Monday, July 3rd, 2017

If you are already thinking ahead to this autumn's floral fashions, then you have a lot in store. It is time to get excited for dark fabrics with bright contrasts, greenery galore, silken sheen and the most textured, warm hued autumn flowers. Looking forward to drops in temperature and leaves falling might seem odd to some people, but it makes total sense when you know it means the onset of the autumn wedding season. Keep reading for a bride's guide of trending autumn floral fashions you won't want to miss:

Select Seasonal Autumn Flowers

Dahlias, lilies, gerberas daisies and celosia. Alstromeria, chrysanthemums and yarrow flowers. Bridal bouquets and lavish centrepieces composed of these seasonal flowers are already trending and definitely growing in popularity. With a growing awareness of environmental impact and love for the local movement, each year more and more brides are choosing their flowers in-season and sourcing as many local blooms as possible. If you're interested in taking a similarly eco-friendly stance on the day that you exchange your vows, as a couple you can always talk with your wedding florist.

Simply Can't Deny That Dahlia Appeal

Dahlias are as popular as ever this season. You will probably even catch them popping up at weddings this summer, and extending all the way into autumn.

Which Dahlia Varieties?

Keep your eyes out for the much sought-after Cafe au Lait, with colours ranging from blush to peach to a creamy beige. Peaches and Cream dahlia varieties strikingly contrast colours light pink, red, yellow and white tipped petals. Meanwhile, Labyrinth presents a hot pink exclusive, with funky petals that resemble the curve and swerve of calla lilies.

Throwback To Old Flower 'Favourites'

Brides and wedding florists alike used to wilt at the very thought of mums, carnations and zinnias sneaking their way into their flower arrangements. 'I won't! I won't! I won't!' could be heard all the way down and from the back of the aisle. Not exactly graceful, which is why we call the trend flower 'favourites' in quotations.

Astonishingly, these blooms are now blasting off, showing up all over brides' news feeds on Instagram and Pinterest. They are quickly becoming part of some of the most popular floral design, not just for brides but also at openings, receptions and events. Watch for them in centrepieces this autumn.

Dark and Heavy Colours

Don't look so down! The stormy, darker hues and 'muddy' tones are going to be especially big this autumn. The neutral and low hue contrasts will help to balance out autumn wedding bouquets that use a single colour or pale, subdued coloured blossoms like peach, melon, dulce de leche and pale or flame blue.  

Soft Pastels, Pinks and Grey Notes

Riding on the trail of the same reasoning that inspired 'dark and heavy colours,' we are seeing a lot of light to pale pinks, pastels, and grey hues in flower arrangements, particularly of roses and the ever adorable peonies. Expect complimentary greenery in these arrangements, like Dusty Miller, eucalyptus leaves, and lots of succulent varieties.

Bridal Flower Fashion 2016: 4 Bridal Bouquet Styles You’ll Love This Autumn

Sunday, October 16th, 2016

After a stunning peak (and in some cases revealing) look at Bridal Fashion Week, we are just overwhelmed and excited by what gorgeous gowns and bridal bouquet styles are out this 2016 wedding season.

1. Natural, Wild and “Reaching” Bridal Bouquet Styles

Natural, wild and “reaching” bridal bouquet styles are popping up this year in a prelude to the autumn season. These wedding bouquets cannot be contained, but are absolutely beautiful, lush and widespread, loose arrangements of blossoms, bright petals and foliage, with a freshly picked and in-the-wild appearance that any bride will delight in as she walks down the aisle.

2. Look Out for Bridal Bouquet Styles Incorporating Lighter, Elevated Earth Tones

Look out for bridal bouquet styles incorporating lighter, elevated earth tones tempered by garden roses, spray roses and dahlias, or making careful use of foraged greenery and woodland branches. This is somewhat of a departure from previous years’ more antiquated and rustic style bridal bouquets. Not to say that vintage is totally out of fashion, but there is a brighter, chic spin being placed on this year’s arrangements. You can expect more crystals, satin ribbons, rosebuds and succulents in bouquets as well as floral accessories, such as brooches, rings, earrings and necklaces—all of which say elegance and luxury.

3. Foodie Inspired Autumn Wedding Flowers 

A trend we are seeing across wedding event flowers, lots of bridal bouquet styles are going for organic, garden-fresh arrangements that is wonderful to breath in as is visually entrancing (technically edible, too!). Take in arrangements that are made up of artichoke blossoms, raspberries, edible herbs, sweet peas with calla lilies, and even fruits.

4. Wheat is So Versatile

Wheat is so versatile it lets you place your own unique stamp and creative spin on your special day. Don’t consider yourself a ‘creative’ type? Well, fortunately, there is a wonderful selection of wheat sheaves and design ideas from Todich Floral Design available for you to see in person at their upcoming exhibition, which is almost here!

