Monochrome Weddings – Black and white weddings were fashionable in 2013 and this theme is likely to continue into 2014. This is a classic choice for a bride who may want an elegant white wedding dress with subtle black detailing, such as a black ribbon, black jewellery or beading.
This wedding theme is stylish and timeless and could include elegant all-white flowers, such as pomander flower arrangements hung from the ceiling at the reception venue, or flower balls placed on clear sculptured stands – and these create amazing centrepieces at the wedding breakfast. The above picture is an example of a white and pink themed wedding, but the same affect can be achieved for a monochrome wedding.
Roses, calla lilies, gardenias, narcissi, freesias, chrysanthemums and sweet peas are just some of many choices of white wedding flowers.
Natural and Rustic – Rural-themed choices for wedding flowers in Bury St Edmunds look to be very much in style for 2014. A couple might choose a country house location for a natural and rustic wedding – and if they have set a date for summer, venue permitting, they may choose to exchange their vows outside.
Eco-friendly, natural weddings are delightfully scenic and can demonstrate the couple’s creative side. The bride may choose a delicate wedding dress created from lace and vintage fabric, with a floral head-dress to complete the country wedding theme. Popular wild flower bridal bouquets include hand ties featuring orchids, heather, sweet peas or wild berries. However, not anything goes, as some rare or endangered plants are protected by law.
A popular choice for wedding cakes for natural and rustic weddings may be home made cup-cake arrangements, or cakes adorned with either real flowers or edible ones, created using sugar art.
Navy Blue Weddings – Navy blue is predicted to be another fashionable theme for couples making their vows in 2014. It is a chic and graceful choice for a wedding and looks fabulous teamed with white, silver, gold or yellow.
The bride will generally still wear the traditional white wedding gown, with the groom, bridesmaids and maid of honour dressed in navy blue. When it comes to choosing wedding flowers, this colour is an extremely versatile, and arrangements vary from contemporary and minimalist table centrepieces (with just one or two flowers in glass vases), to more dramatic and elaborate floral displays.
Navy blue weddings look stunning with either a vintage or modern theme, and are a great choice for a winter wedding.
Bright and Beautiful – Bright colours, such as aqua and fuchsia pink, are set to be one of the hottest wedding trends for next year. Instead of subtle and understated, these colours look spectacular if you want your wedding flowers to be big and bold for your Bury St Edmunds venue. For show-stopping pedestal arrangements, consider hydrangeas or stocks for your displays.
For the bridal gown, the bride might choose to wear all white, with the bridesmaids dressed in fuchsia pink or aqua. The bride could clutch an elegant pink hand tie as they walk up the aisle, or have a beautiful wrist tie of bright pink orchids.
Pink ribbons look amazing on white-covered chairs at the wedding venue, and, for the wedding cake decorations, consider a cascade of real or sugar art flowers.
