Planning a wedding might be one of the most exciting periods in a couple’s life. Many love the opportunity to plan an incredible wedding ceremony and party that reflects their relationship and dedication to each other. At Zeidler’s Flowers, we have helped countless couples plan the perfect wedding that they will cherish for the rest of their lives.
As a part of our experience with wedding planning, we have identified a few trends that seem to be gaining momentum in the world of outdoor weddings. Here are a few that we have loved and believe that couples should carefully consider to see if they would fit well with their own ideal weddings.
A more formal atmosphere
The casual wedding has dominated the outdoor wedding market for several years, but more recently there seems to have been a shift towards more formal decorations and flowers. For some couples, this shift might come in the form of champagne fountains and formal dinners, while others might express it more with traditional flowers. Blooms such as the red rose, which is such a classic symbol of romantic love, would be perfect for couples who want to create the more formal atmosphere.
Local and seasonal flowers
This trend has likely been driven by the dual concerns of price and environmentalism. When couples realize that they can save money by selecting flowers that are in season and are local to the area, they often choose to do so. Since the outdoor wedding season, which occurs mostly in the spring and summer, is also dominated by beautiful flower blooms, this is an easy choice. Local and seasonal flowers also tend to be much easier on the environment, making them an excellent choice for those who want to plan a ‘green’ wedding.
Colors that pop
This trend also plays well with the tendency of many couples to strive for more formal atmospheres. It is becoming popular to select blander background colors paired with accents that easily stand out and look fantastic, such as reds, greens, oranges and purples. This look helps create a more formal and more modern look.
Weddings are the perfect opportunity for couples to combine their personalities and the story of their relationship to create a one-of-a-kind ceremony and celebration. Those looking for some exciting trends and styles to incorporate into the big day should consider some of the above ideas.
Here at Zeidler’s we have our own wholesale division, so we are able to bring in flowers from around the world to find the perfect flowers for a couple’s wedding day.
