Q4. What are the 2019 trends in terms of types of flowers and foliage brides are choosing, wedding décor styles and anything else they are tending to go for?
Foliage is still very popular for 2019, with the majority of brides choosing a more natural, unstructured look. However, the key word is unstructured, not messy! Lol! The rustic look we are seeing increasingly less or carried out in a much more refined style. Bouquets are becoming more elongated (oval, natural cascades or asymmetric, think lines and reach) with larger feature flowers, such as large headed roses incorporated. Shape is winning over size for 2019. Bouquets are still on the larger side, but shape is definitely leading the charge in the design stakes!
Coral is the Pantone Colour of the Year and has many variations from the palest of powdery peaches to the deepest of rich, almost rust, tones. Other popular and timeless shades, like ivory and blush, are still super popular, alongside more unusual colour combinations like deep red and pink, lilac and rust with a hint of coral. With fresh flowers these unusual combinations just work!
Backdrops and ceremony styling are huge for 2019. Having that one impressive feature piece is becoming ever more popular and has really taken off this year. We love a huge ceremony installation at Willow & Twine! Whether it be an unstructured arch, Moon Gate or a bespoke creation, we love love love this trend and hope its here to stay!
The most important piece of advice I can give to any couple planning their wedding flowers, or any part of their wedding, is to stay true to your vision of the day, to your personalities. It is YOUR DAY! You can do whatever you want (within reason! Lol!)….. you should love every decision you make, enjoy it all! It is the best day of your life!
