It’s the flowers that really complete a wedding. Many brides carry a bridal bouquet, but this is only the beginning. After all, flowers create a beautiful background that’s perfect for capturing those special moments in pictures. And the trend this year? The more flowers the better! This article provides this year’s most popular floral decoration trends for your wedding.

A focus on flowers

In recent years, flower arrangements have included lots of foliage material; this year, the focus is fully on the flowers themselves. Not that cut foliage is being eliminated completely; instead, it will be used more to supplement the flowers.

The tropical trend

The tropical trend has been with us for a while now and it’s still going strong this year. This is where the two previously mentioned trends get together: lots of flowers, foliage and colour! Why not incorporate this in your table decorations? Use tropical leaves as place card holders and place a mini vase with colourful flowers next to some and a small pineapple next to the others. Add some large plants and it will feel as if you’re in the tropics!

A flower crown

We wrote about this recently: the flower crown is making a big comeback! In recent years it’s often been spotted at festivals and parties. And now at weddings as well! As a bride, you naturally want to be the radiant centre of attention on your big day, and wearing a flower crown will put you right in the spotlight. It also provides a very pretty contrast with a white gown. Just remember: if you choose to wear a flower crown and also carry a bridal bouquet, make sure to coordinate these two accessories.

Flowers as a backdrop

Flowers are also being used more frequently as a backdrop. This could be a wall, a platform or a wreath filled with flowers. You could use this as a background for your photo booth, for example, but also as a background during the ceremony itself. The latter ensures that any photos taken when saying ‘I do’ will be extra special.
