If you’re planning your wedding flowers, then you’ll need to know what the hottest up-and-coming trends are! Wedding planning experts Guides for Brides share their favourite wedding flower trends for 2020…
Don’t miss the gorgeous floral displays from top UK florists at The National Wedding Shows this season, take a look at #TNWS florists here.
Eco-friendly weddings are on the rise, and this extends to wedding flowers too. Rather than spending a fortune flying in out of season flowers, brides are choosing British-grown blooms to reduce the carbon footprint (and save some money in the process!). The UK is home to plenty of gorgeous seasonal wedding flowers, so ask your wedding florist to work with homegrown blooms to keep things green.
From spilling floral urns to potted plants to sprayed branches, using flowers to line your aisles is the perfect way to immediately aid impact to your wedding ceremony decor. This wedding flower trend works for all seasons and can transform your ceremony room, plus the arrangements can easily be moved after the ceremony to decorate other parts of the venue.
While you might not recognise the name, you’ll definitely recognise this hot wedding flower trend! Moongates are circular floral arrangements that first started appearing at wedding shows in 2019, and now they’re popular both in the US and UK. They’re a great way to add a backdrop to your wedding ceremony and behind the top table, and don’t have to cost the earth either. While you can opt for a full floral version, you can also place just a few clusters of flowers or foliage to get a more minimal effect.
The easiest way to save money on your wedding flowers is to create a statement with just a few stems, and we’re seeing more and more brides try this trend. Large flowers like sunflowers, protea and amaryllis can help your wedding bouquets and arrangements look lush and full, and just a few stems of hydrangea or a couple of succulents make for a ready-made wedding centerpiece.
Wild and free
Kate Middleton’s demure posy of lily of the valley sparked a trend for simple and sweet wedding bouquets back in 2011, but for 2020 we’re seeing wedding flower trends heading in the opposite direction. Wedding bouquets are bigger than ever, with an unstructured, wild feel, and plenty of foliage. We’re even seeing pampas grasses, feathers and vines added to wedding bouquets for a boho effect.
