Bridal bouquet trends to watch
April 27th, 2016 by admin
For most brides, the flowers they carry are almost as important as their wedding dress – especially for garden weddings. At WatervieW in Bicentennial Park, we see some amazing and beautiful bridal bouquets. Here’s a summary of the trends we have spotted recently.
Subtly different, tone-on-tone effects
Many brides are choosing several different types of flowers, all in the same shade for their wedding bouquet. The slight colour variation between the floral varieties gives the bouquet a more textured look than an arrangement using only one type of flower. We have seen this type of arrangement in many different colour waves and each one looks great.
Organic, unstructured shapes
Another trend we are seeing is a move away from structured floral arrangements to more natural looking ones. There is usually a mixture of heights and types of flowers to give an organic, freshly picked appearance. This look often has trailing ribbons or foliage to add to the unstructured look of the bouquet.
Vines, leaves and berries
Brides are becoming more creative with their bouquets by including lots of foliage, berries and even budding vines to add colour, texture and interest to their flowers. This type of arrangement looks brilliant with informal or vintage styled wedding décor.
Blush and pink tones mixed with white
For traditional or more formal weddings, many brides are choosing to carry flowers in blush, pale pink and white. This colour combination works beautifully against white, ivory, antique lace and blush coloured wedding dresses. It is a soft, feminine look for weddings with a vintage feel.
Eco-friendly, seasonal bouquets
When it comes to price and freshness, florists always recommend selecting seasonal blooms that are locally sourced. This philosophy also extends to eco-conscious brides. Many choose native Australian flowers for their bouquets while others simply ask their florist to recommend the best seasonal blooms for their wedding day.

Couples wanting a garden wedding love WatervieW in Bicentennial Park. Surrounded by magnificent trees, parklands and waterways, it’s a beautiful location at any time of the year.
