We couldn’t continue searching for the best wedding trends in 2022 without covering bridal bouquet flower trends. With so many ideas, we’ve pulled together top trends that seem to come up again and again. This list is an absolute must for the trendy bride who wants to walk down the aisle with a non-traditional flower bouquet.
Native Australian flora
When overseas travel stopped, we were forced to explore our own backyard. As a result, we have a new appreciation for Australia’s natural beauty, especially its native flora and fauna. So you can expect to see more native flowers in season in bridal bouquets and floral arrangements. Think bundles of earth tones, soft shapes and textures that give an ode to the landscape.
Bold pops of colour
Life after lockdown has created a lust for all things that are full of life, and wedding florals are no different. The colour palette for bridal bouquets in 2022 is full of bold pops of colour. As brides look to make a statement with their florals, you can expect to see more purples and reds making an appearance coming down the aisle.
One of the most popular bridal bouquet flower trends is the cascading bouquet. This floral wedding trend is perfect for the unconventional bride looking for a non-traditional bouquet. The shape of cascading bouquets is dramatic and elegant, making it the perfect opportunity to use rare, more exotic blooms like orchids and lilacs.
An interesting way brides are adding dimension to their bridal bouquets is with dried flowers, grasses and preserved accents. For example, brides are pairing flowers with something unexpected and exciting, like a dried palm or in-season foliage. The combination creates a unique finish that’s perfect for the trendy bride.
Brides are giving the classic posey bouquet a new touch. Instead of short and round, this bouquet is making a dramatic shift to flowers such as sweetpeas, hydrangeas, and dahlias. The final look gives the appearance of understated luxury and ties the bride and bridesmaids' looks together perfectly.
Delicate and fresh
For the bride leaning into the vintage and glamour trend, then you might consider a bouquet of Lily of the valley. This delicate white flower was liked by brides such as Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn. It’s the epitome of glamour, beauty and romance without being the star of the show but rather the perfect accessory.
The last wedding bouquet trend on our list is structured bouquets. The structured bouquet is strong and expressive, tying together all of the trends we mentioned above. This bridal bouquet uses colour, texture, shapes and layering to create mystery and depth. Usually, there’s a common colour theme with a contrasting element, such as a bold coloured flower.
Bridal bouquet flower trends in 2022 are everything and more. From bold pops of colour to understated luxury, these bouquets give a new twist to an age-old tradition. We’re excited to see what brides choose to hold as they walk down the aisle.
