Neon flowers, tropical clashes, fresh grasses and full scale suspended floral arrangements are fuelling the wedding flower trends for 2019. And who better to guide you through them than Kate Crowther-Green of Rebel Rebel, London’s superstar florist that’s created florals for shoots in Vogue, workshops in Fortnum & Mason and premium retailers such as Burberry.
Suspended Installations – both full ceiling and individual organic sculptural pieces – are really in fashion and can be seen all over social media.
Floral Walls with Neon – neon has become so on-trend now that couples are including it in their wedding styling. Often, they want this framed in some way – so a flower or foliage wall is a perfect statement.
Country Clashes – a real must this year is a clash of the tropics with the English garden. Rather than going full tropical, florists are mixing tropical foliage and flowers such as monstera leaves and anthurium, with garden flowers to create a softer look that still makes a statement.
Dried and fresh grasses – full of romanticism, grasses, dried flowers and meadow style installations will be big this year. Think sand dunes and fluffy fairy-tale aisles.

Coloured foliage and tropicals
Using tropicals is becoming more and more fashionable, and creating colour palettes with spray-paint is a way of lifting this and creating something which really makes a unique statement.
Heavy Florals – the Dutch masters are always going to influence floral design; classic vases with flower heavy arrangements will always look elegant and beautiful.
