London, UK (PRWEB UK) 27 May 2014
Pink has always been a popular choice for summer weddings, but pale pinks are particularly in vogue this year, reports London wedding florist Todich Floral Design. Many fashion designers included pale pink pieces in their collections for spring and summer 2014, and there is a growing trend towards pink wedding dresses too since celebrities including Gwen Stefani, Reece Witherspoon, Portia DeRossi and Anne Hathaway all recently chose to get wed in pink coloured wedding gowns.
The influence of the Great Gatsby and the art deco trend has also played a role in the increased popularity of soft, blush pink wedding flowers too, as in this era, subtle elegance was key. This was often achieved through the use of neutrals such as beige, cream, white, brown and black, combined with muted tints, tones and shades of other colour hues. Soft pinks, combined with cream, beige, black and white was a big trend, and is a great colour scheme for brides wanting to create a 1920s vintage wedding theme.
Here, London bridal florist Todich Floral Design shares some of the most popular and beautiful summer wedding flowers for 2014 that are perfect for pale pink wedding themes, as well as some of the most on-trend colours to combine them with.
Owner Zlatko “Todd” Todic says, “This year it’s all about refined, subtle pinks, which include the nudes, blushes and peaches rather than the more saturated girly pinks. The influence of the Great Gatsby has bought back more romance, glamour and a sense of tradition and formality to wedding flowers and events, which has seen a growing trend for event flowers in an abundant and elegant, but at the same time relaxed and approachable style.”
According to Mr Todic, peonies, roses, dahlias, ranunculus and hydrangeas are some of the most popular and best flowers a bride or event planner can choose if considering this colour scheme, particularly garden roses and tree peonies, which are proving a firm favourite with brides and floral designers this year. Some of the most stunning pale pink varieties include Sweet Avalanche or Milky Way roses, Gardenia peonies, Cloni ranunculus, Hydrangea ‘You & Me,’ David Austin ‘Juliet’ and ‘Keira’ garden roses, plus the stunning Dahlia ‘Café au Lait,’
Combined with other dainty flowers and fillers in pale creams and yellows and soft, dusty grey-green foliage, these gorgeous blooms create stunning designs for a blush pink wedding. Combine these with accents of navy in the wedding décor, either for table settings or bridesmaids dresses and this creates a very classic, elegant look, plus blues in all hues are also a top trend this year. Particularly good flowers for creating soft, romantic displays along with the main flowers mentioned above include waxflower, cow parsley, gypsophila, lily of the valley, campanula, sweet peas, astilbe and phox, and foliage like senecio and eucalyptus.
In terms of flower designs for wedding bouquets and wedding reception arrangements in keeping with this trend, loose, natural trailing bouquets are very in vogue, along with tall, towering table centres, flower garlands and arches, all of which create a sense of abundance, romance and glamour.
