10 Popular Wedding Floral Trends


Au Naturel

You don't have to walk down the aisle in your birthday suit to go au naturel. If you're looking for a way to convey a back-to-nature kind of feeling, use local wildflowers for your floral d├ęcor and bouquet. Combinations of daisies, poppies, sunflowers, lilies and baby's breath should be easy to acquire and arrange. The great thing about wildflowers is that, as in nature, they can appear in any color or combination, and they're guaranteed to look great no matter how you organize them. Of course, the specific flowers you use will depend on your location and the season, though this trend is best suited for outdoor ceremonies in the spring, summer and fall.

If you feel like breaking from tradition, try holding onto a single large flower, like a sunflower or a daisy, instead of a full bouquet. This makes for a striking, unique statement that will look great in your wedding photos and is one of those little touches you and all your guests will remember for years to come.

However, this trend isn't for every bride. Au naturel floral schemes only work if the venue and dress are scaled back, too. Walk down the aisle with one sunflower in a luxurious, long-trained gown, and it'll look like you blew all your money on the dress and couldn't afford a real bouquet.
