What are the key floral trends for 2020?
More exotic blooms such as orchids, anthirriums, protea are becoming hugely popular mixed with softer flowing textures such as pampas grass or bleached ruscus and even dried materials like seedheads. All put together in a wild and whimsical free form look. Plus look out for more big impact installations! One large installation gives guests a focal point and something to remember.
Classic Blue is the 2020 Pantone Colour of the Year, it’s a deep rich jewel tone and whilst this is a shift towards more traditional tones when it comes to bridesmaid dresses etc. When blues are toned with blushes in the flowers it can make for a stunning statement!
What are some of the most important factors for a couple to consider when choosing their wedding flowers?
It’s never ‘like for like’ with wedding flowers. Each designer has their own style, creativity and pricing to reflect this. Do your research, look at their portfolio of previous work on Instagram, Facebook and their own website. Ask for word of mouth recommendations and try to meet up in person. You need to make sure you trust your florist to bring your floral vision to reality, it should never be just a direct comparison of prices!
Your wedding bouquets are the one key thing you don’t get to see until the morning of the wedding and if you are disappointed, it’s just too late. In fact the florist’s delivery is a key moment of the morning preparations often captured by the photographer/videographer and it should be a magical show of joyful emotions. Make sure you book the best floral designer your budget can stretch to. Remember after your dresses, flowers are the most visual representation of your wedding and captured in nearly all your photos. They are your accessory for the day!
Ask if your florist offers a bespoke service, setting up venue flowers for the church service or ceremony and moving or repositioning floral arrangements afterwards in the reception to make sure you get maximum floral value for your budget.
At Ditsy Floral Design the morning of your wedding will see me arrive with your bouquets and guide you and your bridesmaids through how to hold and showcase your flowers. I then set up the church or ceremony florals and meet the boys and pin on their buttonholes. Afterwards I will move any flowers onto the venue for the reception.
Ditsy Floral Design only works on one wedding per weekend so you can be assured of my attention and dedication to ensuring your flowers are perfect!
