When it comes to trends in wedding flowers we constantly have our ear to the ground. The flower world is constantly evolving with new types, colours, design styles and arrangements being introduced all the time. 

Lets take a look at some of this years trends:

Wreaths & Hoops

Without a doubt one of the most popular 2018 wedding flower trends will be wreaths. From massive rings suspended above the altar to bridesmaids carrying wreaths in place of bouquets. What's great about this trend is how easy it is to to personalise to your unique style. Wreaths aren't just for Christmas anymore. Photo credit

Foliage, Foliage and More Foliage.

The every popular foliage trend is still as popular this year as it was last with large displays of fresh green and grey foliage. We would recommend adding in some fresh fragrances for spring with herbs like mint and lemon thyme. For the chillier winter months some soft eucalyptus would be lovely.  Moss is also continuing to play an important part which, when paired with birch creates a beautifully natural lookEucalyptus, apple blossom, jasmine and grape hyacinth all look wonderful with paper-whites.

Foliage-only bouquets and green tables capes are still rising in popularity, with many brides favouring a more natural look.

Ultra Violet Florals

The metallic trend is very hot this year with pearlescent and oyster shell working so well for a spring/summer wedding. Flowers suitable for this trend include deep purple calla lilies ‘Purple Heart’ or the darkest purple possible such as ‘Hot Chocolate’, purple lisianthus ‘Corelli’ or ‘Violet Vixen’, hydrangea with various purple tones like the plummy ‘Purple Prince’, vanda orchids ‘Blue Magic’ and more lilac tones of scabiosa ‘Clive Greaves’ and lilac freesia ‘Blue Bayou’any of these flowers work great with the silver tones of senecio or cinerea eucalyptus.

Hanging Installations

From the hanging foliage on planks over the top table to flower chandeliers, brides are loving this trends and you'll be seeing a lot of these hanging from venue ceilings or marquees. Another popular theme are pampas grass archways – this is more popular in America but it's a trend that has made it's way across the pond. If you scan Pinterest you’ll find some truly amazing arrangements with these grasses.

We recently supplied all the flowers and foliage for the beautiful wedding of Rory & Rachel, including the hanging foliage seen below which decorated their top table.
