Green chic is also a popular trend. Wildflowers give brides that “rustic” look.  Flowers like poppies, daisies, black-eyed susans, coneflowers, and lavender are popular choices for the eco-conscious bride.

Another popular wedding trend is to mix textures in the floral arrangements. Include organic elements like branches, berries, and various foliage to create interest and contrast. Adding materials like feathers and brooches are also popular with today’s brides.

It just makes these flowers more readily available. After all, it is your once-in-a-lifetime wedding! Choose your favourite colours and flowers and you can’t go wrong!

About Lesley Lowry

I love flowers! I enjoy growing them, learning about them and I love creating bouquets of freshly cut flowers. In our climate where it's winter most of the time, the growing season is way too short, so I have started this blog to get my fix all winter! I encourage you to post regularly on this blog, especially if you're lucky enough to live in a warm climate and can grow flowers all year long. I intend to post a lot of interesting facts and fun stuff about flowers, as well as info on many varieties of flowers.
