Spring Wedding Bouquets That Bloom with Beauty

Just as gown styles come and go and the latest updo may or may not involve braids a la Game of Thrones, floral trends for weddings are equally as fickle.
For help, we reached out to Benjamin Newbold, creative director of Floral & Events for Winston Flowers, to find out some of the hottest spring wedding bouquets for upcoming nuptials. Here are a few tips he shared for giving your bouquet that extra “wow” factor.
- Smaller varieties of flowers paired with textures is a very popular choice for bouquets. Specifically, ranunculus and sweet pea with their ruffled petals add a touch of softness to any floral arrangement walking down the aisle.

- As it turns out, flowers are taking a backseat to other greenery in bouquets these days. More textures with fewer or even no flowers is definitely trending at the moment. It’s all about interesting foliage, berries, and vines that offer a look of abundance to the bouquet—with less focus on the actual flower heads.
- Wildflowers such as feverfew, Queen Anne’s Lace, nigella, or even eryngium are a popular choice in lieu of more traditional blooms. This is especially true for florals that are part of rustic weddings in the countryside, on a farm, or in coastal Cape Cod or Maine.

- Finally, the natural look of a garden is beautiful to capture in a bouquet, and adding clematis and jasmine vines is an elegant way to add movement to the arrangement. Vines add softness and fluidity to the arrangement while garden roses harken back to an early era. This style is perfect for all types of upscale, elegant weddings, from a hotel ballroom to a beautiful outdoor setting.
