Recently, I had the opportunity to work with some amazing vendors on an editorial shoot all about 2022 wedding trends! I’ll be breaking it down over the next couple of months, showing you all of the incredible style options there are out there. From gorgeous gowns to inspiring reception tables, to the most stunning (and delicious!) cakes! To kick us off, I wanted to share some of the dreamy floral inspiration created by Tulips and Twigs. She did a wonderful job coming up with bouquets to match the trends we think you’ll be seeing in 2022. Gaye McNair, the owner, has been working with flowers for many years, stemming from her love of gardening.
Baby’s Breath is back, and it’s no longer just a grocery store flower! This versatile flower can be styled into dramatic displays. It pairs light and airy with incredible texture. Paired with orchids and roses, it is elevated to an elegant look. So, we’ll be seeing more of baby’s breath in 2022 with large installations, and even dyed in different colors. Think of fluffy clouds and ethereal details. It adds the perfect amount of texture and height to backdrops, centerpieces, and bridal bouquets!
White, soft romance never goes out of style! But let’s add a little pop of color to make all the different white textures really show off. Lush garden roses “Leonora” have a creamy hue against white calla lilies, spray roses, and tulips. Then, white snapdragons bring line to the bouquet, and Belladonna delphinium brings in a touch of blue. Dainty white narcissus and spray roses dance above. Finally, flowing, hand-dyed silk ribbon from Silk and Willow catches the slightest breeze, adding movement. This bouquet’s loose shape and garden greenery make the design fresh and easy.
Move over pampas grass! We must have garden roses and ranunculus with all their layers of petals! First, garden spray roses, picotee ranunculus, orange double tulips for a pop of color. Then, there’s white agapanthus for additional interest, and the texture whispers romance for this bouquet. Deep burgundy astrantia and clematis vines add movement. Ribbon from Silk and Willow, hand-dyed silk using organically grown botanicals, highlights the connection to nature this bride embraces. This bouquet and gown give all the soft romance while being just unconventional enough to fill that bohemian heart!
We are loving more whimsy and color! What an unforgettable combination of the deep red garden roses “Juliette” and “Piano Red,” orange Pon Pon Ranunculus, and dark purple lisianthus! Light blue hyacinths add texture and a slight fragrance. Shouldn’t every bridal bouquet have a scent that will forever spark memories for the bride? We’ll be seeing more of this whimsical design with flowers popping out at different levels. We love the movement of flowers and the way individual blooms can be seen and appreciated. And color? Yes, please!
The Naturalist has an emphasis on bringing nature into the overall design. This goes hand in hand with the trend in floristry to abandon the use of floral foam with its harmful impact on the environment. Small narcissus and thornless green blackberries make this bridal bouquet look as if it’s been gathered from the garden, all collared with houseplant foliage. Then, lisianthus and hellebores add movement above the bouquet. Pon Pon Ranunculus are so dramatic with their color variation, adding texture and the invitation to touch their softness!
I loved seeing all these beautiful bridal bouquets that so perfectly encapsulated their styles. It’s always such a joy to work with different vendors, and I enjoyed capturing these beautiful brides with their bouquets.
