Wedding flower trends are constantly evolving into new and beautiful design ideas. Colors, flower varieties and designs for bouquets, arrangements, centerpieces and wedding decor will vary according to the wedding theme and colors . . . from simple and elegant, to eco-chic, to rustic and glamorous. Going into 2014 we see some similar variety in trends when compared to what we have seen this year. This will include tons of color along with blush, pinks, champagne and whites, accented by stylish touches. All of this will fit a more personalized, unique and one-of-a-kind look to complement each bride.

Here are a few of our favorite bouquets and flowers. You will also be able to see how the colors and themes create new trends which will continue into the new year . . .

Number 1: Romantic Looks and Delicate Colors

If you are looking for a vintage heirloom look with a sweet romantic flair . . . add garden roses, ranunculus and peonies to your wedding flowers. Peonies in blush pinks, white and reds make gorgeous bouquets and add a fabulous addition to your wedding centerpieces. They make a statement by themselves or when grouped with other wedding flowers. To supplement these fabulous blooms, consider adding in lisianthus, stock, scabiosa flowers (available in purple, burgundy, white and pink) and sweet peas. They will create a bouquet that is delicate and delightfully scented. Spray roses are always available and you can get them in a variety of colors throughout the year. They offer a great complement to shabby chic wedding decor.

Number 2: Bold, Beautiful and Modern

Touches of color can be achieved with hints of ranunculus, poppy flowers, dahlias, freesias and anemones.
 • Ranunculus come in a variety of pinks, purples, orange and white.
 • Add anemones to the mix for a bloom that is cheerful and complements a sophisticated design with clean lines and an urban look.
 • Dahlias, perfect for summer and fall weddings, come in delicious pinks, oranges and purples. Burgundy Dahlias are perfect for the fall season, and the much sought-after Cafe au Lait Dahlia is the most perfect and inspiring bloom for a blush bouquet.
 • Freesias were a hit in 2013 and we hope they continue in 2014, as they not only bring a delicate scent as an accent flower, but they also add a splash of color to your wedding day with purple, bright yellow, red, hot pink and white.

Number 3: Eco Chic and Organic Looks

A wonderful variety of plants and flowers can be added to create a wedding bouquet that boasts a fresh look and an eco-friendly design. Include succulents, air plants, proteas, berries, scabiosa pods, clemantis and helleborus for a design that is both exciting and truly unique. In the fall, you can add celosia (cockcomb) in gem colors for additional texture to your bouquets.

Number 4: Exciting new color ideas

The color predictions for 2014 include a variety of blues in all shades. Numerous flowers including delphinium, agapanthus and nigella flowers add fabulous blue accents to wedding flowers. It's a look that fits with a country chic, rustic and vineyard wedding design. Anemones also come in a decadent blue purple which is the perfect complement for a winter wedding or a bohemian chic design.
