2016 wedding planning is well underway, and the experts are reporting that many of the popular themes from 2015 weddings are still trending. Although the goal of every wedding is romance, this year’s ceremonies seem to especially emphasize a return to traditional romantic nuance. Muted color schemes – such as blush pinks and gray blues – hearken back to the days of old fashioned wedding ceremonies. Enchanting illumination, via candles or a string of Edison bulbs, supplies glowing ambient light.
There are also trends in floral options this year – pastels are replacing vibrant blooms, bouquets are not all the same, but complementary; and centerpieces are soaring to new heights. Tall centerpieces are deserving of all the attention given to them this year – their impressive stature makes a beautiful floral statement that is both dazzling and dramatic. And while high centerpieces are all the rage, they are showing up at wedding receptions in a wide variety of designs and styles.
There are many ways to create a tall centerpiece all your own. Choosing flowers such as calla lilies or gladiolus will deliver the elegant height; adding decorative branches draped with vintage candles add inventive lighting. A tall glass cylinder with a floral arrangement perched on top can be filled with floating wildflowers or exotics like orchids; metallic candlesticks can support flowers high above the table.
Tall centerpieces work well in any setting and with any theme; but they are especially impressive in large spaces, drawing the eye up to the open air – be it vaulted ceiling or blue sky.When it comes to wedding flowers, the experienced floral designers at Mission Viejo Florist are happy to consult with you to discuss the style that will represent and bring your vision to life.
