6 Creative Floral Trends to Make Your Wedding Stand Out

Whether the flowers you use are real or fake, florals are a perfect way to create the aesthetic for your dream wedding. Bouquets and boutonnieres have long been the go-to way to incorporate florals, but there are many more creative ways to add greenery to your wedding. 

Here are some of my personal favorite wedding floral trends:

1. Succulent Bowties

If you consider yourself a plant person like myself, floral accessories are a creative way to add EVEN MORE green to your wedding! This succulent bow tie is my new personal favorite.

2. Floral Draped Wheelchairs

Photographer Ella Sophie and Florist Ask and Oak styled this shoot for Catalyst's "Out of the Box" Challenge and made Gigi's wheelchair the focal point of the entire shoot. Absolutely beautiful. 

3. Hoop Bouquets

This is a creative way to spice up a bouquet. This bride used a ring and attached flowers instead of the traditional bouquet bundle. The deep blue and reds of the roses add a pop of color to the white dress!

4. Crepe Paper Flowers

This same shoot also utilized crepe paper flowers for a traditional bouquet and a flower crown. Paper flowers are an increasing trend, as they can be preserved much more easily than real flowers and are often much more affordable. These paper flower made by 622 Flowers are stunning!

5. Skip the Bouquet and Choose a Floral Print Outfit

Another way to incorporate florals in your wedding is by the print on your attire. This bride strayed away from the traditional white wedding dress and spiced it up with a gorgeous floral print!

6. Floral Cakes
