Top 5 Spring Runway Trends Also Seen in Wedding Decor

NY Fashion week is over, did you catch some of the latest runway trends? I personally eat, sleep, and breathe fashion. I love following my favorite designers on Instagram, and seeing what beautiful creations they’re going to make next. While working for Afloral.com, I also noticed some huge similarities between fashion trends and wedding trends.

This season, here are the ones that stuck out to me the most.

Pretty Pastels

From lavender to mint, Spring Fashion week brought many soft hues. You can also see this trend transition over to the popular vintage wedding trend, with similarly colored bouquets and wedding decor.

Tea Length Frocks

Designers take tea length skirts a step further, and turn them into tea length wedding dresses. I love this look, it’s absolutely perfect for a retro wedding.

These striped pants are going to be one of the hottest bottoms this season. I love how this striped trend transitions over to bouquet wrap, giving your wedding bouquet a trendy twist.

Orange is the New Black

Although I’m personally not a huge fan of orange (it does nothing for my complexion), I can see that orange frocks and orange wedding flowers will be equally as popular this season.

Five Must Haves for a Vintage Wedding Bouquet

I am so in love with the latest vintage wedding trend. There’s rustic vintage, glam vintage, the list is endless. But, at the end of the day, there are five elements that every good vintage wedding bouquet needs.

1. Soft, Muted Tones

My favorite vintage wedding colors are blush and lavender. You will never see a vintage wedding bouquet with bright pops of color. The beauty of a vintage bouquet can be found in it’s  soft, romantic, and understated palette.

2. Charms, Charms, Charms

Bouquet charms are a cute wedding accessory, and a great way to honor loved ones that are dear to your heart, or have passed on. I personally would  put a picture of my adorable fur child (yes, my puppy) in one of those charms. I’m sure some of you dog moms definitely agree.

3. Baby’s Breath

This wedding flower is a vintage bouquet must have. It acts as a simple and classic filler. It’s inexpensive, but really adds to your wedding bouquet, making it look more lush and full.

4. Satin Ribbon

Satin ribbon is timeless.  Wrap your bouquet with this classic wedding accessory. I don’t recommend using striped, patterned, or shimmery ribbon to wrap your vintage wedding bouquet, as it will totally clash with the simple style.

5. A Simple Manicure

You want your soft romantic bouquet to be the center of attention, so don’t ruin it with bright, tacky nails.
