Often, when choosing a wedding concept, brides are confused when it comes to floristry. It is important to create a design that matches the main idea, but how to do it in practice? What flowers to prefer? For example, if a wedding is in boho style, then roses are unlikely to work, but what can replace them? Or what about minimalism so that it doesn’t look like you’re running out of budget? Florist-decorator, founder of the VISIONÄR bureau Roman Kovalishin came to the rescue and told how to choose flowers for the style of the wedding.
From year to year, the classics remain relevant. Snow-white bridesmaid dresses, black tuxedos, tiered cake and, of course, delicate floral decor. The most popular classic flowers are roses and peonies. In case you want to make a similar story, let the flowers be in delicate shades – traditional snow-white, pale pink, peach.
One of the most popular styles in recent seasons is boho. It combines eclecticism, folk, hippie and gypsy style with handmade elements. When choosing flowers for a boho wedding style, remember that it is distinguished by slight negligence, which means that flower arrangements should be asymmetrical, natural and bright. Eclecticism in floristry always allows you to show your imagination. You can use unusual bright flowers, for example, exotic orchids, hydrangeas, strelitzia, protea, dahlias, succulents, sunflowers.
When it comes to minimalism, the main thing to remember is that style is simplicity. Elegant and laconic compositions will be the best decoration for a minimalist wedding. When choosing flowers, remember that in this case, light shades are the basis, which can be diluted with a bright accent. For example, choose crisp white orchids and peonies and dilute them with bright blue wildflowers.
Eco-style implies the use of only natural materials that are not capable of harming nature. Any flowers are suitable for this concept, but the combination of wood and green plants looks the most advantageous. Moss, fern, succulents, branches, cotton and cones will help to create such a “forest” wedding. Try to avoid cut plants and use live potted compositions.
In unusual glam rock and rock ‘n’ roll weddings, mostly not floral decorations are used, but plaster, leather, metal, plastic and wood. But still, even in such hooligan concepts, one cannot do without several flower arrangements. Bright scarlet, wine, pink and purple roses with thorns, as well as doused with multi-colored paint, large painted roses in the style of tattoos and even folded of iron are ideal for such a wedding. You can also use green potted plants, such as cacti, in your decor.
Gothic motives in wedding decor are not the most common. Although if you decide on such a bright and bold wedding, give preference to dark and rich fiery colors in floristry. Scarlet, wine, red, black and brown shades in the composition will perfectly reflect the concept. Use anemones, dark roses, lilies, orchids, callas and thistles.
