What’s in store for 2020 Wedding Trends?
Luckily for us, rustic, outdoor, garden weddings aren’t going anywhere in 2020. Australians are still seeking out the spring sunshine, long summer evenings and warm autumn days to tie the knot. And, we don’t blame them!
Besides the weather, what other factors draw couples to decide an outdoor wedding venue?
Let’s face it ambiance and atmosphere make a wedding. Billowing hills, stunning countryside and lush greenery all adds to the effect of an outdoor wedding. People naturally connect with nature, so being outdoors creates a sense of calm and beauty that indoors can’t always bring.
The feeling of rustic
We’re rustic. How good is that word? A rustic wedding at Flowerdale is a wedding that injects a piece of country, vintage chic ideas into the ceremony and reception. We love to include natural or nature-inspired elements, décor and style.
Let’s talk flowers. There is a strong theme being featured in many of our weddings this season. The natural, unstructured style garden bouquet. But it’s next level. Gone are the asymmetrical, triangle shapes. Replaced with the crescent moon shape, unstructured with a range of native blooms; eucalyptus and protea. We mentioned rustic above? Well flowers are going very rustic!
Flower Petals, so-long confetti
Whoever thought throwing a bunch of tiny pieces of paper was a good idea!?
Lavender rose petals and scrunched autumn leaves are fantastic alternatives. Keeping the planet clean, but not giving up on the tradition. Bubble blowing is also an idea, however if it’s a windy day, not so much.
Mr Chips and the rest of the gang
If you love animals, our estate is for you. Animals are can be a huge part of a couple’s wedding day and Flowerdale is no exception. We have had many gorgeous couples brings along their K-9 family members to be a part of their day.
We also have our own plethora of animals to enjoy. But, don’t turn away or your bouquet will be quickly munched by our infamous Mr Chips!
