Warm metallics
While silver and gold are classic favourites, copper is having a moment! Copper will be popping up everywhere, from table décor to invitations. A simple way to incorporate it into your wedding is by spray painting recycled tins to use as vases which is a new take on the industrial style.

Hanging floral installations are a creative way to make your décor unique and eye catching. Take advantage of this style by using hanging flower pieces as a background for photos. Suspended florals over tables create a more intimate atmosphere for your guests, incorporating ferns, fairy lights and trailing ivy to add a romantic touch.

Think rustic, leafy bouquets or green table garlands-incorporating succulents and aromatic herbs like rosemary and mint. Try adding berries, fruit, acorns and twigs for added texture. Our free-spirited Great British Florist wild-flower arrangements epitomise this laid back trend.

  Bohemian This trend is showing no signs of fading away, so take this style to the next level by using feathers galore, antlers, wood slices, open-sided tipis and fur throws. These elements are perfectly complimented by bleached out colours or a neutral colour palette of coffee and cream.
