As wedding and event florists, we often get asked to weigh in on the hot 2023 wedding floral trends we see our clients asking for in the coming season. And, since our average wedding client books our services between 6 and 18 months before their wedding date, we are in an excellent position to give you an idea.
So, here it is, our predictions for the popular 2023 Wedding Floral Trends:
- Ceiling and Wall Installations
- Ceremony Floral Backdrops
- Head Tables
- Color of the Year 2023: Viva Magenta
Ceiling and Wall Installations are a Big 2023 Wedding Floral Trend
First up: Ceiling Installations, Ceiling Chandeliers, and Wall Installations. Oh my goodness, who doesn’t love entering a room and being showered in roses or lush hanging greenery? 2023 brides love utilizing every inch of their ceremony and reception venues – from the floor all the way up to the ceiling. These hanging installations can incorporate greenery vines, greenery garlands, silk or fresh flower chandeliers, floral mixed with crystal strands or antique chandeliers. And there are no limits for the 2023 bride.
Below are some more installation projects we created for very recent weddings and events – and in 2023 we will definitely see more of this trend.
Ceremony Floral Backdrops
Floral arches are an old wedding standby, as traditional and trusty as it gets. And while round or rectangular floral arches certainly aren’t going anywhere, 2023 brides are looking to put a new, fresh spin on this old standard. The non-traditional floral backdrop continues to be a 2023 wedding floral trend. The 2023 couple is looking for deconstructed floral arches, where different parts of the floral arch are missing entirely, creating the illusion that the flowers are floating in space. Going strong is also the arch that simply consist of 2 tall pillars, adorned with floral in an a-symmetric fashion. Furthermore, couples are opting for the grounded arch, where floral is positioned on the ground in a half-circle. A fabulous option if the background offers a stunning view which should not be obstructed. And of course the circle arch or moon arch will stay around for the coming season.
Will you opt for one of these more unusual backdrops for your ceremony?
Grand Head Tables
We see the continuing trend to create a beautiful focal point for the reception, and 2023 couples tend to go all out when it comes to their head table or sweetheart table. Whether it’s a large floral chandelier running the full length of the head table, or adding floral on top of the table or behind the table. Giving your head table or sweetheart table more attention will go a far way. And you will surely deliver a WOW factor for your guests.
Color of the Year 2023: Viva Magenta
