Trend 7: The Most Popular Look In Flowers This Year
We asked Therese the Award Winning Chelsea Show Designer for this year’s trends. “In 2019 wedding flowers the trend is to use natural Styles with a nice selection of foliage and texture like berries etc. Ivory is still the most popular colour when it comes the bouquet but lots of brides are adding extra colours to reflect the personality of the bride and groom.
In 2019 weddings, greenery continues to be a classic go-to shade, with flowers and foliage becoming more organic and lush. Trees and use of foliage throughout floral designs will take centre stage with florals will be natural, whimsical and romantic.”
