Blossoming Love: 2024 Wedding Flower Trends

Yo yo, fellow Byron Bay wedding enthusiasts! As your go-to wedding celebrant, I've been on a floral adventure to uncover the freshest and most fabulous wedding floristry trends for 2024.

To kick off I recently popped over to Byron Florist – Poppy & Fern at The Farm Byron Bay, where I had a chat with Jess, the flower whisperer herself. She's the owner of Poppy and Fern, and she gave me the inside scoop on what's blossoming in the world of wedding flowers. Want to see what we chatted about? Check out the interview on my YouTube channel below:

Now, let's dive into the petal-packed trends for 2024:

Bold Hues: Drama Queens Unite!

Forget about playing it safe with pastels; 2024 is all about going bold or going home. We're talking deep burgundies, emerald greens, and royal blues that'll add a splash of drama to your big day. These rich colours are perfect for standing out against the lush landscapes of the Northern Rivers.

Sustainable Floristry: Green Thumbs Up!

Eco-conscious weddings are all the rage, and couples are opting for locally sourced, sustainably grown flowers. Jess from Poppy and Fern is all about those eco-friendly vibes, growing many of their blooms right at The Farm. Choosing native wildflowers and seasonal blooms not only looks gorgeous but also gives Mother Nature a high five.

Dried Florals: Keepin' It Boho

Dried flowers are still having their moment in the sun, especially for those boho-chic weddings. They add a touch of nostalgia and texture, and the best part? You get to keep a piece of your wedding day forever. Talk about a win-win!

Statement Installation Pieces: Go Big or Go Home

2024 is the year of grand floral installations. Think suspended floral chandeliers, cascading walls of blooms, and intricate ceiling installations that'll turn your wedding venue into a floral wonderland. Your guests won't know what hit 'em!

Minimalism: Less Is More, Darling

For the couples who believe that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication, minimalist blooms are making a comeback. Small bridal bouquets with a carefully curated selection of blooms are all the rage, proving that sometimes, less truly is more.

Native Wildflowers: Aussie Pride

Embracing native wildflowers is a trend that's as beautiful as it is sustainable. Incorporating local blooms like cornflowers, oxeye daisies, and harebells adds a rustic and whimsical touch, while also supporting the conservation of our local flora.

Dahlias: The Belle of the Ball

The traditional English dahlia is stealing the spotlight in 2024. With their diverse shapes and vibrant colors, dahlias are becoming a go-to flower for couples looking to make a statement. Jess at Poppy and Fern is particularly fond of the larger dinner-plate varieties that pack a real punch in centerpieces.

Edible Centerpieces: A Tasty Twist

Fruits are making their way into wedding floral displays, adding a burst of freshness and playfulness to your decor. From berries and cherries to apples and pears, the seasonal flexibility of fruits ensures your wedding florals are always in tune with the time of year. Plus, who doesn't love a snackable centerpiece?

Vintage-Inspired Florals: Old-School Cool

There's a nostalgic revival of vintage-inspired garden florals, evoking the timeless charm of English country gardens. Cascading arrangements and romantic touches create an atmosphere that transports you and your guests to a bygone era of elegance.

As we step into 2024, it's clear that the world of wedding floristry is blooming with bold choices, sustainable practices, and a deep appreciation for nature's beauty. Whether you're planning a wedding in Byron Bay or anywhere else in the Northern Rivers area, these trends offer a fresh and exciting way to incorporate florals into your special day. So, let's get those bouquets tossing and make 2024 a year to remember!
