2022 Wedding Flower Trends
It’s important to choose details that you and your partner love if you’re planning a wedding for 2022, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. Whether you want your wedding to go viral or you simply need a place to start when choosing the décor for your big day, it’s always a good idea to consider the latest trends.
There are some good ones when it comes to wedding flower trends in 2022! They include:
- Bold color
- Organic arrangements
Unique plants and flowers
Bright Wedding Bouquet With Shades of Red, Pink, and Yellow: Wedding Wire
It’s true that pastels and neutrals will always be classic choices for a wedding, but in 2022, we’re going to see brides and grooms get more comfortable with using bright, bold colors in their flower arrangements. Think wedding flowers with sunflowers, blue delphinium, and purple lilies.
Bold colors will be popular, but even more popular will be the use of unique color combinations. Think shades of orange and yellow flowers with Pantone’s Very Peri, fuchsia and purple paired with neutrals, or pink, coral, and green.
Organic Floral Arrangement With Overhanging Flowers: Nic Williams
Perfectly arranged flowers that are symmetrical from every angle are going to take a backseat in 2022. Instead, brides and grooms will be looking at more organic arrangements.
Flowers and greenery will be arranged in ways that make them look like they were plucked directly from nature. Think tendrils of greenery draped on an arch made of branches, florals with uneven heights, and bouquets that look like you picked them fresh from the garden that very morning.
This is good news for brides and grooms who want to save a little money by doing the flowers themselves. There are a lot of wedding flowers you can grow in your own garden! A few of our favorites that bloom each season include:
- Spring: Daffodils, Tulips, Hyacinths, Lily of the Valley, Forsythia
- Summer: Globe Amaranth, Hydrangea, Dahlias, Hibiscus, Black-Eyed Susan
- Fall: Sunflowers, Flowering Kale, Aster, Dianthus, Chrysanthemum
- Winter: Snowdrops, Winterberry, Witch Hazel, Ornamental Cabbage
Green Wreath Featuring Roses and Oranges: Martha Stewart
Unique Plants and Flowers
Instead of choosing flowers that everyone knows, like roses and baby’s breath, brides and grooms are going to choose unique plants and flowers that make arrangements look textural.
For example, instead of vases of flowers with a little greenery, things like long grasses, ruffled palm leaves, and even moss will be used. Unexpected choices, like protea, and downright weird flowers, like snap dragon seed pods and squiggly-petaled passionflower will become more common. Some arrangements will even include edibles, like plums, oranges, and strawberries.
This trend might just be the one for you if you’re wondering if wedding flowers are worth it. If you don’t like the idea of shelling out thousands for roses that are beautiful, but aren’t exactly memorable or personal, you’ll love that you can spend your money on unforgettable, meaningful arrangements instead.
Flower-Covered Arch Over a Small Reception Table: Pure Wow
Bigger is better in 2022! Maybe it has something to do with the fact that we have all been spending more time indoors in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, but brides and grooms want their guests to be stunned on their wedding day with oversized arrangements.
It started with flower walls a few years ago, but there’s a lot more out there to explore. Use a tall flower stand to display a flower arrangement with overflowing tendrils of wisteria, multiple arches covered in blooms lining the aisle, or reception spaces covered in round floral chandeliers.
Although many brides may want to go big with their bouquets, this trend is primarily for decorative flowers at the ceremony and reception.

Combining Dried and Fresh Florals
Dried flowers have been popular for a few years now, and they will continue to be popular in 2022. However, the new year will bring a twist that includes combining dried flowers with fresh flowers.
Wedding flowers with eucalyptus will still be popular, but arrangements will combine details like pampas grass with roses, dried thistle with yarrow, and lunaria with peonies.
Don’t forget the details! Dried and fresh florals look beautiful in boutonnieres, flower crowns, corsages, and as cake decorations.
Reception Tables Decorated With Green Potted Plants: Rust and Thistle
Earthy and Natural
Earthy, natural hues like tan, cream, and dusty mauve have been popular with boho brides for a few years. This trend will continue into 2022 with a focus on earthy, natural arrangements.
It won’t be enough to choose flowers in muted hues. Instead, brides and grooms will choose natural floral details, like branches and ferns. Brides and grooms will explore all-green arrangements and using different types of leaves for texture, while wedding succulents in terracotta pots and potted plants will decorate ceremony and reception spaces.
2022 is full of unique and beautiful wedding flowers! Whether you’re doing flowers on your own to save money or you’re hiring a florist to create stunning arrangements, the ideas on this list will help you choose the latest trend that helps you create the perfect mood on your wedding day.
