Here is my chance to report on the colors of weddings from the street.  What makes me the expert?  I find out what hundreds of brides are ordering in terms of ribbons and favors.  I also have reports from what brides are ordering for bm dress colors this year.  Here is the color report:

Purples : aubergine, wisteria, smoky purple

Blues:  deep teal, bright azure and bold cobalt

Yellow:  bright canary, autumn gold

Greens:  clover and bright melon green

Browns:  beigey creams, latte brown

Neutrals:  smokey grey

Pinks:  hot watermelon, fuchsia

  1. Hello! And thank you for sharing your wonderful works of art! I am an aspiring wedding floral designer in Atlanta, Georgia and I was wondering if you have any tips or suggestions on where to begin? Do you do workshops? Your visions are remarkable! I look forward to hearing from you!

    • Hi Veronica.

      Thanks for your comments. I have not been doing any workshops, but if you have a big group that wants one, than let me know! If you are just starting out I think it is best to learn from the best. Read books on floral arranging and then start putting together a portfolio. Find any wedding that you can do at first and put 200% of your effort into your first weddings so that you can have a portfolio to build business on. Network with wedding coordinators and others in the industry. Good luck!!


    • Great. Better to break the rules than follow them. Just because I report the trends does not mean sameness is good. It’s always best to go with your favorites and keep all the other factors in mind -location, time of day etc. !
