2020 served up plenty of challenges to couples planning their weddings, but 2021 is ready to take off with fantastic new floral trends to make your celebration memorable. Here are the top trends coming your way this year:
Bold Color – 2021 brides are looking to make a bold color statement to escape the blandness of the past year. Think hyper-colored statement flowers in a range not usually seen in nature. Skilled florists are able to adjust the colors of flowers and leaves to almost any color in the rainbow, so expect bright orange palm leaves in bridal bouquets, or clouds of teal baby’s breath in floral chandeliers. The look is mood-boosting, vibrant, and cheerful.
Dried Flowers – Ethical sourcing, repurposing, and sustainability continue to be important to couples in the following year. With that in mind, dried flowers remain a huge trend for the upcoming season. The look lends itself well to minimalist or boho aesthetics, and brides can take advantage of many “traditional” flowers that can be used this way. Eucalyptus and baby’s breath are staples of this look, and lavender and roses have the benefit of retaining their fragrance when dried. After your bash, the flowers are easily transformed into a long-lasting keepsake for the couple.
Promenade – Referencing the ethereal grace of Britain’s Edwardian era, the “Promenade” look “tells a story of light pastels and golden honey hues that cast warmth,” according to Marti Boone of Florist’s Review. Be on the lookout for luminous neutrals like blush and sand, as well as pretty details like textured ribbon and rose-gold containers. The vibe is all about majesty, femininity and timelessness.
Statement Décor – Lately, many couples are opting for micro-weddings. This means a hard focus on what’s important to the couple, and that is translating into over-the-top installations like floral chandeliers, walls and nooks. If the number of guests is limited, an Insta-worthy backdrop for your photos may be a way to share your bash with the world. Luckily, all of the above trends can be incorporated into these statement pieces, for a doubly on-trend look.
