Floral Trends for Wedding Season 2016 By Katherine McCloskey
pring is here and wedding season is fast approaching. This year, brides are looking for less traditional pieces and moving towards something a little more edgy. Locally grown organic flowers that give great shape and texture (while being a little kinder to the planet) are gaining mass popularity. A trend that will not being leaving anytime soon are loose, asymmetrical bouquets including unusual flowers mixed with beautiful blooms like peonies, anemones and roses. Pastels with pops of colour like midnight blue, marsala and forest green will make an appearance throughout the season. There will be sight of light and airy arrangements that spill over metallic vases provide a luxurious yet modern feel. Greenery in different colours and textures ranging from mints and sage to dark emeralds will be worked into arrangements and wedding bouquets as well. Garlands are also replacing the traditional centre pieces and backdrops, as many are choosing different table sizes and going for a more natural look over the structured aesthetic.
