Butterflies and Bows tells us how flower trends have adapted as a result of the pandemic

Annabel Grange from Butterflies and Bows tells us how flower trends have adapted as a result of the pandemic Annabel Grange from Butterflies and Bows tells us how flower trends have adapted as a result of the pandemic.

Bouquets and buttonholes –  “When restrictions were in place, brides were asking for small bouquets, but now things are getting back to normal we’re seeing more voluptuous versions. The trending style is still a more natural look using seasonal flowers. I like to include larger blousy blooms such as peonies, roses, dahlias or hydrangeas along with smaller delicate versions, often with a lovely scent like lisianthus, freesias, astilbes and gypsophila. I usually add pale green eucalyptus instead of strong green leaves as it gives a softer look.” 

Backdrops – “Drapes and fairylight backdrops are still very popular, especially for autumn and winter weddings. They’re also really useful in village halls to hide equipment and notice boards or in properties without a focal point. I’m seeing a move towards free-standing arches. These can be used for a civil ceremony then behind moved behind the top table for photographs. They’re generally easy to move to different locations, which can make your pictures far more interesting. We decorate them with silk and/or fresh flowers and greenery, but we also do sculpted balloon arches which can have flowers added.”

Venue styling – “Older venues or barns have pillars, post railings and alcoves which can be decorated. Opt for flowers and greenery, these will look gorgeous, especially when you add LED lights to them. Trees and bushes also look pretty at night and can be decorated with lights or up-lighters. Modern venues and marquees will have less natural features, so to create a strong impression use large centrepieces. Often less is more, and just using a voluminous centrepiece with a large top table flower display and pedestal flowers on each side will create a real showstopper. Where there are fixture points available, consider a large horizontal flower hoop as a focal point.”
