This season's brightest floral trends

As the spring wedding season is on our doorsteps, so is the continuation of many eye-catching and staple trends for florals and wedding decor. This season, the rustic and vintage touches are here to stay, but with a new twist as unusual wedding bouquets are making their debut and bright pops of color are becoming the popular choice. Couples are now finding unique ways to authentically bring out their personalities into the decor on their special day. Vintage books and antique toys are no longer just used as staged pieces and now seem to signify a personal rememberance for the bride and groom. Planning the wedding down to the intricate details continues to be of major importance as couples are being challenged to really pull out their creativity to keep the wedding about them and their personalities.
Three extravagant and dazzling trends for this season are:
Unique and Unusual Bouquets
As budget constraints and eco-friendly weddings are becoming more prevalent, couples are turning to more artistic ways to cut back on the floral aspect for their wedding. One method that we will continue to see this season is using non-flowers. Feathers, buttons, brooches, ribbons, air plants and leaves are all objects that will continue to be added to bride's bouquets for many years to come! Every bride aims for those special pieces which speak volumes on their personality, their hobbies and even something to allude to specific details of their relationship. In addition to planning the intimacies of the bouquet, we will continue to see personal touches and detailing on the bouquet handle. Vintage ribbons, family heirlooms, or artsy elements ordered on Etsy are frequently seen on the bridal bouquet.
Modern and Rustic Infused Décor
As weddings come to fruition out here on the East Coast we are continuing to see a mix of both rustic and vintage touches. Instead of the traditional loose sprigs in the mason jars and milk glass, we are seeing more tightly packed blooms which allows for a greater variety of flower. With the summer months upon us, make sure that you are incorporating blocks of bright fun color when arranging your bouquets in the vase of your choice.
Tangerine is here to Tango!
Inspired by this year's Pantone color of the year, many bouquets are becoming more bold with their wedding palettes. This season, tangerine tango could throw some of those neutral palettes a curveball. Mixing neutral tones or soft greens with tangerine really brings about an eye popping wow factor. Picture how beautiful this tangerine tango would be with a classic navy at a beautiful shoreline wedding in July...I can hear the oohs and ahhs from the crowd now!
