Weddings, conventions and graduations…

The weekend after Mother’s Day proved even busier for us than the weekend before! May is the start of the wedding season in Pittsburgh, and this week we designed wedding flowers for three different bridal parties. We also provided green and blooming plants for various graduations, and for the International Quilt Market, which was held at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.

Wedding floral trends for 2013

Our wedding specialist, Sherry Holeczy, writes:

Weddings for spring and summer 2013 will have a fresh feel, and what’s more fresh than flowers?  There are a few themes trending that allow for flowers to play a major role in the ambiance of your wedding.

One of my favorite trends this year is the vintage, romantic feel that isn’t too fussy.  This is the perfect theme for a beautiful bouquet!  Imagine walking through a well-groomed garden of a great estate and gathering flowers as you stroll along.  Wedding bouquets for this theme should evoke that feeling, with natural, easy blooms of hydrangea, garden roses, spray roses and maybe a few peonies (if you’re lucky enough to get the timing just right.)  There may be some ivy creating a slight cascade.  To keep with the easy feeling, don’t be too concerned about the blooms matching perfectly with the dresses.  Pastels are in for 2013 weddings, and there are many shades of flowers that will complement a mint green or pale pink bridesmaid dress beautifully.  We are even seeing pastel floral patterned dresses!

A closely related theme is inspired by the 1920’s (think Downton Abbey.)  This has a similar feel, but with a little more glamour and elegance.  This bouquet may be large and cascading with a more “put together” look.  Bridesmaids may carry small, simple nosegays using only one type of flower.  Carnations were a popular flower in the 1920’s, and are a great option to include in any bouquet.

Another trend is graphic-printed bridesmaid dresses.  Think stripes, chevrons and polka dots, just to name a few!  These provide the perfect backdrop for bright, monochromatic bouquets.  Create a fun summer look by choosing a bright bouquet of all hot pink or orange flowers, against a navy and white striped dress.

Whether you are a bride or wedding guest, 2013 promises to be a year full of beautiful blooms!
