A Flowery 2015


A Flowery 2015

In the world of weddings, it’s not only clothing fashions that change with the arrival of each new season. In fact, everything from décor to food goes through phases of being in (or out) of vogue.

Wedding flowers also have their moment in the spotlight, and 2015 promises to be a particularly flowery year for brides that are seeking to introduce some beautiful blooms into their wedding ceremonies – particularly those that are tying the knot abroad in tropical destinations like Thailand.

Following the elaborate wedding of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West earlier this year, brides all over the world are emulating the romantic-luxe of the famous couple’s flower arrangements. “This look is all about high flower content,” says expert florist Sabine of G. Lily. “Avoid foliage and exposed stems – instead, choose romantic blooms like hydrangeas, hyacinths and orchids in creamy pastel colours.” she advises.

Wild garden flowers are another look that is predicted to sweep weddings in the New Year, as the ‘just picked from the garden’ trend has remained extremely popular throughout 2014. Experts predict that brides will choose softly-coloured blooms that reflect the gentle tones of a crafted garden and will also choose mixed flowers for bouquets.

Flower crowns are also predicted to rise in popularity next year, according to retailer Passion for Flowers. Depending on the overall feel and theme of your wedding, they can be made from pretty delicate flowers like gypsophila, or a fuller blooms like roses and hydrangeas for more impact. Flower crowns are also a particularly popular choice for beach brides who don’t want long veils to be swept away in the sea breeze.

This year’s hot trend for pastel colours also looks set to continue in 2015. Pastel shades are always popular when the weather begins to get warmer, which means they are often chosen for weddings in warm countries like Thailand.

According to the team at Interflora Vera Wang, soft and creamy colour palettes will remain popular throughout spring and summer 2015.  “Next year is tipped to be one of pale and pastel colours, so we’ve tailored The Vera Wang Wedding Collection by Interflora to deliver these on-trend looks,” reported a representative.
