Top Wedding Flower Trends for 2018

Monday, 08 January 2018 15:39

A new year has arrived and with it, lots of new wedding ideas! We have collected some predictions from the pros so you can create your perfect wedding style. Say goodbye 2017…the new year is coming in with a bang!

Hanging Flowers

We started seeing this trend emerge last fall, but it’s really going to shine in 2018! Not only do hanging flowers provide a fantastic visual element to your decor, but they’re practical too. Instead of cluttering your table with garlands, they allow space for more important things like beautiful dinnerware and champagne. These arrangements look amazing if they’re kept a bit wild with hanging vines and a variety of brightly colored blooms.

Drama, Drama, Drama

Couples are leaning more towards the formal side of things this year, says wedding planner Nora Sheils of Bridal Bliss in the Pacific Northwest. This means rustic and casual decor is making room for tall flower centerpieces with lots of drama. Gone are the days of understated mason jar arrangements, brides want glamour with luxurious blooms in bold colors- don’t be shy!

Floral Updates

When thinking about your florals, don’t forget about what you will be displaying them in. The vases add character to your arrangement so be creative! Brides are using vintage vases, colored glass, geometric shapes and even concrete to show of their style this year.

Ultra Violet

The new Pantone colour of the year is Ultra Violet, and it’s going to be everywhere in wedding decor! Described as “inventive and imaginative, lighting the way to what is yet to come” by Leatrice Eiseman, Executive DIrector of the Pantone Institute, this is a bold color. You can find most flower varieties in a similar shade such as purple mini carnations and dahlias. Move over greenery, there’s a new kid in town.

But Greenery Still…

Greenery will still be present in a big way this year, just revamped. The trend is leaning more towards woodsy glam rather than rustic chic, says Taylor Green of Taylor Elise Events. Think wooden accents instead of burlap. Bohemian brides are also loving wreaths made of Eucalyptus and wild flowers as an alternative to traditional flowers. So don’t worry, greenery isn’t going anywhere anytime soon!

Expert Wedding Planning: Four Tips and Tricks

Monday, 18 December 2017 19:40

A talented planner is a gift you give yourself…and then wonder how you ever thought you could manage without one.”-Author Unknown

Planning a wedding can be difficult. With so many details to take into consideration, it’s easy to see why so many brides-to-be feel overwhelmed with the process. After all, you’re planning the biggest party of your life and you want it to be perfect.

While there is no guarantee that your wedding will run as smoothly as you want it to, there are some tips and tricks you can employ to ensure that everything goes according to plan. From choosing the right catering packages to ensuring you select only the best wedding vendors, here are a few tips to help get you started:

1.) Don’t rush

When you first get engaged, you might be excited to start planning right away. However, you should take a minute to talk to your fiancé about what you both envision for the big day. Relax, breathe and take your time. Yes, it is an exciting moment in your life but it is actually best to bask in your newly engaged bliss, check out what your options are and then weigh them. Brainstorm, think things through and consider all the logistics of planning an event as big as a wedding.

2.) Look at the big picture

Before you start planning the seating chart and appetizer menu, think of the more general logistics of your wedding. Do you want it outdoors or indoors? Where do you want the wedding venue to be? What kind of theme do you have in mind? When you have all these, you can then work inward towards the specifics.

3.) Know your budget

Every wedding needs a budget. This needs to be very clear as expenses can start to get out of control very quickly. In order stay realistic about your budget, make a list, outlining your wants and needs from highest to lowest priority. This will help you visualize what needs to be budgeted for, and what can go if necessary. Remember, the needs are things that should absolutely be present in your wedding while the wants are things you can do without.

4.) Research

Now that you have a list of priorities and a budget in mind, it’s time to start doing some research on potential vendors. Ask former brides, check reviews and schedule meetings to make sure each service is the right fit for you. Are flowers high on your priority list? Look for a florist that not only has a wide selection, but is cost effective. Look for one that purchases their flowers right from the farm like Bunches Direct. This way the middleman is eliminated and you save money. Research will also help you determine back-up plans for each scenario such as bad weather or your D.J. getting sick. Always have a plan B!

We know that these steps are certainly not the most exciting part about planning a wedding, but they are certainly the most important. The more preparation you do before booking a venue or vendor, will help the process be more enjoyable for you and everyone involved.

Bonus tip: Have fun! Don’t let all the stress of organizing logistics stand between you and your fiancé’s enjoyment of  this special time in your lives. Slow down, take it all in and remember that this day is a celebration of how much you truly love each other!

Holiday Wedding Ideas

Monday, 11 December 2017 16:35

There are many benefits to having your wedding during the winter months… vendors tend to be less expensive, the atmosphere is festive and most of all…it makes a gorgeous backdrop for your decor. Whether you love the charm of a rustic Christmas theme or are looking for a more glamorous affair, snowy scenery will allow your florals to pop!

For a rustic affair, keep floral hues warm and inviting. Deep berry tones, rich creams and burnt oranges will pop against the crisp white backdrop of winter. Don’t be too formal with your arrangements. Think flowing, wild bouquets, which will feel much more organic. Include lots of greenery such as Evergreen bows and Eucalyptus to decorate your altar and aisle, or even your cake! These greens will help add a subtly festive feel to your big day.

Creating a Not So Scary Halloween Wedding

Thursday, 26 October 2017 20:36

If you’re planning on celebrating your nuptials with the ghosts and ghouls on All Hallows’ Eve, there are some easy ways to avoid the whole thing turning into a fright fest. Halloween-themed weddings are about creating moodiness and playing up Gothic details. The idea that you need Jack-O-Lanterns and candy bars is just a bunch of Hocus Pocus.

Choose your theme

Yes, you’ve chosen a Halloween theme, but that can be interpreted in many different ways.

One idea that’s on trend is throwing a mysterious masquerade ball. Keep things sophisticated and formal with the groomsmen wearing black suits and your ladies in rich jewel tones like Sapphire or Amethyst. Everyone gets to wear a beautiful mask, which will put everyone in the Halloween mood. Class things up with lots of antique gold details and lots of candles.
