Something old, something new—something eye-popping and unexpected. That's what brides look for these days when selecting flowers they'll carry to the altar, according to floral design expert René van Rems. In this month's issue of Bountiful California magazine Rene’ went on to say, "There are just tons of new floral products available. Brides are moving away from traditional designs in wedding flowers and selecting really cool things - line flowers (long-stemmed flowers and foliage) for cascading bouquets that move as a bride walks, hand-tied farm flowers and new hybrids with petals edged in surprising colors.”
Another trend in bridal flowers is the use of protea especially the King Protea. These large exotic flowers have been featured in several Wedding Blogs over the last twelve months and they’ve been in very high demand. Here are a few of my favorite blogs which feature Kings mixed with an array of other gorgeous flowers and foliage:
