2014 Wedding Flowers

In a few months, the 2014 wedding season will be in full swing. Now is the time for brides to begin planning the flowers for their big day. Now that we know what colors to expect, it’s time to consider what flowers will look elegant in the colors of the new year. The Knot claims that the best 10 wedding flowers are roses, tulips, calla lilies, lily of the valley, hydrangea, peonies, ranunculus, stephanotis, sweet peas, and gardenias. These are excellent and classic flower choices, but there are so many other options out there that also come in the projected shades of 2014.

Peonies, roses, and hydrangea look lovely in coral. But other flowers such as snap dragons, spider flowers, and dahlias give texture that really make the already bold shade stand out. For more texture, hypericum berries also come in coral.

Another popular color for 2014 is yellow, specifically in happy, sunny shades. The most obvious choices for a bride who wants cheerful yellow flowers are sunflowers and gerbera daisies. But alstromeria, cymbidium orchids, cremon, irises, and dahlias also come in golden shades. And for even more yellow, mimosa and craspedia add lots of fun texture.

Pantone’s color of the year, Radiant Orchid, is a brilliant shade of purple. Hyacinth, irises, dahlias, and crocuses also come in very lovely shades of purple. And of course, orchids are available in shades of purple ranging from warm pinky-fuchsia to cool blue-lavender.

While the selection of bright green flowers is slim, there are options such as cymbidium orchids, hydrangea, and chrysanthemums that will satisfy any bride trying to incorporate non-foliage green into her arrangements. However, there is a plethora of foliage options to lend texture and help create a variety of styles so don’t discount it! Also, if you want to go with a less traditional, bohemian style, limes look great in arrangements or submerged in vases.

For the bride who wants to use the dazzling blue shades of 2014, delphinium, clematis, morning glory, and aster are all great choices especially since these flowers are naturally blue. Many flowers such as blue roses are not found in nature and are therefore produced artificially.

For our brave brides who want to use tangerine as their dominant color choice, proteas, dahlias, orchids, and gerbera daisies all come in the resplendent shade.

Kim Forrest, one of the editors for Wedding Wire, predicts that dahlias will be a very popular flower for 2014. Lucky for us, it is a beautiful and versatile flower with a fun texture that comes in many different shades.

No matter your style or color scheme, we can find a way to incorporate the color and flower trends of 2014 into your wedding flower assemblage!
