From Rings To Flowers, Colour Schemes And New Rules

“Gypsophila is proving particularly popular, for definite. Large scale, voluminous, fluffy clouds of gyp. . . everywhere! ” Are people going big again post-Covid when it comes to their wedding florals, or is minimalism/simple elegance taking over?

“Post-pandemic I think people fall into two camps,” Melissa revealed, “they have either reassessed through Covid and want a smaller more authentic celebration, or they go completely the other way and are totally over-excited at the thought of actually being able to properly celebrate together again and want to fully go to town. ”

And if you’re working to a tight budget? Because, let’s face it, who isn’t right now…

“Don’t try to decorate everywhere and spread it all too thin,” would be Melissa’s top tip. “Choose key areas you want to style and think about which photos will be important to you and make sure you fill those with florals. ”

“For example, where you say your vows will be a picture you definitely want to have on the mantlepiece, so style that area with florals abundantly so it frames you beautifully. ”
