Spring Wedding Flowers and Colours

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

Most people will tell you that summer is their favourite season. But here at bridal florist Todich Floral Design, we'd stand to argue that fact, especially when it comes to weddings.

Spring can be one of the best seasons to have a wedding for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, the flowers. This is the season for bright, cheerful wedding flowers. Tulips, daffodils and other beauties are at their prime during spring and you can be sure that you will get these flowers fresh and at a reasonable price.

Tulip wedding bouquets

Tulips, for example, come in such a variety of colours that you will be sure to find the shade you are looking for, or if you are looking to go multicolour, with this wedding flower you will get a palette as wide as you can imagine. One tulip shade that is really pretty is a light dusty purple. This is a shade that will work magnificently on its own. Or you can combine it with bright yellow flowers for a wedding to make a brighter impact.

This is a shade that will work magnificently on its own. Or you can combine it with bright yellow flowers for a wedding to make a brighter impact. If your wedding is going to be more toned down, refined elegance, then intersperse the light purple wedding flowers with deep egglplant coloured ones.

Rose bridal bouquets

Of course, roses are one of the main flowers symbolic of love and give you a whole palette of colours to work with. One really great spring wedding flower idea is the combination of orange, white and yellow roses, with the bridesmaids wearing pale violet dresses. The contrast and the perfect spring palette of this combination really catch the eye.

Using daffodils as spring wedding flowers

Fresh daffodils are hard to get in any other season, so if you are fan of this wedding flower, or the colour yellow, a spring wedding is the perfect opportunity to take full advantage of it. One lovely idea is to use monochromatic daffodil bouquets, with bridesmaids wearing different shades of the spring palette. This combination looks best with pale coloured dresses and bright bridal flowers, as if the dresses and the flowers are bright it can be a bit too much.

Daffodils do not only come in yellow but white as well. There is a light airiness to a bouquet of delicate paperwhites, which cannot be compared to any other flower. Bunched together this flower looks like a collection of pretty little white stars and will look very up-to-date and fresh at a spring wedding. Plus they smell wonderful too!

Spring wedding props

The one tricky part of weddings in the spring is that the weather is not quite as predictable. So you always want to have some kind of rain-proof solution, in case the weather turns on you. One lovely outdoor wedding solution is to have colourful umbrellas hanging over the seating area. If you have an indoor venue, umbrellas can be given away as gifts, and in the UK you can be sure your guests will make use of these even after the wedding has passed.

It’s not only flowers in London that bloom in spring but love as well, so if you have always wanted to have a spring wedding, we say don’t hesitate!

In the lead up to the show we’re running a competition to win £500 worth of wedding flowers and we’ll also be running a competition on our stand, G101 on the day, so be sure to pop buy and meet us if you’re heading down.

We love the opportunity these events provide to meet with brides face to face and help provide inspiration and guidance on bridal flowers for their special day.

Not only does the event give us a chance to meet with clients face to face, it’s also great fun for our wedding florists. London is always as the forefront of design trends, so it’s a fantastic but also extremely competitive place to work, and our team is already hard at work thinking about designs for our stand. Last year, as well as our floral dress, the Todich Floral Design wedding flowers stand featured a gorgeous, overflowing urn wedding reception arrangement and an autumn-coloured bridal bouquet.

Choosing your wedding flowers can seem like a daunting task, as there’s not just your bridal bouquet to consider, but also bridesmaids bouquets, wedding table arrangements, buttonholes, corsages and sometimes arrangements for other areas too. But you shouldn’t feel overwhelmed as this is exactly what your wedding florist is here to help with.

2014 Bridal Fashion Trends

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013

The wedding dress is such a key element of the bride’s big day and something many women have dreamed about since they were little girls. London florist Todich Floral Design specialises in creating bridal flowers and wedding flowers to complement all types of dress, from full, fairytale Princess styles, to classic gowns or fashionable modern designs. The range of wedding dresses to choose from is huge, and whether your style is traditional, retro or at fashion’s cutting edge, you will always have a ball when it comes to selecting something special for your wedding day.

However, bridal fashion trends, like normal fashion trends, vary from year to year, presenting each year’s new brides with a sometimes bewildering choice, over and on top of the style they may have been dreaming about for years! But it’s always worth checking out what’s in vogue, as designers are experts in incorporating fashion trends in to classic designs so you don’t have to opt for something too far-out. When it comes to wedding flowers for London brides the same applies, and with expert input it’s easy to achieve your desired look and match the style of your bridal flowers to your dress and theme. At Todich Floral Design, we love helping brides create bridal bouquets and bridesmaids’ bouquets that perfectly complement both.

The 2014 bridal fashion trends shown on the catwalks this year illustrate this point well, and show that bringing your ideal dress up to date can be achieved in a few simple ways.

Dominant themes combined slightly more conservatism via higher and covered necklines, lace sleeves and detailed backs, but also a touch more casual too with loose, floaty layers, dainty flowing slips and empire lines. There was a move away from the plainer vintage styles of late with dazzling embellishments and beads and a strong art deco influence, and sexy became more girly with playful, shorter gowns.

Here are some key bridal trends wedding florist Todich Floral Design noted for 2014:

High necklines: these were really popular in 2013 and are set to be even more popular next year. Covering the neck area with sheer fabric or lace, or going for a halterneck style instead of strapless gives a nod to this bridal trend.

