Wedding Floral Trends: What Experts Say

When you allow yourself to trust your wedding vendors, you’ll enjoy the planning process so much more. Working with your floral designer should be a creative collaboration, with you sharing your vision and then letting your designer bring it to life with the right decor selections and materials.

Florals are often, mistakenly, a place where brides feel compelled to DIY. But some things are better left to the experts. Your floral designer is dedicated to knowing the trends and doing them well but is also well-versed in seasonal availability as well as design, delivery, and installation.

We sat down with Heather Christian Floger of Heather Christian Designs to learn some of her floral wisdom. If you’re looking for some wedding flower power, stick with us!

Bouquets and centerpieces are common wedding arrangements. What are some other areas where couples should add flowers?

The ceremony focal point, along with the aisle, are two areas that benefit from flowers. The ceremony location is one of the most highly photographed areas. There are arches of all shapes and sizes and floral design can range from minimalist to bountiful. Or go with classic pillars and arrangements. You can repurpose your ceremony decor into your reception, too. We really try to work with our couples to create something beautiful that really represents their individual style.

What are some key considerations a couple should keep in mind when choosing their wedding florist?

I always advise clients to look over their prospective floral designer’s website and social media to see if they like their overall style. Next, you’ll want to read their reviews and make sure they are experienced and reliable. Then, it’s really a matter of seeing how that floral designer interprets your vision with their proposal. It’s so important, when choosing ALL of your wedding vendors, that you go with people who really care about weddings, who have a passion for them, and who want to exceed your expectations.

What should couples know about floral design trends when it comes to weddings?

Interior design, fashion, and even popular TV shows can start a wedding floral trend. Pantone annually announces a “Color of the Year”. You’ll see everything from boho chic to incredible elegance, vibrant colors, and delicate hues. The choice is totally yours. Collaborate with your florist to blend your wedding colors into ceremony statements, wedding party flowers, and beautiful table decor. And the one floral design trend that never goes out of style? Repurpose – from ceremony to reception. Then have those flowers delivered to patients in a hospital or nursing home to brighten up their day!

Finding your trusted vendors can sometimes be an intimidating task, but don’t let that stop you from achieving your dreams for your big day. A big thank you to Heather of Heather Christian Designs for sharing her thoughts and passions with us!
