A bridal party anno 2021 is much more than a bridal bouquet, a few bouquets for the bridesmaids and corsages. The garden, the marquee, the tables, and the entire wedding location has to be decorated. In America, the principle of big, bigger, biggest has applied for years. And now this format with a luxury aspect has come over to Europe. The overall picture has to be magnificent and it can all be a bit more exclusive.

5 Trends for the Upcoming Wedding Season

Together with the floral trend bureau 2Dezign – Rudi Tuinman and Pascal Koeleman – a team of florists created 5 fantastic trend themes:
1. ‘Wedding in the Mix’, a trend full of colorful flowers to match colorful dresses
2. ‘Vintage Natural White’, in which you will find spray roses, Lisianthus, Campanula, Gypsophila, and trendy dried grasses in a range from shell white to caramel and warm grey.
3. ‘Sweet in Peach’, with peach and nude tones predominating
4. ‘Trendy Lilac’, in which lilac and purple tones play the leading role
5. ‘Pink Rose Wedding’, which focuses on spray roses and romance

Stefan Van Berlo: “When decorating the table, I reinforced the sunny look by combining the softly colored flowers with bright yellow lemons and red watermelon. This gives an amazingly nice effect.

Bridal couples often come to me with pictures from Pinterest, but isn’t a bridal bouquet and a bridal decoration something super personal? The color of the bridal dress plays a role, as does the make-up of the bride and the colors worn by the groom. All these facets together form the basis for the overall picture. So it is a matter of first designing and drawing to create something unique with a big wow factor.

Max Hurtaud: “‘Vintage Natural’ is an interesting theme. With trendy dried grasses in natural shades, you can endlessly combine flowers in these trend colors. This interplay of natural vintage shades works perfectly.”

 

 

Traditions for bridal bouquets differ worldwide. Each country has its own culture. In America, you see mostly large bouquets, while in Belgium smaller bouquets with frames are appreciated. In Japan, they go for pure with sometimes just one flower and in India, the brides carry bouquets like a jewelry bag. More and more often you see big wedding party’s inspired by Indian and American weddings that are supplanting European traditions. Decorating a marquee fits in perfectly with this image. If you can do these decorations in the same style as the bridal bouquet and give both the table decorations and the marquee a festive atmosphere, your memories of that fantastic day will continue to shine. Finding the right mix of flowers and natural materials and balancing them with all the elements of the wedding is important.

For the bridal bouquet and the bridesmaids’ bouquets, I tried to create different variants. The trendy flower Lisianthus offers a lot of inspiration. You can make a large bouquet that looks very sophisticated and romantic by splitting the flowers. But you can also make large theatrical bouquets with these flowers. Also a wrist corsage, a proposal bouquet in which a heart has to be opened to contain the ring, a cushion for the rings can be made with fine flowers.

Tineke Geerlings: “The theme Trendy Lilac really brings a whole new bridal color. Especially lilac and purple Lisianthus and frivolous cow parsley combine fantastically with bridal dresses. The marquee also gets a lot of atmosphere with this dashing combination. For table decoration, I wrapped glass vases with grey fabric and nickel chains. With some peach pink flower shades between the purple and lilac, you can create even more atmosphere. These color combinations also go well with brides and bridesmaids in dresses of the same style and hue. Lilac was also one of the trend colors in 2021 and will be spotted at many weddings this year. I expect lilac and purple to continue to be a trend.

This theme color scheme is also perfect for a beach wedding. Here I made a hanging bouquet of shells for the bride and placed five arches on the beach decorated with lilac and purple flowers.

Pascal Koeleman: “The theme Pink Rose Wedding is the romantic theme par excellence. Spray roses in all shades of pink enhance the romance through their shape and scent. Bouquets with only roses or spray roses complemented with trendy grasses and other greens or flowers fit perfectly in a post-covid wedding. They immediately create an atmosphere. And, of course, the rose petals should not be missing. They lend themselves perfectly to scattering.
