A romantic richness has adorned the wedding day in boldly coloured bridal bouquets and reception floral arrangements.
Following on from the flowery feast we are enjoying in fashion, this vivacious trend will embellish weddings in 2019. After the last few years of white and muted blooms, brides will be choosing pretty pinks through to deep-indigo hues. The wild, freshly picked look is perfect with this exciting trend.
A collage of colour, such as rich-scarlet garden roses, or large-petalled poppies, can really complement a bride’s ruby red lipstick – and look so photogenic against even the simplest white dress. Plush burgundy peonies will be magical for those getting married later in the year.
Greenery still graces the celebratory tables and the reception areas. However, those white stems now make way for more vibrant blooms amongst the leaves. Interesting structural foliage and loud flowers will enchant dresses and tablecloths. Even magenta bougainvillea is a flush of vibrancy to drape amidst the celebration.
In fact, vivid violet, and all renditions of the colour purple, is a hot palette trend that’s invited to the wedding. Hydrangeas, sweet peas, dahlias and purple daisies are set to bedazzle on the big day. Whereas the gentle meandering blooms such as larkspur, delphiniums and sweet peas add a romantic whimsy.
We will also see more colourful floral crowns, as a change from the tiara.
