2020 International Wedding Trend Report

February 5, 2020

We couldn’t be more thrilled to announce that we’ve been featured in this year’s International Wedding Trend Report! Each year, The Wedding Academy compiles a beautifully designed report of global trends from industry experts all around the world. Flourishing Art has been named as a contributor in the floral category, and we wanted to share some of our included picks below.

Go Bold or Go Home

Couples are returning to the ‘wow’ factor this year by including a wealth of vibrant shades into their wedding blooms. We’re seeing a lot of bright green, oranges, bold reds, rich blues and purples.

As of late, we’ve been working with a lot of wine and burgundy hues, but we’re excited to see classic red making a comeback. The combination of these colors together makes for a marbled, exquisite pairing that piles on the drama.

Elegant Textures

Following the dramatic route, we’ll expect to see more utilization of modern metals in couples’ floral designs, whether they be glittering accents or muted matte elements. The bigger, the better here – there’s no longer too much texture to be had! Dried and preserved florals incorporated with fresh blossoms is also the new trending juxtaposition that’s all the rage for 2020.

Cascading Bouquets

Long, daring bridal bouquets are here! Cascades and cressets are emerging, although the free-form style has been in for quite a few years. With this, we’ll see more draping greenery and accent flowers that will elevate what will be showcased during the ceremony. 

 


Flourishing Art in the News: November Press Roundup!

November 19, 2019

We can’t think of many things that we love more than sharing our recent designs, expert wedding tips, and real wedding inspiration with you! Today, we’re launching our monthly press roundup blog to highlight Flourishing Art in the news. And, we promise that you’re going to love everything in this article! Thank you to our friends at Rustic Bride, Martha Stewart Weddings, YourTango, and WeddingWire for the features! 

Rustic Bride

Having dated since college, we knew we wanted to make Tawni and Jake’s wedding day as special as their love story. Our team had the pleasure of designing many aspects of the decor, curating all the floral arrangements, and planning each detail without a hitch! We loved the whimsical, ombre floral designs that featured different blooms in shades varying from lavender to eggplant. View their beautiful day by visiting Rustic Bride’s website here

Martha Stewart Weddings

When it comes to deciding the flowers for your bouquets in high-traffic areas, choosing less delicate blooms is the best way to help them stand up to a lot of handling. But how do you know which flowers to avoid? 

We are thrilled to share that Oleta has recently been featured as one of the guest experts on Martha Stewart Weddings, sharing which flowers are best for bouquets. To view which flowers Oleta recommends, access the full article here.

A wedding reception has so many aspects, but have no fear, as Oleta shared her insight on the timing of your dinner service.

Flourishing Art in the News: November Podcast Roundup!

November 5, 2019

Fun fact: we love being a guest on wedding podcasts! And, we’re covering all the bases this month by highlighting two very different podcasts. 

On Planner in Training, we’re speaking on how wedding planners can best communicate with other vendors during high-stress situations on the wedding day. 

Then, we’re having a bit of fun on Bridechilla by helping couples bring their wedding vision board to life – even with countless platforms of inspiration online. Thank you to Planner in Training and Bridechilla for allowing us to be a part of your podcasts! 

Planner in Training

As wedding and event professionals, one of the most important things we do is communicate! But, what happens when things don’t go as planned and that communication has to be with other vendors during stressful circumstances?

Oleta is sharing her personal experience that she and our team have encountered, and how we persevered to make this best of each situation. Access Oleta’s insight on the Planner in Training podcast by browsing here

Bridechilla

With engagement season making its annual debut, we know how overwhelming it can be with today’s treasure trove of wedding inspiration. Thankfully, Oleta has partnered with Bridechilla in a wedding planning Q & A podcast to help you create the wedding mood board of your dreams!

From deciding what you like to budgeting and finding the right people to help you, we know newly engaged couples will find a lot of great takeaways from this podcast. Take a listen on Bridechilla’s website here


Rustic Countryside Destination Wedding: Lucy & Ben

July 16, 2019

As a couple that is by far one of the sweetest couples we have had the pleasure of working with, we are thrilled to share Lucy and Ben’s destination wedding in the UK at Clock Barn with you on the blog!

Located in the heart of the countryside, the seclusion of Clock Barn grants couples a venue unlike many things offered in the region.  The beautiful exposed beams give an air of vintage OLD WORLD – fit for the couple craving a rustic wedding. For Lucy and Ben, they admired the endless options offered by the Clock Barn, and we took full advantage of its natural beauty when it came to the overall design. From the paper flags and table numbers to all of the day’s floral arrangements, we incorporate shades of white, champagne, and citron in countless of the details.

Many thanks to Hana Laurie Photography for allowing us to share these special moments, and congratulations to Lucy and Ben!
