Wedding flowers play a huge role during your big day. The famous RHS Chelsea Flower Show launches in
London today, so I thought it would be nice to feature fabulous wedding flowers
on my blog.
My own florist, Bex Morgan from Blush Floral Design was able to
help me choose appropriate wedding flowers for my big day. Seeing as I was getting married in the Spring
I wanted to be sure that my colour scheme was light but striking at the same
time. For my bouquet I chose a gorgeous pale peony arrangement featuring a
single amnesia rose; the same ivory theme ran throughout our wedding
ceremony in the form of oversized hydrangeas.
For the reception however, our breakfast table was decorated with several
vases of ivory flowers featuring a stunning green shade which looked
I interviewed Bex Morgan yesterday to get her top tips on
wedding floral trends for this coming summer and the style of 2012. Here’s what
she had to say:
“This year in the wedding flower world it's all about soft
tones of nude and Blush pinks. Still very vintage but more romantic and less
rustic. Pretty peonies in muted tones and beautiful roses like the peachy
coloured Bombastic rose are used to fill vintage silverware in both low or high
arrangements.” Said Bex. Blush pinks
mixed with ivory look incredible, and so classy!
Bex also expressed that “Peonies and garden roses are still
the hot favourite but more brides are asking for different varieties which is
lovely to hear. Roses like the Green Eyed rose looks amazing in a country style
bouquet or set against succulents to help create a very modern structured style
posy. Fruit in bouquets and table
arrangements are so much fun and creative. Many brides are asking for apples
and even strawberries to be wired into their bouquets next to beautiful stocks

Having fruit incorporated into your bridal bouquet is an
amazing idea and can be so creative if you choose to elaborate this theme
throughout your wedding reception tables and wedding cake.
“Green and white is a beautiful and fresh approach to glamorous
wedding flowers. By using white or silver vases/containers and using the same
variety of flower domed together gives a simple but stunning effect - and a new trend at the moment is to come up
with a creative way to display a table plan. I've done wheelbarrow inspired
designs, picture frames covered in garden roses, plant pots filled with
lavender and printed numbers...the list goes on!” quoted Bex.
