Changing Styles in Wedding Flowers, This Seasons Favorite Style
This year has seen a shift in fashion and trends in what the modern day bride (and groom) wants from their wedding flowers.
Wedding flowers are such an emotional and critical choice that a bride (and family) have to make, that is unless you stick with the popular white or ivory.
This year has seen a shift in fashion and trends in what the modern day bride (and groom) wants from their wedding flowers. In the past we saw a plethora of subtle colours that largely matched in with the ivory theme of most weddings however this is changing fast!
In 2010 there have been a larger number than average of people choosing silk flowers, and wedding flowers in part due to the rising cost of quality real flowers. Many of our real flowers are grown abroad in South Africa and Holland and the increases in fuel costs and overall downturn in suppliers means that real flowers have become more expensive at the florists.
Silk flowers also offer a wide range of alternative styles and colours than real flowers and we have seen many (mainly young) couples choose much more vibrant and “avant-garde” colours and styles of flowers than ever before.
In 2008-9 there was a surge in people wanting blue, in 2010 the biggest colour growth has come from deep burgundy’s, deep reds and hot orange.
