Wedding Trend Watch: Floral Texture

We recently spotted some of our favorite out-of-the-box bouquets from recent issues cropping up on inspiration boards, which can mean only one thing: floral texture and high-structure bouquets will have a big moment this 2023 wedding season. Whether you’re inspired by the dried fronds of the Utah desert or a vibrant and bursting palette of blooms, scroll through a few of our favorite arrangements to help bring more trending floral texture to your bridal bouquet.

Utah Bride and Groom’s Floral Texture Favorites

Sure, when it comes to white wedding flowers, roses rule. But in this shoot at Washington Schoolhouse Hotel, Allsion Baddley of La Fete Floral and Design showcases atypical beauties like luminaria, astilbe, fuzzy grasses and skeleton fern to steal the show. “This is a very seasonless look,” she explains. “You can use most of these flowers any time of the year. Spring, winter or fall. They even work in the mid-summer when you’re wanting to cool off.”

For a set of decidedly masculine wedding details, planner Mara Mazdzer of Fuse Weddings and Events declares contemporization as the key. In this layout, refreshingly out-of-the-box elements such as live, cloud-like cotton, twigs and branches offer foliage options far from traditional floral texture. For the tablescape, Mazdzer invites stylish minimalist accents with high-structure rose and dried foliage.

Leading the floral texture craze, dried flowers are an increasingly popular way to bring a bit of character to arrangements. Echinops (or blue globe thistle) is a standout pod in the dried-bloom revolution. Here, limonium, feather grasses and begonia offer lightweight volume for a petite posy. See all the arrangements from this Desert-Inspired Bouquets shoot here.

Can you say scroll-stopper? This unmissable orange arrangement by La Fête Floral & Design combines all our favorite citrusy sun-up hues, including dahlias, garden roses, gomphrena, ranunculus, bittersweet ornithogalum, and lively twigs bringing fresh meadow magic to the bouquet.

Taking cues from the black, magenta and gold floral wallpaper adorning the foyer at Utah brunch favorite Sunday’s BestDecoration, Inc. created show-stopping yet low-profile centerpieces in bright and cheery magenta, warm coral, deep red and bubble-gum pink. Layers of floral texture and varieties included garden spray roses, dahlias, anemones, peonies, orchids and nerine lilies for bursting-at-the-seams lushness.
