1. Woodland/forest bouquet & flower crown

There is a growing trend for couples to include green foliage as the main theme or style for their wedding. Consider incorporating leaves into your bridal and bridesmaid bouquets, centerpieces and other decorations.
Perfect for that rustic barn-wedding theme, forest bouquets and flower crowns will bring a natural forest fairytale mood to your ceremony and reception.
One of our favourites, Lyn from The Flower Snob adds wheat grass to the bloom, which we think looks beautiful, and would match splendidly with boho-style bridal gown from someone talented such as Leah S Design.  Perfect for that 2018 rustic boho wedding!

Flowers add that magic touch of beauty to the day. But, what if you’re looking for a different take on the traditional floral decorations? Well, look no further. Floralgami offers flower walls made out of paper, giving a stunning backdrop for guests to take photos!

“A special moment of any bride’s wedding day is the “I DO” moment. Where the groom is excitedly waiting to see his bride in her gown for the first time and where the bride fixates her attention on her dashing husband-to-be, that moment can be captured with the perfect paper flower arch or backdrop”
