For example, this year, anything vintage, shabby chic, sophisticated rustic and southern style country have been very much in style. The flip side of that trend seems to be elegant and classic. Take these centerpieces for our Bride Melissa at the Stone House last weekend. Over sized pilsner vases were filled with river stones for a natural touch but then the vases were filled with cascading phalaenopsis orchids. Although the color them of the wedding was purple in all other areas, this couple went for a clean, uncluttered look by switching the table flowers to all white. Dramatic but elegant was the general feel of the room once all the flowers were in place.
These amazing orchids appear to be an emerging trend among our couples, with quite a few weddings in recent weeks including them. Now that I'm actively booking weddings for 2014, it appears that this trend will continue. Although more expensive than other centerpiece options, they cascading orchids tend to cost less then their dome shaped, above eye level cousins using hydrangeas, roses, etc. which really is a plus for those seeking elegantly over sized without the high price tag. to see these and more of wedding designs, be sure to check out our Centerpiece category on this website.
