Wedding flowers trends of 2018

Wedding season is upon us! You have probably done a million arrangements for weddings already and you know what the favourites are with the brides and grooms. But do you know the trends for this wedding season? Will you be able to give fashion-forward advice?

Bye bye crown!

The flower crown is still a favourite among a lot of brides, but little do they know that de flower tiara is actually a lot handier and hipper. Or flower jewellery in general. Flower crowns have been around for the last few years now, and people are looking for the next best thing. So, invest in making flower cuffs, flower chokers and flower necklaces. Create your statement jewellery and your bride will be ready for 2018!

Bolder colours

Bolder colours are the way to go in 2018. Trends go in waves, and this one is making a comeback, as last year was all about pastels. Goodbye blush, hello moody blues and sunshine yellows!

Bye bye centrepiece

Brides are opting more and more to ditch the flower centrepieces for one big arrangement in the room of the reception and ceremony. This will also work as a fabulous photo backdrop.

Dahlias

No longer old-fashioned, these beautiful flowers will have their moment in 2018. They come in many shapes and colours, so they are just perfect as either an accent in the bouquet or as a statement. Or just create one amazing bouquet full of dahlia’s in one colour. Which brings us to the next trend: Monochrome

Monochrome bouquets

Or just go for a bouquet in one clashing colour to oppose the rest of the wedding palette. The bride is sure to make an entrance people will remember!

Bloemcorso in The Netherlands

Another famous Dutch flower festival, next to the Keukenhof, is the Bloemencorso, or Dutch Flower Parade. This event, which takes place on the 20th and the 21st of April is something you must see! The beauty, the colours and the amazing work put in the floats is something you cannot miss. It is sure to give you a lot of inspiration.

Theme of 2018

This year’s theme is Culture, and all the floats in the parade are designed around this theme. Different organisations of the region take part in this yearly event. The planning and designing is something that starts straight after the parade of last year. A lot of hard work and dedication goes in to this event. And the results are truly breath-taking, something you have never seen before in your entire life!

Friday afternoon and evening

On Friday afternoon and in the evening, you can have a look at the flowerparade in the city centre of Noordwijkerhout. In the evening, the lights are turned on, and the parade will ride through the city centre putting on an amazing display! The contrast between dark and light and colour is really nice!

Saturday: the official day of the parade

Saturday is the official day of the parade. The floats take a route that takes them through the scenic ‘Bollenstreek’ where thousands of people come to admire the colourful beauty of the flowers. The route starts at 9.30 in Noordwijk, and ends at 21.30 in Haarlem, where the lights are turned on again, and the spectacle of colours gets another dimension.

Sunday

On Sunday, you can have a look when the floats are parked in Haarlem and Noordwijk. This gives you an opportunity to look at all the details of these splendid floats up close.

We hope to see you at this amazing spectacle in The Netherlands! Maybe we can introduce something similar in Finland?
