What are the trends you are seeing this year for fall and winter florals?
Color! Although I love a good neutral color scheme, colorful
blooms are here to stay. It’s refreshing to see so many couples
branching out and using bright and vibrant florals. From colorful
tablescapes to mismatch bridesmaid dresses, it’s a great time to
experiment with color.
What is your inspiration for fall and winter?
This wedding season surrounds the year’s biggest holidays which are
centered around family. I draw my inspiration from the feelings of
warmth and comfort surrounding these gatherings. I love using the
different textures and deep colors of fall and winter that bring me back
to my days of helping my grandmother decorate for the holidays.
What flowers are readily available in fall and winter?
My favorite flower to source locally in Fall are Dahlias. Such a diverse and
elegant bloom with so many different varieties and ways to style. I also
love using mums and all the different evergreens and berry branches
available this time of year in my designs as well.
What trend do you hope has staying power?
I’m not one who focuses too much on what’s trending as much as I try
to focus on honing in on what speaks to the couple. But, if I had to pick
something, I would say I am loving the new trend of bridesmaids floral
purses. I also always recommend a statement piece. An arch, hanging
chandelier, something will guests will remember. Bonus if we can use it for
both the ceremony and reception. Regardless of what’s trending and what
my couples choose it’s important to remember what the day represents.
