Flowers are a key statement which brings a splash of colour and freshness to any event. So it’s no wonder that the brides bouquet is always a focal point! A floral arangement is a great way to add that special touch and symbolise your love for one another.

1. Floral Accessories
First port of call is always the wedding dress, the style of your dress define the style of your day! A flowing gown fit for a princess, or a short more playful style, which will you go for? Accessorising your wedding dress with floral details is a must for the 2016 bride. Floral headbands are the perfect way to add a splash of colour!
2. Colour combinations
You should choose your colours depending on the style that you want to evoke. Mauve hues and shimmering blues for that dreamy location, white and cream shades paired with glass, candles and crystal pendants ooze romance and can brighten up any venue. Or for an elegant yet contemporary wedding, pinks and purples with small hints of gray and black are the perfect combination!
3. Oversized Centerpieces
Pastel tones are also a big trend for 2016! Decorating your tables with oversized centrepieces full of beautiful and delicate pastel tones is the perfect way to stay on trend.
4. Cascading flowers
Another trend this year are gravity defying flowers! Yes, that’s right, floral decorations cascading down from the rooftop, tree branches, or wherever you like infact! The list of possibilities is endless. Add in a few sparkling lights and lanterns and you will have the most beautiful effect!
5. Wild plants
If you’re going for the natural, rustic look for your wedding then wild plants are perfect! Centerpieces made with natural elements such as tree bark, leaves, fruits and flowers are the perfect way to achieve this look and be on trend in 2016.
6. Mini bouquets
For brides who prefer a more simple and classy style, we recommend a smaller bouquet which is another top trend for 2016. A minimal and elegant choice which will leave all eyes on you instead of your floral arrangements!
