Timeline Brides and grooms should book their florist one year in advance. To stay up-to-date with current trends, Lynne says that final decisions can be made three to four weeks before the wedding. Colour While blush, white, and ivory are always floral favourites, this year neutral colours will be paired with colours that add complexity and depth – softer colours like sunset orange and coral are popular, while they can also be paired with deeper, berry-toned blooms.

Head Table Décor Sophia Georgiou, a co-owner of Julia Flowers, says, “A lot of girls are keeping it simple with lit candles and their bouquets from the bridal party. We also do luscious head table arrangements with garlands of flowers going right across.”

Stems With free-flowing floral arrangements also comes the desire for an all-natural look, and so brides are leaving stems be shown rather than all wrapped up. Stems that are left raw can be bound lightly with ribbon or lace. Boutonnieres Many grooms are choosing berries over blooms this year to liven up their lapel. Snowberries, hypericum berries, tallow berries, or even citrus can be used depending on the colour of the groom’s tie (and season, of course)!

Bouquets Traditional, tightly bound bouquets are officially on their way out in favour of fuller, flowing flowers and foliage. To add texture to bouquets, long, cascading ribbons of complementary colours are the perfect way to add a wow factor into the arrangement.
