In a previous post, I spoke about floral styles. We talked about the 4 different styles that are the prevailing floral styles that you see in the majority of weddings. To reiterate, these are the four styles
structured + architectural + minimalism
lush garden style
relaxed + organic + rustic + natural
We covered Structured + Minimalism in a previous post so I thought I would cover the second Floral style today. What is lush garden style? I would describe garden style as romantic with beautiful lush garden style flowers. Flowers that evoke this style could include the following garden roses, roses, spray roses, dahlias, peonies, poppies, anemones, astilbe, ruffled tulips, sweet peas, lisianthus, hellebores, viburnum, lilac, spirea, hyacinth, scabiosa, stock, larkspur, wax flower, and so many more. Within garden you will find lots of layers, movement, textural elements. There is movement with in and out airiness in the design. Some may be more tailored but the trend is more bountiful and filled with natural elements. You will see elements like garlands incorporated in the design. I wouldn't be surprised if the vessels were ceramic urns or silver compotes. And don't count out the use of wonderful green foliage and even some flower branches.

This is merely one example of garden style. Of course there are many variations. Let's talk a look at garden style expressed in a different way. Shall we?

This wonderful look with pastel hues which was created at the Oh So Inspired retreat at Ramekins is another example of garden style. The image of the wonderful long table with wisteria hanging over is the quintessential definition of garden. Recreating the feel of sitting outside on a veranda sipping lavender lemonade was the inspiration for this design. It's relaxing, soothing, full of what you would imagine what it would be like to have a wedding under a garden of flowers. Am I right?
Not all of us will agree on where a wedding will fall as many have two styles incorporated but I certainly hope these examples help you to determine if this style suits you. After all that's the important thing to answer. Does this style evoke what you are looking for? Look for Part 3 of What's Your Style in the week to come.
