    Before the romantic getaway, Charleston couples need to prepare and venue and exchange vows. When you are planning your wedding, choosing your flowers and how they will be displayed will be one of the biggest things you do. You will want flowers for your bouquet, for your bridesmaids, to decorate the setting of the ceremony and to decorate the place where you will have the reception. You have a lot of options and many wedding flower trends are fresh, fun and romantic.

    Estate Garden Flowers

    This is a floral decorating option that you have if you want a romantic, opulent setting. It brings that fresh-picked and vintage feel to your wedding. You can really use any flowers that you like, but if you really want to run with this theme, there are certain flowers that are common in this type of garden. Lavender is bright and can be found in varying shades of purple. It is also fragrant and can provide a serene backdrop. Yarrow is a taller plant and the flowers can be white, yellow or light pink. Dusty millers are yellow and small and have a silver foliage. English daisies are dainty and can be found in white as well as various shades of red and pink. You can also incorporate garden roses, hydrangea and ranunculus into your displays.

    Cascades and Garlands

    Flowers that are hanging are really trending. You will find flowers draping the chandeliers or you will see complete pieces of art that are composed of mostly flowers. Many brides are also choosing to use a cascade in place of a traditional bouquet. If you use a cascade this way, you can allow it to hang from one of your wrists. Any flower can be used in this manner, so the options are endless. You can also add other elements to your garlands and cascades, such as feathers, ribbons, gems and jewels and lace.

    Flowers and Fruit

    One big trend right now is combining fruit and flowers. For example, if your wedding is using citrus colors, you can add citrus fruits to clear vases and then place the flowers in this. You can also use whole fruits with flowers in your centerpieces or even your bouquet. The colors complement each other well and the addition of fruits will add a little more scent to your reception hall or the place of your ceremony.

    Jewel Tones

    If you want a vibrant wedding, you are in luck. Flowers in jewel tones are very hot right now. These can be combined with clear glass vases, jewels and gems, and water features. For example, many weddings are placing waterfalls as the focal point of the reception hall. This is adorned with jewel-toned flowers, sparkling gems and lighting that bring everything to life.

    With these ideas, it might be easier to narrow down what you want at your wedding. This ensures a beautiful space to celebrate before heading off on your honeymoon or other romantic getaway in Charleston.