Inspiring Flower Decorations for October and November Weddings

Wednesday, November 11th, 2015

The months of September, October and November are a truly beautiful time in Britain and offer plenty of inspiration for autumn bridal flowers and fall wedding ideas. The light is truly beautiful this time of year so makes for wonderful photos in the afternoon. And even though it gets darker earlier, an autumn wedding is the perfect opportunity to get creative with lighting – fairy lights and candles on tables – and create a magical day and evening for everyone. Leaves in all their shapes and colours are also natural elements that can be additions to autumn wedding bouquets as well as featuring as table decorations or inspiring invitation, thank you-notes and confetti design.

Leaf love for autumn weddings. Leaves are the real stars of autumn, looking beautiful in the afternoon light, and provide great inspiration for autumn wedding design. Use them to make up table centrepieces and add to jars filled with tea lights to create beautiful additions to guest’s tables. Crunchy autumn leaves can also be used to fill large vases to make unique table autumn wedding decorations.

Leaves can be an alternative to September and November wedding flowers – this time of year they turn an array of beautiful colours and shades of red, orange and gold. Oak leaves are perfect for a classic English wedding and can be arranged in vases or used to make up autumnal bridal bouquets. Large red leaves added to baby’s breath or leaves added to dark colour bouquets will make unique fall designs. And you could spray them with gold or glitter to add extra glamour. Gold leaves can also be used as place settings – just write the name of each guest in calligraphy on them.

Instead of traditional confetti, use leaf-shaped confetti for guests to throw. Or do away with confetti altogether and get your guests to wave sparkler – they’ll make for stunning photos! Tie autumn leaves together with sprigs of lavender or rosemary and add acorns or cinnamon to make heart-warming table place settings for guests. Autumn leaves can even be scattered up the aisle to create a beautiful outdoor feel for the bride,  groom and guests during the ceremony.

Lighting the way. One of the truly special things about autumn is the golden afternoon light illuminating the parks and woodland and streets scattered with leaves. Capture some of this magic with delicate lighting with your autumn wedding decorations. Strings of fairy lights will create a beautiful atmosphere for an indoor or outdoor wedding and can be used at the ceremony and reception. Fairy lights strung round trees will make a stunning entrance to the reception area for your guests, so no one will mind the fact that the night draws in sooner on these autumn days!

Lanterns and glasses filled with tea lights also creates a magical feel, and you can get creative with the autumn wedding theme by using the produce of the season to hold candles. Pumpkins, squashes and hollowed out apples will all make perfect candle holders creating colourful additions to tables.

Our Autumn Flower Dress – London Fashion Week

Monday, October 14th, 2013

The London florist Todich Floral Design  has recently had the pleasure of designing a magnificent window display for a French Brasserie based in Central London.  Inspired by the autumn season and London Fashion week, the team worked together to create a wondrous display that combined fresh flowers in London with fabrics, foliage and jewellery.

IMG_7264_resizeWe are an event florist in London who regularly designs bespoke flower displays for the window of Brassiere Chavot. Once a month our talented team come up with ideas by creating large mood boards with sketches, flowers  from London and fabric s samples as part of a detailed design process.

We base a lot of our ideas on seasonality, and always use the freshest plants and herbs available. To make us stand out from the crowd we also add antique furnishings and props to enhance the look of the window.  Our spring display included pretty blossoms planted in rustic wicker baskets and our summer display contained sunflowers which were placed in pre-war suitcases. Our florists always aim to impress our clients, their diners and passers-by.

Autumn is a stunning time of year as it casts the UK into a beautiful amber hue. The leaves on the trees change colour into a mix of spicy red burnt orange, natural greens and browns, this month our floristry team wanted to create a flower window display based on the colourful tones of the autumn season.

Influenced by London fashion week, our head designer Laura Fisher managed to source an antique French mannequin that fitted perfectly for the display. The mannequin was set to be dressed with floor length autumnal attire which would be made entirely with event flowers and foliage.

IMG_7232_resizeFirstly, the dress was shaped with chicken wire that was tied around the waist of the mannequin; when secured tightly we then carefully weaved English moss around the wire frame. The London flower dress was made up with preserved oak leaves, dried hydrangea heads, delicate berries and Vanda orchids which were in a beautiful blend of autumnal shades.

The mannequin stood at the centre of the window on a circular bed of moss. The figure was surrounded by conifer trees and rustic wooden crates which was loved by the owner of the restaurant.

We also teamed up with London jewellers Tateossian, who donated a bespoke necklace which sat around the neck of the mannequin.

We are thrilled that our client loves our fashion inspired window display, and look forward to future designs for the upcoming winter season.
