1. Sustainable Options
As with so many aspects of our homes, fashion and food, sustainability is big news in weddings, and in particular wedding flowers. Couples are finding creative ways to be less wasteful with wedding flowers; potted plants are a stylish way to re-use wedding flowers and foliage as gifts, favours or in your own garden at home. Low water options like cacti, air plants and succulents are increasingly popular, and many couples consider renting indoor plantsfor their reception space. Likewise, locally-sourced flowers and wildflowers featuring more and more, with Irish and British flower farms more popular than ever.
2. Fruits and Berries
Edible decor such as pumpkins, pineapples and pomegranates have been adorning tables for a few years now, but more and more florists are using them in their floral designs too. Dark berries, cherries, figs, mandarins and plums make opulent additions to any arrangements - just watch for stains if you're holding a berry-laden bouquet against your dress.
