The 2016 wedding season is well underway in Wilmington, as brides and grooms who became engaged over the holidays are busy planning their big day. From popular wedding websites, to bridal expos and online photo boards, there are literally thousands of beautiful images to inspire couples. Whatever the color scheme, whatever the theme, the top trends are easily discerned. Those who track such trends give us insight as to what the majority of couples seem to be choosing; yet the beauty of a wedding is that you can design everything, from venue to dresses, to fit your unique style.
There are several trends when it comes to florals that are of note. First, while some brides will always love the vibe of brights and neons, these hues seem to be giving way to more vintage blush palettes and cascading, unkempt arrangements that more closely resemble nature. Secondly, the matching uniformity of a traditional wedding is also falling out of vogue; when it comes to bridesmaid dresses and floral arrangements, choices that are similar yet complementary are becoming more popular. Another floral choice that has always been popular, but is definitely trending in this season, is the tall centerpiece. These dramatic arrangements are an ideal design choice, because they easily fit into nearly any venue or reception hall effortlessly.
The high centerpiece is aesthetically dramatic; filling the empty air in a space with grace and beauty. But as beautiful as the arrangement can be, it is also functionally attractive. Wedding reception photographs are more compelling with the elongated, graceful floral rising above the tabletops; these elegant arrangements also allow for easier interaction for your guests around the table, with the flowers well out of line of sight. With so many ways to incorporate high centerpieces into your décor – from a stalk of gladiolas to orchids in tall, slender vases – it is easy to see why they are so popular this year.
