Fashionable Florals
by: The West Australian Wedding Guide



Just like everything else wedding flower arrangements move with the times so what was popular a couple of years ago no longer makes an appearance at today’s weddings.
Single colour bouquets are in, plain boutonnieres are out and floral crowns are all the rage.
Pastel bouquets are back in a big way and bunches of different flowers in the same hue add a vibrant splash of colour.
Matching your bouquet to the season sets a great overall tone. Bright colours for spring, faded oranges for autumn, pastels for summer and blues and purples for winter create the perfect seasonal atmosphere.
Rustic bouquets are trending right now with popular inclusions of sunflowers, baby’s breath, daisies and lavender.
 
A growing floral craze among brides is the inclusion of the flower crown, and with good reason they look stunning.
Fresh flowers look lovely and elegant included in an up-do or keep your hair down and loosely curled for a truly romantic style.
As for what to include in your wreath you can choose to keep it simple with a delicate wreath of baby’s breath or stand out with large colourful flowers that complement your bouquet.
The smallest (and probably least thought about) floral arrangement at your wedding will be the boutonnieres of the groom and his groomsmen but that doesn't mean they're not important.
Traditionally the boutonniere is worn on the jacket's left lapel and the groomsmen will all match.
Today boutonnieres can be so much more than just a flower; they can include ribbon, buttons, or a bit of greenery so it's almost like a mini bouquet. Even go for paper flowers so they'll be sure to last.
