GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - June is a big month to tie the knot. On average, couples spend about 25-thousand dollars on their wedding. And a big part of that expense is the flowers.
Today, Bachman's Sarah Pitt's showed current floral trends and how to make your dollars go further.
1. Vintage (utilizing heirlooms from mothers and grandmothers, soft & subtle antiqued colors like blushes and ivories, lace, old buttons, 1930s - 1950s is the era that is popular.
2. Luxury-With the economic recovery, couples are returning to hosting large, over the top affairs. Large venues require bright colors, crystals, high quality flowers, large displays of flowers to make an impact. One of the best ways to make a statement at the ceremony and especially the reception is with flowers (people will remember the flowers versus not really remember the chair covers).
3. Personal Themes-Something that is particularly meaningful to the couple sets the theme for the entire wedding affair. Could be an overall interest like books, music, etc or a particular movie or song. These meaningful elements take over for tradition - like what song they walk down the aisle to and how they decorate the affair. The wedding is completely personalized.
4. Rustic Chic -This has been a trend for a while but it still really big. Very natural/ organic look. Like someone went out to a garden and picked wildflowers themselves. Trend toward in season and healthy living. Greens like succulents can be incorporated plus burlap and birch.
