“Messy” Bouquets

The organized, round, and neatly-packed bouquets are a thing of the past. The current trend is loose, wide bouquets that have a combination of various flowers and green branches spraying out. The organic design makes it look as if the bride just handpicked this bouquet herself in the garden — in a very chic and beautiful way of course.

Chic Centerpieces

The age of the boho-inspired Mason jar centerpieces is on its way out. Brides are starting to prefer a more sophisticated and minimal vibe for their wedding décor which includes pieces like elevated vases and textured fabrics.
