8 Trends for Spring Wedding Flowers to Try Now
From Dutch-inspired masterpieces to bunches bursting with branches
These two have more in common than their first names. Blogger Maggie Lord of Rustic Wedding Chic and LA-based florist Maggie Carson of The Bosky Dell also share a passion for beautiful blooms. Here, they teamed up to share their take on the latest ideas for arranging bouquets, centerpieces, and more for the big day.
These arrangements are anything but morose. With draping greens at the base of pretty, open blooms, they instead impart a natural romance requested by many of today's brides.
Amid soft, full flowers, succulents lend texture to wedding centerpieces and are a particularly great option for simple color palettes. Bonus: If you are trying to have an eco-friendly celebration, the more succulents the better!
Whether you are aiming to create a clean aesthetic or trying to keep your flower budget low, minimal centerpieces like this one can be just as eye-catching and elegant as more decadent floral arrangements. Try working with geometric structures, like this brass one, which can be used in countless ways to give your table décor a modern twist.
Dark iron vases bursting with blooms and whimsical greens make for an ideal combination that has been praised for centuries, dating back to the great Dutch painters. This style of arrangement has made a major comeback in recent years, and with good reason. Loosely composed for an unruly feel, they are the perfect bridge between a natural and traditional approach to wedding florals.
Bud vases comprised of amber glass add a richness and nostalgia to any spread. Single unique flowers or even sprigs of ferns are all they need to be a beautiful addition to the reception.
Unconstructed, loose wedding bouquets made with an eclectic mix of blooms and greens give the impression that they have been gathered by the bride herself on her way to the altar.
Spring is the season for blossoming branches. Best used in centerpieces, they make a bold statement when interspersed with cut flowers.
Anchored aisle arrangements are subtle, but add so much to an outdoor wedding, appearing as if they are bursting forth from the ground itself.
