Royal Wedding Flower Fever

11 May 2018

Wedding Fever hits the UK!

The most talked about wedding of 2018 is nearly here! Yes that is right, we are counting down the days until Meghan Markle marries her (and our!) Prince Harry at Windsor Castle on May 19th.

Florists and Brides-to -be will be watching closely to see which flowers the couple have picked for the big day. Floral designer Philippa Craddock and her team of highly skilled florists will be creating the displays and bridal bouquet for the Wedding. But the question on every flower lovers lips - what flowers will be used?

Rumour has it Meghan will have a mainly white bouquet which will include Peonies, Garden Roses, Lily of the Valley, Astrantia, Ranunculus and Sweet Peas to give a full, luxurious bridal bouquet with hints of royal tradition. Meghan is believed to be a big fan of Peonies (which are beautifully elegant, and luckily for Ms. Markle are just in season!) so these are a likely addition, along with Lily of the Valley which has been featured in many Royal bouquets in the past, so it is believed Meghan will respect this special family tradition. Meghan has proved to be a fashion leader, so we think her bridal bouquet will have a real classic but stylish feel to it, with little hints of what mean to her and Harry.

And the royal wedding reception flowers? A little birdy suggests luscious green foliage and plants with pops of romantic colour will be used to create a stunning wedding reception to make guests go WOW. This will be where the happy couple will really be able to show their style and create a real personal impact to their big day. The wedding flowers will be donated to local charities after the event, which we think is a lovely touch!

So how will this impact your wedding flower choices? Take the time to research what style and design you like, along with colour palette abd tones to suit your dress and wedding theme. Pinterest is great for inspiration, but just keep in mind these images may have been filtered affecting the colour of the blooms and often no reference to seasonalitly or budgets.
