Ombre style is a unique wedding trend this year.  
The use of Ombre is normally monochromatic with graduating hues; light to dark.  
Pictures speak for themselves. Enjoy the visual of Ombre!

Ombre clearly isn't limited to flowers.  
Observe the world around you...
Ombre is hot everywhere!

Last weekend I was fortunate to have spent my time at Koehler and Dramm Wholesale Florist in Minneapolis at a design show called From This Day Forward - The Newest Wedding Trends and How to Sell them.  Sharon McGukin, AIFD, AAF, PFCI was the featured designer.
She shared with us four wedding trends and I will share the first of these in this post.  It is referred to as Boho-Pop.  The colors are that of the 90's Bohemian/Pop Art craze revisited.
  This style reflects big pops of bright colors against a neutral setting.

Floral ingredients may contain... Pincushion Protea, King Protea, Peonies,
Tulips, Freesia, Daffodils,Acacia, Gloriosa Lilies, Asiatic Lilies, Gerbera,
Oncidium Orchids, Succulents, Wheatgrass, Xanadu and Monstera
Other elements at the wedding may include... fringe, tassels, woven accents,
DIY, pop art graphics & geometrics.  This would be a super social event using wedding hashtags. 
Comic book themes - decor, photo booths etc...
