This got me thinking about wedding flowers and how many options there are for brides and grooms planning a wedding. Being a wedding photographer, I like to stay abreast of the trends each year. I thought I'd take a minute to share some ideas about different styles of wedding flowers.
Soft and Romantic. The soft, romantic bouquet is made up of soft colored garden flowers, such as pastel roses and other dainty flowers. This bouquet is intended to offer a delicate fantasy look, and contribute to a soft ambiance.
The Playful Bouquet. If you are looking to convey originality and spunk, consider using a design with a playful and bright color scheme. Colours such as hot pink, navy blue, and magenta, not only offer a modern appeal, they also help create a fun and playful ambiance, which breaks free from tradition. In addition, you may consider choosing a brilliant color, such as yellow for example, with accent colors such as black or silver, in order to make the primary color stand out. By mixing different hues a vibrant bouquet can be created which will complement the fun, playful bride.
The Green Bouquet. The green bouquet is achieved through organic form and colors that offer an airy, free-flowing look. Complimentary and contrasting foliage and branching is used, giving the overall look a simple, elegant appearance.
The Passion Bouquet. For many years, the colour red has illustrated love, passion and romance, especially as it pertains to marriage and weddings. The red and white bouquet is not only a trend for 2012, it is also a timeless design that can be both traditional or contemporary.
These are just a few of the styles that appear to be "hot" for a 2012 wedding. I posted some of our wedding photography showcasing each of these styles below. Happy Planning!
