Connection shares, “Succulents have become very trendy for bouquets and boutonniere's.  There are numerous varieties ranging in color and shape.  The disadvantage is the weight of succulents and they tend to be fragile so extra care is needed when handling them.”

“Lavender has been another intriguing and popular trend! Lavender is easy to add as a great accent for just about any season!” according to the Floral Team at Crafts Direct.

Rhoda, from St. Cloud Floral continues, “The use of greens on the tables is still very big for us this year. Some choose to have the foliage's in the form of a garland, some like the look of loose greens with candles and flowers, there are many options available, which makes it more achievable for just about any budget.”

The Wedding & Tuxedo Connection agrees!  “Green's, green's and more green's.  Greenery has become very trendy for table décor.  Adding pops of color with flowers and candles can spruce up the table.  This is an example of a 10' garland of greens with pops of white spider mums, roses and babies breath.  There is seeded euch in there.  Seeded euch is also great for table décor when you just want a touch of green around say a lantern or tiered candles,” explains Jen.

Rhoda with St. Cloud Floral shares a few highlights of what they’re seeing for 2017, “Foliage's!  Which is awesome because there are so many beautiful kinds, colors and textures out there available for us to use.  I'm happy to see that couples are choosing to "loosen" the look of the bouquets up compared to many previous years. Not as wild and crazy as Pinterest bouquets, but not a tight ball of flowers anymore. It allows us to showcase the beauty of more unique blossoms, and not having to use as many flowers, because we've added a little foliage too!”

The bouquet possibilities are endless at Wedding & Tuxedo Connection!  Jen shares, “Here are 4 different bouquets we did, for 4 different weddings in one weekend, which shows that anything goes when it comes to what the bride/groom want for their wedding theme.  Sunflowers are a beautiful hearty flower that adds that pop for color and accents perfect with red or navy.  We also did a nice white/greenery with succulent bouquet.  This one was very heavy.  We also did a beautiful fall colored one with orange calla's and burgundy roses.”

Wedding & Tuxedo Connection offers silk bouquets too!  Jen explains, “This is a silk arrangement we did for a beautiful winter wedding adding pinecones to give it that wintery feel.  With winter weddings silk tends to be a great option for those wanting to take outside photos.  Fresh flowers will freeze and turn brown when they hit that frigid winter air!”
