Wedding Flowers Featuring Scentiment Flowers
Let’s face it, flowers and weddings go hand-in-hand. You only have to take a quick look at anything wedding related that may pass you in your day to day life and see flowers often centre stage of each happy image. However it can be very confusing to navigate the vast information out there on wedding flowers. Whats in season? What is available in the palette of the dress or reception? So many questions to keep up with in a fast-moving industry!
Luckily, today we are talking wedding flower trends down south for the upcoming 2021/2022 season; and we couldn’t be happier to have an expert along to help us out! South West Wedding Vibes’ very own Nardine from Scentiment Flowers has many years experience shaping unforgettable spaces, bouquets and romantic receptions in the South West. We caught up with Nardine to discuss whats wedding flower trends in 2021 and beyond!
Let’s jump into it!
Bright and Beautiful Colour Palettes
Earthy tones are still popular, and we all love a dark and mysterious mood board … but most wedding venues are designed in very neutral colours so that whatever flowers and colours you bring in will work with the décor … so why not make your venue ‘pop’ with rich jewel tones and berry-licious flowers and colours. Yum!
Elaborate Ceremony Pieces
With travel restrictions set to continue for some time, wedding guest lists are often smaller than our couples would have liked, so they are investing the money they would have spent on catering, into more elaborate ceremony spaces with floral embellishments to welcome signs, stunning floral floor aisles, decorated backdrops and signing table arrangements. And when you work with a professional florist these arrangements can often be re-purposed at your reception as well – so they are a great investment (and make for STUNNING photos!)
With so many couples opting for large hanging installations over the bridal table or dance floor, and also as a result of the popularity of ‘banquet’ food service (and therefore very little table space for flowers), we are seeing table arrangements becoming smaller – often in single stem or bud vases. Vases can be glass, neutral coloured ceramics, metal, or an eclectic mix – often with taper or dinner candles for added oomph. Flower types best suited to bud vases are what we call ‘hero’ flowers, eg: orchids, anthurium, reflexed roses and chrysanthemum disbuds, but bunny tails and billy buttons add a ‘cuteness’ factor as well.
Yes!!! We are seeing a resurgence of romantic reds, often mixed with various shades of pink to provide a beautiful contrast.
