Brides often ask us what is in fashion when it comes to wedding flowers. You may not think that fashion has much to do with flowers but there are definite trends that we see every year. Popular colours are often driven by the fashion in bridesmaids’ dresses whereas style often complements the bridal gown detailing.
For the organised bride who has chosen her bridesmaids’ dresses earlier in 2011, blue and purple are still the colours of choice. White flowers provide the perfect balance to this and give brides plenty of different types of flowers to choose from. Brides who have left their dress shopping until more recently, are opting for rich berry shades of red and pink.
Whatever the colour scheme the style of bouquets and arrangements remains very natural. The ‘just picked from the garden’ look is very popular and this means that we are using lots of cottage garden style flowers and vintage vases. Brides are also asking us to use their own vases to add a personal and home spun feel.

Regardless of these trends the most important thing is that you have what you want. After all, it is your day and you may want to do something more personal or unusual. Some designs are classic wedding arrangements. White or ivory flowers with green foliage are a traditional combination that never goes out of fashion and red roses are the time-honoured romantic flower, so if you are not sure what to choose, you can’t go wrong with one of these.
