Let’s face it, can anything take the place of flowers at weddings? Can you think of any? We can’t think of any too!

Though a lot has been changing in the way weddings are planned and run, we are confident that wedding flowers will still hold their unique position. That is why we will be telling you eight wedding flower trends you should look out for in 2021!

It doesn’t matter if you have a new wedding planner, a small get-together, or doing a retouch to a postponed wedding plan; here are wedding flower trends to consider in 2021.

●      Statement Wedding Ceremony Backdrops

It’s a trend now for couples to opt for smaller weddings. However, this creates an opportunity to focus on the beautiful flowers added to any setting.

In 2021, it is speculated that an over-the-top arrangement will be a considerable flower trend. So, don’t be left out on the wedding flower trend.

●      Neutral and White Wedding Flowers

White color is often used as a symbol of peace and balance, and just coming out of the gloomy events of 2020 makes it even more desirable.

Many couples are more than grateful to witness their wedding and need a calming hue; hence, we see this trend of wedding flowers on the increase.

We also see wholesalers and floral designers bleach leafy plants instead of using their traditional green color to give that free-spirited look of a loose arrangement. You can use flowers with different shades of white to get the best effect. 

●      Spray-Painted Flowers

Some plants such as succulents, palm leaves, pampas grass, and anthurium look amazing when painted. That is why we see many floral and event designers using brightly-colored spray paints to lighten up the color of the flowers.

Using spray paint on flowers to amp up ordinary arrangements and blooms is a wedding flower trend you should look out for in 2021. For a suggestion, Baby’s breath is among the popular choices to consider. 

●      Nature-inspired and Wildflower Arrangements

Some couples are drawn to the whimsical look of this flower trend. Locally-grown and seasonal flowers such as sunflowers, blue thistles, poppies, etc. are a common choice in this floral arrangement, mainly because of the laid-back vibe it adds to the wedding.

With the social distancing rules in place, this floral arrangement gives a unique style to your wedding with a light-hearted and not too serious feel.

●      Greenery and Dried Flowers

If you are a couple drawn to vintage and rustic wedding styles, this wedding flower trend is definitely for you. 

Dried flowers and dried greenery such as dried lavender, baby’s breath, daisies, and eucalyptus quickly come to mind. When mixed with fresh botanicals like banksia flowers, pampas grass, Lunaria, and roses, it gives a more catchy look. 

●      Sun Palms

This is another excellent, eye-catching wedding flower trend to look out for in 2021. It doesn’t matter if you are looking for something tropical or if you’re going for the bohemian look; sun palms always fit perfectly! Sun palms are easy to incorporate into a variety of wedding styles and color palettes.

●      Encased Florals

Encased florals is another notable trend you can use to add color to your wedding day. Use this unique style to number your guests’ tables, dress up the cocktail bar, or for other decorations that will marvel your guests.

●      Edible Flowers

Last but certainly not least are the edible flowers. Eating flowers may seem strange, but it isn’t at all. It has been a practice for centuries now.

Edible flowers like roses, pansies, chamomile, lavender buds, and marigolds are a great choice you can use in your salads, fancy cocktails, starters, or even ice cream. However, ensure to double-check with a professional caterer before displaying any edible flower on your tables.

Likewise, you’ll want the other vendors who will help make your wedding come true to be professional and the best at what they do, right? New Mexico Wedding Guide and Expo is here to help you with that!
