Wedding Flower Trends 2019
Wedding flowers are always a big deal when planning a wedding. Colour, arrangement, and aesthetic are all factors that a bride needs to keep in mind while making this important decision. The possibilities are endless and ever changing, so what’s in store for wedding flowers in 2019?
A Pop Of Colour
Generally speaking, the two main aspects that add colour to a wedding are bridesmaid’s dresses and flowers. It helps to set the tone for weddings, so knowing what is on trend is helpful.
Pantone’s Colour Of The Year
Every artist, designer, and florist in the world waits with bated breath to see what Pantone names as their colour of the year. Be it “Marsala” in 2015 or “Greenery” for 2017, Pantone sets the tone for colour for the year. The colour for 2019 is “Living Coral”, an enchanting shade of orange that is sure to draw the eye. Be it charm peonies or roses; coral wedding flowers are sure to make any wedding unforgettable.
Coral is a gorgeous and fun, but very specific hue that might not appeal to everyone’s taste. A more muted shade like a plum or burgundy splashed with sage green or pale pink will add a sense of elegant romance to any bride’s nuptials.
A Nice Day For A White Wedding
White wedding flowers have long been a symbol of fertility, fidelity, and beauty. As far back as the Roman times, white blooms were used to symbolise all those things and more. However, instead of the usual calla lilies, roses or tulips, freesias or lily of the valley are a beautiful way to do something different but still preserve a time-honoured look.
Pretty In Pink
Different shades of pink have been a classic shade for weddings for years, and 2019 is no different. As well as being the shade most associated with roses, pink is timeless, charming, and playful. David Austin roses come in almost every shade you can think of from soft blush to brilliant magenta, and everything in between. The only difficult choice is whether to choose true rose pink or pink lightly tinged with apricot or lilac.
For a beautifully diverse flower, you can’t go wrong with hydrangeas. Perfect in pretty pastels or beautiful in bold shades, these lovely, tasteful blooms can be used in bouquets, arbour, or centrepieces.
Floral installations are nothing new. From flower walls to arbours (arches), they have long been an opulent addition to a lavish wedding. Meticulously crafted hanging flower hoops, floral chandeliers, and flowers cascading down a staircase like a floral waterfall could negate the need for large centrepieces, making a structural option the focus at a wedding venue.
Rustic weddings have been a trend for quite some time now, bringing with it the foliage trend. This will continue into 2019, although blooms will begin to creep back in amongst the greenery in 2019. The simplicity of a large, single flower surrounded by emerald green foliage will continue to bring the outside in and bring focus without being overwhelming.
Wonderful Wedding Flowers
Peonies have been a fashionable wedding flower for quite some time now, but they aren’t in season year-round. While peonies are a lovely late spring/ early summer blossom, dahlias in the late summer are absolutely sublime, and ranunculas in the winter or spring are breathtaking.
What flowers have you decided on for your wedding in 2019 (or even later?). I’d love to know, so let me know in the comments!
