Our floral design team are busy browsing local and international blogs and magazines for inspiration on 2014 wedding flower trends. Check out some of our favourite country-themed wedding flower ideas for 2013-2014 below. We are super excited about theming country, garden, barn and vineyard weddings scheduled over the summer season and beyond with these gorgeous designs!
Succulents add texture, depth and interest to wedding bouquets, buttonholes and corsages, table centrepieces and chair decorations. They are also ideal for the hot Australian summer wedding season, when flowers are prone to wilting in the heat. Succulent colours and shapes are diverse and abstract, from lime green and silver to soft pink and dark chocolate, spiky and twisted to rounded and ‘rose-like’.
For a country theme wedding, succulent heads look particularly gorgeous mixed with romantic cottage-garden blooms, wildflowers, herbs and native ferns, and their colourings are neutral enough to blend with any palette theme.
Think woodland nymph. Floral headpieces, from sweet and dainty numbers to extravagant avant-garde showstoppers are trending in weddings all around the world.
Perfect for a bush or country-themed wedding, floral headpieces are a fantastic way to express a bride’s individual style and personality. Ask for a full circle or ‘half-crown’ depending on the look you are after.
According to online UK weddings website http://www.weddingideasmag.com, trailing florals are set to trend.
UK florist ‘The Flower House’ predicts that “soft greens and creams will be go-to colour choices for 2014 brides, with bouquet styles becoming looser.
“The trend will definitely be towards more trailing designs rather than the massed, hand tied styles of previous years”, claim The Flower House.
“Soft flowing flowers such as clematis and jasmine suit this kind of bouquet beautifully. Succulents are also becoming popular and can make an unusual but striking display.”
And be rest assured ‘vintage’ is not going anywhere in a hurry, with brides still not able to get enough of this look. Antique colour palettes, handles wrapped in vintage lace and heirlooms, and loose flowing bouquets and posies reminiscent of generations-past family wedding images. Trailing, vintage and free-flowing effects can be created for a country-themed wedding, whether you opt for a mix of English garden-like flowers or Australian natives and wildflowers.
