Brides are opting to experiment with bolder and brighter colour choices in their wedding florals.  

“Last year, bold colours started to make a comeback and that trend is to stay for a while,” says Lauren Bercier and Laken Swan, co-founders of Something Borrowed Blooms

“We’re seeing many of our 2022 brides opting for bolder colour palettes. Expect to see lots of bright pinks, purples, reds, and oranges this year.”  


Dried flower installations

2021 saw a rise in popularity for dried wedding flowers, so it’s only natural that this trend will continue into 2022. Known for their longevity and durability, dried flowers can make beautiful accent pieces.  

“Venue decoration is a huge part of your flower budget,” says Hayley Scott, owner of Hayley Scott Blooms. “If you're opting for dried flowers and you don't need to keep them afterwards, speak to your florist about hiring hanging installations instead. Here at Hayley Scott Blooms, we offer pre-made dried hanging installations which are hired for a fee, with colour palettes and bespoke flower choices catered for.” 

A mix of fresh and dried

If you want a whimsical feel for your wedding bouquet, try incorporating a mix of dried and fresh florals. “Including a touch of neutral, dried flowers such as pampas grass or bunny tails with fresh flowers is a huge trend, and adds to the rustic feel of a wildflower look,” Hayley Scott explains.

“Eco-friendly and sustainable, dried flowers have become a popular trend for wedding flowers,” says Melanie Watling, owner of independent wedding and events florist company Harebell & Holly

“From simple tied posies of just one dried variety to larger mixed flower bouquets, they are beautiful on their own but incorporating them with fresh flowers can add texture and interest to designs for any type of wedding theme.”

For a boho wedding theme, make sure to layer textural elements in your wedding décor. 

“Wedding and rental trends always tend to follow interior design and with that, it should be no surprise that rattan, pampas and dried floral elements will be a popular choice this year,” says Lauren Bercier and Laken Swan.  

“You’ll see this trend pulled into wedding florals, along with ceremony and reception décor as well.”  

Succulent bouquets

For a truly unique wedding bouquet, look to succulents. Perfect for those with hayfever allergies, these statement plants can also make a beautiful memento of your wedding day.  

“They are ideal for adding texture and structure to a bouquet to create a wonderful combination with flowers and foliage or you can simply keep them on their own,” explains Louise Hartley-English, owner of Louise Hartley-English Floral Design

“There are numerous different types of succulents available, so you can choose their shapes, sizes, and colours to match with your wedding décor/colour scheme and you can source them all year round.” 

You can also keep these statement pieces as a pot plant to serve as a beautiful reminder of your special day.  

Grand designs

Many couples are looking for extravagant floral displays to include in their wedding.  

“Couples are leaning towards larger scaled designs this year with more emphasis on the ceremony décor,” says Louise Roots, owner of Louise Roots Wedding & Event Florist.

“Statement backdrops and arches and aisle flowers are in demand.

“Couples are transforming their venues and welcoming their guests with statement door arches and ceiling flowers. Brides are braver than ever and opting for larger, loose and informal bouquets with lots of mixed foliage and texture.”
