With the Christmas trees and the decorations now taken down and the hectic festive period feeling like a distant memory of eating far too much cheese, and my blood/prosecco levels slowly returning to normal, it’s time to declutter the house, plan my new healthy lifestyle (again), and look forward to the year ahead!

If you’re getting married this year you have not yet thought about your flowers or even a colour scheme yet, here are some of the colours and trends that will be hot this year:

  1. Living Coral

Strange as it may sound floral colour trends over the last few years have been inspired my Pantone’s choice of colour of the year. This year is set to be no different with Living Coral 16-1546 being crowned as 2019’s winner. This warm, soft and naturally nurturing colour is ‘evocative of how coral reefs provide shelter to a diverse kaleidoscope of colour’ and can be mixed with a diverse range of colours.

Used as the central colour with other pinks and cream conjures up a romantic and vintage feel. Or used with a bold teal can be bright, fun and vibrant. To see more colour themes using Living Coral check out Pantone’s website.

2. A Royal Inspiration

The most talked about wedding of 2018 was obviously Prince Harry and Meghan, and what a wedding it was – I loved every single minute of it and was glued to the TV.

As Prince William and Kate’s big day did, Harry and Meghan’s choices will set a trend going forward, and this includes the flowers.

Meghan’s bouquet filled with sweet peas, lily of the valley and astilbe was simple, elegant and pure white; a perfect delicate fairy-tale design. Harry and Meghan mixed simple with the wow factor with their amazing arch flower walls, which are already fast becoming a popular trend. From large arches over the ceremony area to simple vines being weaved around existing furniture or columns, there are many ideas available for every budget.

3. Flower crowns

This trend that exploded last year is set to continue with flower crowns, wrist corsages and all sorts of wearable flowers becoming a playful and stylish wedding staple.

Dramatic and bold florals are also set to be a bit hit this year so maybe mix the two and create a flower crown to remember. If you want a more natural and delicate look just adding gypsophlia into a hair style can transform your look and enhance your theme.

4. Dried Flowers

Silk flowers are beautiful, but an arrangement can be even more beautiful by adding a touch of the natural to your design.  Dried lavender, thyme and pampas grass work well and add depth and interest. Dried hydrangea, gypsophlia.. the possibilities are endless.

In 2019 the trend for incorporating dried flowers is set to be grow, with whole bouquets of dried flowers being used to create a wild and bohemian feel. This natural look can also be seen in the increasing popularity of pampas grasses as well as bouquets made from just foliage for an even more rustic feel.
