I capture the unspoken — the glances, the silences — drawing from New York's pulse and the richness of global cultures. Every wedding is its own intricate narrative. Rooted in theatre and life's everyday rhythms, I document moments both transient and timeless.

Top Wedding Flower Trends for 2024

The world of wedding flowers is constantly evolving, and as we approach 2024, there are exciting new trends on the horizon. These trends reflect a blend of contemporary style and personal expression, ensuring that every wedding has a unique floral signature. Here’s a look at the top wedding flower trends for 2024.


Sustainable and Eco-Friendly Choices: Sustainability is more than just a buzzword; it’s a movement that’s increasingly influencing wedding choices. In 2024, expect to see couples opting for locally-sourced flowers, seasonal blooms, and even potted plants that guests can take home as a reminder of the special day. These eco-friendly choices reduce the wedding’s carbon footprint while adding a touch of natural beauty.

Bold Color Palettes: While pastels have been a long-standing favorite, 2024 is all about bold and vibrant colors. Think deep purples, bright oranges, and rich blues. These lively hues can add energy and personality to any wedding setting, from bouquets to centerpieces.

3. Dried and Preserved Flowers: Dried flowers aren’t just a fleeting trend; they’re here to stay. Their longevity and rustic charm make them a popular choice for 2024 weddings. Expect to see creative uses of dried lavender, pampas grass, and even preserved roses.

4. Statement Installations: Large floral installations continue to be a favorite for couples looking to make a statement. Whether it’s a floral arch for the ceremony or a hanging installation over the dance floor, these dramatic displays are sure to be a focal point.


5. Edible Flowers: Incorporating edible flowers into wedding cuisine and cocktails is a trend that’s gaining momentum. Not only do they add a unique touch to your menu, but they also offer a feast for the eyes.

6. Mixed Textures: Combining different types of flowers and foliage to create varied textures is a trend that adds depth and interest to floral arrangements. From smooth petals to rough bark, these contrasting elements can create a visually stunning effect.


7. Minimalist Bouquets: On the other end of the spectrum, minimalist bouquets are also making a mark. Simple, elegant arrangements with a focus on one or two types of flowers offer a clean and modern look.

8. Flower Crowns and Hairpieces: Flower crowns are not just for boho weddings anymore. In 2024, expect to see more brides and bridesmaids embracing floral hairpieces, adding a romantic and whimsical touch to their ensemble.


9. Heirloom Varieties: There’s a growing interest in heirloom and vintage flower varieties, with their unique shapes and scents. These flowers often have a story, adding a layer of meaning and nostalgia to wedding arrangements.

10. Interactive Floral Experiences: Finally, interactive floral experiences, such as build-your-own bouquet stations or flower arranging workshops for guests, are on the rise. These activities not only entertain guests but also allow them to engage with the beauty of the occasion.


As we look forward to 2024, these wedding flower trends offer a glimpse into how couples are choosing to express their love and commitment through nature’s bounty. From sustainable choices to bold colors, each trend provides an opportunity to make your wedding uniquely yours.
