Hayley Rees from Misselthwaite Flowers Ltd tells us her trend predictions for 2022.
"Covid has meant couples have had to rearrange everything and, as a florist, I was worried that flowers were going to be one of the first things to be stripped down but couples have been using the last year as an excuse to go all out, and who can blame them? My brides, in particular, are so excited to be planning again, waving goodbye to the likes of flower walls and hello to big statement pieces like climbing stair garlands and outdoor arrangements.
“Couples have waited for what seems like a lifetime for their big day, and they are choosing romantic colours for the ultimate fairytale wedding. Flowers such as peonies, roses and hydrangeas are proving popular for this trend, as their fluffy textures and deep range of colours ooze a utopian wedding.
“Greenery! And lots of it! Couples are looking for a more natural look to complement their picturesque barn or outdoor settings, and this trend ticks all the floral styling boxes! Eucalyptus in all shapes and sizes, ruscus, asparagus fern and olive branches lend themselves perfectly to this trend and can be made into garlands and wreaths to adorn your rustic wedding.
“Geometric shapes are the name of the game here, tall rectangular centrepieces, dripping in champagne and coffee coloured flowers, complemented by aspidistra leaves sprayed in glittering golds or sparkling silvers. Greenery seems to be popular with this trend also, with muted cream and peach roses teamed with champagne coloured bridesmaids’ dresses, this trend is a winner!”
