It might be chilly outside but it’s not in your mind, is it? That’s because you’re planning the event of the year – well, for you and your friends/fam, that is. Your sunny summer wedding. While you might have the dress sorted and you’ve quenched the many fires between your bridesmaids/groomsmen over what they’ll be wearing, it’s likely you haven’t had a second to spare a thought for your wedding bouquet.
Well, I’m here for you. I’m like a less stressed version of Jennifer Lopez in The Wedding Planner, OK? And I’ve trawled Pinterest and their trend reports to give you the coolest wedding bouquets for this year. None of that standard blah stuff you’ve spotted at weddings over the years – these are the bunches you’ll want your photographer to photograph more than they take shots of your actual ceremony.
1. SUN BLEACHED
Especially chic if you’re going for minimalist or bohemian wedding vibes, a sun bleached bouquet works best if it’s teamed with dried grasses, like pampas grass, or natives.
2. BABY’S BREATH
The 80s are back, baby! Well, not exactly – the new way to have a fully-babys-breath bouquet is to keep things sweet and not too perfect – none of this perfectly rounded shape business, many babys breath bouquets are even long-stemmed affairs with florals bursting all over the place.
On the other hand, why not forgo flowers entirely? Greenery bouquets are huge right now, with everything from fern to eucalypts making an appearance.
Australiana is always a good idea, so it’s lovely that natives are back in trend for bouquets. We have such gorgeous flora across the country, so you can go as colourful or as minimalist as you like, really.
Show-stopping magnolias are trending right now for a wedding bouquet that manages to be minimalist yet dramatic. You can even go a single flower amid greenery, that’s how gorgeous these blooms are.Image: Pinterest /
