Getting married this year, and looking for the perfect, on-trend bridal bouquet? Look no further. Here is your guide to stunning flower bouquet trends for 2014.
Carnations, baby’s breath, dahlias, posies, hydrangeas, peonies and fragrant roses are all back in vogue with a vintage flavour.
Look for fragrant heirloom varieties of English garden flowers in a muted colour palette to recreate a traditional bouquet with flair. Personalise your bunch by wrapping vintage lace around the stems affixed with an antique brooch.
A bunch of stunning succulents, carefully-selected and arranged, is an ideal bouquet for the environmentally-conscious bride. An arrangement of thick-petal succulent rosettes can be wired together to form an eye-catching bouquet that will last for several weeks.
Fill in the gaps with eucalyptus or lavender, and give your succulent bouquet a touch of something special with a touch of gold leaf on the tips of each rosette.
Greens and Foliage
For the non-traditional bridal bouquet, an arrangement of natural green foliage can be a stunning bunch when constructed artfully. Choose from a variety of green hues, interspersed with small blooms, buds and native bush berries.
Fern fronds, grasses and green shrubbery can all be combined to create a striking bouquet against a white wedding dress. Squeeze in a pheasant feather or two for an on-trend, boho bouquet.
Many brides are opting for wearable flowers, with floral crowns and hair adornment a very popular trend in 2014. Perfect for a contemporary country wedding, a floral headpiece can be as simple as a few dainty little traditional blooms and foliage woven through a braid.
For a bride with a bold personality, go for a eclectic selection of bright blooms and foliage woven into a half crown. An assortment of natives would make a perfect headpiece for a spring wedding.
The Edible Bouquet
Think herbs, berries, edible flowers, like nasturtiums, and colourful leafy vegetables, like rainbow chard and variegated cos lettuce leaves. The sacred geometry of broccoli romanesco makes for a stunning feature piece.
An ideal bunch for the chef or foodie, the scent of fresh culinary herbs wafting down the aisle will get your guests in the mood for a gourmet wedding feast.
So for a unique, trending bridal bouquet in 2014, consider a stylish and well-selected bunch of edibles, succulents, foliage or traditional blooms, or make a statement with a floral crown or hair adorement, like from Janine Florist. If you really want to wow your guests, why not artfully combine them all?
