Top Wedding Flower Trends for 2015
Flowers can make the look of your wedding and add an extra special touch to your décor. The team at North-West Brides has just fell in love with the new floral trends for 2015, whether simple and chic or extravagant and stylish there’s sure to be something to suit every wedding.
Wool Wrapped Bouquets
We love this new trend that sees bridal bouquet handles wrapped in wool or twine, which is perfect for brides going for an earthy or boho look. This style works particularly well for a winter wedding with simple blooms and foliage such as white anemones, lamb’s ear and pussy willow. Add modest adornments like buttons to the wool wrap to make it a little more interesting.
The garden party trend was big throughout 2014 and continues to be a firm favourite for weddings in 2015. This pretty trend has a ‘just picked from the garden’ look so mixing several different varieties and colours of flowers will work best. Foliage is welcome and bouquets should be hand-tied. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s recent wedding embraced this trend as their children literally went out into the garden of the couple’s French chateau and handpicked flowers for the ceremony.
2015 sees luxurious wedding blooms at the fore for wedding décor, as inspired by the lavish, celebrity wedding of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West whose ceremony saw a huge flower wall of peonies, roses and gardenias as its backdrop. This trend is heavy on flowers and is all about the blooms, so stems should be concealed and foliage avoided. However it’s also a trend that comes with an expensive price tag so most of us will only fantasize about it but you can have a touch of this luxury trend on a budget by adopting key pieces within your décor such as an entrance feature or some pew ends.
Floral crowns burst onto the bridal scene in 2014 with an almighty ‘look at me, look at me’. The style of full, heavily layered floral crowns presented mostly in bridal fashion shoots was a look that was only donned by brides who wanted to make a huge statement. However 2015 sees the floral crown become more wearable by using delicate flowers such as gypsophila or a single row of fuller blooms.
Clean and Elegant
The classic look of all white or ivory flowers remains popular with brides in 2015. This effect of colour blocking to match the shade of your dress offers a style of simplistic elegance while also appearing very clean and light. It works best by selecting a single flower variety such as white hydrangeas, white roses or calla lilies as your sole wedding flower. Using only one variety may also reduce the cost of your flowers, which is something you can discuss with your florist.
For a gorgeous decorative touch at your wedding reception hang jars or bottles filled with pretty blooms around the grounds or from trees. As well as being a pretty element that your guests will love, these hanging blooms also make a great backdrop for photographs. You can also add ribbons and hanging candles to complement your blooms.
