Make the best use of florals if you desire your wedding décor to be simple and modest. Take a leaf out of Summiyya Patni and Arnav Shah’s minimal wedding décor filled with delicate floral arrangements
Fashion blogger and co-founder of House of Misu, Summiyya Patni and Arnav Shah’s dream wedding was all about the little details. The brief was simple—a play of pastels and an all-white floral arrangement. Karen Barnes, Floral Designer, Interflora India, who was instrumental in executing this vision, shares: “The wedding ceremony was held in the morning and the same venue was transformed for the evening reception party. We chose flowers in assorted shades of white with a hint of blush pink. Big bloom roses, hydrangeas, tulips, calla lilies, carnations, cymbidium orchids and gorgeous Phalaenopsis were used to decorate the aisle, arch, bar, photo-op area and centrepieces for the tables.”
TREND ALERT: This year is all about drama and lush colours with plenty of greenery, floral details and textures. The current trend is a play on the olfactory system. The idea is to create signature fragrances that set the mood for each event. This is achieved by using candles, flowers, aroma diffusers and scented oils.
WHAT COUPLES WANT: Light and airy colours—blush, mint and peach—have been popular for a while, however, we are going to see colour palettes start to deepen this year. “Richer, dramatic hues like burgundy will appear in floral arrangements, alongside edgy black accents. Some popular colour combinations are champagne and burgundy, navy blue and dusty rose, gold and mauve, and burgundy and navy,” points Barnes.
DITCH THIS TREND: While a rustic theme is still popular, it’s becoming less ‘barnyard’ and more ‘forest’. “There is nothing novel about photo booths anymore. Instead, invest in professional photographers known for their candid photography. It’s time to ditch the Mason jars and signage boards. Another outdated trend is cluttered tables—minimise the number of table-top accessories and ensure that food and drinks are easily accessible,” declares Barnes.
