Fresh flowers have long been the go-to choice for weddings, but a more sustainable option that's becoming increasingly popular is dried and preserved flowers. They can be used for everything from bridal bouquets and party florals to venue decorations, and the variety and color choices are endless. Best of all, the flowers can be repurposed as home decor or gifted to guests after the ceremony.
As we enter 2023, we're seeing a rise in the popularity of asymmetrical floral arrangements. Rather than striving for perfect symmetry, this style layers different florals, greeneries, and grasses to create a visually pleasing look that's just as stunning as its symmetric counterpart. Additionally, we're seeing more couples opt for contrasting colors in their floral arrangements. Instead of matching bridesmaid dresses with the flowers, using a contrasting color, like a terracotta bouquet to complement sage green dresses, can make for an eye-catching contrast in photos.
When it comes to venue decorations, floral arches and arrangements on metal stands are still popular, but hanging floral installations are expected to make a big impression in 2023. A large-scale floral cloud made with dried flowers suspended above the head table or dance floor will undoubtedly be a showstopper that guests will remember for years to come.
