We know fall is near when the leaves start to change colors and we feel the crisp breeze. Chili is in the crockpot and our iced coffees become hot. The flip flops turn into boots and the oversized scarves are an everyday staple. We see fall trends everywhere, including weddings! Fall is the a whole new seasons of wedding trends.
So, what’s trending for this year’s wedding florals? Well for one, the prim and proper bouquets from the summer time weddings usually become a little more wild and rustic looking in the fall. Seasonal fillers, like dried grasses and berries, and the color palette shifts to more of muted, moody, and muddy colors.
Fresh from the garden, seasonal flowers continue to become more popular as awareness and interest in local flowers continues to grow, especially among studio florists and style-and-eco conscious couples.
Muted, muddy & moody hues. This year, we’ll see more subdued and muted monochromatic bouquets and far fewer multicolored bouquets in bright or contrasting colors. Shades such as dusty rose, milky coffee, champagne, buttercream, apricot and moonstone will be popular choices when it comes to floral.
Greenery as a theme. Greenery will be reflected in weddings but in subtle, and less literal, and overtly obvious ways. We predict we’ll see less focus of this specific hue of green, and more of the concept of using nontraditional greenery and foliage as a more prominent focal point in wedding decor. Greenery can be
incorporated in creative ways, such as garlands of foliage stretching down the middle of Kings tables, sprigs of greens adorning place settings, greenery wreaths, chair decor and foliage backdrops for ceremony sites or photo booths.
Wild, ‘gathered from the garden’ bouquet shapes.
Traditional tight, round balls of blooms are a trend of the distant past. Stylish brides are opting for large, lush, loose bouquets with more organic forms that tend to be bigger and wider than in years past. The continued popularity of boho and gypsy-inspired wedding décor also support this organic aesthetic and design style.
Stylish floral wearables.
Subtle, delicate floral hair accessories, have virtually replaced the big, bold floral crowns from years past. Another big trend will be elegant cuff wrist corsages that look and feel more like jewelry. These bangle-type bracelets will hopefully permanently replace the often reviled elastic wristlets popular at high school proms. Keep an eye out for other creative interpretations of traditional floral wearables on mothers, grandmothers and other wedding party attendants.
A mix of high and low.
Rather than a sea of carbon-copy centerpieces, more couples are opting to mix and match their table décor. This entails alternating elevated bouquets, with long, low centerpieces, sprawling low profile compotes, or clusters of small bottles of single blooms. By choosing just a few larger statement pieces, the mix of elevated and low designs provides vertical interest without busting the budget.
