Roots, Fruits & Flowers on bridal trends for 2013

Hallo everyone!

I’m really delighted to bring you another in my ‘bridal trends’ series of blog posts today. I’ve admired Di’s work for quite a while now. It manages to be a harmonious synthesis of a number of different (and at times contrasting) aspects:  the modern and the historical; the imaginative and the familiar; the creative and the very refined; and the feminine too. 

Over to Di for an informative explanation on what floral trends to expect this year.

 

‘Brides are still looking back to bygone eras for inspiration and with over a century of groundbreaking trends behind us, who can blame them!

The early 1900s is one of our more popular styles being requested for 2013, bridal bouquets were big and trailing and wildly natural in style. This particular style of bouquet has a lot of movement in it and prances and glides effortlessly in tandem with a flowing dress.

The hand-tied bouquet will always remain popular with brides, again, natural and loose in style. Flowers with particular meaning and where possible, seasonal local flowers, are our most common request at the moment

Influence from the 1940s and 1950s is still strong, with pretty posies complementing knee-length dresses and tea dresses perfectly. We are seeing a strong return to what some may consider more traditional ‘older fashioned’ flower types as a nod to what the bride’s mother/grandmother may have had in her own wedding bouquet.

Overall, 2013 is shaping up to be an interesting year with brides starting to look for something different from the recent trends of the past few years. As always, the bridal flowers are very much dictated by the dress so we eagerly await the next collections. If anyone wishes to get me a front row seat at the Paris shows, I will of course oblige.’

Thank you so much to Di for taking the time to share some of her fantastic insight on my blog. If you’ve not visited her shop, Roots, Fruits & Flowers on Great Western Road in Glasgow, you should definitely pop round. She always has the most amazing window displays and fantastic selection of flowers, and of course, her knowledge, creativity and passion are more than evident in her beautiful work!
