1. Ombre-Colours

Vivacious, fearless, and BOLD - are all words hot on the lips of designers in 2024!

Recently, we've revelled in more playful ways to use colours, such as ombre colour-blocking for weddings and events.

As opposed to solid colour blocking, it's a stand-out and luxe trend that we LOVE - working especially well for long table runners to bring added dynamism to any occasion.

In addition to ombre-colour blocking, we also notice that many couples are veering away from traditional wedding elements to more modern and fun styles such as patterned tablecloths, candles, etc.

This is one of our favourite wedding flower trends to watch!

2. Adding Fruits and Veggies

Certain fruits and vegetables have been associated with gods, abundance, and positive symbolism for a long time. It's a great idea to add bountiful fruits to diversify your floral arrangements.

In recent times, potted fruiting plants and trees have been increasingly used as centrepieces for table designs, making it one of the most popular wedding flower trends.

Skilfully mixing both fruits and flowers in designs can break up the rhythm of the space, add a destination wedding vibe, and is a sustainable option as opposed to using cut flowers everywhere.

Fruits not only provide a big bright hit of colours and a wide range of textures and characters but can also bring an aromatic fragrance to an event.

3. Natural Backdrops

As more and more wedding couples seek to incorporate natural elements into their special occasions, floral arches are becoming less popular.

Instead, natural backdrops are emerging as a popular trend that is expected to remain popular for years to come.

Custom installations, such as arboreal backdrops, can be filled with personal meaning and provide an excellent photo backdrop or statement installation. Examples are 'Living Avenues' that Kate, Princess of Wales walked through on her way to becoming a royal bride, many couples seek to create their own magical and symbolic arboreal backdrops for their special events and weddings.

Trees can represent a relationship taking root, growing and flourishing, with each tree variety symbolising a different meaning in the language of flowers. For example, hornbeams represent resilience, field maples represent humility, and silver birches symbolise hope and new beginnings. Cherry trees symbolise good fortune, luck, love, adoration, and romance, while apple trees represent goodwill, happiness, and the bounty of life.

Every arboreal scene is unique and made to blend a couple's creative vision and nature perfectly. Custom trees can also have a life beyond an event or ceremony and are often planted and nurtured at home.

4. Grounded Arrangements

A grounded arrangement means that the flowers are placed on the ground or in low containers, instead of being suspended in the air. This trend became more popular after the pandemic as people were looking for a sense of stability and connection to the earth.

Grounded arrangements are especially great for outdoor weddings as they help to define the space and make the couple the center of attention in photos. They are also useful for concealing any items that guests may have around them on the ground.

The result of using grounded arrangements is a polished, luxurious, and seamless look that can easily be moved and repurposed from the ceremony to the reception.

5. Set Design

Wedding couples nowadays consider their wedding or ceremony as a stage in a production.

To give life to their ideas and realize their vision, specialised design teams provide assistance with structural installations, designing and sourcing, backdrops, and graphic window prints, among others.

An example of this trend can be seen in this stunning cross-cultural wedding showcased on Vogue. The bride asked to replicate the walls of the grand “pink mosque” of Shiraz that dates back to the 19th century.

Mixing printed designs with flowers, and or plants would bring the strongest trends together. Creating unique and breathtaking backdrops for photographs is a trend that wedding and event organisers highly prioritise.

6. Vases or No Vases

Couples often overlook the vessels or vases when planning their wedding flowers.

For example, we have started using more and more Kenzans in delicate bowls or specially shaped vessels. Kenzans are a floristry tool that consists of small metal spikes which hold stems in place. They are traditionally used in Japanese Ikebana arrangements but have become popular in traditional floral arrangements as well.

We always try to find unique vases that reflect our couples' personalities and stories. We have a collection of vases found in antique shops, designer pieces as well as modern and popular ones.

By not using visible vases, we can create a more organic and natural display. From the grounded displays, that look like they were planted at the venue to trailing through the structures without a vase to be seen.

We believe that the best table scapes are those that mix all elements to tell a story.

7. Delicate Bridal Bouquets

One of the favorite wedding flower trends for 2024 is the preference for smaller bridal bouquets.

Instead, there will be a bigger focus on statement installations for the ceremony and reception. This flower trend for 2024 doesn't mean that bridal bouquets will be any less impressive. In fact, we especially love how the use of a single bloom can look.

The days of oversized Princess Diana boho-style bouquets are gone for the moment.

In 2024, bridal bouquets will still be airy and light, but they will be downsized and feature many smaller bouquets.

Hand-tied bouquets might perhaps be inspired again by Catherine Princess of Wales, who walked down the aisle in 2011, carrying a small, wired posy or Camilla, Queen Consort, who had a small posy consisting of lily of the valley and yellow, purple, and white primroses with a sprig of myrtle.
