2016 is calling all brides to think current, and there’s no better way to express your contemporary side than with your floral arrangements. We’ve found the best sleek bridal bouquets that appeal to a bride looking to round out her modern wedding.

Old-fashioned is out and new-fashioned is in. With the wave of modernity currently prevailing in the wedding industry, we’ve seen a limitless amount of creativity popping up. Wedding gowns are more avant-garde, color schemes are drifting away from the soft tones into the deeper hues, and even flowers are getting revamped.

Always a fixture at weddings, in the last few years, flowers have been whimsical and sweet additions to complement the rustic, natural theme that was so dominating. Vintage was the archetype to follow and the winds are shifting now; couples are choosing more bold and dramatic arrangements in the form of color or exotic flowers. Other couples are picking simple flowers with stark colors that amp the modernistic wedding trend.

It’s quite refreshing to see the wedding industry drift towards new ideas and styles. Whatever suits your contemporary tastes, the wildflowers have fled and the new-age wedding bouquets are here.
