The 5 Floral Trends Everyone Is Talking About

Wedding Design

Step aside, eucalyptus! These 5 floral trends are slaying the game in modern weddings, and it’s not hard to see why. If you’ve followed us for a while now, you’re sure to remember our odes to nebulous, airy floral designs and those blooms that are wild and overgrown. There’s just something about the story they tell and inspiration they breathe that gives life to a scene. And trust us, your guests will be all lit up inside when they see statement designs without a hint of that greenery that’s flooded Pinterest for years. Because seriously, who says all weddings have to look the same? Make it your own with these striking blooms!

1. Anthurium
These waxy, heart-shaped leaves always hit a homer if it’s texture you’re trying to achieve. They come in a variety of colors, and while they look fab with tropical scenes, they pop even better when used unexpectedly. Take these floral arrangements inspired by the haute couture runway, for instance.

2. Orchids
One of the most diverse blooms, orchids come in a range of colors and are as fragrant as they come. Their long, romantic stems make them ideal for minimalist wedding styles. But when bundled together or used as accent flowers with other varieties, they shine just as brightly!

3. Lunaria
Commonly referred to as “silver dollar” or “money plant”, lunaria is a rising star you’ll want to keep your eye on. Their silver disc-like seed pods add a unique dimension to any design, and we’re obsessed with the way they work with neutrals. Honestly, they look ethereal and otherworldly, and we could stare at them daily.

4. Ferns
Ferns are the new eucalyptus, that much we’re sure of. Whether sea star, tree, feather or plumosa ferns, we’re pretty sure the wedding garlands you’ve been seeing lately are made up of this rich plant. The earthy colors and unique textures add an unconventional twist to any wedding greenery. And believe us when we say that a little goes a long way!

5. Smoke Bush
Those sultry, mysterious cloud-like shrubs you’ve been seeing on Insta lately? Yep. That’s smoke bush. This unusual and colorful foliage lends a feathery effect to the clusters of blooms it possesses. Plus, it adds depth to a room that isn’t always achieved as easily with smaller plants, shrubs or blooms. We reckon we’ll see a lot more of these in the fall weddings to come this year!

Because there’s no better way to add rich, earthy colors, unique textures and good-old depth than with these 5 florals. It’s true! We’ll keep our eyes peeled for more goodness in this arena, and of course, share it with you when we see it. Follow along on Instagram and Pinterest for more wedding inspiration like this!
