Wedding flower trends 2023

Remember that everything has to be harmonic, and there will always be ways for you to experiment with the aesthetics of your celebration. To help you, we have put together a list of some of the cutest wedding flower trends.

Flower arches

These details look beautiful at the ceremony, especially if you have a beachfront wedding. Best of all, you can achieve different designs and settings, depending on the flowers you choose and their accessories.

I love the idea of integrating pampas grass into the equation, as well as flowers in different sizes and contrasting colors or textiles for a very inspiring result.

Take a look at Vanessa and Phillip’s ’70s-inspired, Boho Vibes Wedding. To design this Cabo destination wedding, we relied mainly on a palette of tones with oranges, some touches of burnt orange, and dried yellow. Observe how this palette was applied to their wedding arch:

Flower installations

Hanging gardens and designs inspired by works of art will be one of the cutest wedding flower trends of 2023. The idea is to combine the best of nature and art in the same proposal, letting the beauty of your wedding and your unique personality show.

These flower arrangements can be present at the wedding ceremony, on the tables of the guests in the catering, or even on the dance floor.

Table runners

If you do not want to opt for classic centerpieces with flowers, this option is ideal. The table runners will give color to the décor of the tables and a lot of continuity, in addition to the fact that you can complement them with textiles and fresh fruits that accompany the range of colors.

The mix of foliage, natural flowers, and dried nature can help you achieve amazing wedding tablescapes!

Take a look at Yassee & Yuri’s stunning Greek-inspired wedding, where we designed beautiful table runners using flowers, foliage, candles, and fresh fruits.

Simple centerpieces with single flowers are also part of the wedding flower trends.

You can add monochrome dynamics or create very interesting contrasts with surprising colors. Don’t forget that candles and crystals are essential elements to add an elegant and timeless touch.

Vivid colors

Before you choose classic pastel colors, you should know that bright tones are trending this 2023.

You can integrate tones that are energetic and contrasting, although you can also decide on romantic and very interesting ombré styles. You can display these flower trends in all the decorative details, from the bouquet and the arches of the ceremony to the centerpieces.

Glam effect

If you want your wedding to stand out from the rest due to its décor and production, I suggest choosing an endless number of flowers in the same color so that, with good light contrast, they put together a show for you, your partner, and your guests.

White flowers will look perfect in this trend, as well as those in pink tones and even red ones. Choose according to the style you are looking for for that I Do and transform the entire occasion.

How to choose the perfect flowers for your wedding

To round up this article, Oziel shares with us his framework for choosing the ideal flowers for a wedding and for creating stunning floral compositions:

The steps to make the floral design for a wedding are:

  1. Analyze the color palette that the bride likes.
  2. Check the inspiration or ideas that the bride has (you can turn to the bride’s Pinterest or Instagram profiles).
  3. Analyze the style that the bride wants to get (boho, glam, minimalist, classic, etc).
  4. Verify the shapes and silhouettes of different flowers and analyze which flower can suit each of the styles and matches the bride’s inspiration.
  5. Implement the chromatic circle so that there is harmony in the composition of the floral arrangement (This is basic).
  6. Once you select the flowers and the colors to be used, choose 3 types of flowers.
  • One protagonist flower: This is the flower that the bride likes the most, they are usually big and showy, and could also be called the flagship flower.
  • Two auxiliary flowers: flowers accompanying the main flowers, usually of medium size, these follow the same shapes and colors, without overshadowing the main flowers.
  • Three highlighting flowers: normally of small sizes, with a shape and silhouette totally different from the main and auxiliary flowers, these are the ones that help to highlight details that the main and auxiliary flowers cannot achieve.

It is important to note, Rosales concludes, that the concept of beauty varies from person to person. “The choice of flowers is merely a matter of taste, the challenge is to make any flower stand out, it is more of a design challenge than anything else”, he affirms.

And couldn’t agree more. The best way to go is to choose the wedding flowers that you like the most and apply them to the trends that you like to design a romantic experience that will leave all your guests speechless.
