Wedding Flowers: Creative Bouquet Idea

A huge trend in weddings this year are DIY projects!  Some projects are to add a little personality to your wedding while other DIY projects are done to save money.  Many brides want to tackle making the personal flowers including the bridal bouquets to save money.  If you aren’t a florist this project can seem easy but can actually be difficult to achieve the look you want, especially if you want an assortment of flowers.  A new creative trend in making your own bouquet is to “bunch”  flowers together.  This not only makes a bold and creative statement but makes it much easier to assemble your own bouquet.

To achieve this look you can use the same flowers in different shades or different flowers in either the same or different colors.

You can also use this “bunching” look to make a statement on the guest tables.

Top Wedding Flowers 2013

According to there are ten flowers that will be on trend in 2013.  Before going to meet with your florist it is always good to have an idea of flowers you like and maybe more importantly what you don’t like.  I suggest looking in magazines and on-line and saving as many pictures of bouquets and centerpieces.  Many brides find that after saving the images they like, they see many of the same flowers in each of the pictures.  Whether you like lush and large arrangements or modern and simplistic you will probably see some of the flowers and plants you love in this list!
