The floral trends for the 2015 wedding season take on a certain natural beauty that feels very fresh and bold. Kim and Kanye’s gorgeous wall of white roses for their wedding has inspired many 2015 brides to go for a romantic luxurious look.
This wedding season is all about the flower walls, chandeliers and crowns. It’s a year that will see floral design being embraced in many aspects of a wedding- not just center pieces and bouquets. However, we also see wonderful throwbacks. Remember Princess Diana’s beautiful cascading bouquet?
Well this 80s trend is back- floral arrangements, whether they be bouquets or part of the décor, are more free form including varying elements, not just flowers. The picked from the garden look has become popular and we see seasonal arrangements such as sweet peas, garden roses and tulips used. For the fall wedding season, the look sought after is wilder, from the woodlands. It aims to bring the outdoors inside: ferns, foxgloves, blowsy roses, branches, vines and foliage.
Another trend that I absolutely love is incorporating edible components such as fruiting vines, fruits and herbs with traditional flowers. The colour palette for 2015 has become deeper and richer including beautiful hues and tones inspired by Pantone’s colour of the year, Marsala.
It’s easy to get creatively inspired by these trends. Cascading chandeliers flower walls and wall hangings can take many forms. Green wreathes, vines, roses and many other flowers can be used in flower walls and hangings. Edible arrangements are perfect to add to the garden or woodlands look but we can get even more creative and add other elements as well: for example, subtle jewel elements easily create a very luxurious look. Also, I love that flower crowns are back! They’re so romantic and feminine and can be both bold and delicate. Full blooms such as roses and hydrangeas are perfect for a high impact look and gypsophila create a lovely delicate crown.
There are many beautiful floral wedding trends this year; at the end of the day, however, the most important thing to consider is the bride’s aspirations for her important day. I love getting creative and incorporating trends with the bride’s vision, making each arrangement, bouquet, center piece and crown unique to the couple.
