5 Floral Trends We’re Crushing On

Here at Rocky Mountain Bride, we’ve got a soft spot for all things floral because flowers can truly bring any element of your big day to life. That’s why we teamed up with florist, Passiflora Farm, to share 5 floral trends we’re crushing on! Each trend can be adapted and molded to fit any wedding theme, simply work with your florist to determine the best flowers, colors, and arrangements for your vision.

Lush Greenery

Greenery rich weddings continue to grow in appeal to brides and it isn’t a trend that will be ending anytime soon. A lush greenery wedding is defined by the heavy use of greenery and foliage in floral design elements. Who doesn’t love the look of lush greens cascading over tables, hanging greenery drapes, greenery wall installations, tables loaded in lush garlands, or eucalyptus spilling out of bouquets. The use of eucalyptus in the Montana wedding showcased below, created a greenery drape behind the bride and groom that is simply stunning! The lush greens are carried throughout the reception with garlands on tables and a greenery embellished cake cart.

Dried Ingredients

What’s not to love when it comes to dried ingredients in floral arrangements! The dried flower trend we see on the rise in weddings are not the same dried flowers you may remember from the 80’s and 90’s. There is a wealth of flowers, grasses, pods, and foliage that can be easily sourced from your floral designer as dried that have been either bleached, left natural, dyed, or even painted! Many dried ingredients trending today, also showcase the natural beauty and texture of the plant as well as seasonality and it is great to see more and more couples appreciate this for their wedding day. The use of neutral dried grasses, metallic painted palms, dried Italian Ruscus, and dried Strawflower complement the soft tones of the antique carnations and roses in this dried flower-rich photoshoot.

Boho Style

The boho-chic wedding trend isn’t going anywhere and we aren’t complaining about that! This is the perfect style for couples who want to embrace their more free-spirited nature by incorporating natural elements with a touch of romance and glamour. Think pampas grass, dried florals, driftwood or other rustic natural elements, cascading or simple bouquets, floral crowns or hats, boots and floral ties for the gentlemen. Boho inspiration in this wild and free Wyoming elopement led to a simple dried flower bouquet and boutonniere to complement the floral tie, rust hat, and bohemian lace gown.

Hanging or Suspended Floral Installations

This is a gorgeous way to dress up the look of any venue by hanging florals or greenery from the ceiling, beams, or tent frames. The look can be minimal or highly impactful depending on the nature of the installation. Florals can appear to float or they can be seen suspending from chandeliers or pedestals. There are so many unique design opportunities when incorporating a hanging installation. It is definitely worth discussing with your wedding floral designer!

The hanging floral installation pictured below is in the form of floating floral clouds where the suspension mechanics are not visible to the untrained eye.

Ground or Floor Floral Installations

Instead of hanging floral arrangements from the backs of chairs down the ceremony aisle or towers of florals on ceremony backdrops there is a new and growing trend for ground or low-lying floral installations. These floral arrangements look as though they are coming out of the ground or floor as a garden would grow! They are a budget friendly alternative to traditional ceremony florals as they can easily be repurposed and moved for use in the reception after the ceremony takes place. The installation featured here was created as a ceremony backdrop in the shape of a crescent and then moved and repurposed to the reception area to surround the sweetheart table.
