wedding bouquet by Shirley's Flowers People are ringing in the New Year and for some there will be WEDDING BELLS, as many couples get engaged this time of year! Here are some of the popular trends in wedding flowers:

Trend 1: Brides taking flowers from their bouquet and making them focal flowers for their bridesmaids

In this natural bouquet we used cotton, roses, dahlias, spray roses and succulents.

We took one of those flowers and created a monobotanical bouquet for each of the bridesmaids.

Trend 2: Using sentimental pieces in personal flowers

In this boutonniere we used a gun shell for the groom because his family has a passion for hunting.

Trend 3: Mixing sweet and romantic with a touch of dramatic

In these delicate bouquets we used seeded eucalyptus, sweetheart spray roses, and vendella roses, with a touch of dark eggplant-colored dahlias and white anemones to add some drama.

Trend 4: Going monochromatic for effect

Monochromatic bouquets are becoming a staple. In these European hand-tied bouquets we used rust calla lilies, orange asiatic lilies, and circus roses to create a visually pleasing design.
