Floral wedding trends for 2023

As wedding season is now in full swing, we take a look at some of the latest wedding flower trends for 2023.

Seasonal is in

What better way to look the part than by adding those must-have seasonal wedding flowers. From spring tulips, primroses, snowdrops, sweet pea, freesias (their aroma alone is to die for!), and not forgetting forget-me-nots, to summer gardenias, cornflowers, roses, carnations, and sunflowers, to really put a smile on your face.

Make it vibrant!

While we all love those more traditional pastel colours, whites, and greens, we’re expecting to see a lot more use of colour-tastic florals with a multitude of colours, shades, and tones.

Less is more

There’ll be a big move to use less foliage and greenery to accentuate floral bouquets and centrepieces, with a slant towards smaller, stand-alone floral features, and handheld bouquets.

Dried flower power

Remember those pressed floral displays you made when you were a child, well, they’re making a comeback! Pressed or dried floral arrangements can be used on wedding stationary, wedding favours, as table decorations, and much more! They are a far more sustainable alternative to fresh flowers too!

Ring of flowers

There will be a trend towards adding a ring, or circle, of floral decorations around wedding cakes this year as the garden, woodland-inspired look, still creates a big impact.

Sustainability is king

Always think about reuse, recycling, waste, and re-purposing wedding flowers. Flowers can always be carried through from the wedding ceremony right through to the wedding reception area. Posies and bouquets could also be given away as wedding favours or separated into recyclable jars and used as table decorations or wedding favours. Never use plastic. Always source locally.
