With the trend for wedding flowers seeing a constant flow of ethereal arrangements and soft greenery over the past few years, 2019 will see a triumphant and refreshing return to colour and vibrancy. 2019 will also see brides embrace practicality and tradition with locally-grown flowers and small bouquets. Let’s take a look at 2019’s top wedding flower trends.
Dried flowers and grass
When choosing decorative accents for floral arrangements, two of the major wedding flower trends for 2019 are dried flowers and ornamental grasses.
Pampas grass, fountain grass and wheat stalks are proving popular alternatives to wedding greenery for brides who desire a rustic, bohemian and vintage-style bouquet or centrepiece. Dried daisies, baby’s breath, lavender and other flowers are also top trends for 2019’s flower arrangements.
Greenery is now a staple feature of wedding flower arrangements, from bouquets to garlands and wedding cake decorations. These plants complement an earthy, woodland or forest chic vibe, which is continuing to prove popular across social media.

With sustainability becoming increasingly popular in our lifestyles, brides are now choosing eco-friendly ceremonies. Fashion designers are also creating sustainable wedding dresses.
With brides thinking consciously about their wedding flowers, the mindset has shifted to quality over quantity. Statement blooms are being selected to make arrangements stand out over elaborate, expensive flowers. By choosing seasonal flowers – and particularly ones that have been grown locally to your wedding venue – you can also reduce unnecessary waste and cost.
Floral installations such as backdrops and hanging centrepieces have become a stylish way to personalise your ceremony.
Creative floral aisles have become one of the top wedding flower trends for 2019, with rows of lush blooms placed strategically along the aisles. This gives the illusion that the bride is walking through a romantic field of flowers.
Bold coral shades
A pinky-orange cheerful shade, coral can be incorporated easily into centrepieces and bouquets to stunning effect. Peonies, dahlias, calla lilies and roses are just a few flowers that work beautifully in this shade, which is expected to have a big influence in 2019.
Alternatively, try peach roses for a softer take or burnt orange flowers to reference this trend.