Sparkles and embellishments: bridal fashion for 2014 has started to move away from the plain, lace vintage trends of recent years and many collections featured lots of beading, sequins, embroidery and lace, as well as 3D flowers made of organza and silk.

Lace sleeves: blame Kate Middleton if you will, but lace sleeves featured again heavily in 2014 bridal fashion shows so this trend shows no sign of slowing down. From short, sweet caps to elbow length and long, many designers included gowns with sleeves in their collections for next year.

Lots of layers: there was lots of layering on this year’s Spring/Summer runways, which included layers incorporated on the dresses themselves, but also additional layers to the bridal outfit such as tulle wraps and fur capelettes.

Short cut: another huge 2014 bridal fashion trend was rising hemlines on both full and straight skirts, which varied from above the knee, to more conservative on the knee and three quarter length designs.

Casual and cool: moving away from structured, rigid designs, these dresses are easy to wear, light, floaty and cool. Think dainty slips, thin straps and loose, flowing empire-line gowns.

Detailed backs: from open-back keyholes and beading, to contemporary and pleated trains, there was a strong focus on backs for 2014 as an additional way to add some wow factor to your dress.

Art deco: thanks to the Great Gatsby the art deco trend is firmly here, in bridal fashion as well as on the high street and for the home. The 1920s has truly taken over with its decadent detailing and elegant silhouettes.

Attracting with scent and visual beauty, the display will be impressive and notable; the exhibit will contain a number of bridal bouquets in a variety of different styles and colours which will then be scattered all around the stand in an assortment of glass vases.

From traditional classic white, to modern splashes of colour, the bridal bouquets will be a mix of posy and tear-drop shapes and we will present the bouquets in a way that brides can touch, hold and smell the arrangements during the show.

Todich Floral Design in Wateraid’s Sanitation Campaign

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

Many Londoners were caught by surprise when passing by Trafalgar Square yesterday the 8th of September with a  installation raising their awareness for the fact that there is children dying from the lack of sanitation. Campaigners from Wateraid placed 167 spades in the square as a symbol of the number of children dying of diarrhoea every hour. Wateraid’s Head of Campaigns Kate Norgrove explains why they prepared this initiative in the following video:

The subject is not very pleasant and heavy language and phraseology is obviously involved. Words, in the form of floral letters was the contribution from Todich Floral Design to this campaign, the company was asked to prepare the flower letters that composed the phrase “Dig Toilets not Graves” that was used in Trafalgar Square.

To be a part of this and make a contribution you can text “dig” to 88008, call 0800 088 7088 or visit www.digtoilets.org to find out how Wateraid can help.

Injecting Colour into the Modern Wedding!

Monday, July 19th, 2010

injecting-colour

One very exciting part of a wedding for the bride, is the chance to choose and wear a beautiful and extravagant dress, that you will wear only once in your life. As we all know, the traditional and most popular colours for dresses is either white or ivory. However, today a little splash of colour is definitely not out of the question.

Colour has become quite a trend over the past few seasons. Designs and fabrics are straying away from the usual dress. The lengths of dresses are really starting to vary, fabrics are becoming lighter, and adding a bit of colour is almost becoming a must.

Chiffon is one of the most popular fabrics this season. It is really something different in comparison the some of the stiff fabrics that have been used in the past.

Knee-length dresses are becoming a norm, especially since weddings take place in just about any setting these days. Can you imagine wearing a long flowing wedding dress on the beach? A shorter dress definitely allows for more freedom of movement.

If you opt for a shorter and lighter dress, you might have to re-consider the type of bouquet you choose. A large bouquet will really draw attention away from a small flowy, knee-length dress. A simple, small bouquet, will suit this type of dress better. Todich Floral Design can help you pick out exactly the right bridal bouquet. There are many sample bouquets available on the web-site, so you can get some idea of what you would like.

If you decide to stick to tradition in terms of the colour of your dress, colour can still be added in other ways. A brightly coloured pair of shoes, or other small details on the dress. These colours can help inspire the tones of the wedding decorations and the flowers for the bridal bouquet. Accessories can also be colourful – like earrings and bracelets worn by the bride.

Let Todich Floral Design help you inject some colour into your upcoming wedding!

Flowers, Linking People and Places

Monday, July 12th, 2010

people-and-places

In Glasgow, a new type of flower is finally in bloom! But it is not the kind that you will find blooming in your garden and certainly cannot be wrapped up in a bouquet!

An underpass in the Cowcaddens area of Glasgow, really needed a bit of work. This problem was solved with the installation of aluminium flowers. They are anywhere from five to eight meters tall with petals that are about two metres wide. There are about fifty pink, orange and yellow flowers in total to brighten up this, once, rundown area.

These blooms also serve as a link between the city centre and a newly developing area. This project has been a great success, recently winning the Scottish Design Award in the ‘Future Buildings & Spaces’ category.

Flowers , whether made of aluminium or straight from the garden can really serve as a means to bring people and places together.

This is why they can really serve addition to an office space or for any other any other events; blooms can really be a way of drawing the eye and getting people talking.

Todich Floral Design can help you realize any floral decorating ideas you might have for your next event. From consultation (helping you pick out exactly the design, style and flowers you need) to installation (bringing out the best in each floral creation). With our team of experts we will make you next event more memorable with ease!
