Wedding flower design continues to evolve and change as weddings become less about tradition and more about what the couple envisions for their event.
Whether it be a modernly-styled affair or a romantic vintage-inspired soiree, the floral details of a wedding are the icing on the cake to make your wedding day’s theme and vision come together.
Sue Shunta from freshdesign flowers provided not only some great insight into a few different styles of wedding flowers, but some gorgeous images of freshdesign’s work. Use these to come up with wedding flower ideas for your big day.
Deciding on Flowers
What inspires brides to choose their particular wedding flowers runs the gamut. From a sentimental attachment to a particular wedding flower to a chosen color to help provide those finishing touches that make the style of your event come together. Fall in love with your floral designer’s work and let their artistic eye and talent help guide you through the process.
Your wedding venue can also make a huge impact and play into the chosen floral styles. Stately historic venues such as the Pfister Hotel call for classic style that incorporates soft, lush flowers. While the Milwaukee Art Museum begs for a more modern approach with fresh clean lines and architectural-inspired vessels.
While there are many different types of floral design, the weddings featured below cover four design styles with a modern approach executed flawlessly by the experts at freshdesign: Vintage, Crisp Modern, Classic and Subtle Modern.
Vintage Wedding Flowers
What’s so fun about vintage weddings is the ability to be creative. Many brides choose to incorporate vintage elements into their day, while still having classic and modern accents. As shown in the images below, the use of antique vases, peacock feathers and garden flowers adds the vintage feel with a certain modern elegance.
For this wedding, the bride collected and provided recycled vessels in shades of white, pink and green and requested gladiolas as the flower had sentimental value for her. The varying sizes and shapes of vases still requires an artistic eye to make everything be cohesive and work together to make one centerpiece.
The palette chosen by the bride was loosely based on shades of berry, ranging from deep red to muted hot pinks. (Gorgeous images provided by m three studio).
Crisp Modern Wedding Flowers
This next wedding took place at the modern Pier Wisconsin where the room was filled with sunlight and simple vessels topped with texture-rich blooms.
The palette incorporated whites and greens with a pop of cobalt to pull in the bridesmaid dresses. Hydrangea, orchids and spray roses were used to provide a full, lush, exquisite display of flowers. Absolutely gorgeous. (These lovely images below were provided by Emily Johnson Photography).
Classic Wedding Flowers
A gorgeous tented affair, this wedding reception was held at Lake Park Bistro. The bride made the navy runners herself and asked for lush, classic flowers in shades of white, ivory and blush.
The freshdesign team incorporated a collection of their favorites: hydrangea, roses, spray roses, tulips, astilbe and peonies. (Beautiful pictures courtesy of The McCartneys Photograhy).
Subtle Modern Wedding Flowers
This wedding took place at the unparalleled Milwaukee Art Museum. The Art Museum is definitely one of those spaces that define your wedding and theme.
The modern architecture and crisp lines are the perfect backdrop for splashes of bright colors with elevated displays to accent the expansive space. (Below are more gorgeous images from m three studio).
