One of the biggest decisions for the most important day of your life is your choice of flowers. They set the tone and the colour scheme, and shape the entire feel of your wedding, providing elegance and sophistication.
With COVID-19 causing a seemingly endless stream of wedding-related problems for brides, artificial flowers are becoming a popular choice for weddings. As everything seems uncertain at the moment, by opting for artificial flowers brides are loving the certainty of guaranteed perfect flowers whatever the season.
Here at Ivy Cruz, we can supply the most on-trend blooms created from the finest silk to truly enhance your special day. To give you some inspiration, here are three of the biggest artificial flower trends of 2021.
- Oversized Flowers
While coronavirus may be causing the size of weddings to shrink, wedding flowers are only getting bigger. This is partly as brides have more money to spend on luxurious flower arrangements due to the lack of guests they need to cater for, and the finished result is guaranteed to make your wedding Instagram worthy.
One option is to go for an oversize bouquet that will complement the bride’s stunning gown. Likewise, opting for a flower wall or arch is a great way to add an air of sophistication to your day while acting as the perfect backdrop for photographs. Flower walls are also a wonderful way to enhance a particular area of your venue, such as where you will be saying your vows or where you’ll be cutting the cake.
- Muted Colours
2021 is set to be the year of more muted and softer colour palettes, such as soft pastels, creams, and golds, while bolder reds and pinks will be less popular. The beauty of using subtle hues is the ability to mix multiple different shades in a graceful way. You no longer need to choose one colour for your flowers, but can playfully combine several delicate shades for a contemporary take.
- Hanging Arrangements
Breath-taking hanging floral arrangements are also set to be a popular choice in 2021. These arrangements create a dramatic and long-lasting impression and are a huge visual element that brides currently love. Traditional table runners or centrepieces are being replaced with hanging alternatives to free up space for your guests while adding character to your venue.
Venues with elevated ceilings such as barns are not suited to this type of flower arrangement, neither are venues that already have dramatic chandeliers or other hanging décor in place. However, if you feel your venue is lacking from above, this is a sure way to draw your guest’s attention upwards.
