‘Everything old is new again’ is still one of the hottest wedding trends around. Nostalgia over beautiful black and white photos of our grandparent’s (or great grandparent’s) wedding day only adds to the inspiration for wedding flowers and theming.
If you are a fan of the fabulous roaring 20’s era and considering incorporating 1920’s style wedding flowers, take a look at some of these beautiful wedding bouquets, old and new, below for inspiration.
Roses are a clear trend for 1920’s style wedding flowers, as are Asiatic lilies and calla lilies. A large number of wedding bouquets are ‘super sized’ and ‘grand’, taking centre stage. Fine, voluminous strands of foliage such as fern and ivy, flow to the ground, as do multitudes of cascading ribbon strands with dainty flowers tied onto them. And the shape – wide, oblong bouquets dripping long tendrils of foliage from each end, rather than from the centre, that is typical of contemporary wedding bouquets. Alternatively, flat-backed sheafs (particularly the art deco favourite, lilies) show prominence, resting on the crook of a bride’s arm.
Contemporary, 1920’s inspired wedding bouquets are so hot right now. They may not all display the grandiose size of the original styles, and the trailing ribbons with flowers tied in them hasn’t really been taken up, but the wide, oblong shape and loose, wild, foliage filled bouquets are super popular. Wedding bouquets with splash of drama and a touch of the avant-garde express a glorious and stunning modern-day take on a classic era.
