It’s the time of year for scraping frost off windscreens and cuddling up on the couch under a big doona.
It is also when spring brides are madly organising the final touches to their big day.
Which is why I thought it might be a good time to spark a bit of fiery excitement amongst brides-to-be with a selection of fantastical spring wedding trends and floral inspirations for the upcoming season.
According to popular wedding website The Knot, spring 2014 weddings are all about ‘rose -gold embellishments, toile and ikat patterns, condiments bars and cascade bouquets’, such as these looks pictured below….
The Flowers for Everyone crew have also investigated the spring wedding looks for 2014. Check out their take on the season below. Like what you see? We have even more on our Pinterest Spring Wedding Mood Board.
Big bold flower details on cakes.
According to wedding website www.bridalguide.com, one of their favourite statement-making confectionary trends is the eye-popping floral detail.
“Sugar flowers are old hat, and succulents are de rigueur at indie weddings, but these real and candied creations are taking wedding cakes to new heights!”
“A few sugar flowers are sweet and sophisticated. But a cascade of ombre flowers alongside a creamy fondant ribbon? Jaw-dropping.”
Watermelon, Peach, Cayenne and Coral. Yum.
Hemlock green and peach Cayenne were two of the top Pantone colour trends for 2014, as featured in one of our past colour trend features. Very spring!
Floral Crowns. Big and Boho. A Little Avant-Garde.
As our head bridal designer recently told Bride to Be magazine when interviewed about hot wedding trends in their upcoming edition- it’s all about boho brides and floral crowns this spring. Floral crowns can even be attached to a vintage veil if you want the best of both worlds.
Fruit on Cakes. ‘Naked Cakes’. Foliage on Cakes.
First their was the Naked Chef. Now there are Naked Cakes. The latest wedding cake trend to hit receptions (see Hillary Duff’s cake in our extravagant bridal flower feature) is the plain tiered cake joined together with butter cream and fruit and decorated in fresh flowers. Alternatively, simple fresh foliage on a traditional bridal cake is equally springtime and divine.
Bringing the Outdoors In.
Kate Middleton made it huge. And it isn’t going anywhere. Blossom branches and foliage en-masse is going to be very ‘du jour’ this spring!
