The Best Wedding Flowers for 2016

When planning a wedding every detail is important but none more so than your flowers. Picking the right floral arrangement is crucial for your big day. Not only do flowers act as centre pieces on your guests tables, they decorate your venue and most importantly, they are carried by not only the bride but her maids of honour. The floral arrangements you choose will be seen by everyone throughout the day so it is imperative that you get the right mix of simplicity and style.

One of the biggest floral trends of 2016 already is undoubtedly the ‘fresh and wild’ aesthetic. Couples are looking for the best arrangements of local and in season flowers to give their wedding a unique and natural vibe. These freshly picked free form bouquets look beautifully elegant as centrepieces and venue decorations. The uniqueness of each bouquet for each table really stands out to guests and will be something they won’t soon forget.

Tonal explosions are also a timeless classic which are really on trend this year. By using a variety of tones of the same colour, your centre pieces will really stand out. The flowers can be a mixture picked out by your florist or the same, but creating this ombré effect will instantly catch the attention of your guests. This effect usually works best with reds and pinks as there is such a vivid spectrum of colour.

Sometimes the beauty of the flowers alone isn’t enough to catch the attention of your guests so you might want to try infusing your floral arrangements. Asking your florist to include hints of mint, basil, cocoa beans or anything that suits your venues theme will ensure your special day is remembered forever. Anytime your guests smell the sweet aroma your arrangements were infused with, they will be taken back to memories of that day.

Alternatively, some couples are opting out of using flowers altogether and are looking for slightly more cost effective options. Branches with newly blooming flowers such as cherry blossoms or pussy willows make beautifully simplistic yet elegant centre pieces as well as perhaps hand decorated branches with jewels or handmade flowers. Even using plants and leaves can become focal points of your weddings décor if dressed correctly.

Floral arrangement ideas can often become overwhelming and you know that they all would look beautiful so you just can’t decide. In this instance you may want to consider using them all. Not all of your tables need to look the same and can be uniquely beautiful in their own way. Mix and matching everything until you’re happy is definitely one of the best floral trends of this year.
