For her recent wedding to William, Hollynn chose to carry a hand-tied bouquet of white and ivory flowers, which included hydrangea, roses, lisianthus, stock and astilbe. The flowers were accented with seeded and silver dollar eucalyptus.

Hollyn and William’s reception was held at the Renaissance Hotel. Centerpieces alternated between tall and low arrangements. The tall arrangements contained mostly greenery with some white and ivory flower accents. The foliage included seeded eucalyptus, silver dollar eucalyptus and Italian ruscus.

Wedding floral trends

As a wedding trend for 2018, we are seeing a number of brides choosing bouquets which primarily feature a lush assortment of foliage. This was the case in one of our weddings last weekend, with the bride’s attendants carrying bouquets consisting of mixed varieties of eucalyptus with an accent of baby’s breath. The bride’s bouquet harmonized with the organic attendant bouquets, but included white and ivory flowers. Here roses, spray roses, ranunculus, lisianthus and baby’s breath are added to the greens. The foliage in the bouquet includes two varieties of eucalyptus.

As a contrast, another bride this weekend chose a classically sleek and elegant bouquet with little foliage. The flowers featured are roses and mini calla lilies.

Dan and Sarah were recently wed in St. Paul’s Cathedral and enjoyed a fabulous reception at the Duquesne Club. Of course, if it was a Ludwig wedding, the flowers had to be exquisite!
