Although the term "trend" is used a lot these days, let's define what this term means: Using the internet as the resource,-a "trend" has to do with "a drift, a style, a vogue, a general direction, to have a general tendency, - to be currently popular. In the industry, the important yearly or season trends that apply here are "style, vogue," and especially "to be currently popular."
Today's styles and what is popular are very important issues to a wedding consultant, to a wedding planner, but also, most important to a bride. Sometimes the trends each wedding season are the same, but a lot of times, the trends are different. True, a bride is interested in her wedding accessories, and in her wedding jewelry. However,she wants to have the very best when it comes to her bridal bouquet. Since she will carry her flowers/bouquet, and since her bridal bouquet will be out front, she wants to make sure that her flowers stand out. As she chooses her florist, she has to put a lot of trust in him or her, as to what the florist will create. An example of something that is happening in the flower industry today which has become popular, is the use of what some might call - "weeds." But in fact, "weeds" indeed are used as fillers or foliage in bridal bouquets, other wedding bouquets, wedding centerpieces, and in large wedding bouquet baskets. Some of the types of foliage or fillers that are used are: sage, jasmine, sweet peas, Queen Anne's Lace, thistles, and pods. Although some of these types of weeds are not familiar to most of us, they are still being used in wedding bouquets today..If you have ever seen a bouquet with these types of plants or weeds, you will find that they really do add to a bouquet or to a flower arrangement. They really are representative of a current trend in the wedding/florist industry.
So once again, as you can see, trends in the wedding industry do change from year to year. And yes, a bride is interested in what her wedding accessories or in what her wedding jewelry will be, but her bridal bouquet is most important to her also.
The wedding flower industry in 2012 has added to its repertoire or to its business service, the addition of "weeds" - such as sage, thistles, and other types of weeds, as mentioned above. As the florist creates different types of wedding bouquets, it is currently popular to use these different types of weeds as fillers. It is found that weeds such as jasmine, sage, thistles, Queen Anne's Lace and others do definitely add to the beauty of wedding bouquets, - large or small.
