Flower Trends for your RI Wedding

These days, when it comes to wedding bouquets and boutonnieres the most important rule to know is:  There are no rules!  While it can be exciting to choose from an array of flowers, all the different combinations can be daunting. Here’s a handy guide that can help you choose flowers that will add something extra special to your big day!

Bouquets with Meaning

There are many ways to express meaning in your bouquet. One idea is to choose the state flower of each of you and join it with the flower of the state you met in; or choose the flowers that represents the month each of you were born.

Often, the couple wants to remember a dearly departed family member. Jeri Solomon of Jeri Solomon Floral Design told us, “I often add a keepsake or memento of the Bride's to her bouquet handle. Perhaps a locket from her grandmother.” Another idea, incorporate a favorite flower of the person you want to remember.

Mixing it Up

Brides and Grooms today want to express their individual style and that means flowers that are all the same color and size are often “out” and wedding bouquets and boutonnieres that play with size and texture are “in.”  Here are some of our favorite that fall into this category:

Tamara Reid of Tamara Reid Designs tells us, “Brides and Grooms are really trying to put their personal stamp on their weddings, such as infusing elements of their hobbies into their wedding bouquets, boutonnieres and decor.”  What a great idea!
