During our most recent Mia Grace Monday, we were lucky enough to have Kim from Stems Florist come into the shop to discuss the process of creating your bridal bouquet as well as floral trends for the upcoming year! We’ve put together all the wonderful tips and trends we received from Kim to assist you during one of the most crucial components of wedding planning!

Bridal Bouquet Trends - Fall 2018


The trending modern floral arrangement is an influenced European design that includes different textures and more flat elements. For example, Stems Florist has used roots from the flowers, deer antlers, and driftwood to add texture to the bouquet. The flat object, such as shells, can be used to outline the bouquet. The modern bouquet looks best with a more traditional bridal gown due to all the elements present in the floral design.

Traditional bouquets are usually compact arrangements with exposed stems. This design can have many different features, such as greenery outlining the bouquet or maybe embellishments placed inside the flowers. Typically, the hand-tied bouquet can work with any bridal gown.


The combination of greens and flowers has become very popular for the boho bridal look! The greens create such a wonderful texture to such a romantic piece. Not only do these bouquets accent soft and whimsical wedding gowns, but they look fantastic when paired with a heavily embellished dress! The competing textures actually work well against each other.

Cascading Bridal Bouquet White Roses

Just Greens

A bouquet trend that is definitely on the rise this year is all greenery! Instead of complimenting the large leaves with bright flowers, combine them with bright greens to create a simple yet lush design. Many brides have also been pairing these bridal arrangements with tall green center pieces!


The most popular floral arrangement this year is the cascading bouquet. Although these bouquets can trail the floor, they typically do not. Pair this elegant design with a traditional or bohemian gown!

This floral design is more traditional, but still a very popular choice. This bouquet is fully opened and is outlined with larger leaves. The simplistic design work well with traditional wedding gowns.
