“Last year we saw considerably brighter spring flowers but this year we are expecting to see more traditional spring flowers in soft pastels combined with texture-rich flowers arranged in romantic, Victorian-inspired designs,” said CEO Liza Roeser.

With over ten years in the wholesale wedding flower business and over 50,000 brides served, FiftyFlowers.com understands wedding flowers and the ever changing flower trends. They have been listening to their brides’ requests and working with their in-house floral designer to predict this year’s spring wedding flower trends. Their predictions include combinations of soft pastels, barely-there-pinks and warm ivories paired with silvery greens and coupled with small bursts of brighter colors -- all arranged into large free-flowing bouquets and arrangements.
Brides will be looking for a romantic color pallet, with pastels and warm, earthy tones making a huge statement. Blushing pinks, light lavenders, warm peach colors and creamy ivories will be popular colors set against gray, blue and silver-tinged greens like labs ear, dusty miller and seeded eucalyptus. “Too many pastels can create a washed out look, to prevent this select one flower in a slightly brighter-shade to feature in your floral arrangements. This will help the flowers stand apart from one another. I also suggest selecting flowers with different shapes, for example a traditional round and ruffled rose like our Antique Country Pink Vanity Rose set next to our Blush Hybrid Lily provides contrast and depth,” says Violet, floral designer at FiftyFlowers.com.
Spring flowers such as creamy white anemones, tulips, daffodils, and blooming cherry blossom branches, paired with fuller flowers like hydrangeas, garden roses and lisianthus will be used to create elaborate and full arrangements. “Last year we saw considerably brighter spring flowers but this year we are expecting to see more traditional spring flowers in soft pastels combined with texture-rich flowers arranged in romantic, Victorian-inspired designs,” said CEO Liza Roeser.
Bridal bouquets are likely to show lots of texture as the unique shapes of spring flowers work their way into designs. The floral designer at FiftyFlowers.com suggests, “…filler flowers are often overlooked but are an excellent and affordable way to add texture to bouquets and other arrangements. A few of my favorite filler flowers are Craspedia Billy Balls, wax flower and spray stock. Craspedia, commonly called Billy Balls, can add a small splash of color to an otherwise pastel-inspired bouquet!”
Spring flowers remind us of fresh flower gardens and many spring wedding bouquets take their inspiration and cascading form directly from these abundant and beautiful gardens. We expect to see fewer round-molded bouquets and centerpieces and more natural, garden style bouquets with free-flowing flowers that are casual and reflect the carefree attitude of a spring garden. Expect to see lots of greenery tucked into spring centerpieces and cascading from bridal bouquets.
