I don't think we talk about wedding flowers enough here in the Val Vista Lakes blog. I realized this today as I was walking through the wedding venue, appreciating the amazing color and dreamy scents we have here...cascading waterfalls immersed in a sea of floral color and wonder. It's really quite amazing...but, I might be biased.

So, today, we're talking all about wedding flowers!

Wedding Flowers

Luxury – Be prepared to spend a little bit more on wedding flowers in 2017, as the luxury trend hits Gilbert weddings. No more greenery, stems and fillers, in 2017 the bouquet will be full of flowers at full bloom. Hydrangea, hyacinths and orchids, of course as well as roses, in full bloom will be incredibly popular. Consider setting aside another budget simply for the flowers!

Wild and Free – If you’re looking for something a bit more down to earth in your 2017 Gilbert wedding, consider the just picked from the side of the road look. Wildflowers will be a big wedding trend in 2017; going to the great outdoors in all aspects of your wedding theme. Choose a mix of flowers that look as if you’ve just picked them from a luscious meadow up north.

Crowns of Flower – I personally think this wedding flower trend is adorable, and yet classy and sophisticated if executed just right. More and more Gilbert brides are embracing the flower crown, paying a bit of homage to the 70’s wedding style. Talk to your Gilbert wedding florist to determine if the flower crown will fit your wedding theme and dress style.

Classic – If the wild and free look is not for you, or the luxury or flower crown, consider something a bit more classical and clean. White and ivory blooms such as roses and calla lilies will continue to be popular, as they always have, for Gilbert weddings. This timeless, clean and conventional flower theme will smoothly sail into the 2017 wedding season.

Winter – Yes, here in Arizona we do actually get a winter, though our winter is considered summer to many snowbirds. Wool is going to make an appearance in 2017, straight on the boat over from Europe as a popular wedding item. In the winter, you might notice a few brides wrapping their bouquets in wool. Nope, it’s not to keep the bouquet warm and fuzzy. It’s a wedding trend that is extremely widespread in Europe.

Home Grown - Home grown Arizona flowers such as Bluets, Blanketflower, California Poppy, Evening Primrose, Flax, or Waterlilies can make a great addition to your local wedding.

Whatever the theme of your Arizona wedding, if you're looking for a natural setting that incorporates not only a beach and sand, but a waterfall, outdoor gazebo and the beauty of colorful flowers, give us a call today.
