As generations pass, weddings tend to change stylistically, sometimes dramatically as we are seeing with weddings today. Dresses are becoming more customized, receptions are featuring different games and activities, and popular music is being played more often at ceremonies rather than traditional wedding marches.
Out of all the changes we’ve seen in recent years, we at LUX Wedding Florist have a special interest in the unique styles of contemporary bridal bouquets. These modern bouquets are starting to come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and arrangements. A few of these new bouquet styles include:
The cascading bouquet is fashioned in a way that gives it a falling, overflowing effect, rather than an upward, blooming look. These bouquets still have a traditional vibe, even while they embrace a new, modern style. Some can even be fashioned with wire frames and structures to extend their length even further! Cascading bouquets go well with longer, more flowing dresses, helping to accentuate the flowing effect of the gown. These bouquets look especially fantastic for outdoor weddings as they blend so seamlessly into the surrounding environment. The more local the flower, the more likely the bouquet is to match the ceremony setting. Cascading bouquets are also a great option for brides who want nature to be more present in their indoor venue.
Simple but effective, the single-flower bouquet is ideal if you’re looking to make a statement while still making the most of your wedding budget. They require only one stem of a larger flower, which doesn’t need to be complemented with any auxiliary flowers. The most preferred flowers for this type of bouquet are dahlias, peonies, large garden roses, or a single stem of hydrangea. Match the flower to your gown or choose a complimentary color to make the flowers pop that much more! Though they are growing in popularity, these bouquets are still very unique and not done quite as often as the cascading bouquet.
Classy and exquisite, these virtually unheard-of bouquets are increasing in popularity at an alarming rate. They can be fashioned into almost any style and can use nearly any combination of flowers, making them adaptable. When the flowers are styled in contrast with the fan itself, the effect is enchanting. Imagine all the different customizations that could fit your wedding theme. And let’s be honest, what’s better than having your own personal fan during a hot summer wedding (especially when it has its own lovely fragrance)? Just be careful not to fan too hard!
Circular bouquets are one of the most unusual styles in the wedding world, but they certainly don’t lack in sophistication. Rather than being constructed mainly of flowers, these bouquets get most of their personality from different grasses and stems, which are woven into a circular structure around a center of focus. The outer ring can be constructed from calla lily stems, curly willow, bear grass, or metal wiring. The center and occasionally the sides of these circling vines are usually fitted with flowers. Circular bouquets are absolutely perfect if you’re aiming for a more progressive and unconventional wedding, making it your very own.
These are just a selection of the modern bridal bouquets that will be popular in the new year. We at LUX Wedding Florist are fascinated with new bouquets and are always looking to come up with new, dazzling creations. Whatever the style, we are here to make your ideas and dreams become reality!
