Just as wedding dress styles come and go, fashions for flowers follow. We asked our clever Florists to share the top wedding floral trends for this season to inspire fashion-forward brides.

1. Trend: Add interest and intrigue

This year we're seeing blooms go way beyond their traditional use in bouquets and as centrepiece decorations with brides - and their florists - becoming increasingly quirky and creative with their use of pretty posies and artistic arrangements.

Why not hang a tightly wound ball of blooms around the back of chairs in lieu of conventional bows, use pretty strings of ribbon or beads to tie small posies to dangle from the trees for a garden wedding, use petal confetti to create giant initials on the ground at the end of the aisle, ask a clever florist to create floral parasols for your flower girls or hang garlands from giant wreaths to add drama above the dance floor, at the entrance to your reception or above the tables instead of centrepieces - check out pinterest for inspiration galore!

2. Trend: Classic white

Always on-trend and unlikely to ever fall out of favour, the all-white bouquet - often with coordinating centrepieces - is elegant, timeless and particularly popular for formal weddings.

White blooms look fresh and fabulous with dark greenery - such as camellia leaves or ivy - and whether you opt for a single flower such as all roses, gardenias or lilies, or a mix (you can still be creative combining flowers with intriguing textures and shapes such as pairing peonies, lisianthus and tuberose or baby's breath with daisies) you know you'll always be in style.

3. Trend : Native

I love a sunburnt country, a land of sweeping plains...Australian native flowers were surely created with brides in mind and this stoic native flower has never been more popular for weddings.  For a natural look we love a wild mix of different species. These flowers will stand the test of time and outlast even you on your wedding day. 

4. Trend: Blooms in bulk

One look that doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon is using one flower many ways - and plenty of it. Whether it's roses, hydrangeas, peonies, ranunculus, orchids, lilies or anything else, for a coordinated look, having the bride, bridal party and décor all make use of the same bloom ties everything together.

Either stick with one colour everywhere - such as white or pale pink - or mix up pastel shades of the same flower. Going from white to deep purple or pale to dark pink offers a very now ombre effect.

4. Trend: Sweet Succulents

Whether to complement a rustic or rural setting, an eco-friendly affair or just because they're unique and divine, we're seeing more and more brides add succulents to their wedding flower wishlist. Go green with a bouquet entirely made up of succulents or mix them up with pastels, poppies or a mix of blooms and berries for a looks that's tropical and a touch exotic.

5. Trend: Vintage vibe

Flowers provide an easy avenue to pulling off a vintage vibe, whether by the blooms chosen (snapdragons, sweet peas, freesias), the way they're put together or how you use them in your décor.

Colour also plays a part with white, pretty pale pinks and lovely lilacs all ideal options for recreating rustic romance. Try ranunculus with roses, anemones with sweet peas and lavender with plenty of loosely arranged greens to get the look. Display fresh flowers in antique silver vases or crystal vessels as centrepieces to add an authentic ambience.
