As we are gearing up for an exciting 2018 wedding season, we can’t wait to get our hands on some gorgeous seasonal blooms! Even though every event we do is different from the next, our romantic florals are what anchor our brand and pull all of our designs together. Flowers add romance and elegance in a way that no other detail quite does.¬†As we begin to prep and finalize floral plans for this season, we are loving all of the fresh, new concepts for this year. There are so many ways to incorporate these floral trends while making your day totally personalized to you and your style.

Below, we have rounded up a few ideas to make your 2018 wedding florals stand out!




One of the biggest trends for this coming year are “petite” bridal bouquets. Instead of opting for the ever so popular large, billowy boho bouquet, more and more brides are choosing a small bouquet that really allows their gown to show and highlights their waist.

Another trend we are seeing is single-type bouquets. While classic and traditional, we are seeing a huge comeback for the classic rose or orchid bouquet. This design pairs perfectly with any modern, chic, or romantic design.

Last of all, we are seeing a huge comeback of color! After seasons of muted neutrals dominating the floral scene, this year we predict more and more brides will take their florals in a more colorful direction.

For the past few years, long farm tables have been a huge hit in the event design world. While rustic and charming, this season we are opting for a slightly more refined look. Many of our brides are selecting luxe, linen covered long tables that pair perfectly with gorgeous florals and romantic candles. Instead of a greenery garland, we are seeing more and more brides opting for lush arrangements paired with bud vases. This concept plays with varying dimensions and volumes and gives long tables a romantic touch.

If minimalism is your thing and you would prefer a more simple, understated tablescape, a floral installation might just be the thing for you! We are seeing many clients this year opt for minimal table designs paired with impactful table overhangs. These overhang installations, often created out of branches and flowers incorporate a raw and organic element to the design allowing for optimal romance and ambiance.
