We are certainly in full swing for this years wedding season. But what is trending for this summers wedding flowers? One of the most frequently requested style for wedding bouquets and flowers that we are seeing at Pod & Pip this season, is for a relaxed, country style of flowers, almost meadow like or as though have been scooped up from an English country garden. Just stunning, we are loving this trend!
This style of wedding flowers can be used across all colour themes chosen for weddings, whether it's a soft pastel colour palette or a colour pop with vibrant colours, or blues or pinks being selected as the dominant colours or the classic green and white, it's completely versatile.
But what flowers can you use to create this look? Read on and we will spill the beans on our top picks.
Delphinium, larkspur, lupins, campanula and stocks, alongside garden roses are popular with us providing the dominant colour, focus and bulk to the bouquets and wedding flowers. These are then supplemented by the secondary and filler flowers to provide a little more character, interest, or even a colour pop. Nigella easily adds texture with its wispy foliage, whereas sweet peas not only add the most wonderful kaleidoscope of colours but the most sensational scent. Cornflowers can add a shot of colour and compliment the meadow theme and ammi helps provide that meadow look, alongside scabious and daisies.
Foliage is a huge consideration and provides the backbone to any floral arrangement. Mint, rosemary, thlaspi, Lady's Mantle (alchimilla), pittosporum or even sweet peas foliage and tendrils can be used, the list is endless. Choose carefully, as foliage will have a huge impact on the overall look and feel of the flowers, select the wrong foliage and it can immediately change the desired look and feel of the wedding flowers. Don't forget you can also feature grasses and seed heads to give that extra texture and interest.
To help make the bouquets and wedding flowers more authentic with its meadow or garden style theme, we source our flowers where possible from local growers or our very own cutting garden. There's nothing quite like going out first thing in the morning to select and cut flowers from growers cutting beds or from those that you have grown yourself from seed.
