The wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is one of the most anticipated events in the British calendar this year and there has been a lot of speculation over how the pair will celebrate their nuptials.
With the invitations having been sent out, attention has now turned to how they’ll be decorating the church and their reception venue. Flowers are an important part of many ceremonies, and now we’ve learned which blooms the loved-up couple have picked for their big day.
Seasonal beech, birch and hornbeam, as well as foxgloves and white garden roses, will be sourced from the Crown Estate and Windsor Great Park gardens, while peonies will also feature in the service as they are reportedly Meghan’s favourite blooms.
According to an Instagram post by Kensington Palace, the floral designs will “reflect the wild and natural landscapes from which many of the plants will be drawn”.
The BBC also revealed that the wedding cake – which will be lemon and elderflower flavour – will be decorated with fresh spring flowers.
The flower arrangements are an important part of many weddings and making sure they fit in seamlessly with the rest of the decor and overall theme is essential to create the desired effect. It’s why hiring wedding decorators in Hampshire can be a good idea if you’re not sure where to start with all of these elements of wedding planning.
Small touches, like matching wedding chair covers to the colours found in the floral arrangements, can give a wedding venue a more cohesive feel, for instance.
Although many weddings are bound to be inspired by that of Harry and Meghan, there are a few other floral trends to watch out for this year, including the growing use of potted plants instead of cut flowers, and suspended blooms to give a venue a truly magical appearance.
