When you work in a flower shop you hear a lot of brides talk about planning their wedding. It seems that a common struggle for brides-to-be is settling on a specific style for their wedding. Having an overarching style for your wedding is important for providing unity between your dress, the wedding party’s attire, decorations, flowers etc. Some people shy away from a style because they think it is too confining, but a style really just provides you with inspiration. You can mix elements of different styles in to the subtle details of your wedding for a surprising twist. Here are 4 different styles to consider.
The staple of this style is clean lines with delicate details. Look to Coco Chanel and Katherine Hepburn for inspiration. Pearls are sure to be found around the bride’s neck. The ultra traditional bride may opt for an all white wedding which will add to the clean elegance of this style. The classic wedding definitely lends itself to a more formal affair perhaps set in a country club or ballroom. Orchids are a popular choice to include in a classic wedding.
This style draws its inspiration from the earth and oozes with country charm. This style is very versatile that can be used for anything from a fall wedding with rich golds, reds, and greens to a spring affair with soft pinks and creams. You can also go in a more country direction with hay bales and corn stalks or opt for a woodland feel with wild flower crowns and manzanita tree centerpieces.
Dreamy lace, soft pastels, and bird cages are all things you will find at an English Garden inspired wedding. This style begs for an outdoor setting preferably in, well, a garden. Perhaps one of the most romantic of all the styles the English Garden wedding is full of ruffles and frills. Peonies, Hydrangeas, and garden roses will most certainly be present on the tables and in the bouquets.
The style for the trendsetting bride. Modern weddings are full of sleek details that push the envelope of originality. A modern wedding often includes a somewhat neutral color scheme with pops of bright tangerine or aqua thrown in at unexpected places. Fun floral & feather hairpieces can often be seen at an event like this. The type of flower is not as important as how they are arranged. The modern bride opts for fun and unique arrangements that are out of the ordinary.
There you go, happy wedding planning everyone!
