Meet top bridal florist Todich Floral Design at the National Wedding Show

On 21 to 23 February, London wedding florist Todich Floral Design is excited to be attending the National Wedding Show in London Olympia following an extremely successful presence at the September 2013 show.

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. At the September show we spoke with literally hundreds of London brides who flocked to the stand to see our fabulous floral dress display, and we’re equally excited about this year’s stand.

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.

Many brides feel under pressure to come armed with ideas, but this isn’t the case. If you’re feeling slightly daunted at the prospect of planning your wedding flowers, London bridal florist Todich Floral Design provides our top 5 tips for wedding flowers in 2014 in the Experts section of the National Wedding Show website, so be sure to take a look at these before you start planning and gathering ideas.

Whether you have a clear idea of what you want or need some help coming up with ideas, Todich Floral Design wedding florists in London can help deliver your vision of your dream wedding day. From chic, contemporary flowers to traditional church pew ends, candleabras and table centrepieces, the company has gained a reputation for providing stunning floral decorations and an excellent service, and has a huge variety of props, containers and vases to choose from. We’ve worked in some of the top wedding venues in London including Café Royal, Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Dorchester Hotel, The National Portrait Gallery and many more, so come and see us from 21-23 Feb at Olympia or contact us to discuss your requirements today.

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.
