Chances are, if you are visiting our page, you are into romance, whimsy, and immensely dreamy things. After all, if I had to summarize our style, those three things are exactly what makes us who we are, Modern Romantics.
Every component matters in designing your wedding to be a perfect rendition of what you've dreamed of and perhaps one of the most important components, are the flowers! Friends, never EVER skimp on the flowers. Many people will spend so much money on their photographer (a good photographer is worth every. single. penny.), and some will say, I don't want to spend too much on the flowers...they will only last for a day. But let me give you some food for thought, you hire your photographer to take amazing photos because you see the work that they've done through their features on blogs/magazines and you think that if you have that photographer, your wedding will turn out the same as what you've seen. BUT, the key is this, you have to give your photographers beautiful things to photograph and flowers are always at the top of the list to create that beautiful and dreamy wedding that you've envisioned. So, make strides to create a healthy floral budget to accomplish the dreaminess that you have your heart set on.
Now that that's out of the way, I wanted to share my favorite floral trends that are happening right now, because they are downright beautiful and what dreams are made of. This is the wedding rendition of what Bazaar Magazine's previous column "buy, keep, toss" is, spoken in the language of flowers. Round, tight, centerpieces and bouquets are no longer in trend. Tall Centerpieces are not in trend anymore either. Instead, opt for flowy and whimsical arrangements, because they evoke that lust for romance in its purest form. New shapes in bouquets take the form of an oblong arrangement (think football) and free flowing arrangements that evoke the feeling of just having been picked from the garden. Centerpieces too, favor asymmetrical designs that are free flowing, loose in arrangement and bursting with foliage. While tall centerpieces will always be a favorite to bring the glam and drama into a reception space that has tall ceilings, consider hanging a beautiful floral chandelier to fill the negative space rather than to raise the height of your flowers on the table. I've rounded up some inspirations from some of the floral designers in the industry that inspire me daily for your enjoyment.
So go ahead, channel your inner free spirit when considering the floral design that you want for your wedding celebration. I promise, you won't regret it.
Happy weekend dreaming lovelies!
