Here are a few wedding trends from Deborah De La Flor, AIFD.

Brides are looking for “bling” in their bouquets – diamond gems, coloured stones, pearls – tucked in the flowers. Though some brides are asking for trailing or cascade bouquets, hand-tied clusters are still the most popular. Hypericum berries are very popular in bouquets, corsages and boutonnieres. They come in a variety of colours to match any wedding décor. Hydrangeas are also very popular in wedding bouquets – sprigs can be used as

boutonnieres to match. Roses, as always, are the classic wedding flower and continue to maintain their popularity. Glass has become very popular as a container for wedding centerpieces. Single or multiple containers in a variety of shapes, cylinders, squares, rectangles or bubble bowls filled with stones, coloured marbles, glass and cluster style florals, make a definite statement.
