Colors show a bride's fun side while white flowers exude elegance and romance. But now they say pink could be the new white. It compliments all skin types and tones.
Ojai, CA (PRWEB) October 23, 2008
Over the last several years, brides have turned from the traditional large white arrangements to a sleeker, more colorful look. The hand-held bouquet surged in popularity, providing a simple yet modern design that featured one or two flowers of similar color tones. Bold colors such as hot pink, orange, and lavender were a fashionable choice for brides in search of non-traditional flowers. Sleeker designs and bolder colors became common wedding choices. These trends set the stage for pink to rise as the new white for wedding flowers and wedding gowns.
Liza Roeser-Atwood, founder and CEO of the online wedding flower shop FiftyFlowers.com explains the trends, "Colors show a bride's fun side while white flowers exude elegance and romance. But now they say pink could be the new white. It compliments all skin types and tones."
Brides won't have a problem finding pink flowers. Nearly any type of flower is available in pink, giving a bride more options. Roeser-Atwood says trendy pink flowers include pink calla lilies, pink gerbera daisies, pink organic roses, pink peony roses, magenta hydrangeas, pink orchids, and rose petals.
There is always the return to tradition. A bride who ordered white roses, orchids, and lisianthus from FiftyFlowers.com states the reason for her decision, "We chose bridal white for its innocence, purity and worth."
Not only must a bride choose a particular flower and color, but she must then select how the flowers are arranged. A bride's personal style and taste are expressed through design. Some brides prefer a cascading bouquet, while others are drawn to simple hand-tied bouquets, still others to a wild, garden look. Some lean toward large bouquets with numerous stems.
Brides always have, and always will find unique ways to express individuality, even when sticking to more traditional floral colors such as white, or pink!
