We wanted to write a little piece for website this week as Valentine's madness aside, it's been a really busy start to 2024 for lots of gorgeous soon-to-be newlyweds who've popped into the shop! It's that time of year again where we begin to dive back into prepping stunning arrangements of wedding florals. We like to think we've made a name for ourselves as one of Lancashire's leading floral styling experts at Aspen & Ivy. With hundreds of weddings we've now had the pleasure of contributing to, it's not left us much time to write blogs! But we thought we'd share a handful of floral trends sweeping through the UK wedding scene in 2024 to help provide some inspo. So whether you're dreaming of an intimate affair or a lavish celebration, these trends are sure to inspire and elevate your special day and make it truly memorable.
Sustainability is no longer just a buzzword—it's a way of life, even in the world of weddings. In 2024, we're seeing couples gravitating towards eco-conscious floral choices. Think repurposed greenery, and compostable floral arrangements. We love seeing couple's with a stunning backdrop for their wedding but also embracing Mother Nature while leaving behind a minimal carbon footprint on their big day!
Bold and Unexpected Colour Palettes:
Traditional pastels are often being switched out for vibrant, eye-catching hues! This year, we're seeing couples opt for bold and unexpected colour palettes that make a statement. From rich jewel tones like emerald green to playful pops of citrusy colours, the possibilities are endless. Don't be afraid to let your personality shine through with a colour palette that truly reflects your unique style.
Dried Florals and Grasses:
Embrace the rustic charm of dried florals and grasses for a bohemian-inspired wedding look. From dried pampas grass to preserved eucalyptus leaves, these textural elements add depth and dimension to any arrangement. Mix and match with fresh blooms for a whimsical yet sophisticated vibe that's sure to impress your loved ones regardless of the season.
Take your wedding décor to new heights with jaw-dropping statement installations. From stunning floral arches to tapestry walls, these show-stopping pieces create a breathtaking focal point for your ceremony or reception. Let your imagination run wild and watch as your wildest floral dreams come to life before your very eyes.
Infuse your wedding florals with personal touches that speak to your own love story. We saw this quite a bit throughout 2023 and think it's amazing. Whether it's incorporating blooms that hold sentimental value or creating custom floral monograms, personalised florals add an extra layer of meaning to your special day. Work closely with our team to bring your vision to life and create floral arrangements that are as unique as you are.
