We have seen so many different trends over the last 30 years, but of course, my favourite is the change of trends in wedding flowers. We are seeing so many of the trends from the 80’s come full circle.

Let’s take a walk down memory lane!

Everything about this iconic wedding was over the top, from the veil to the dress to the flowers. Diana’s bouquet complimented her dress perfectly. If she had a very streamlined dress, this bouquet would have looked over the top, but this bouquet worked perfectly with those layers of frills. A gorgeous bouquet filled with roses, gardenia, stephanotis and ivy.

The early ’90s carried through some of the same trends as the late ’80s. Very over top and everything was big from the hair to the dresses. This bouquet matched Mariah’s personality and wedding style perfectly. Again if she had a slender dress, we would not have been able to see the bride behind this massive bouquet. Imagine the weight of this bouquet filled with ivy, white roses, and stephanotis.

The late ’90s brought wedding trends with a simpler style. The dresses went strapless, less poof and ruffles and the flowers needed to match. We saw the introduction of clean lines and simpler flowers. Bouquet styles changed from the cascade filled with lots of greenery and different size flowers to a more delicate hand tied style with less greenery. Reese Witherspoon’s bouquet of David Austin roses matched perfectly with her blush wedding gown.

2007: The wedding of Eva Longoria to Tony Parker was filled with so many beautiful white blooms. The famous floral designer Jeff Letham worked magic for this ceremony. From vases spilling full of white phalenopsis and hydrangeas to white denrdrobium orchids to garden roses. And Eva’s bouquet compliments her tiny frame and delicate dress with a natural cascade of white phalenopsis orchids spilling out of a tiny bouquet of crystal blush calla lilies.

2014: Say what you want about Kim & Kanye, they introduced the world to the flower wall. From an over-the-top backdrop that every bride in the world wanted to mimic, Kim brought our wedding dreams to life in a wall of roses, hydrangeas, peonies, and lilacs.
