From eco-friendly bouquets to floral moon gates, we take a look at some of the biggest wedding flower trends for 2020.

Within the wedding world, each year different trends dominate. And much like bridal gowns, wedding décor and themes, wedding flowers are no exception. 

We take a look at some of the biggest wedding flower trends for 2020.

“Green” bouquets

You’d have to be living under a rock not to realise that eco-friendly and even zero waste weddings are all the rage. 

As people become more aware about their wedding day carbon footprint, many brides- and grooms-to-be are thinking carefully about how they can host a wedding day that is kinder to the planet.

When it comes to their wedding flowers, couples are favouring in-season, local blooms over imported varieties, such as banksia, callistemon, waratah and even eucalyptus.

Potted plants

Following on from the eco-friendly wedding theme, potted plants are also the more budget-friendly option and provide extra bang for their buck. They’re also a wonderful keepsake you can take home after your big day. 

Potted plants can be used as table centrepieces, escort cards, wedding favours and lined along the aisle at your ceremony. Popular options include orchids, cacti, succulents and potted herbs.

Floral moon gates

This trend really started gaining traction in 2019 but it shows no sign of abating, with brides striving to up the “wow” factor when it comes to their wedding arbours.

Floral moon gates provide a stunning backdrop during your wedding ceremony, but can also be used to frame your bridal table, as a photo booth backdrop or for framing your wedding cake table.

Dried flowers

Perhaps the most surprising addition on the list of wedding flower trends for 2020, dried flowers – once the mainstay of vintage and rustic style weddings – have now gone mainstream. 

Channelling a 1970s bohemian aesthetic, dried flowers in soft, pastel colours – like the pink pampas grass – are being used throughout wedding decor, bouquets and even in hairpieces.

Dried palms, pink pampas plumes and unusual grasses are also popular for wild bridal bouquets and used to create show-stopping décor.

Oversized bouquets

Demure, structured bridal bouquets are a thing of the past, with brides now favouring opulent, oversized bouquets with instant impact. 

Also known as free form bouquets, oversized bouquets add personality to your bridal style and are a bold addition to your overall decor.
