2016 is coming to a close and we’ve loved every minute of it! As we wrap up another year of sharing the most fabulous Oklahoma weddings and the talented vendors that brought them to life, we couldn’t help but reflect on some of our favorite wedding details found within the pages of the mags. Over the next week, we’ll be looking back at our favorite wedding trends found in the 2016 issues from gorgeous wedding gowns to awe-worthy florals! We’re kicking off the week with a look at our favorite florals. Take a look at these blooming wedding floral trends, and stay tuned each day to see what trends we hope stick around for 2017! Cheers to the new year!

Floral & Greenery Adorned Altars

Embellishing altars with cascading blooms and lush greenery isn’t a new concept, but with an exploding amount of blooms and creativity this season, it’s definitely one we don’t see going out of style any time soon!

Artistic Installations

We love to see our local florist get more and more creative with their designs each year. The floral installation and backdrop pieces are the perfect way to incorporate some visual pieces throughout your wedding decor.

Greenery Swag

Maybe one of the hottest wedding trends in 2016 was the incorporation of greenery swag beyond your traditional altar scene or backdrops. Seating to tablescapes were rocking this earthy and organic look this season, and we can’t wait to see how this trend develops in 2017!

Non-Traditional Bridal Floral

We’ll always love a classic bridal bouquet, but we can’t help but swoon over the latest florals we’ve seen brides and bridesmaids carrying (or wearing!) this year. Wristlets, dress swag and even floral garlands have been making appearances at the altar.

Straight out of a storybook Parisian garden fairytale, we’re so in love with Meg and Matt’s gorgeous wedding planned by Judy Lehmbeck Bridal & Party. With the reception set at a private residence, the couple had free reign to create the most spectacular set-up with help from Marianne’s Rentals and Innovative Event Solutions. Strung lights, hanging pink umbrellas and florals and gold, black and white table decor set the scene for the lovely al fresco evening! Guests danced in the garden to live music from Dave and the Wavetones of Box Talent Agency, and celebrated the couple with a decadent five-layer floral embellished cake from Amy Cakes. Meg stunned in her gorgeous strapless lace wedding gown, while her bridesmaids took her side in dresses from Prim. The evening of love and celebration was all captured by Cameron Wilson Videographers, giving this sweet couple the gift of reliving their special day for a lifetime! Cheers to these newlyweds!
