For all of our excited brides who have weddings approaching, or for those of you who are planning other key events, choosing your flowers will be a big part of your process. As we ring in a new year, let’s take a look at what’s hot in flower trends for 2016! We’ve added a few suggestions from BunchesDirect, but there are many more at the website so be sure to look over all the options or call in and let one of our consultants guide you.
Back to Nature. Less formal “gathered from the garden” looks will become more and more popular for 2016. This trend sees some brides and event planners using less structured bouquets and arrangements and opting instead for a looser, more textural gathering of assorted blooms. If you love a more relaxed garden or country style then this trend is for you!
Exotic and Vibrant. More of this year’s brides will be opting for flowers in vivid, saturated hues rather than only pastels. If you love pops of rich colour, then this trend is perfect for you. Choose bright mixes of blooms such as vivid yellow sunflowers, bright red roses and orange gerberas, and give your wedding or event a very vibrant and energetic feel. Try Orange Mist Bouquet, Passionate Smile Bouquet, or a stunning Romantic Rush Bouquet.
Get the Blues. Your wedding or event will be very on trend for 2016 if you opt for blue: all shades of blues are gaining in popularity and are going to be a hot item for this year. Your wedding or event will be very on trend if you opt for blue. You can pair blue bridesmaid dresses or table accents with blue flowers, or create contrast with cream and white or purple flowers (another hot color trend this year!).
Dramatic Jewel Tones. Deep jewel tones, plums, reds, hot pinks, with hits of metallic or shimmer is another hot trend this year. Many brides are opting for larger, cascading bouquets or lush centerpieces in these rich tones. Best of all, with BunchesDirect, it’s possible to achieve this look without spending a fortune to do it!
Sorbet. Flowers in pale shades of mint, lemon, peach and raspberry are another hot trend for 2016. Mix these shades together in your decorating palette using linens, your wedding party clothing, and other accents and select flowers to complement. BunchesDirect picks:
