The Vintage Fashion in Flowers

Vintage Handtie
It was only a few years back that the ‘something old’ in the familiar wedding day adage might have meant, at most, a family necklace glimmering above the neckline, or an old piece old fashioned,  attire only worn to not cause dismay to certain family members,  but in the last year a sea of change has taken place, with more and more brides choosing to reject the new and instead rediscover the charms of pre-loved pieces.it seems the pre-owned fashion Items with a history has definitely made its mark to stay.

Vintage has sky rocketed in popularity, the recent royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton unsurprisingly showed the princess wearing a traditional 1950’s style lace dress and holding a simple white bouquet of Lily-of-the-valley, Sweet William, Hyacinth, Ivy and myrtle.

 

The classic craze has certainly flourished within the flower industry.  Vintage has definitely set its mark among the brides to be.  Todich Floral Design kept with the trend and exhibited at The Wedding Show 2011 in Earls Court with an exquisite display of vintage style pieces, including the infamous Amnesia Roses, Vanda orchids and Scabiosa pods. All of which caught the eyes of the happy couples.

The Amnesia Rose in-particular have become very popular over the last few years, due to its reliability with flower heads that are always fully open and all year round, it is no wonder that these extraordinary roses are a firm favourite when creating Vintage style wedding flowers. Its unique beige, lavender and green colours tone magnificently with many other flowers, we also find that mixing the roses with soft pinks and whites also create a dramatic effect. Quite often because of their mystifying beauty, Amnesia Roses are used in simple clusters with just foliage to accompany them.

By choosing a mixed bouquet of seasonal English flowers with a small amount of foliage running throughout the bouquet you would be able to create a vintage look’. Many brides are dressing the venues with simple designs to create a natural garden appearance.

The designers at Todich Floral Design say ‘It is the attention to minor details that is important in creating a classical period look. Accessories can also be incorporated into your flower designs such as using diamantes, pearls, brooches and velvet ribbon, we would be happy to quote you on any unique or intricate ideas you may have to make your special day, a day to remember.

So don’t forget, being original is the key, mixing of old and new, and by adding seasonal pastel flowers will create the antique classical look which you are looking for.
