The expert advice of Elizabeth and Carla and their professional floral arrangement shop in the I Fiori delle Regine office makes choosing floral decor simple.

Remember the choice of flowers is not always selected to match the decor, the secret language of floristry can be very symbolic for the next stage in a bride´s life.

1. Color combinations

Elisabeth and Carla recommend that brides choose colors and combinations depending on the style that they want to evoke: mauve hues and shimmering blues are a popular combination for 2016, based on the two Pantone colors of the year. Creamy shades of white work brilliantly alongside materials such as glass and crystal.

For an elegant wedding with a contemporary floral arrangement, I Fiori delle Regine recommend picking a base of pinks and purple with small doses of gray and black.

3. Over-sized centerpieces

Pastel tones are in the spotlight for 2016, so stacking your wedding tables with big bursts of pale colored flowers will not be `too much´. The gentle and delicate tones will draw attention but neither take away or overcrowd the table and your guests.

4. Gravity-defying flowers

The trend this year are beautiful arrangements that defy gravity: flowers hang from every surface, including lanterns and are woven with sparkling lights. This both adds some warmth and a dose of modernity to classical wedding decor.

5. Local wild plants

A new trend with floral arrangements is for eco friendly flowers. Brides request that all the flowers and greens are locally sourced and in season so that their wedding decor is reflective of the venue location – As well as having Kudos for the environment, a lovely location theme is created for the day.
