Pastels are this seasons colour trend; pastel shades, “Rose Quartz” and “Serenity” were chosen by Pantone for the colour of the year for 2016. Whatever colour it is that you’re choosing for your wedding, finding flowers in a pastel shade of that colour will give an elegant and classic touch to your wedding.

Pastel shades of any colour go well with white (to go perfectly with that white wedding dress), light grey or any light shade of neutral to compliment your pastel colour. Consider these neutral shades for your vases or ribbons for your wedding flowers.

VarietyWedding Flower | Centrepiece |2016 Wedding Trends | Brant Florist Wedding Flowers

Mix it up at your wedding by making each wedding centrepiece different. Not all the tables, or your bridesmaid’s bouquets, need to look the same! This element of variety is very trendy this year. You can either stick with a similar colour and a different variety of flower type, or choose all different colours of flowers and use all of your favourite colours that you just couldn’t choose from this year.

Boutonnieres and corsages

Match your boutonnieres for your groomsmen to your bridesmaids’ flower bouquets or corsages.

If you’re going with the variSummer Wedding Trend Bridesmaids Flowers | Brant Florist Wedding Flowersety trend, make sure the flower in the groomsman’s boutonniere is the same colour flower as the bouquet of the bridesmaid’s that he is walking down the aisle! This keeps the variety as a fresh element and keeps a unified consistency to your wedding party.


Fresh and Local

A guaranteed trend this year is that of local and seasonal. By choosing wedding flowers that are in season where you are holding your wedding, you’re ensuring not only the freshest cut flowers, but also that they are from a local florist.

There is no better choice than supporting local businesses and displaying flower arrangements that were prepared only days before your big day.

Wedding Bouquets

Pinterest can come in handy when trying to get your ideas across to your florist however, keep in mind, there are no prices on Pinterest. 🙂

The trend right now for bridal bouquets is large flowers- peonies, garden roses, even the dreaded-but beautiful-hydrangea. I’m going to give you the low down on these flowers so you are prepared when meeting with your florist.

Beautiful local Peonies are only available May-June when they are in season. Imports are available outside of the local season but the same size and quality may not be there although still expensive.

Almost everyone is familiar with the rose and how it looks when it blooms. Its petals start wound up tight, and as the rose starts to bloom, with their unfolding or unravelling of petals, they turn into the classic beauty we all know and love. The garden rose looks very different when it opens up. It looks very similar to a peony with the outside petals opening up wide and the centre displaying all of its glorious petals. They are stunning but with their splendour comes a hefty price and also difficulty in getting them in stock. They are not widely available. Luckily nowadays with Mother Nature’s minions (a.k.a-the rose growers) they have come up with some outstanding standard roses that open up beautifully.

As for the hydrangea they are a whole other story. I have spoken about hydrangeas in one of my past blogs in great detail but this is why having them in your wedding bouquet is possibly a gamble. Hydrangeas need water… all the time. Your bouquet will be out of water for most of the day which means they will start to droop and if you have used the hydrangea to support any of the other flowers in your bouquet; they will in fact droop as well. It might hold up for the ceremony but by the time you take pictures or if you are planning to display your bouquet at the reception it will start to look like that one wedding guest slouched over in the chair from over indulging at the bar! There is a 50% chance that they will hold up….but I wouldn’t count on it on one of the most important days of your life.

Hope these tips help! There are so many floral options for wedding bouquets. Keep an open mind and put some trust in the florist! They are professionals who can work with you and your budget and might have a few tricks up their sleeve for you.

Happy Wedding!

Here are some wedding reception flower ideas which will help you to plan a nice and impressive wedding reception venue decoration:

  • Bridal bouquet — For bridal bouquet, you can either go for variety or uniformity in the flower bouquet. However, the right choice of bouquet depends on your preference and budget. It would be best if the bridal bouquet is small and handy as it would be easy to carry around for the bride.
  • Better photography — For better wedding photography, you can opt for pastel coloured blooms as it will help you to set against a darker backdrop. Exotic blooms are considered a must for the wedding day as anything lighter would just blend in and simply appear lifeless.

Thus, one cannot ignore the significance of beautiful flowers in enhancing the overall look of your wedding reception venue.
