Today’s brides are adding unique touches to their bouquets and floral centerpieces. Natural elements, like branches, succulents, shells and feathers, are becoming more popular. Couples are also using synthetic materials to add nontraditional components to their weddings’ floral arrangements, including brooches, metallic accents and paper flowers.
The florists at Buffalo Wedding Florist, a division of Plant Place & Flower Basket, are committed to creating “one of a kind floral bouquets, arrangements and centerpieces” for local weddings. They’ve helped countless Buffalo couples use nontraditional elements in their floral centerpieces and offered some insight into today’s trends.
Layers of Feathers
Layering traditional floral elements with multiple other materials within a single centerpiece creates a stunning combination. Feathers, along with branches and glass beads, all lit from within, take center stage. Keeping such a varied arrangement two-toned keeps it from being overwhelming.
Color Coordinated Berries
Adding sprigs of berries in the same color palate as your other centerpiece elements helps add texture without taking away from your beautiful flowers. Berries, leaves and branches can be styled to fit centerpieces in any season!
Ferns, leaves, green flowers and even fruit like green apples and pears are making an appearance in today’s centerpieces. These elements help colorful floral elements stand out while adding volume and height.
Dressed Up Dessert Table
Unique dessert tables are one of Bride Magazine’s 2018 wedding trends to know. Buffalo Wedding Florist is already helping couples dress up their cakes and dessert tables with florals and other elements to match their centerpieces.
Unique Vases and Votives
Not only are the arrangement elements of a couple’s centerpieces home to nontraditional details, the vases that hold them are unique as well. Tall vases, colored glass, lanterns, metallics and even pumpkins are finding a place within the tablescapes Buffalo Wedding Florist helps create.
