Top 5 wedding bouquet trends for 2019

A beautiful wedding bouquet really can be the cherry on top of the cake.

A beautiful wedding bouquet really can be the cherry on top of the cake. Although a seemingly small part of wedding preparation, choosing the perfect bouquet can take some time – particularly if you’re looking to keep up-to-date with current trends. This year’s top wedding bouquet trends speak to a wide range of floral preferences – from minimalism to a cascading array of bright colours.

A single flower amongst an abundance of foliage
This year, we’re seeing something completely different. Rather than gathering together a bunch of flowers, many brides are choosing one statement, large flower, and surrounding it with a bouquet of greenery. The astounding beauty of this unbelievably simple flower arrangement is undeniable, and fits in perfectly with the emphasis that modern society is putting on our natural surrounds.

Minimalism
It seems as though the minimalism trend is stretching far beyond interior design in 2019. Making its way to wedding bouquets, this trend is being seen amongst brides who are opting for a small selection of flowers of a single type, focusing on the intricate details as opposed to walking down the aisle with a big bouquet of flowers. Paired with a minimalist interior design at the venue, these bouquets can beautifully complement a simplistic style.

Many who still choose a medium-to-large sized bouquet incorporate minimalism by selecting just one or two different types of flower – which is an equally beautiful way to create a simplistic look.

Local and seasonal flowers
At Crumplebury, we’re all about enhancing food provenance, and sourcing locally. We’re delighted to hear that part of this year’s wedding flower trend is using flora that’s sourced locally and seasonally in the bouquet. It seems that many brides are opting to forage their chosen wedding venue, using flowers grown within the location to create a beautifully personalised bunch. This not only allows you to get hands-on in the making of your bouquet, but making the most of local produce is also great for the environment.

Monochrome colours
In contrast to the increasing popularity of minimalism, using striking colours is also becoming a trend for 2019. Brides are also opting for shrubbery with asymmetrical shapes – these are commonly used to form a ‘boho’ style bouquet. Layers in flower arrangements are also becoming popular, with rich textures and cascading flora also being amongst this. If you like minimalism, but are also a fan of rich colours, then why not combine a few single stems with petals that boast bright colours?

Dried flowers/herbs
This is a fascinating yet highly complementary addition to the latest wedding bouquet trends. Dried flowers, such as lavender, add a sophisticated delicacy to bouquets that no fresh flower can. Their fragile nature adds something truly special to a wedding bouquet – not to mention their extremely pleasant scent! Dried botanicals work beautifully either on their own or combined with fresh flowers.

Peak wedding season is almost upon us, and we can’t wait to help give our brides and grooms the wedding day of their dreams. Keep an eye out for the opening of our new venue, Crumplebury, later on this year!
