Here are the four most important trends in wedding and event flowers identified to emerge in 2013:

Peach roses and pink peonies captivate in the charming taste of the emerging Heirloom theme. Heirloom embraces and honors the past in a romantic, elegant manner with a modern feel with nostalgic twist!
A fantasy of rich and exotic elements and colors; royal tones of teal, violet, emerald, plum and sapphire, excite quests and wedding parties alike in the bold Enchanted style. Bright pink phalaenopsis orchids, green spray chrysanthemums and blue hydrangeas are just a few of the flowers that can be combined to create this magical, mystical journey.

Organic materials presented in a modern contemporary style will be popular. Eco Chic stimulates senses through the contrast of extreme opposites! The flowers are big and impactful like white calla lilies and green anthurium or cymbidium orchids. Eco Chic embraces Haute Tension and builds contract against its clean lines and bold colors using natural accents.

For the bride that wants to express inner excitement there is Personality Palette. This theme allows brides to ignite their fanciful inner emotions and express a playful fun side. It is the feeling of a whimsical county fair or olde world carnival created in a bright color palette of tangerine, pink and yellow accented in a warm earthy taupe.
