Thursday, November 20th, 2014

At Todich Floral Design, through wedding flowers and flower designs for all occasions, we consistently aim to demonstrate true elegance. We do this through natural grace, a blend of styles, and, above all, harmony between the different elements of our arrangements. Of course, it also comes down to using the freshest flowers—with colours, varied blossoms, fragrance, and style of wrapping and table placement. You may even discover that your flowers do more to transform your special, momentous day than the venue itself!

Now we’re going to delve into how to make sense of some the trickier, more nuanced details and underlying meanings of wedding flowers arrangements, especially for the upcoming 2015 season. So get ready to see what’s trending! This way you’ll be able to avoid any flower faux pas, and make sure you pull off your absolute dream wedding into a cohesive, well designed finish. The first stop on our list is that of vintage wedding flowers

Vintage Wedding Flowers

This type of classically styled, elegant wedding décor is still very popular. When you think of weddings with a vintage theme there is going to be lots of thin lace, pearls, feathers, brooches and ivied columns. Lavender and white table clothes are wonderful choices. Heritage rose are second to none when it comes to selecting vintage wedding flowers—popular colours and variants on shades are dusky pinks and sweet corals, eye-catching thulian, antique peach, and lavish almond. Green foliage, white (to complement the lace), and yellow are excellent ways to balance pink hues. Other types of blossoms apart from roses—but equally refined—are gerberas, carnations and peonies. Sweet Williams are also delightful!

Rustic Wedding Flowers

A rustic wedding flowers the- me will be somewhat remini- scent of the vintage style. But the key difference is in that, while it remains somewhat nostalgic and unpolished, it’s very much bucolic. This emphasis on nature remains the biggest factor in rustic wedding flowers and similarly styled weddings, regardless of whether or not the ceremony is held in- or outdoors. The types of décor are often full of whimsy, delight and airiness. Think tulips and hyacinths, cascades and arrays of green ivy, spots of bright daises. Giant sunflowers are also a great way to mix up the dainty and more childish aspect of smaller and more delicate flowers, while losing none of the colour power, brightness or beauty. Tables spotted with French lavender or using succulents for any man’s boutonniere will make for a nice country chic look. For the ladies aiming for the rustic style, they can’t go wrong with flower headdresses or long stemmed flowers in bridal bouquets. Still need some rustic accents? Try a little burlap, twine or the muted flair of an aged ribbon.

Flamboyant Wedding Flowers

Flamboyance is all about making a scene. It’s grandiose, opulent, lavish in all aspects of wedding décor. In other words, it’s as far as you can get from the toned down luxury of the rustic and vintage styled weddings. Instead, this livened up wedding is likely to employ lots of contemporary centrepieces, slim glass vases, busy and exotic flower arrangements, and candles of varying height. True extravagance! Flower arrangements often use calla lilies, lush velvet roses, sensuous flowers such as anthuriums and flowers of paradise, orchids and blue roses. Flowers used around the base of these arrangements are better as ivory or white, to balance the colour array above. A few more affluent additions: any gold or brass ornaments, as well as rhinestones and crystals scattered across tables or draped over candelabra.

No matter what type of wedding and theme you prefer, remember that above all it’s harmony that matters. Colour, arrangement styles, personal tastes must blend together for a truly wonderful wedding. More than simple coordination, which only makes sure that nothing clashes, achieving true harmony amplifies the entire effect of your wedding décor. Just like the happy couple, it should be clear that every element is meant to be.

Tuesday, February 18th, 2014

At Todich Floral Design we love keeping up to date with what’s popular in the wedding industry and with new wedding flowers trends. Of course there will always be some themes, such as all white and feminine, pastel hues that are timeless and that we’ll continue to see year after year. But the great thing about weddings is that each bride can create her own unique twist and make it her own.

As a London wedding florist, Todich Floral Design gets to meet lots of unique people from different backgrounds, so no two weddings are ever them same, which makes what we do really exciting. We are always coming up with new ideas, but equally we often get ideas from our brides too, so here we would like to share with you some fresh and fabulous wedding flowers ideas.

‘Pure & Simple’
If you are a fan of clean, straight lines as well as the colour white with just a pop of colour, then ‘pure and simple’ is most likely a theme you will love. Envision wedding reception flowers featuring luscious white cymbidium orchids overflowing from a decadent silver vase with a touch of yellow ranunculus and craspedia for the pop of colour, along with some pussy willow sticking up a bit taller at the top. This creates a crisp and utterly stunning design.

‘Modern Vintage’
Vintage wedding flowers are enduringly popular, but modern takes on this should be more about pretty details and less chintz. Designs and colours are romantic, feminine and delicate. Imagine the colours to be ivory, pale pinks and light green. A vintage bridal bouquet would be filled with immaculate ivory and pink garden roses with a touch of Queen Anne’s lace and ivory and light green lisianthus draping from it along with dusty miller. If old school elegance and feminity is what you are after, then this is just the theme for you.

‘Garden Chic’
This is a really fun bridal flowers idea, because it incorporates lots of colours which can be based on the bride’s personal style and taste. Imagine walking through a garden and picking wildflowers; this is the exact feeling you want to create with garden chic themed bridal flowers. The garden chic wedding is fun, with bright with pinks, yellows, purples, and greens. Visualise mason jars filled with sunflowers, daisies, sweet peas, corn flowers, anemones, irises with alchemilla mollis everywhere. It is a whimsical mix of flowers that will bring a lovely fairytale feeling to your day.

Picture a full, round bridal bouquet and bridesmaids bouquets with heaps of luscious pastel pink peonies and snowberries, plus subtle pops of darker pink roses, astilbe or waxflower to add some extra texture, drama and shape. Add fairylights, crystals and candles in to the wedding reception décor, and this pink paradise really comes to life.

‘Spring Green’
This wedding flowers theme is for all the nature lovers out there, with succulents, yellow tulips and green hydrangea it’s the perfect style for spring.
