Most weddings are planned based on a theme which determines its ambiance and décor, and wedding centerpieces play an important role in the celebration. Given that due importance
is rendered in every detail, even the smallest one, same thing applies on the way how tables are decorated for the guests. The wedding reception is all about showing your own personality and
creating one heck of a party, making the celebration extraordinarily remarkable. And one of the easiest ways to make a style statement is through your centerpieces. After all, these are one of
the very first things that guests would notice the moment they walk into the room. And flowers can do the wonders in your reception when opting to have them as your wedding centerpieces. The
following are the scoop on the trends in centerpieces according to the top floral experts.
The “It” Flower
So what's the hottest wedding bloom now? Anemones. These are scentless flowers that come in a vast range of jewel-toned colors. Though these have been long prized by most brides for their bright petals, the popular ones at present are those that are white with a black center. These flowers give centerpieces an ultra-bridal look, with a twist of modernity at the same time.
Mix it Up
Monochromatic is still popular these days, but style-conscious couples have been switching things up a bit. Many people go with three hues today. And how do you do it? Have half of your reception tables feature large centerpieces that showcase flowers in three different colors, while the rest hold trios of mini arrangements. This centerpiece may look luxe but is actually very easy on the budget.
Instead of having traditional red roses, having a unique variation on classic flowers are now popping up on many reception tables. Mokara orchids are now popular. These pink and orange flowers are desirable and they grow in different colors. They also create a fuller stalk of blooms, which means you need fewer to fill out the centerpieces. This way, you can save money from your wedding flower budget.
Have a brighter floral arrangement by having brightly colored napkins and table linens. You may think that fuchsia wouldn't be of help anymore while it stands out against a white tablecloth, such daring combination of bright-on-bright creates an eye-catching and stunning contrast. When you want to have hot jewel tones, think of magenta, peacock blue, royal blue, or persimmon. This would give you a rich and luxurious look, especially when they are teamed with blooms such as yellow Gerbera daisies, purple orchids, and orange dahlias.
Today, more and more brides opt to have an ultra-compact arrangement and a less polished look. Whether it is a wildflower type of arrangement or less symmetrical, this new trend simply boils down to one thing-loosening up! In fact, this trend can work in any wedding style. If you have a contemporary wedding, you can have vases filled with asymmetrical bundles of gladiolus or French tulips. Do you have country chic theme? Have a mix of flowers cut into different lengths in a subdued palette, such as a gorgeous combo of light pink ranunculus and spray roses teamed with lisianthus and white hyacinths.
